    How do

    Hi folks,

    My name is Jon.

    My other half and I are based in Derbyshire and have just purchased our first American car, a '72 Dodge Demon that was imported from california.
    We've had a lot of classic British tin over the last few years - mostly MG's Triumph and Jaguars and now it feels like it's time for something completely different.
    After reading classic American for 3 years and much browsing of the interweb we've decided that we wanted to start with a mopar.

    Anyway... that's enough waffle from me...
    All the best,

    Jon.

    -Jon.

    Welcome aboard Jon, lovely motor you got there. Great colour too! Any plans or leaving as is?
    As an aside, I quite fancied getting a sloth as a pet but they're much more expensive than I thought.

    Some familiar faces from the old R&S /NSRA days!

    No real plans for the mope... well, I'm trying to piece together a set of small bolt pattern rallye wheels, but that's about it for now. I didn't intend on spending quite what we did on the demon, but the shell is so nice we couldn't walk away from it. Nicola and I are getting married next may and Nicola, bless her said "stuff it, let's just blow the wedding fund on the car" So that's what we did. Just need to save up again for a wedding now. Still, we've got the car sorted for the day so I reccon that'll save a few quid???

    Hi, like your intended's way of thinking. A wedding is just a day and a piece of paper the car is so much more and will be used more than the dress the bride would have worn so good on you both.

    Sounds like a good wedding has been postponed..

    I've done a waspie and stockings but never a wedding dress. There are pictures but I never got a copy of them, so don't ask.
