Alex, Much as I'd love to find DAEK or a similar Mini, they have gotten way too pricey over here!??!  Instead, I recently picked up a 27 year old BMW Z3 Roadster with 36,000 miles on it for way less than a decent Mini.   Same colors as DAEK was; BRG with biscuit leather interior.

Alex, how the hell are you?  Say hello too Mike W.!  I would have had him build me another car when we spoke last year, but didn't fit in the budget! 

Funnily enough I was talking to Mikey at the Stafford/Bingley show 10 days ago.

I ought to wave my rather lovely Clubbie Estate at you...

My smarter than me iPhone 12 won't work, it insists on adding a 1 in front of your number and it bounces back undeliverable?

Try me at 86 zero 39 one 17 hundred.

EDIT - Hotel, there is one too many digits (11 instead of 10) in your number posted?
Oops! Its 9620. Ill call later. Wanna talk boats. We are thinking about living on a boat and doing the loop.

Thanks Willie B.!  I tried the email address in his profile and it must be old, it bounced back undeliverable.  The email in my profile is also old, but it will still forward to my newer correct email.

Weird?  When I click on anyones name and view the profile, their email address is shown. When I click on mine it's missing?  but when I go to edit my profile, my email address and mobile number are both there?

EDIT - Hotel, this is what I got when I sent an email from my gmail account:

backstay, if you click on hotelcalif's screen name it will open a box that has his email address in it. You must be logged on for that to work.

Yo! Hotel C, how are you?  I am alive and surviving, semi-retired, what's going on?  I don't visit here much, since trying to locate my old mini, DAEK last year which was an impossible mission. When that failed, I picked up a low mileage '97 Z3 for summer cruising.  A little bird said you were asking after me.  Probably easier to text me.  I will see if I can figure out how to send a message through here.  Cheers!!
