Lovingly composed shot of it, Bill..I am guessing you would like to pilot it on a spin down to the local fish'n'chippery!
Bill Phillips: I would Ray and would probably demolish half of Droitwich High street

I agree with Chris- but the man is forbidden to speak!
Bill Phillips: Hahaha his lips look to be well sealed
Very good Bill, it looks as if that wheel is turning. Very clean too.
Bill Phillips: Ah you have spotted my twiddle. I would explain how I did it but you would fall asleep

Do I see a McLaren plate in the far left, Bill? If so this engine probably goes a lot faster than the McLaren Formula One cars do at the moment.
Bill Phillips: Hahaha this was made in the days when McLaren knew what they were doing
They certainly do attract attention!
Bill Phillips: People cannot resist them...even those who never saw them working for real

Great title and a great picture - it looks very shiny and well cared for
Bill Phillips: They are a labour of love for their owners Anne
A nice abstract, Bill, a lovely engine.
Bill Phillips: She was in beautiful condition Frank
Beautiful machines aren't they, I love the sound of them as they stand in 'ticking over' mode.

I like the man framed by the wheel...
Bill Phillips: He is a study in concentration Larry
