  2. Err..........no thanks. I have some grass that I would like to watch grow. :rofl:
  3. Or maybe read your own posts :LOL:
  4. Those guys even predate mine and Hornet's vintage. :shock:

    I do recognise a couple of names though and I'm sure Paul will recognise some of them as well.
  5. Did they have motorcycles back then? :shock: :LOL:
  6. Motorcycles were invented before Horses, mate.
  7. I know most of those names...sigh.

    And I had the pleasure of staying with Maurice Quincey and his lovely wife in the late 1970's while I was visiting Melbourne for the Swann Series. A true gentleman.
  8. Mauries wifes name is Betty..........and as you would know rc36 Maurie could talk the ears off a wing nut. :)
  9. You see, that's what comes from getting old. I knew her name but couldn't remember it. Yes, Maurice is quite the raconteur, that's for sure.

    At the time, Maurice and Betty were in the process of having their beautiful home renovated so that it could accommodate Ray's wheelchair. His injury and the subsequent events to it were very traumatic for the whole family.
  10. ray is doing ok these days, thankfully.
