Hi Gina here,

I thought all of this was behind me. As you know, we were on our way to another kit car show, (they all seemed to melt into one), we had drawn the short straw to drive the old Transit arctic, it had been replaced with a brand new one, because it was just too slow, but when we conceived `Lolocost,' it had a reprieve in order to pull the Lolocost shop.

Early on in the journey, we had reached a small but long incline and our rig was going slower and slower, Richard was rocking backwards and forwards in his seat to help the momentum, stupidly I found myself doing it as well in time together with Richard, I realized what I was doing and stopped rocking before correcting him, embarrassed , he brought up the subject of the mag wars, ``what would you do if you were Peter,(Filby), and Dennis (Tanner), had published a photograph in his magazine of you with a `Pinocio' nose? At this point Richard had to drop down to second gear, it was a big jump, I lurched forward, the revs rose, and in the true fashion of a `truckers moll', I unwrapped, and passed him a `Yorkie' bar from a big box from under the seat that we had bought, on offer, from cash and carry when we collected the dog food.

I wasn't in the mood for a `Dennis' discussion', and tried to change the subject as I unwrapped mine,`` these don't seem to be as big as they used to be'', I stated. Suddenly from behind there came the first line of `Colonel Bogey' from some air horns followed by blasts from an assortment of other car horns and hooters, and one inlet manifold wolf whistle, ``there's a rake of Robin Hoods coming up fast , all with headlights on and hazards going'', Richard said. There were about a dozen.

I recognized them instantly as the Scottish chapter of the owners club, probably the wildest of all the branches, but as they were Richards fellow countrymen, they were the most loyal, and least critical of Robin Hood Engineering.

We had always attended Ingliston kit car show and had a big customer base in Scotland. Our other new Transit arctic seemed only inches from our rear end, almost pushing us up the hill. The mob came past us in both outside lanes, two by two in formation, each car rebelliously different, waving and gesticulating, obviously very happy and ready for a good show. Bringing up the rear, topless, was,``Jimmy', that's what we called him, and his woman, with their `tam-o'-shanter hats, they slowed right down to our speed and she indicated ,that as always, she had brought home made Scottish short bread for us. Jimmy finally waved us good-by, changed down a gear, (in his immaculate V8 Robin Hood), and truthfully accelerated away to rejoin the rest of the pack.

Very quickly now, forgotten, was Dennis, the Yorkie bars, even the previous hill, as we were gaining speed heading down hill now.

Richard, grinning, was enthusing about the noise of Jimmy's car, but more importantly the smell, yes, the smell of the Castrol `R' oil he was running on, could we make it into a woman's perfume and sell it through Lolocost, ? Did I know the smells a man preferred ?, did I know that Napoleon, after a successful campaign, would send a runner in advance with a letter telling Josephine,``not to wash he was coming home''? Fortunately the technical line phone rang, it was Jimmy with the V8 's VOSA tip off phone call, the rest Richard has told you.

I enjoyed my 21 character forming year stint at Robin Hood, it changed my life, but I am not sorry it's over, I hope you can find some bargains amongst my share of the `Forgotten Lock-Up Treasure', GINA. xx. (if you have not seen it, see `slowzim' for the full story).
