New member - South Shields

Postby p4cks » Sat 21 Apr, 2018 6:43 pm

Hi, I never even knew I'd signed up to this forum but it looks like I did in September last year so apologies for the delay in introducing myself!

I'm Pack, from South Shields and I've had an Evora for about a year now having come from a string of VX220s. Here is a photo of it when I picked it up:

Took it on a Euro trip although I took it easy as I'd only owned it a month...

It came with brown interior which I couldn't live with so had it dyed red and the steering wheel made thicker

I also wanted it to sound a little better so I replaced the Janspeed with a straight through :fab :

Haha I'm learning all the time as this will be my first venture outside of VX220 ownership and forums for about ten years. They certainly weren't very aerodynamic were they?

Anyway I'm hoping to get to a meeting or two. This Saturday I'm at the car show in Beamish but won't be showing, just attending with my Dad.
