Not a spitfire mate, they were both GT6s :thumb:

The Marcos had a very good Ash chassis, trouble was that at anything above 100mph you could turn the wheel lock to lock and it would just keep going straight on :lol: :lol: :lol:

Nobody in Hollywood actually pays for those things&#33; Toyota probably gave him a million bucks, plus a million to his favourite Charidy, make him look like he cares about the environment, and his gran gets a free car.
