Staffs Deltic I Think?

Saw a Type R coming down Keeling Rd from Birches Head towards Northwood Stadium Friday 28th around 2-3pm.

Belting looking car buddy and really stood out, if it wasn't you then who ever it is you are a very lucky guy as the car looks a beaut.

It genuinely is a nice looking car matey that's why I took more notice as you went past to be honest.

I am now driving a Megane Coupe

The sound of a Deltic under the domed roof of York or Kings Cross was something to behold! The music of two Napier 18 cylinder 2 strokes - fabulous except for the smoke
Interesting article about these engines here

Saw you again today buddy coming down Botteslow Street away from Hanley.

I was waiting to turn right off of Botts and didn't want to flash case you didn't know who I was and thought I was going to pull in front of you lol.

Car looked very clean again..

If you wave Stu I may very well think 'who on earth is that' but a post on here afterwards will explain. I will then know who to look for in future.
