Viewing suggestion.

  1. Take 1 oily rag and 1 container of petrol. Allow them to permeate the air.  Breath deeply 
    • A true petrol head will sense the car!
    • A non petrol head will cough and exit the room.
  2. Then access the following beautiful V8 - speaker volume high. in the content below.
  3. Sit back and enjoy the V8 with these photos.
