Had to learn the fuel system to get the car to deliver its full potential but it didn't half go!

Re: Bluebird Project Online Shop

Thanks for that- the new cards with the glorious photo of the boat deploying the water brake in the sunshine against some lovely Scottish scenery following a 157mph run seem to be a hit...can't think why! ;)
