You just had to post one of this guy and his engine, his expression says it all, no further words needed.

Superb series, converted to perfection Paul. Series would look good as prints, could do a trade at these events. Ron.

Cheers Scott, Ian, Stuart, Dave, Tel and Ron.

Having met the bloke Dave, you can probably appreciate more than most how much he enjoys his job, and that's what I'm glad I captured in his expression ... didn't want out-and-out smiles, just a contented smile like this one.

Thanks all, enjoy your weekend.
