    Kripes! Perhaps you were a cat in a past life and still have some of your nine lives available.

    I thought of that myself, was wondering if the steering wheel is on the other side versus US cars.
    Yes, in the UK the driver is on the right side.

    Hi Nick, in my recent crash the airbags deployed and I found just that a shocking experience in its own right, though I assume they saved the wife and I from possibly serious injury. It was like being smacked in the face whilst having a shotgun fired next to me and left a sulphurous smell in the air.

    Glad you are OK and will live to collect again.
    Regards,

    Jerry

    Airbags have an awesome smell...not! Burns are typical on the wrists from the energy given off with the explosion. I forgot you all are backwards over there on that Island that's why he walked away. Here in US that would at minimum be a fly out to a trauma center. Glad to see you are ok and that your EK collection sill has a Daddy.
