Rick,

Brilliant post, well done, but what's the prize ?

Suggestions:- a day at an auction with HJ
a day in the control room with Martyn
a day in Brazil with Mark
a day in a Citroen with DW
a day in anything but a BMW with Andrew Moorey
half a day in a Lada with CW
a table-top rally with Ian in Cape Town (TABLE-top - get it?!)
a world in peace in 2002

I know which I would choose !

Regards, and a very Happy Christmas to everyone, Adam
Re: Xmas Quiz - ladas are slow
i think half a day in a lada is a bit cruel, so i think it should only be 20 minutes in a lada ;-)
Re: Xmas Quiz - ian (cape town)
Would you be able to get it started within 20 minutes, Chris? :)
Re: Xmas Quiz - ladas are slow
what i meant to say was, it should be an hour - 40 minutes getting it started, and twenty minutes driving it ;-)

Re: Xmas Quiz - THe Growler
Sorry, could you repeat the question?
Table Mountain CPT, S.A - David Lacey
If anybody does indeed visit Cape Town, S.A, then the Table Mountain tour is a must!

The journey up on the revolving cable-car is awesome...
The views from the summit (aslong as the cloud has gone.....) are spectacular.

(Just a distant memory now!)

Re: Table Mountain CPT, S.A - ian (cape town)
Better if you walk it, from Kirstenbosch, David!
Get that fresh air in the lungs, and experience nature at its best!
I'm glad you've experienced our landmark, though.
come again!

And this is supposed to be easy? There are several chapters which are similar.

Is it a trick question? Like "Who owned the first motorbike?"
