Fabulous Thijs Shooting off on a tangent, the scenery reminds me of the Belgian hard men of cycling and training in all weather. Frans Verbeeck would be out in weather like that, freezing cold and the roads covered in snow, off on 200 plus km training run. Had it not been for a certain Eddy Merckx, Verbeeck would have been one of the greatest classics riders. Unfortunately, on something like 10 occasions, Verbeeck was 2nd to Mr Merckx!
Yes! About a year ago actually. The 2200TC needed work, a lot of work. Had the opportunity to buy this V8 and went for it. It made sense. This car combined the joy of instant motoring, whilst spending what I'd probably end up spending on doing up my 2200TC!
