    Will I Have My Car For Trax?

    A wee bit of fun for y'all - I ordered my TwinTop on 5th July and was told then that I would either get it late August or early September.

    Now as we know Trax is coming up and ideally I'd like to go. It's going to be hellishly tight - the 'eight weeks' the dealer quoted me would take us up to Wednesday 30th August.

    The question is, will I get it by then or not?

    Place your bets now (in a Banzai style)

    Some Smartie facts for you Andy...

    Smarties are brightly colored, sugar coated sweets with a milk chocolate center. The mix comprises eight colors - red, yellow, orange, green, mauve, pink, brown and blue. The orange sweet has orange flavoring in the chocolate center.

    Some interesting Smarties facts:

    - Nearly 17,000 Smarties are eaten every minute in the UK.

    - Nestlé Rowntree has produced 5,000 million Smarties caps over the last 25 years.

    - When production of Smarties resumed after the Second World War, Smarties were made with plain chocolate because of the shortage of milk.

    - If the Smarties eaten in one year were laid end to end it would equal almost 102,000 km and if they were put in tubes and these put end to end it would equal almost 29,000 km.

    Forgot this one Geoff:

    Smarties were introduced in 1937 and are still the most popular sweet and one of Nestlé’s major confectionary brands. Smarties are manufactured in York, England.

    And this little fact:

    They were originally called Chocolate Beans but were renamed a year later.

    I always wondered why they all tasted the same except for the orange ones.

    Anyway, back to the thread topic..........................No chance!!!
