    Another Member From South Africa

    We have another new member from South Africa so make him welcome. Jason if you have any questions or anything don't hesitate to ask. You may know Gian or "Q" or some of the other members from your country. Here is Jason's answer to my email.

    Hi Ron

    Pleased to meet you. I totally understand and have had my cobra for 2 years now.

    I went to my first car show today and the guys from the cobra club of South Africa gave me the website details. I am a member of a number of forums this side and an absolute petrol head.

    I look forward to chatting with the guys in the US and representing our team this side of the ocean.

    Kind Regards

    Jason

    Welcome aboard Jason and enjoy the ride.

    Unlike the zoo, you can feed and provide beer to this Silverback.

    Now if Nomad knew the alphabet and was clever he would have stated that "a friend of "Q's" is a friend of "R's".

    But as usual Nomad missed the boat, which is kind of scary when you remember that he used to work on the ferry.

    That's interesting. So I'm guessing the ship is not at the terminal.

    Must be in the garage.

    I also don't get it! Would it say "plane" and "terminal" if that was the local airport?
    I asked Walter Roehrl: How can this be 700 hp on dirt road, I can't even keep my Fiat Uno with 45 hp going straight? W: It's all about the tires. - (right...).

    Dominik,

    Here we normally refer to the Terminal as the loading or deplaning part of the airport. If the plane is out on the tarmac or elsewhere we would normally just refer to it as the plane. Referring to an airport means everything associated with one.
