Helen, I sometimes do stuff like that. I call it, evaporating into the ether. Sometimes, if you are really lucky you can hit the 'tab back' key and it is just hiding a few pages back.
I wasn't going to comment on the race results, because of all the sooking about cheating. But the reality is that they all cheat as far as they can without quite breaking the the rules. Just bending them a bit is OK apparently. A bit like rubbing panels is OK but hitting someone isn't. :D

Dottie,
Did you know that Holden’s V8 Supercar team has developed a new suspension component?
It’s called a “Ford door handle”.
:lol: :lol: :lol:

I thought might be a bit like the suspension upgrade for the Customline, a chrome strip up the side so when the body rolled over in the cornering the chrome strip dug in and held it upright :lol:

T1,
The chrome strip was only to protect the paint. Like the whitewall tyres.
The big fins on the taillights were the aerodynamic stabilisation system.
And if you remember, the chrome swan or hawk on the bonnet was to help keep the pedestrian upright after you hit them. Much the same theory as the barbs on a spearhead. :? :mrgreen: :shock:
