    I had the same affliction with Debbie Harry from Blondie fame mate. A guy in Gainsborough years ago, called Mick Street had a chippy named Skippers and it was the late night call in for late pub customers. He had a lass who worked in the shop who was the spitting image of DH. Boy did I lust after her or what.:D

    The quality of the video is really good Tony. As Coops says, some more details on the actual camera and how you have fitted would be nice.

    Looks great quality Tony, is it HD (rather than DH!!)?

    What type is it?

    Hearing too many horror stories recently where the dash cams have helped out. Shame in many ways we feel we have to use them to protect ourselves against fraudulent claims but it seems that's the way these days.

    Sorry I didn't get the info out on Sunday chaps, something cropped up. I did get some photo's taken but need a couple more and hope to get them tomorrow if I have chance at work. Done some more road testing and I'm very happy with it. I bought a 32gb, class 10 micro sd card. 010.jpg

    Not at all Colin, it was an eBay purchase. Said it was in the UK but from the number of days it took to come I'm not so sure but either way it came and I wasn't in any hurry. The seller is rcmodel102, current item number is 271520430270. Check it out mate.

    We've got a dash camera, Tony, me!!! I took 3 x 5 mins worth of hair pin bends going through the Pyrenees last week, my arms ached like crazy, but we got some good runs of film, even though the dashboard features quite prominently in one of them!!!:D

    Mike would like to get one, so let us know how you get on with it.
