Happy New Year!  Do not forget to get your 2009 Calendar from the download column to the left.

Getting the new year off to a flying start, please welcome Zulkifli Dato' Omar and Y 1041 to Ys on Parade, and adds yet another new country to the world-wide fellowship of Ys with Malaysia!  Y 1041 also makes up another matched pair with Y 1040

A new picture of YB 1551, the last YB chassis, has been added to the Collectibles page.

If you have been enjoying the Reprinted Articles series, a new series begins this month.  Titled as SNIPPETS, this covers short items such as pictures of articles slightly off the mainstream of full-blown Reprinted Articles.  This will be added to on an "as and when" basis as material becomes available and can be accessed at any time from the Reprints and Collectibles item on the main navigation panel.  Fans ofReprinted Articles though need not worry, I am only currently about half way through my library stock of items, so release of Reprinted Articles will continue on a bi-monthly basis for the foreseeable future!

The first Reprinted Article of 2009 continues with the second of two articles from Safety Fast, June 1997, with an article by David Hague on 'Veneering or "Ironing away" with a smoothing Dash'.

A new Hint and Tip has been added for setting the correct depth gap when installing new seat bolts, (or even reinstalling old ones).

A new Picture of the Month has also been added.

Do not forget to send in details of Y Type Events for the 2009 Events calendar too.
