    Hi David, I bet you are over the moon both with this image and as a second time 'Overall' winner, very well done.

    Think we should get some BPN sponsorship on that truck.

    Huge Congratulations.

    I'm sure some nice BIG decals can easily be organised with a magnetic backing, however the 16ft, 24hr neon sign, mounted on the cab might no go down well with neighbours.

    Congratulations once again, David, on winning IOTY. The chance of witnessing this kind of behavior, never mind capturing it at the perfect moment, is very slim and you managed to pull if off! Thank you for all of your contributions to BPN. You and they are very much appreciated!
