Hi y'all

Jim here. It's been a while to say the least, don't think I've posted for over 3 years. I hope everyone, old and new, is doing well and that some of the old timers are still around and recognise me laugh And I hope everyone is well during these strange times with covid and lockdown and not sunning themselves in Bournemouth!

Anyway, I have a reason for the post, but will pop that in the right place, this is just to say hi bye

Greetings bye
Seeing you say hello reminds me that I'm now over 10 years without a coop. shocked Don't post much nowadays but am usually lurking nearby.


Up yours Photobucket.

Hi all. Nice to see some familiar faces around still. It's like finding your old trainers and easing them back on and getting that warm comfy feeling smile

Hi Neil,

I do take a look at the place every now and again and was hoping to be attending elements of the 25th anniversary meeting, though there were no thoughts in my mind of any man-love smile

Hey mrc, how are you?

I've gone a bit sensible, I sold my own car about 4 or 5 years ago and since have leased. I realised I was only driving to and from work and wa spending more on tax and maintenance than was necessary. So I sold up and went leased.

Currently I have a Leon Cupra which is a bit of fun, quick enough to break the speed limit and with no hassle driving, but does hold the road very well for a small hatchback.

It does to go back after September and due to covid I'm now no.longer commuting, so time for another change and I'm thinking cheap convertible at the moment. Low cost but a bit different, as I'll only be doing 1 or 2k Miles a year, no need for much more!

What are you in these days?
