Been a long time, but hello

Hi guys, not sure who is still on here from way back. I have seen a few familiar names in posts so good to see some people have kept hold of their coupes. Just thought it was about time I popped back and had a gander at how the club had progressed from the days when I was heavily involved. Got to sa...

Re: Coup sold... Ascona now...

Ascona's are very coolish, I had a metallic brown one a few years ago, mint condition with genuine 6k miles on clock. Traded it for 2 Opel Kadett B Coupe's and regretted it. Err, not to wish the stress of a big project, but you know that a Calibra Turbo lump would fit in that and Opel tend to have t...

Re: Monster hunter in a accident

That could have been condensed in to one post. Taking mods off your car if you are claiming against your own insurance (shut it Martin, I know he is not) is not wise. Assuming you declare them, then they can reduce your pay out for the stuff missing that you saiud the car was fitted with... another ...

Re: THINGS ROVER DIDNT DO

Nice to see people grasp the idea of the meaning 'what ONE modification...' Roof glass sliding in to the roof would be tricky, either raise the roof line or lose even more room in the back of what is an already cramped rear. I think Rover did a pretty good job, only thing I ever really wanted in my ...

Re: Snow!!

Well to start.... do they not get snow in London!! No, not normally. London manages to avoid the vast majority of snow each year, but his year we had the worst snow in 18 years. Going by the state of the roads down my neck of the woods, London made a wise decision about the buses. They tried to get ...

Re: Snow!!

Left home at 8.20, got down to Brighton and had to turn back due to jack knifed lorries. Eventually got out again at midday and bliss in the evening as the roads were so quiet at 5pm with everyone either not going to work or going home early. No more snow this evening like they predicted, but -2 so ...

Re: Need your votes guys

I decided I'll buy the £160 pot of wax if I win. It's something I'd never justify otherwise.

Cheers for the votes and praise, keep it coming :D

Re: Hard day at work today

It's quite pleasant here at the moment. The wind got up last night and rained, but it's about 9 degrees and a nice breeze blowing through the open windows. The grass is nice and green and the daffs and tulips are starting to grow and the spring bulbs are beginning to flower so should start getting s...

Re: Petrol price

Wish it was still well over a pound, I was raking in the tesco club card points a while back. Mind you, I wouldn't be saying that if it were not for the fuel card.
