I know.

But I'm not the Sunday or Summer driver sort of person.

I'd rather drive it everyday than just on the two weeks a year we get when the sun comes out.

Jason.

I think there are a lot of forums at risk of death/stagnation, that thing with Photobucket switching off linked photos unless you forked out for the pro account has certainly been a factor.

Facebook is the reason most forums have been nuked.

The Photobucket one was just another nail in the coffin.

Such a shame, lots of good communities and knowledge disappearing.

Every time I get access to a PC, I jump on here out of habit.

Safe to say it's not very often!

I've got 3.
But my xr2 is off the road.
Needs sills and floor.

The ghia will likely be coming off the road soon too needing inner wings.

So we may have to get something else soon..

Jason.

this place was at its peak in the early 2000's! was such a brilliant forum. As said Facebook etc killed it off.

:(

The advice offered on Facebook I've seen is often crap or wrong. Or crap AND wrong.

I don't pretend to know it all.
But crying out loud..
Some of the stuff I've read on Facebook makes me want to hit someone over the head with a cam shaft!

Jason.
