Hi Guys

First time on here for a few years so thought I'd post as some of you don't do other platforms.

Just had a read on a few projects and nice to see some new and old faces, stuy, abo, nice to see you guys back.

Greg, nice to see nothing changed with the LX🤣,

Well the saabalier is still tucked up after 3 years and shes still looking fine, took a once over it last week and needs a few machanical things doing for a mot but at the moment i've no desire to do anything to it, still lost the mojo 😪

Like a few of you i've been busy with divorce, luckerly it was a mutal thing so all good, been busy with a new house, life and women for the last couple of years, amazing how divorce makes you look at things differently 🤣.

Hope you all have been keeping safe during this difficult 12 months and maybe catch up 1 day 👍

I can speak to the mojo thing; After 2016 and the yellow cav still needing so many things (and shredding the back tyres, not in a good way), I couldn't look at the thing. It took selling Orwin to motivate me to save the others as I missed driving a MK2, as being in one has been a feature of, pretty much my whole life. Returning to MK2's as a project, even just 7 years after the Angouleme trip (the last time I finished a mk2 build), the scene is so different.

These cars are now much rarer, appreciating and harder to find bits for as they head to 40. That challenge to overcome and the fact that no-one on the street has any idea what these cars are now has fuelled my own desire to get on with things again. I'm bored of looking at silver, red white and blue jelly moulds on the roads. Well it's probably that, and avoiding my day job, covid and a rusty fire engine. But I'll say this - it will come back when it's ready. I'm glad you kept the old bus @Richie

As for other returners here, I come here because it's the antithesis of FB, it's not throwing everything at you demanding you click. Good to see you back mate! Any chance of a couple of pics?

1988 Vauxhall Cavalier mk2 LX 1.6 red (not so basket case rebuild)

1988 Vauxhall Cavalier mk2 LX 1.6 met blue (why, why indeed?)
