10 Years of the Forum.

Can't see this has been mentioned yet, but I do have a good memory for useless facts.  Admin (Matt) who was about twelve or something  at the time, registered today in 2006!

Happy 10th Birthday guys!
Michael

We should all make our final posts and never return.
Tim

I'm sure there was a massive glitch and we had to re-register that December.
I remember first posting on here not long after I'd bought my Alfa in Sept 2006, having been absent from the Autocar forum from the end of that April.

Where did that time go? Can't believe it's been 10 year since this forum started.
Blarno

I remember it like it was 10 years ago.
BeN

We should have a party...

Can't believe how fast time flies though. A full decade.

10 years of you lot

Happy anniversary all.

But are you necessarily any wiser?

It is essential that you get wiser and a bit richer as you get older. Something has to make up for all the other shit.

10 years ago, I had no kids, wasn't married and was just about to embark on a mortgage.

I'd rather get dafter and richer, then I wouldn't recognise all the mistakes that others are about to make! They don't want to listen to the wisdom of age either which just adds to the frustration!

Absolutely.  Not all of it good, but there you go.

I think there have been some excellent Forum meets and events over the past 10 years, with several Prescott weekenders springing to mind and a couple of memorable trackdays too.  Plus some terrific drives, and (for me) even a Christmas dinner as the guest of one of our number.

Roll on the next 10 years.  I wonder which of our current cars will still be in our ownership then?  A handful have been ever-present during the previous 10...

10 years!!!!! (to quote Jeremy Piven in Gross Pointe Blank)

This means I have been in Canada for over 10 yrs now, where does the time go???
Nelson

got to admit...I like this little place. Ill heath and regular hospital visits this year has prevented me from posting as regularly as I'd like but I browse daily and post when I can

May it long continue and I wish you all good health and to new friends made, thanks

Hope you received my Christmas Card, Ian

Mine has, I wonder too - can't help thinking I'm missing out on the variety of inexpensive barges that take my fancy, especially as my car does less than 7kpa now. Found myself immersed in E38's the other week
Stuntman

I dunno Chris, I think after a while it's actually quite comforting to have had a car for a proper chunk of time.  Especially if you still enjoy driving it and looking after it.  If/when my silver one goes, I will almost certainly miss it.  Unless it throws me a catastrophically large bill...

I don't have you down as a barge man, somehow.  But variety is indeed the spice of life.

I know, that's why I was thinking something completely different - the other side of me thinks Cactus, but then I already have an interesting small car.

Ditto.
Big Blue

10 years ago I had a different wife, only three kids and far more debt and less savings. I also had more body fat, no facial hair and a senior management role as opposed to three trips to the gym per week, not-so-trendy-anymore stubble and a daily rate with no management responsibility.

Choices.
