Have I been gone long enough to qualify for a long time no see thread?

Just thought I'd pop by and see if any of the old faces were still here? It appears EVO has died a death? It's a shame was a banging forum when I joined, 3 or 4 pages of new posts a day sometimes.

 

Anyway how are you all. Sidrick and Shawdreamer still doing the rounds? I miss the educated banter and philosophising ;-)

Oh you in Yankee land? Get a charger ;-)

 

Yea it killed me but the finance and fuel cost to run the c1 a month came to the same as just the fuel in the fiesta. Pluss it's more reliable and cheap to tax as well. Got to grow up a bit. Got another 2 years of paying it then look g at getting a diesel bimmer.

 

Congrats on the wedding dude, that mean youv grown up like me then? ;-)

I love the chargers but they're really, really big. They're a lot more expensive than the Mustang as well. We'll be doing a lot of miles and the missus just bought a new Fiesta so I might just end up with a 10 year old big engined BMW to pile the miles on for our road trips.

 

Yeah, I think that's the reason a lot of folk leave this site. They grow up in many ways (whether it's career, relationship, house, etc), and one way is to stop flinging money at old Escorts. I'm not saying anyone who does this is wrong, but as folk get older this tends to be one thing they leave behind. Just my opinion, anyway.

There's a reason why there called boy racers and not man racers lol

Majority can't finance nodding cars and running a house etc. Obviously a lucky few can but I'd rather have holidays etc

I do miss the scene when I was more into it we had some cracking laughs and made some good friends but people have to move on, it's a shame this place hasn't moved on with the times and stayed alive.

I think I moved on a little from here. In some respects, grew up..... that means no disrespect to people on here. Id love to move to the States.... its a life long dream of mine. But in May last year I bought my first house so im tied into that for now.

 

For now i'll just have to put up with driving American cars over in blighty

Hello mate! I agree with you on the site issues! Simple things like ease of uploading photos,images and video's alike! Seems you have to go through 4 websites just to get a picture uploaded you know!? Plus i reckon the mark 5 6 escort is just not old or desirable enough yet! Maybe another ten years or so,but hey thats just my personal opinion! What do i know huh?

It only takes one website to upload pictures, and thats photo bucket. Its actually quite easy to use, and you dont have to hit it with a hammer to get it to work. ;)
