Members Classic Cars

Post pictures and stories about your cars both present and past. Also post up "blogs" on your restoration projects - the more pictures the better! Note: blog-type threads often get few replies, but are often read by many members, and provide interest and motivation to other enthusiasts so don't be disappointed if you don't get many replies.

Members Classic Cars

#1 Post by bnicho » Wed Jan 19, 2011 10:30 pm

Welcome to the Members Cars section.

The admins have decided we need a new sction specifically for your cars and projects.

Feel free to blog regularly about your cars, or just put up a few photos for all of us to see.

We will not define what a classic car is, we will leave it up to you to decide if your own car is worthy.

Please respect each other's choice of project, no "This is not a classic!" comments.

Keep non-car related chat out of this section. For example, no caravan projects or hourse renovations.

Enjoy!

Cheers,
Brett.

also, it would be helpful if you could give your thread a readable title eg:

'1970 MG Midget light resto'

rather than :

'my new project'

cheers :)

Done! Thanks for that, your thread is exactly the kind of thing we want, and personally that's exactly the kind of car I want to read about, so many thanks for that and keep up the good work. Remember - just because you don't get many replies doesn't mean that we're not all avidly reading it and following your progress, so keep posting!

Cheers :D
Some people are like Slinkies - they serve no useful purpose, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them downstairs.

Very good point - there was a Imp resto on the old PC forum which had very few replies - after a while the writer (I can't remember who) asked if anyone was actually interested in it - I definately was - but I couldn't really see the point of putting a reply to everything he wrote - unless of course it was a question he'd asked.

It's great to get a few words of encouragement now and again though :-) I know you guys are reading it, we're all car nuts after all!

The project had not moved a lot in the past year, until a few weeks ago, a new aquaintance who used to be involved with a body shop came to have a look at it. His enthusiasm combined with his expertise have given me the boost I needed to get on with it. I primed the first of the panels last night. I think I'll have to do one of them again, but I'm learning and hopefully the finished product will be better for it!

Yes that is true, but if anyone is concerned as to if there efforts are being read, just look at the views. My simple 'bloggy' has over 80 'views' recorded :D
