Thank for welcome, hopefully soon, will be another RRC on the road too!

Finally found an auto electrician who was prepared to come out and have a look. Coming next Thursday and if good I will add his name to forum.

Hi all, new here and have read practical classics for a while. At present I don't have a car (due to being 15) however plan on getting a 1958 ford pop 100e as my first car. Just got to figure out where to store it! :D

Welcolme Jamie. I imagine you've just bought the average age of this forum down considerably! :D

Greetings all.

Thank you for accepting me onto the forum. Classic car boffins are the friendliest bunch.

My name is Jimmy. I am 31 years old and i am a VW lover. Beetles all the way for me.
I have just finished a 72 Jeans edition and a 70 stock 1200. Looking to start a beach buggy in the near future.

I also dabble into the odd other makes too.
I often help my father with his Robin Hood Donington with a 2.0 Pinto engine and i am also restoring an Austin 10 Sherbourne for a good friend.

I may rely on you lot heavily. I hope you don't mind.

Thanks

Good morning all!!

My name is Joe.

I live up in east yorkshire, Not sure if its classed as a classic but i own a 1993 vauxhall calibra, im going through the same nut and bolt as people who own the older cars due to the fact my car wasnt built correctly in the first place, Father in law is a TR7 nut and same again hes having a constant battle with car cancer (rust).

Just on here to expand my knowledge, contacts, and im usually a very active forumer (is that the term?) i attend shows often and love meeting up with like minded enthusiasts. I also bring with me quite an extensive list of contacts for parts and services... im on first name terms with bodyshops!!

Anyway you shall be seeing a bit more of me on here and look forward to meeting up in person.

Joe.
