Morning All !
As some of you know and some of you dont, I have been trying to sell my car. Well yesterday, Anna from Bristol bought it and she is now the new (hopefully happy) owner of a Pearl Black MKII 172 ! It was a very very very weird feeling seeing the car being driven away by someone else, I almost called the cops in the confusion ! I got a good price for it and she seemed like the sort of person who would look after the car so everything seems to have worked out well, I do miss the car tho.
Anyway, the reason for this note is to sort of say goodbye but also NOT to say goodbye if you know what I mean (of course you dont, I get that alot !). I have been on these boards since March last year and I have been a member since we went to York last year. I was on here before I bought the car and there were loads of people on here who gave me loads of good advice and where to get the best deal so for that I thank you all, you know who you are.
I would like to mention a few people (in no particular order) and I really hope that I do not miss anyone out, if I do then please do not dedicate your life to hunting me down, please, it was an honest mistake.
ChavyBoy - cheers mate for ALL the help you have given me with the stupid little queries that I have posted ESPECIALLY the oil change and meeting me before York, you are a diamond geezer ! I still say the PS2 is better than the Xbox !
telford_mike (and Val) - One of the first people I actually spoke to properly on the boards and then found out that you work for EDS too ! Had a great laugh the night before the Brands Hatch meet and also at York ! Met Val at the Brands Hatch meet too, great people and always willing to help.
Matt-Leics - Top bloke ! Again met you at York ! The again at the Brands Hatch meet and had a great laugh !

.........and last and DEFINITELY least ! Captain Slarty - never had anything nice to say, still dont know why to this day and to be honest, I dont care !
Well that is it, I am sure I have missed someone out and so I am sorry ! It is goodbye to Clio ownership (at the moment). I pick up my new V reg Ferrari Red Ka this evening ! I know, I know it is a Ford but it is cheap to run and that is all I need right now and I got a good deal.
The two meets that I have been to have been fantastic ! There are some great genuine people on here and this is turning into a fantastic club !
I will still be around the boards now and again but I wanted to say thanks to everyone I have met on here, its been emotional as someone once said !
Take it easy yall !
Daipac a.k.a. THAT RANDOM WELSH BLOKE !
PS This has to be the biggest post I have ever written, hope you got to the end ok !
