Default It's very quiet in here ......

Not been here for a year ..... I can't believe how quiet it is!

Back in the day the topics would fall off the page within 30 minutes if of no appeal ..... I see a post from 22nd October on the front page, that's 6 days!

Has everyone, like me, moved on .... I do miss those days, god it was entertaining

Sadly people sell on and leave forums too, it is sad but it’s a sign of the times I guess.

My word. Not a single post.

zombie site.

A shame. This site used to be frantic. Youd post a thread and it would go crazy with 100 replies in a minute.

I blame those liberal snowflakes that adopt a quasi-vegan lifestyle aspiring to city jobs and wanting to live off-grid in the sticks whilst commuting in a car full of toxically-mined lithium and claiming to be politically ‘Woke’ by blaming society’s evils on the very people that gives them the ability to live such a ‘cleansed’ lifestyle.

Remember most of the original Subaru owners were IT bods, the very people that kept your precious internet working.


Whilst the majority flaps over the likes of Brexit, they’re the ones sat at the back bemused at the ensuing chaos when the proletariat break down at the mere thought that there may or may not be a change in anything to do with the daily mundane life


Too deep? F**k it, it’s a drizzly Sunday

This is my first visit since October 2017 Pedro. I have no intention whatsoever of outing you, but I had to laugh when you got banned from the MX-5 page. I cant even remember why, but they were definitely unhappy. )

It’s all your fault

I wouldn’t post normally but I’m stuck in a Campanile in suburban Bordeaux slowly getting sloshed on Affligem noel and French TV news is stuck on that yellow jacket thing...it’s ‘their’ Brexit. No doubt they’ll f**k up my journey at some point, French protests have a habit of doing that.

Potentially; 9% according to google, but at €9 a litre and a 6:00am start the next morning means calling time early.

All to get to Folkestone before saturday as word on the vine was that they’ll be protesting at the ports today. So a toss up between being stuck/delayed at Calais or battling the plebs on the M25 on their Friday London exodus, chose the latter option.

Ended up chilling in the Tunnel Flexi lounge monitoring live traffic waiting for the accidents to clear on my route (Four in total; two multiple vehicle one lost load all lanes closed no practical alternative routes ). Good call as today the A16 is blocked and closed on the Tunnel turn- offs; https://www.viamichelin.co.uk/web/Tr..._Calais-France
