have a word with Santa
If Santa has any sense he will have heated Xantia seats in his sleigh already I expect
Vince, if you really want them, I'm sure we can come to some sort of arrangement between us all. Bank of FCF may be able to help with easy terms repayments; you know, like the catalogues do: £10 pounds down and pay a tenner a week for the next 84 weeks at an interest rate of 260%
You get your leathers and the forum hosting fund goes into very healthy profit!
Seriously though, have a think about it. I was joking about the interest rate. For you we'll do a special rate of 150%....
Ahh, sot hat's Christmas done and dusted. Thank goodness. I'm not the world's greatest fan of Christmas and I'm genuinely glad when Boxing day comes and we can look forward to 364 Christmas-free days
New year is much more significant to me. The start of a new year, new opportunities and a clean slate. Start anew. Out with the old and in with the new!
2009 has been a hell of a year, mostly really good. This time last year I was negotiating the purchase of a certain V6 with a dead gearbox and really going into unknown territory. 12 months later... Things on the V6 knowledge front are just a bit different...
Personally it's been good too. I was dragged from my comfy, obscure corner at work kicking and screaming into a whole new high-tech world on the bleeding edge. Thoroughly enjoyed it, job satisfaction has gone through the roof
So, for 2010 I'm looking for new territory to explore and want to get my hands on an AL4 autobox now. Anybody have one.
It's been a good year for the forums too. The FCF in particular has gone from strength to strength and despite a few teething troubles, the new server is working well and has considerably speeded things up. I'll be looking at upgrading to phpBB3 in the new year.
I'm pleased the weather has warmed up. It's been purgatory this past week as I've been stuck in the house and unable to play spanners or continue breaking the scrap V6
As soon as Christmas obligations are out of the way, I'll be out there. I NEED some spanner therapy pretty urgently.
I'm most impressed at how the V6 has behaved in this bad weater. Excellently
Still, my enforced trapping indoors has not been without profit. I need to overhaul my websites and in particular get www.xantiav6.co.uk
up and running. To this end I've been teaching myself how to do web design properly and getting to grips with the HTML language and using cascading style sheets.
This afternoon I'm going for a little spin in my Activa. It's been buried under snow for the past week
