Andrew.


Still able to access and upload photos, but it means anytime i am on a forum or page where someone is posting a picture from Photobucket all i get is a crappy looking tacho thing with update your hosting p500 thingy and the photo is not visible.
i am getting started to remove photos and shutdown my photobucket since it doesn't work :(
Plans have changed to just make a good fun Track Car :)

You may have already seen this Will, but if not it's worth a look, an excellent alternative to Photobucket -

Kudos to Paul G for finding it.

Paul, I didn't actually find the postimage, I nicked the idea off another forum where people had suggested it.

You're still the one who brought it here Paul, you are the discoverer, the founder, the adventurer, the explorer, the man!

I don't think me as Pope or Prime Minister would be a very good idea. Adventurer - well I'm going to Majorca for a week in September, first holiday for 14 years. (Mind you I have been all round the world in my younger days). Founder is another word for sinking and I'm no saint believe me!

Now we have mastered postimage I will soon start a thread about my Capri's, including my newly bought 2.0S which I've kept quietish about so far!

Oh well, off to get my Robin Hood kit car MOT'd this afternoon, it's got to be sold as has the Rover Sd1 Vitesse and the Fiesta as I need more Capri room now!

Where have you been?
Travelling can be fun so long as its you deciding where to go, before i was 10 i had ended up circumnavigating the globe at least twice i reckon, at least if you clock all the miles up in total i reckon. All thanks to the old folks who couldn't decide where the f#*k they wanted to live! lol
Been to Australia (was nearly born there infact) by way of Perth, stopped off in Bali on the way there, then the states in the very early 90's, Miami, San Fran, then back and fourth to Spain several times for the majority of my childhood, been through France a few times, then back to the states to meet my wife when i was in my late teens and been living here since '05.
Now the most i manage is to Southampton and back these days lol.

Looking forward to seeing this new Capri of yours.

(sorry, off topic)

Paul G, seeing your mention of a Robin Hood, did you used to be on the Haynes and or Locost forum by any chance ?

No, I did sign up for the RHOCAR one when I was in the Robin Hood owner's club, mainly for technical info when I built the car, but I never actually posted on it. Capri Power and this forum are the only forums regarding anything I've ever been active on.

Car passed it's MOT then broke down on the way home with a blocked fuel pick up pipe due to cruddy stale petrol. All cleaned out and fixed now. I will post some pics of it tomorrow.

It's a kind of magic :)
