    OFAH - great choice....

    Given your old "boy racer" tenancies (and assuming your rough age) - did you have a Nova or XR2???

    I was never a boy racer as such as my 1.3 Escort Popular Plus (the plus was the added rear windscreen wiper) then on to a Rover 216 Si (0-60 in just under 9 seconds so not too shabby)

      Nice to learn more about you, jonj...

      I had to look up OFAH - I assume you mean the BBC sitcom Only Fools and Horses and not the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters (our Canadian friends may use OFAH for that).

      You've done pretty well acquiring as many Cars as you have in a short period of time... Maybe you can help your store get in good selection of Cars - some stores need all the help they can get - an inside connection who knows the product line can't hurt.

      Thanks again for your contributions to PCD.

        Nice to know more about you jonj! I like your reason for collecting! It's exciting when you are in the toy aisle & you both spot that new car for the first time. These bonding times are very precious!
