There is also the likelyhood that many of our northern hemispehere friends have not awaken from their winter hibernation while being snowed in. The South Africans and Australians are fortunate not having to deal with snow and can enjoy their cars year round.

Welcome Tikiman. Hope you enjoy the forum. It seems that the RHD owners do dominate here. Tell us about your car(s).

Don't forget the Dutch, the lone Fin, the lone Hong Kongian, and vy ar zair no Germans??  Because we do crap German accents on the rare occasion and they also have some really good sites of their own.

Can I ask though Tikiman, how does Michel and Brian seem to know so much about you after you posted so little?  That's just freaky.  Did I miss something???

Oscar, BC is spying on us. He has all our cyber cables tapped! He probably knows more about us than our own mothers!!
