Well it seems that 10 years has crept up and snook past me before I realised it, Hard to believe I've owned the plastic shitbox for 10 years now :lol: It's the longest I have owned a car for. Over that time, it's been quite an experience. Learning the car, experiencing that intoxicating acceleration, experiencing the arse biting the seat when the back end steps out in the wet, bodywork, Peaks meets, the modding bug, the national and the forum etc. There has been some real highs whilst owning the car; From Fab's cock juice, to Joes spunk shots (not to mention Joe fisting Gill's box and then getting his hand stuck :lol: ), from getting pissed and behaving badly at the National to the VX220 thesaurus (for those who aren't familiar with it, check this link out - http://www.vx220.org...r-vx220-owners/  ) and from winning the Intercooler debate :D to Techies pea puke

 

I don't drive the car as much as I did. But I don't envisage selling it. I'm proud to have been a part of this forum over the years. Met some great people and had many good times. I know I don't come on the forum as much now, but it does seem a shame that when I do come on here, it seems fairly quiet. And WTF happened for Joe to become a mod????

Had pea rations before and after the birthday but didn't want to risk it on the actual day. :lol:

I can confirm, hangovers are definitely getting worse with age and seem to be induced by increasingly smaller amounts of alcohol. :angry2:

Who is going to first to make the first electric VX220?
The Chasis was good enough for Tesla and the battery’s and motors are going to keep getting better and cheaper now EV vehicles are on the march.
