I've been downloading all the pictures form my phone. :rolleyes:

So here is the story of me and the vx220 over the last year or so. For those with short attention span look away now. This is actually quite sad isn't it. Anyway, some of you will have seen some of the pics before.

So we kick off with the first vx i ever drove, would have been sometime in july 2004, at baylis in cheltenham, which by coincidence is where my vx is at the moment. the first couple of pics are dodgy as i hadn't worked out how it worked :rolleyes:

It would be a while before i drive another, which was this rab. Nice on the outside, but i think it had had a hard life.

Posted Image

Followed soon after by this one, which really was nice. A members ex car. Shame Vaux wanted £16.5k for it.

Posted Image

Posted Image

Then i met this one, with a broken exaust. My most vivid memory is being fcuking cold fixing it. and then going out in the snow with the roof off :rolleyes: and a pic of adam to go with it :P

Posted Image

Then a brief thought about LYs. This one got badly vandalised the day after the picture was taken :(

Then a bit of time passed while more important things like degrees got in the way. All the time black was growing on me, especially when this one used to stop on its way past on a regular basis (cheers Mate thumbsup ). On its way back from Le Mans in this instance (Adams car)

And then on the 23rd of June it was my turn. I can't really decribe the feeling, especially as it now a memory, but a pure high (i'm smilling just typing this)

Top stuff :) I hate to think how long it'd take me to go through my "My Documents" with all the VX photos from the past 2 and a half years.

i limited myself to my phone, or else it would have needed a lot more than that, and i've only had it 4 months. Edit: actually i've a feeling a couple of camera pics might have slipped in there ;)
