10 years in
« on: 04 September 2019, 21:02:06 »

Just been pootling around on here and realised(after looking at my poor stats) that I have been a member on here for just over 10 years, but have only managed 354 (sorry 355 now) posts.

I think I have had four omegas in that time, two TD estates and two petrol saloons.
Remembering back we used to get together occasionally and play Mario kart (well mainly TB and Jimbob).

Anyway its a great forum and has helped me out no end of times with all the knowledge within, I shall have to try and make an effort and contribute more.
I know its the wrong section ,but is anyone up for a NW meet??

If so lets start a thread in the right bit , before we get banned!!!

Don't tell Jon (omegod), he'll come along and try to get you all to sell him your omegas for scrap.  :o

Nice to hear from you again.

It is amazing how time flies. I have just had a look and its 13 years for me. I have had a lot of help from both the forum and members over the years.

I joined up on 9th March 2008 when I stumbled across OOF while searching for clues as to why my speedo had stopped working and I had the TC and ABS lights on all the time.  My local garage were flummoxed, but OOF had all the answers!  :y

Thanks to OOF and the membership I kept my Omega for 11 years!  :y

We've done a few in the past, At Chester Services, and at a Member owned cafe in Holywell.
Think of a location, that will allow a car meet, and chuck it in the meetings section and see what happens.

Always thought about doing a camping meet at Chester Lakes, but facilities are a bit sparce.

Jeezo. July 2006 for me after a friendly nod from Mr Fuse, after a 'mass banning' from another site.  :y :y
The daft thing is I haven't owned an Omega for 10 years, but I still frequent this place.......Whats wrong with me??  ::) :-X
I don't even frequent the site for my current ride any more as it got real quiet about 3 years ago. :-[ :-[
Well done to Jamie, and all you wierdo's that keep this place going so well. :P :y :-*

9 years (13 June 2010) for me .. don't know where the time goes! Must admit, having not owned an Omega for several years, and having grown tired of the constant politichat and the attitudes of a few, I very nearly pressed the big red delete button last week..

..then I asked a question about oil, and figured I'd stay around ;D Plus there's a few folks I can only communicate with here (they're ideologically opposed to Facebook/LinkedIn/etc and I don't have their mobile numbers ;D)..
