Iíve sold vehicles since 2009, and by some luck Iíve sold 13 cars in the past 7 weeks.
It dawned on me today, whilst driving TBE into the Smoke, I bought it off you 10 years ago yesterday. It was my 40th birthday present to myself.

Where did that time go :o

How did the lifetime warranty hold up for you?  ;D

Iím sure weíre very much overdue an Oxford meet!

Cutteslowe Park was a nice location :)

Tony's Brackley meet was also good.  :y

Oxford area is good for me. Sadly missed the last Brackley one.  Very much up for a socially distant discrete meet up as soon as it can be arranged.  A group of Omegas is never going to be a mass gathering is it?

There's an unnecessary tone there... Even if most of the cars now aren't Omegas, the people are the same :y

Which is almost as important as the cars.

Meets are social events.


The cars are unimportant, as we all know what they look like. And what they need done to them....

But some cars do stand out in the crowd ... no matter what the car club/forum.  :y

I think the comment was more to do with the fact that you can't have BIG gatherings right now due to Covid 19 regulation
hence the part about .....
socially distant discrete meet up

other than the Brackley meet or Billing , when do you see more than one omega in a day , unless you own more than one yourself  ;D

The four door Ferrari clone drew alot of attention, but was somewhat eclipsed by the LS1 and supercharger powered Omega Estate 8)

There was even a very nice early Micra at the last Brackers meet 8)

Sorry, no tone intended, I have two Omegas, at opposite ends of the condition spectrum, and would always welcome experienced constructive criticism of either :) I agree that it dosn't matter what you turn up in, there will always be something interesting to talk about.

Cant remember the last time I turned up to an Omega meet in an Omega ;D. Probably one of the Oxford meets from years ago.  Even in the early days of OOF, I was often captured on camera turning up to OOF meets in a Rover ;D

Funny you should mention the lifetime warranty.  Seeing as it broke yesterday ::)
