20 years on the forum

PostPost by: cliveyboy » Mon Sep 25, 2023 9:47 am

Just realised it was the 20 year anniversary since I joined this forum (22 Sept 2003)
I believe Rohan joined the exact same day.

20 years for me this time next year and I'm still no further on with the car :roll: Mind you a lot has happened for me personally over that time and I've managed to hang on to it which is something.

I guess I'm the newbie... 20th anniversary hits on Oct 20th (joined on 20 Oct 2003).

Life is more fun behind the wheel of a Lotus!

It seems I am a latecomer to the forum. Sat Apr 19, 2008 11:59 pm

However I have owned the same Elan S3 Coupe since about the middle of 1969

My profile shows I joined 11 September 2003, however.....

I have feeling the subject has been discussed here previously because as I understand it, there was change or re-jig of the forum software and the original join dates got lost.

I am 100% certain I was a member of this forum well before 2003


EDIT: Just checked and see that I was posting in 2000

I am a recent joiner to the forum. Just 1 year. But wanted to thank all you long term members who have contributed so much time and care to building an amazing resource that has been invaluable and a constant source of entertainment and helpful advice as I tackle new problems on my old car.
