Erm, if you knew who it was bidding then why didn't you just kill them?
Then they couldn't bid against you.
Unless they now have internet access beyond the pearly gates..

Nice one Jon, good on the bloke.

David, introducing Daisy (because she came from a farm and looks like a cow or a sheepdog!), aka Tiddles. Here she is trying her hand at BMX-ing!

Aww, she so cute.
Looks nothing like a cow though.
Infact I rather wish the cows up the farm were more like Daisy, then my car wouldn't have been so badly mullered!

:oops: I'm incredibly honoured by all this and thanks :D

I've had great satisfaction from seeing both this forum and the FCF get a lot better and seeing both forums enjoying greater use, the FCF particularly :)

Don't forget Jon in all of this. To him, until a week or so ago, I was just a random FCF bloke who e-mailed him a few times with offers of help. He did not know me except from my FCF posts and a few on here when the FCF was down and it was a great leap of faith on his part to allow me to run with what we have done. Thanks Jon :D

I know I'm not a BX owner but I do own a few Citroens and I'm very dedicated to the cause and to the wellbeing of both these two forums. I watch them both like a hawk and back up the databases each evening and dump a weeks-worth of backups to tape every weekend. Our data is in safe hands.

The odd glitch or two we're experiencing is under active investigation and with problems liike that, I'm like a dog with a bone...

Again thanks all and if you don't mind, I'll be sticking around despite being a Xantia fanatic. This is one great forum full of really fantastic people :D

Just kidding! Top work guys.

Tis only right and proper that you stick around Jim, who knows, given enough time (and insults of Xantia's) we might even get you in a BX!!!

Thanks again Jim and Jon, it's brill to able to actually use the forum for my own evil ends again!!! :wink: :lol: :lol:

It would not be difficult Doc, I've always had a great liking for the BX ever since they came out, especially the valver, so it is quite possible one day :)

We only let you in cos you have three thousand million BX's, even then the Xantia nearly swings it :twisted: :lol: :lol:

As my gay mate says "Women are ok, but you cant beat the real thing", the same applies to Cit's.
Substitute "Women" for Xantia's and "the real thing" for BX and you're on the money!

Oooh, the man has taste aswell!!!
Alas mine aint for sale, infact at the moment you wouldn't want it, neither do I TBH.... but valvers are indeed for the win!
Sod the knighthood, I think we may have a saintly character on our hands here!

again, top work fella's.

Oh, and er, stealth van??? K?
