He, of course, bounced back later as though nothing had happened. I remember at the time he went missing that AlanS posted some very positive things about him.
I saved Alan's post at the time but am unable to find it at present as I am still away from my home PC. If it turns up and Anders is still 'missing' then I will repost AlanS's comments to perhaps satisfy in absentia those members of the Anders fan club who, along with me, miss his input.
Do you think if we slag him (Anders) off he might return then? I just wondered if some sort of reverse psychology might work. No? I'll get me coat :lol:

I think I am ;)
No BX now, and DS is sold, awaiting collection. My everyday hack is a ZX turbodiesel, but UHN 113X is still there and will always stay - it's been as far as Italy now, and the 25000 miles when we got it is now 50004 as of today.
The spotty jacket in the pic has now gone.
Good to see some familiar faces on here - Hi Jonathan - have you still got the Dyane 4?

Nice to hear from you Mike! Shame that the D is moving on, but I guess it has to be a sensible move...

The Dyane 4 went to a new owner a bit ago, we only have the two Dyane's now, the bronze roller painted early 70s job, and the four light. As you can see, I have returned to the BX! I understand my old one's still going strong with Rob?

Hi Jonathan
Yes - Rob's BX is alive and well - Dalvinder uses it for work most days. They are a great car, but seem to have very suddenly disappeared off the roads a year or two ago now!

Dyanes are about the most practical A-Series you can get.

I don't know but I was too dim to understand it, could you relay that to him for me? :D

Ps, where's Pilsy? Haven't heard much from him since he moved, the plastic scouse ne'r-do-well that he is!

You've met his missus right?
If he's got any sense he'll be making puppies!

I shall try to contact him Billy and see what current affairs are due. His resistance may be too high, so I shall call the copper if his capacity is futile...

Pilsy's missus is lovely and no mistaking.

Bandit, maybe he's 'volted' the fence at ohm and doesn't give two flux about us now?
