1800 ti owner from Ireland

Post by Tuborgman » Wed May 09, 2018 7:51 pm

Hi all.. Have been lurking for awhile since I started looking at buying my 89 Scimitar 1800Ti. Said it was about time to join and say hello.
Car was owned by someone who frequented this forum. The Scimitar has been lying up since 2011 so have been busy recommissioning everything although I got it started and running over the weekend :)

Never try and argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level, then beat you based on experience.

I only met Neil once but I found him a very nice chap indeed.

More importantly - I’m glad to see you managed to get past the Captcha anti-spam measure during the signup! :D

Haha... I did indeed. Unfortunately I do most of my Interneting on my phone when I'm commuting etc and my phone doesn't get on with the forum. Once I got a laptop to sign in with there was no problem at all.. Thanks for accepting me :)
