The Fastlane is.....17 years old

Post by PTRACER » 4 months ago

Yeah, it's crazy to say that. I started this forum with Jesper on the evening of 22 Nov 2003. I think it's my own stubbornness which refuses to let it die...and the fact you lot keep bloody coming back!

17 years already. I remember the early days with @Warren posting awesome Speedvision clips that were gold to me back then as there was no YouTube.

Thanks to @PTRACER for keeping it going still through his many transitions in life, he always kept it up, this site I mean.

If it means anything in a post I wrote about reaching 30,000 posts recently I mentioned you in my list of main reasons why I joined TFL 15 years ago.... and also the hours and days downloading stuff on dial up internet which was all we got in Aus back then. I used to live for those great (high quality) clips you would endlessly upload and was very grateful for them in the pre youtube days.
viewtopic.php?p=393248#p393248.

Do you still have your Mustang Cobra? I remember being very admiring of that and the mods you carried out on it..

Funnily enough I remember thinking of you only fairly recently when I watched the Ford v Ferrari movie on TV here. I seem to recall watching something similar you uploaded years ago.

Anyway, good to see you are still alive and hopefully along with your family are in good health. Stay safe in the current Covid era, and hopefully see you around a bit more.

On the subject of those I miss from days gone others I miss from those early days are Warren Seppi and Groubite. Hopefully they are still around and in good health. Did I imagine it or did Warren post something out of the blue recently?

Edit: Just noticed next to your avatar you still appear to have the Mustang. :thumbsup: (unless it is out of date info.)
