We had a long running poll (of sorts) on the old forum and I think we calculated the average age to be around the 30/31 mark..

Good to see a new one started though good on ya Ash :hi:

PS love the transformers centre caps :ok:

Yeah, we did - I even did a spreadsheet and everything. I reckon the average averages out at around 30-ish, but oldies like me are bumping it up.

Oh and a 2.4L Accord estate is quicker than a 1.0L Corsa's :diablo:

Well, I'm 30, I started off with Fords - MK1 XR2's, MK2 Escorts, MK3 Escorts Etc. Then I bought a K reg MK3 Cavalier SRi 130 as an insurance write off, I fixed it and got carried away, 13k later it was featured in Max Power and got me a part as an extra driving it in the Ali G movie! :pilot:
Sold that for a ridiculous amount of cash when a boy racer fell in love with it and bought myself a Skyline :cool: It was a 2.5 Turbo Nice motor!

Sold that, had kids and wanted something fun, retro and above all.................. cheap, so I bought myself a Scirocco GT and LOVING IT! :good:

There was other cars a failed to mention but not many VW's TBH, the wife has always been into them though and had every Golf GTi apart from MK5.
