Smile New to forum love every bit of it

THANKS TO EVERYONE who makes this site pssible!!!!

I have been reading this forum for about 4 weeks now and I finally decided to regester. After dinner insted of watching tv I read the posts until my eyes fall out, at about 12.30am (thats the time mow).
I WANT TO KNOW EVERYTHING about th new for and this is a great way to find out.
Now I am regesterd I can make responsible and meaningfull imputs into these sometimes heated discussions.

I am 18
just about to finish school (one exam left)
I live in sydney
have my green p's (NSW 3rd stage)
I was given a stock 98 EL falcon from old man (before I got my p's )...
As soon as I got my p's I got a job delivering pizzas for domino's all the money went into a kenwood cd player and keeping the tank full of fuel and new tires stc.
All my mates have (FULLY SICK BRO) rice burners eg lancers, gti, hondas.......but the Falcon wins the women because of the room and outperforms them in straight lines.

My old man drives Au3 forte wagon with 16in rims formerly a current V8 AU3 fairlane but $$$ troubles forced sale (that was a beast)


I would love to know if there are other young people on this forum.

anyway thats my 2 cents
****LETS TAKE THE BLUE OVAL BACK TO its former position.****

Welcome to the boards mate. I too work at domino's here in the west. If you know anything about the make comp, our stores gonna be competing this saturday. And if we win, we get a free trip to qld, to compete in the nationals. Fingers crossed.

I know what you mean about reading till your eyes pop out. I did the same when i stumbled across this board. There is such great information to be read.

Can't believe you got given an EL. Lucky son of a b%^$h !!!!

Enjoy mate...

Welcome EL_GLI, 18 eh? When I was 18 the Vietnam War was just starting to get interesting, no pc's, no Internet, no terrorists. There is an old Chinese saying that goes "May you live in interesting times". I think this is now.

Anyway, as Janis Joplin said, "Get it while you can"

Welcome to the Forums!

I am also 18, and in Syndey on my green P's. All I can say is you are lucky you only found this place when you only have one exam left! I found it before my exams, and I think you know where this story ends up. Too much time spent on the net 'Studying'.

I drive an EFII Fairmont Ghia that ive had since the week before I went for my P's. Everychance I got, I was driving it! Still the same story!

Anyway....Welcome once again, and you wont be able to stay away!

Hey TopGhia

That old Chinese saying "May you live in interesting times" is actually a curse used by the Chinese on their enemies in ancient times! I have been told the proper translation for "interesting times" meaning chaos and havok.

There's no substitute for cubic inches!
