I'm back

Post by jag1954 » Fri Apr 12, 2019 6:52 am

Hello everyone. I'm back with a new username. It was jj2728, so I used my alternate email account to set up a new username. I've had some serious health issues related to my cancer and that prevented me from posting. it's good to be here once again. I've sold roughly half of my collection and kept those cars that have real meaning for me. Since I've been back online I've been amazed at the plethora of cars that have hit the market. I'm going to be more discerning in my purchases from now on and I'm looking forward to sharing my thoughts and opinions with all of you. All the best and happy collecting!

Welcome back John

British roads have history. Some were built by the Romans. British road investment being what it is, they have only been re-surfaced a few times since.

Great to have you back John. Hard to believe it was Feb 2016 when you last showed us your recent acquisitions. Even though you have a new username, here's your old thread if you want to pick up where you left off.

Welcome back! I can only guess you have been through a lot, but always remember that the darkest part of the night is just before dawn.
