Loved Ovaltine's abrasive posts, always keen to read the latest post from him. Political correctness has kicked in again. The long winter nights are coming with just the TV for entertainment and no Ovaltine night cap.

The Rattletrap saga great too probably more for me as I have such memories of Rattletrap (the car) from my younger days. Shame theyve been kicked off the forum.

Where's VWStan, 48REME and some of the others gone:?

I'm still around (VWStan) but since selling the '58 Standard last year, I've gone back to my previous (six-o-one) login!

I'm back!

Sorry boss, was away in camper with the family! managed to get to Chateaux'd'Oex to check out the show, really nice to see some different cars and virtually no uk cars/people present!

Will try to sort a few photo's in the next few days, I don't usually post much, but it never stops me from looking in. (note to self: become more interesting and be able to post more often!)

I hope to be back onto my PGSG55 bus project soon, then the ambulance, Ghia gone today:unsure: a new life further up the country awaits.

66 DD caries on with daily driver duties at present. getting a bit bored with the look of it now so may fit the cross plies that are waiting for my 55 and do away with the Hurst bar. Would also be intersted in a trade for a split window beetle with cash either way(either way, ha ha).

Carry on!

I distinctly remember Rattletrap being banned for over posting and everyone here jumping on him, thanking the administrator for kicking him off.:?

Jon posted in defense of Rattletrap at the time.

Rob could confirm this but i don't think he was actually banned.

His thread was locked and he was instructed not to post anymore R***le***p shite.

When he continued, the word R***le***p was automatically replaced with another phrase.

This is why the administrator was thanked.

If you miss him so much,try his Facebook page.

Ovaltine,however posted a remark tieing all vintage vw enthusiasts with nazism.

He was banned for this.Still think it's a shame, he's not still here?
