Did read the 'Teabag thread' but didn't really get what is was all about, perhaps a great loss?

Hi my name is Mårten (pronounced Morten, if thats easier?) and live darrn sarrf Sweden.
Would I let you know my full name and adress?
Sadly those days are gone, if they ever excisted that you wouldnt risk theft or robbery of your cars and other stuff if thats open to anyone.
Probably more so in UK than here.

More arguments about recreations of red and white cars? Please no!
Prefer a debate about whether Clive Trickey did have a South African drivers seat in KTR223E or was it homemade?!!

Was born curious, and this made it worse:
'but there comes a point where a line is crossed and people may be driven away from the forum, which is a greater loss to all than the 'point scoring' justifies. There is a specific case in mind here......'
Damn, probably wont ever get to know. But do have my own little theory...

Hello Marten, thank you for getting involved, lovely to see people from other countries part of this forum. I'm old school and love old Minis and BMC cars. Never judge the book by the cover. I've been taught. If ever you don't understand an issue, send a private message for more understanding if you know what I mean :D

It is nice to know who’s who’s and who’s where, I’ve met people near and far via the forum.
I can see why people don’t want to publish there details that’s where pm’s are handy.
Some people’s jobs/ personal lives mean its best to stay under the radar!
Anyway can we talk about minis :lol:

Missed the previous tread, but I would like to add, if it was aimed at Andrew it was totally out of order as Andrew is doing a fantastic job on his restoration and is very honest about it, which can’t be said for a lot of other cars out there and for me is probably the most enjoyable tread. Look at the way they restore DB5’s original shell goes in the bin and a new shell is bought for 80-90k and they build it back up. Andrews car is the original car for me anyway!

I’m not entirely sure it was a pop at Andrew. It was pretty ambiguous, if the poster wants to try again and actually get to the point I wouldn’t particularly have a problem with that.

He had obviously got an issue with shells being extensively repaired and still rightly being classed as their original shell.
He had been prowling the forum with this subject in mind ...and there for could not have not seen HOY...and knew he was talking to Andrew, so as far as I'm concerned he was having a go at HOY./Andrew

People who go out of there way to be confrontational,or single out a member and attack them are not welcome in my book,a healthy debate is always good to get even the novices involved like me,I was attacked on the mini forum moderators did nothing so now I contribute on this forum

Snoopy64 makes an EXCELLENT Point!

I have always aspired to this being an INTERNATIONAL FORUM, while non English speakers are in a minority, we do have a lot of non UK participants. Posts can often be misinterpreted when a reader is reading in a second language.

In my experience, this is particularly the case with our cousins from the States & irony :lol:
