View Full Version : Nice meeting in person

Just had a nice visit with Doug (AngliaGT). He's on his way back to California from his trip to Colorado. First time I've met anyone from the forum in person. Really nice to have a chance to chat with another car guy for a while, and always good to make another friend.

Here's to hoping he has a safe rest of his trip.

Maybe we should plan a BCF car show somewhere in the center of our population mass - anybody looked at that funny map thing lately to see where the center might be?

Ha, okies. Everyone to Tonys. He's buying. Bring something I can take home on my trailer.

Doug stopped by my place earlier in the week. Finally made a connection after a few failed attempts over the years. Original attempts began after I joined NAEFR (North American English Ford Registry) but it wasn't until we were both on the BCF that we actually met in person. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/thumbsup.gif

Doug gets around!! I had a nice afternoon with him at my shop in Maryland over the summer. I missed him at the local British Car Day, but he stopped by the next monday. It is always good to put a face to the posts.

Doug *does* get around!
I had a nice chat with him by phone when he was "east" earlier this year. We couldn't meet up because I was going to be away when he was nearby, but he called me anyway. A great guy to speak to!
Also, he just sent me some great copies of historic race flyers.....great stuff!

Nothing is ever close to Utah, so it was a real treat to have someone passing through.

Love to see a BCF show somewhere. Tony's sounds nice to me. I'll even bring a trailer so I can help clean out his garage a bit. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif
