    In five days

    In five days BCF will turn 19 years old! When I started this experiment I had brown hair (a distant memory). As we approach 19 years we are nearly at 23 thousand members and have gathers over 1 million 100 thousand posts. Happy birthday BCF!

    I think your spare time "experiment" has turned out very well! Like planting a few trees and caring for them over the years.

    This is what BCF looked like back in 2000/2001 when she first went online. This was when the "Pub" was called "Free for All" (bad idea).

    Neat history (with that page). Wish I'd found you all earlier. I was very active in the Mini-Mania boards back in about 2000, but didn't find you guys until 2011 (after a couple of years with no LBC).

    Very glad and appreciative of all the effort and dedication you've put into this for all those years, Sir! Thank you!!

    Like Mark, I was a bit late to the party. I'd been chasing the Colonel around the 'net for a while before coming across the BCF. But once found, I'm like a bad case of the fleas...

    Congratulations and Happy Birthday.

    Without the help and advice I have got from this forum I would have never finished my TR3A. So much help in so many areas. Thank you.

    Happy Birthday and Congrats. A fellow Gateway Healey member told me about BCF at our club Christmas party in 2001. I got around to registring on 12/24/01. The help I've received has been great along with the enjoyment of participating in a civilized discussion about our LBC's.
    The highlight was being able to spend time with you and your wife last May on our way to CA. Your are as gracious and interesting in person as your are as the 'boss' here.
    Here's to many, many more years of the best forum on the web.
