Yes he used to come on here regularly and has been to a few meets too, he's a nice guy. Iirc he owns a Cafe in Yarmouth. He hasn't been on here for some time though

Edit: If you do a search there is a project thread on it

If you don't like it fair enough. I just think it's a bit harsh (and wrong) to call it a standard car with stickers on.

Reply 8 just seemed a little ratty.

He might cheer up when his rust free, 5000 mile black Calibra he's searching for comes up for sale for a tenner :P

Gav how long have you known me on here? ::)

I must admit, I'm liking the idea of a stickered calibra, you'll have to wait and see what I mean until I get my rust free 5000 miler for a tenner tho :P

Long enough mate. Sometimes though you come across (to me anyway) as if you are against the world.

Maybe you just need a Calibra :) That elusive one that is :P I'm only messing, I wouldn't buy anything other than a minter either. Although IMO Olive Grey is an underrated colour :D

I wouldn't do daytona yellow as it will just look like an SE2 mate.

There's also a lime green calibra on here known as "kermit", it's hidious!

Custom paint job would be cool tho 8)

A faded SE2 at that  :) I wouldn't do it Lime Green or Focus Orange either, they've been done before, I'd like to see a Calibra done in a newer Vauxhall colour like Technical Grey or Cornflower Blue  8)

Not really, never seemed over sensitive all the times I met him.

Fed up with getting unnecessary grief from other members, more likely.

Fair enough dude, it's a shame really but not everyone integrates as easy as others :-\

I don't even remember the guy tbh.
