Captain Slow saying hi

Post by Captain Slow » Sat Sep 12, 2009 10:53 pm

Hi all,

I'm Sam, a student from 'oop North, all-round good egg and old car nut. I don't own an 800 (yet :wink: ) but do have fond memories of my father's Stone Grey XX 827 SLi auto saloon (F393AUA).

Chances are a lot of you'll know me from other forums, but if there's owt else about me you want to know give me a shout. (Any PMs asking for bank details will be deleted :lol: )

In about a fortnight I start the first year of an undergraduate degree course in Politics at Huddersfield University. Thanks for the welcome.



What're you studying Alucard - I presume given your location it would be daft to assume we'll be at the same institution. Also, I can't imagine your insurance quote on the Sterling is cheap at our age (That said, it's cheaper for me to insure an 827 Coupe - a similar quote to insuring a 309 Pug - than I thought it would be...)
