Taking a trip down memory lane and was thinking about joining the forum back in 2008.
Now I will be totally honest and say when I joined A-Plan I knew nothing about the jap car scene and ( shock horror ) had not seen any of the Fast and Furious films. ;)
My passion was always classic American cars, but I was keen to learn and put the effort in to understand the jap scene.
I remember the first good friend I made was Ross ( Balloo2u ) after I helped him out with a windscreen claim, he invited me to loads of shows and events.
I remember my first real experience was at the Llandow track. Keith who owned the forum really appreciated me showing up to support the event and wanted to give me a passenger ride in his Skyline.
Again I will be honest and say I am a terrible passenger in a normal car let alone a highly modified Skyline driven by a big bald headed nutter I had only met twice.
I did the passenger ride and Keith with great amusement said I was the biggest girl he had ever taken around the track and he loved how white my knuckles went gripping the seat and hearing me scream lol.
I was also very popular after Chris Cuthbertson made me puke while again doing a passenger ride around RAF Marham. I will still defend myself and say it was the Guinness that me Ross and Jo Parsons drank the night before and the dodgy morning bacon sandwich and not Chris hitting speeds of 176MPH ( I will never forget that ).
I also had a laugh supporting Japfest and giving Jeremy Clarkson a business card ( which he was not amused ), and also supporting the Miss Banzai tunnel run.
Made some really great friends over the years like Jo,Ross, Keith Bruce, Divol and many more. As always the SOC forum is amazing and I am really glad to still be supporting you guys 7 years later
All the best
