Polite request, and I hope Alec doesn't mind.
Many listers have just United Kingdom or similar, as their "Location" in their profile. It would be useful to know at least the County, if not the town, especially when using the Sales and Wants sections. It might also tempt someone to offer help with a problem if they could quickly find out where that member lived. It might be "you" wanting help!
Go on, do it, it only takes a few seconds.
You don't have to post a message, you can if you want, just edit your profile.
Perhaps in a few weeks I'll do a survey to see how we're spread about the Country/Countries.

I live near Axminster, East Devon. I have owned and driven V4s for nearly 26 years because they are so individually fantastic! I have owned more than 120 cars, including Minis, VW Beetles, various Renaults, Lancia Flavia, Rovers 60/90/105/2000/3500, Triumph Herald/Vitesse, BUT the 96 remains the best. That said, the Bristol 400/401/403s, 1957 Aston Martin DB2/4, 1949 Oldsmobile 88, 1953 Buick Roadmaster and Tatra aircooled V8 were something else. I should add that these(all of which I rode in as a kid) belonged to my father, who was in the trade in Bristol for over 40 years

Done. I am in Pembrokeshire. My favourite part of the world but close to nowhere! Two significant milestones were crossed in the project last week. The car has now spent more time on axlestands than it has off and I refitted the steering rack and upper wishbones! I am now in the exciting "rebuild" phase!

Could it be added to just under our name when we post?

I included that I'm in Liverpool in my profile, but you have to view it to see that.

Is is possible Alec?

Hi,I am in Bieldside,Aberdeen,Scotland.....waiting for the snow!!

I also drive a classic 900,3 door, 16v XS from 1992.
Previous cars have included three other classic 900's from 1986 through 1992 ( one of these was a Turbo).
My favourite is however my 1968, 96,V4 (left hooker from Germany)which is driven as often as possible.

Thrummmm....Thrummmm

Answer to James' question is no, the forum software does not cater for this

Just down the road from Genty in sunny old Pembrokeshire. Sounds like I'm the cause of all his problems and late night's.

Near Preston, Lancashire... V4s seem a bit scarce in this neck of the woods.
