Why are you here?
« on: November 22, 2008, 05:07:27 pm »
Now we've got the membership up to 50-odd, I'd like to start planning what happens next.

To start with, I've created a simple poll, and I'd be mega-grateful if everyone could pick the option that best describes them.

Do you own a GPA?  Got a 500 on order?  Or are you just hanging out?

Feel free to add your comments, too.

Cheers!

    I'll be buying an Abarth 500 at some point, so thats my specific reason.

    Being a particular fan of hot hatches though I'm here because the Abarth relaunch interests me,  both for the 500 and Punto.

    I'm here because I've got a 500 Abarth on order. We are also car mad. We also have a Smart Roadster, a 1974 Beetle, an MG BGT, a T25 VW Camper Van and a Sport Track 4x4. Unfortunately the Smart will have to go when the Abarth arrives due to lack of space. A shame as it's a brilliant car.

    I'm here because I've got a 500 Abarth on order and have an unhealthy obsession for Italian sports cars which has cost me a fortune. I need help!  ;D

    We're getting there, Alex

    We're just not as fast as an Abarth, yet!

    Alex I had to Vote for "some other reason" as you didn't offer a vote for "I have a 500 Abarth on order"!!

    Ah, I'd figured you'd be covered by "I'm thinking of buying a 500 Abarth" but I see your point.  I'll edit the options.

    Thanks to those that have contributed so far.

    500 Abarth on order; when it came to trying to find something completely different to our current Boxster without paying a fortune and wishing to have something better than 22mpg (Evo or Scooby), we thought back to how much fun we had with Italian hatches 10 years ago and it was a fairly simple choice.
