NEW FEATURE: Post Like system!!!

At long last, we have successfully implemented a comprehensive post rating/like system. With casual readers and visitors vastly outnumbering frequent posters, it is not always apparent to users that others are reading, enjoying and grateful for their posts. If you are too shy to post and want to express your thanks, now you can!

Liking a post is easy - click this thumbs up in the top right hand corner of the post: Image

Can I encourage everyone to use this new feature enthusiastically and liberally and be sure to go back to your favourite old topics and like old posts. This will help build up useful user 'like' profiles and give credit to the users who has provided so much value to this community. This in turn helps guests and newcomers sort useful answers and posters from others.

This goes to regular forum lurkers especially - please show your appreciation with a 'like'!

Featuring:
  • Liked post counters in every user profile (given & received)
  • Liked post leaderboard accessible from the index and Quick Links Menu
  • Receive notifications when your post is liked, configurable from the User Control Panel (in forum notification and/or email notifications available or off)
  • You can remove a like if you made a mistake by clicking the undo button where the thumbs up used to sit (but the user will be notified)
  • Plus more

Eckford R100 Super Sedan from late 80's/early 90's

#1 Post by TOWROTA » Thu Aug 02, 2007 11:05 pm

Long shot I know, but does anyone have any pictures or information of the Grant/Stuart Eckford (father/son) R100 Super Sedan (type setup) from the late 80's, early 90's?

It was white with red/blue stripes and had HUGE spoilers and flares and I think it was featured in Fast Fours (or something equivalent) at the time. I did have a copy but god only knows where that went. I THINK the story had lots of sparks graphic'd on or something similar. From what I can remember it was extremely fast and had constant class wins etc. 99% sure it was Sydney based.

My father did a lot of work to the car at the time and this was THE reason for me getting hooked on rotor's. Would be very interested to see if anyone knows anything about this little car and where it ever got to.

Thanks in advance...

You wouldn't happen to remember what number was on the side of the car? Either way I'm pretty sure this car was advertised on My105 not so long ago so someone on here would definitely have saved the pictures 8)

Sorry Eeyore, I can see the car in my mind, but can't remember the number. Hopefully someone's got something. Thanks for the lead mate.
