I wonder if there's mileage in creating a new forum "Cars Saved" to provide more focus to our collective jubilation as shown in the recent posts in this thread?

Once a sufficient body of threads built up, it would show the wider web public the more positive/rewarding side of classic ownership, and demonstrate the success of the Club in keeping the R8 alive and rolling.

I agree with this. If we're really all about saving R8s, then we need to show that a really fantastic car shouldn't be scrapped just because the cost of repairs can't be recovered on resale value at the moment. I truly believe if this attitude were reversed, it would mark a "bottom" in the valuations of R8s and we'd start to see prices climb. That, and evidence of good detailing - which results from cars being cherished rather than just maintained.

I'm doing my bit with publishing the re-sprays and metalwork I've had done on this site - and the detailing too (see my car mats thread...) But we need more. Much more. A separate sub-forum might be in order, certainly - called something like "success stories" or something even more attention grabbing.

Just been doing some Google searches and came across the link in here to the ebay ad from 2015.. This is now my car, its just turned 57k and I use it most days.. It is in need of some work having been stood for 2 years prior to me owning it.
Sadly someone removed the boot carpet so I need to find a replacement. I believe raider did some repairs and while in the main they have held up the paint work has not, so I will refresh the paint at some point.. Interesting to read the comments about it from back then.. Oh and the service history mentioned in the eBay ad disappeared too which is a shame.. Still it's a cracking car and a credit to the original owner and to raider...

I’ve put 2 and 2 together.... you must be a friend of Michael who has the SEi. I have one identical to him, and exchange messages with him every now and again.
