Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from INOPIAN

Phillip Roberts 22. December 2014 Cars 1 Comment

In the name of all our Inopians I would like to thank you for all the support you have given us.

We only started in October but it has been a splendid few months. We will be taking the Christmas holiday off and will focus on our families, and you should too. There will not be any articles until January when we start again. We`ll be bringing you more articles, and even more obscure and long forgotten cars. We will entertain you with our best efforts. We are also taking the time to better develop Inopian to give you a more entertaining and enjoyable experience, so wish us luck and we’ll read each other in 2015.

Take your time off, relax, switch the media off, leave the car in the garage and just enjoy this happy time with your families. We wish you a Merry Christmas a Happy New Year and many many presents under the Christmas tree!

About Phillip Roberts

As a little boy my Dad always told me stories about the glorious days of automotive pioneering and days when classics were common. This has influenced me in such an effect I have become a helpless petrol-head...

…my driving license was still on it's way when I had bought my first petrol-smelling Italian stallion... No, it wasn't a Ferrari... It was Fiat Regata, twin choke Weber 1.5 in neat condition with bad attitude. It wasn't in any way quick by today's standards nor was it a good handler. More like an SUV actually. It was so high that my girlfriend at the time, (a little taller than a bucket,) almost needed a ladder to get into it. However, it was a good car till the first winter came and I wrecked it.

My next car was a BMW E30 1987 2.4d. It is still my all-time favorite. It just had a black metallic paint job done when I bought it and shiny chrome bumpers. As Steel Panther would say say, "that car was bitchin'." I had nice Alpina alloys that I kept getting nicked for. Apparently they were not marked in my documents so each time the police caught me I got a fine.

After about a dozen fines in 3 months I said `sod it` and had BMW amend my documents. This one wasn't really quick off the mark but once it was up to speed you could throw it into any corner and it would come out still alive and pointing the right way. I sold it eventually because I didn't have the time to get it back to original condition and I later found out that the guy I sold it to wrecked it couple of months after. What a shame.

I also had a BMW E46. I liked the look of it but it was useless. It had so many problems one day I wished someone would run into me so I could get rid of it and get some money back. Guess what... a week later a Spanish fellow in a borrowed company Skoda ran up the boot and parked on my back seat. My girlfriend got a panic attack and became so furious she would have beaten him up if I`d let her. However, I had successfully gotten rid of the car.

So this is the story of my beginnings. There are two things that I love other than music and my family. Writing and cars. Why not combine them? I figured there may be more people like me and so I wanted to participate in this amazing opportunity for everyone to share their knowledge, experience and passion, and build something unique while doing it.
