    Well thats about 10 years!

    As per some discussion the other day, the first post from someone who wasn't managing the site was 25th August 2004........so about 10 years ago.

    So happy 10th birthday to VPCUK. (Volvot5 or whatever you want to call it )

    Lets all reminisce on our most memorable moments together and maybe the things we could have done rather than been on here

    My favourite thing here has to be the members, many are great people, some are ££££ing loons and completely crazy (but in a good way).

    Helping to run this site over the last few years has had its interesting moments, its great moments, its stressful moments and extremely sad and upsetting moments but I'm still here and so are many of you. (Probably to spite me :p).

    Peace out, love you all (even the whiny ones), feel free to comment below

    It's probably time to admit that my thanks count was slightly inflated as a joke.......but I cant remember the joke, or why and forgot to reduce it lol. (I increased the thanks count by 2481, I only have 100,000 really).
