Not really been active on here for a while but I have been busy building another 6
If I knew how to host some pictures I would.

To answer those who are asking about owning a 6, unless you have reasonable deep pockets don’t bother. Parts are an absolute ball ache to find

Taken me a year so far to get my latest Diablo how I want it

At my age I should know better.

So who’s still knocking around

Think most of us should know better at our age.

Yeah its not easy getting part for them now. I've recently got a parts car to chop up so I've got repair sections and spare parts to hopefully keep the rallye going for another few years. Its easier to get parts for my 50 year old camper than it is for the rallye.

Keep at it. its good that theres still a few of us about. Ive had the rallye nearly 18 years now although had 306s probably 22 years or something like that.

    I would love to upload my restoration journey of my Rallye but anytime I log on here it's just me. Seems everyone has migrated to Facebook.

    It’s nice to see a few remain on here. I try not to use faceache so it’s good to follow progress here.

    I just find facebook difficult to navigate and find anything. Nothing seems to be in date order and the comments are all over the place. At least on the forums, you can search for things and the archiving is a bit more sensible. The list of FAQ's on here was a stroke of genius all those years ago

    You used to be able to upload image attachments directly to the forum.

    Maybe that feature could be reintroduced Hmm

    I can’t see the pics for some reason. I’ve just spent 8k on a forged 2.1L, been registered for nearly 20 years! Still never met anyone or been to pugfest… One day! Would love to see a big 306 get together.
