ASBO by name but not always by nature

I have an unhealthy passion for German cars and ///M's in particular with a Macau Blue/champagne 3.6 and an Estoril Blue E36 Evo currently occupying the stable.

I'm 25, live and work in Aberdeen as a Contracts Engineer and spend most of my waking hours thinking about or being around cars. Sometimes the ladyfriend gets a look in too

Other hobby's include spending rather too long on the Xbox, and err, cars I guess!

Will punt up some pics of me myself and I when I get the chance.

Simon.

Hey guys,

JRobbo = John Robinson. I'm 42, and live in the suburbs of Melbourne, Australia with my lovely wife Angelina. I'm an IT Architect/Manager and I work for IBM.

Here is a picture of me in Tibet last year:



Errrr, i'm the fat one on the right....

Also love travelling, have been though quite a few Asian countries in the past 4 years. I'm really into detailing, and spend far too much time detailing my car, and those of my friends.

John

Hello guys. My name is David. I am 42yo and am now a public servant of sorts, but have a history of working in the law and as company director of companies ranging from public relations to waste water treatment.

I do not own an M5 but used to. I do own #62 of the 70 1995 BMW 540i Manual Limited Editions (their full and offical title) sold in Australia to fill the hole created by BMW Australia's failure or inability to import the 3.8 version of the M5 into Australia. They are the Australian equivalent of the Canadian M540i and the US 540i M-Sport and have the full 1995 M5 suspension and kit, other than the body kit, t/stars instead of M-Par's and, of course, the engine. I have also owned #19 of the same 70 cars and have come close to buying a few of the others as well.

Not wishing to dredge up the 3.6 M5 -v- the 540i/6 debate again, but I owned #62 prior to purchasing my M5 and when the wife insisted I sold one, the choice was easy and vindicated recently as part of our Australian annual E34 supercar tour at Winton racetrack when #62 delivered the fastest time of the day ahead of a number of 3.6 M5's.

Speaking of the wife, I am happily married to Sarah and have 3 delightful daughters, aged 6, 3 and 1.

In terms of hobbies, my career keeps me very busy so my BMWs (I also have a 1985 Hartge H23) are my main hobby after family and home renovations, although I do enjoy travelling and snow-skiing when I can do either or both.

A pic is attached of me (in the red top) at the briefing of drivers as part of the 2006 Australian E34 supercar tour.



Cheers

David B

I am Raymond (36), married with Annie and together we have two children, Wouter (5) and Thomas (3). Like their father, both are crazy about cars, but also trains. I work as a hardware design engineer in Hengelo (Netherlands).

Next to driving and maintaining my E28S and E34S, I love spending time with my family. Other hobbies are skiing, Single ended directly heated Triode amplifiers, hiking, photography and (military) history. As part of my interest in the E34S and E28S I take part in organizing meetings, most important the annual E34S meeting in the Alps.

Hi I'm Terry and I live in Toronto Canada and besides hooning around in my ///M, I like to race fast sailboats in a big breeze, scuba-dive and exotic travel with Her Ladyship. I work in IT for cancer treatment and research.

That shot is from Key West Race week in 2006 aboard a Mumm30 in 30knts (my own boat is a J/35-the e34M5 of sailboats). I am second from the front with the vang in hand. And yes, I am gutted to not be there this year.

Two wrongs don't make a right. But three lefts do.
