Who am I

Hello
For those of you who do not know me.
My name is Darren ( though I have been known by other more explicit names!)
I am 41yrs old & currently enjoying what many would to refer to as a
"Midlife, what is this life business all about" chapter.

My Grandfather was a VTOL propulsion Engineer on the Hawker Harrier.
My inspiration.
I have been an Engineer for 20 yrs within the Automotive industry.
Recently, I have been trying something different maintaining & repairing //M
& tricky Jap cars( Oh, & a siton lawnmower before Davidoli mentions it)
I hope my dedication to the vehicle will make up for my lack of interpersonal
skills

I started shooting firearms when I was 8 yrs old & has been a life long passion:

With some success on occasion ( more down to luck actually)

Does JK Rowling know you're 'friends' with her creation? She'll have the lawyers on you in no time :p

Ha ha Greg never would have guessed you to be the "hairband" kind of guy! V funny

I guess I have to do a proper one since even Dirty Harry Farrell has

As you all know I am 26, living in the Netherlands, have been employed in the automotive world for 11 years. Since the end of 2006, I run my own business, called Nevea , basically providing any automotive service possible varying from consulting to chauffeuring to maintaining and restoring. I work closely together with Stevie and Lowplainsdrifter


I bought my first car when I was 17, it was a bog-standard Opel Ascona (90hp) which soon got converted to Calibra Turbo engine (288 whp) and I kept ever since, original mileage 102.000 km



I like bikes aswell, in feb 2006 I built my best friend Simon this Kawasaki :







This is what I like to try doing best:



Fancy the occasional sideways action, which has got me to build my own driftcar out of an M535i kindly provided by Midnightsun


This is the man who taught me everything I know in a 1948 Cooper-Jap"



I like to travel too, mainly to visit my good friend Martina who lives in Prague:





Ofcourse a large part of my life is connected to M5board, and my gratitude for the fun and friendship from both this board and the German E34M5.de is huge.

Hi there everyone, I'm Paul and 45 yrs young. I am married with 2 boys and 1 girl aged 9 to 13. I used to be a stockbroker, laid off in 2002! Now I manage a poultry breeding farm and own a food importing/distribution business. I still invest in stocks, and luckily have'nt been fully invested lately. I am now into cycling, but before that I was into tennis, scuba diving & golf. In the motorsports arena, I used to love motocross when I was a kid. I also used to own a Suzuki SRAD 750. Favorite websites/reading material are cycling websites(cyclingnews.com, pezcycling.com), stock news(cnbc.com) and of course(m5board.com & bimmerforums.com). I currently subscribed to BMW Car and love re-reading every issue! I also devour EVO, European Car, Car and Bimmer too! Me and my wife love travelling and would want to visit London. I havent been there but been to Paris, Florence, Venice etc.

Here is a pic of me in a cycling crit which was held in a car race track. I am no. 321, wearing a light green outfit with the team logo "autotrend".

Looks like I know whom to ask if I want to get into guns! That picture of your skyline is really cool. Now, why on earth did you sell it?

He didn't - he has it along with the M5.

Wow...was a bit worried about this thread cause i started it after spending the afternoon in the pub but it sure turned out great !

Great to read all your stories and seeing those great pics. Really enjoy this thread !

Hardly told anything about myself so here goes...

I'm Raymond, 36 years old, living in the east of Holland and single.

Quit my job with bright career prospects quite some time ago. Nowadays they call it burnout and stay at home for 6 months but i just quit and went travelling.

Used to do what everyone seemed to expect of me without really making any choices and without much joy. Nowadays i only do what i like doing. Nobody is depending on me so why not. Not being after status, the latest gadgets and financial security brings great freedom and that's exactly what i need. Always work shitty temporary jobs and once i've got enough cash to go travelling for a couple of months i'm off.

Always travel on my own and without a plan. Love meeting interesting people and sole backpacking sure is a great way. Every year i spend Xmas on the same Thai island (see pic). That's where i really feel at home, knowing most of the locals and all the regulars is really great. Also...a white sandy beach with a palm tree in the background works wonders while chatting up Swedish chicks

Sadly didn't have the cash to go last Xmas because of spending too much on the M5...reminds me of something Tyler Durden said in Fight Club:

The things you own end up owning you.

Cheers guys
Raymond
