  1. Design and Lifestyle
    I think it could be a good idea to have a thread dedicated to our favorite cars. I'm not an expert at all but recently I discovered this beauty: built in 1948 by Norman Timbs, the Buick Streamliner disappeared until it was found in a desert (!) in 2002, sold for 17000 $ and restored...
  2. United States Urban Issues
    What do you consider the best road in the US? You can use your own parameters: best maintained, best scenery, best driving experience, or whatever. Also, what was the best road you ever drove on?

    I didn't found any thread like this here. Here you can post pictures of classic cars. Unlike my Rare cars on your streets thread you are here allowed to post pictures of both common and rare cars. It doesn't matter where the pictures was taken. I have one simple rule. The pictures got to be...

  10. Newcastle Metro Area
    Building the Newcastle Western Bypass (1987-1990) This thread is a "duplicate thread" amalgamating into one place ALL the various 'Building the Newcastle Western Bypass' posts that have been made on the forum in the past. The purpose of this thread is primarily to aid future researchers, and...
  11. Newcastle Metro Area
    This story has been in the news for about twenty years or more. Every so often "something seems to be about to happen" or (as on this occasion) a tragedy on the road leads to someone "calling for something to happen". This story is likely to run-and-run (unlike the road) for a long time, so I...
  12. Изградња, привреда и инфраструктура
    Nadam se da ne otvaram ovu temu za dzabe i da ce biti puno vesti iz ove branse;) Ovde ostavljajte vesti kako o proizvodjacima automobila tako i ostalih vozila(kamiona, spec. vozila itd.) kao i fabrikama koje rade delove za motorna vozila tzv. "komponentasi". Stize par vesti...

  15. Birmingham Metro Area
    Following the Rover, Peugeot events, Prodrive expansion and the recent speculation concerning Ford's Premier Auto Group I think a specific thread is about due. Last week JCB were talking about aquiring Jaguar and today this has been in The Birmingham Post.

    I like to see pics of exotic cars in Israel cities out of curiosity.
  17. La Masia
    Lloc destinat a parlar de temes varis, anècdotes, recordar antics foraires, presentar-se els nous, parlar de lo que no vagi normalment al fòrum, parlar de lo que et peti, recomanacions, suggerències...bé, una espècie de "La Barra" a la catalana. ;)
