And so here it is, Merry Christmas…
Thank you to AROnline readers new and old for your continued support of the site through a year of change, and regardless of your creed, colour or religion, please enjoy the festive season with the people who matter most to you.
Here’s hoping that Santa brought you just what you wanted – in my case a power steering rail for a Mk 1 Rover 800 and a replacement for the missing hubcap on my ’93 Rover 214. And underpants, but you wouldn’t be interested in those.
Whoever he or she is (to quote my all-time favourite comic, Dave Allen), may your god go with you – don’t overdose on the sprouts, and keep checking in on AROnline throughout 2015, as there’ll be plenty going on – not least a series of articles to mark the 10th anniversary of that fateful day in 2005 when it was all over for Rover.
I’m sure I speak for the entire AROnline team of volunteer writers when I thank you from the heart for keeping that flag flying, and to the contributors yourselves may I also extend a heartfelt thank you – without you, there’d be no AROnline, and all that you do, for the love of the site and the love of the cars, is wholeheartedly appreciated.
Please raise a glass, be it the first or the midst of many, and drink a toast to yourselves, and to AROnline’s future as the ONLY one-stop British car web resource. And while you’re at it, please also raise a toast to the site’s founder, Mr Keith Adams – he may have moved on to pastures new, but without his enthusiasm and tenacity, none of us would be reading this now.
Have a good ‘un…
Craig and the AROnline team
