Clicking on this link might seriously damage your health if you dislike the idea of this site containing information about cars produced by other manufacturers. However, if you’re like me, and love a good automotive yarn, this might well be right up your street.
As you can see, I’ve uploaded the Talbot Tagora development story which I penned a few years back for www.rootes-chrysler.co.uk, a site I originally set up to be that manufacturer’s equivalent to AROnline and BMC>MG. Unfortunately, I just didn’t have the sheer amount of time needed to build the site succesfully and passed the concept on to the people who run Allpar in the USA. However, I did put a mirror of my original site online at NTLWorld and left it to rot there.
I have, though, periodically wondered whether it’s time to expand the remit of AROnline, often taking the idea off the shelf, dusting it off in the forum, only to put it away again as time went on. I’ve done it again only, this time, I’ve plonked the story online as a trial to see how you feel that it fits…
…and to work out whether the site’s readership is predominently comprised of BMC>MG enthusiasts – or a wider range of car enthusiasts.
Please, then, read the story (and forgive the fact that it was written years ago) and let me know if you’d like more of the same. Without your feedback, I’d hate to end up stumbling in the wrong direction!
