Presentation example :-)

Post by Duvel78 » 02 Feb 2014 09:56 pm

Hi, I'm Duvel78, working in a multinational enterprise as project manager for crazy A/V systems :D Volvo 300 Manic since 1985 when my parents purchased a lovely blue 340 variomatic limited edition for Belgium and Luxemburg, that was the begin of everything. And of course, thanks to that car, the begin of V3M! The collection of 300 series was growing but I stopped driving a 300 in 2008 because of a broken front strut on the road. Since then I was driving a C70, after that company cars (a '13 Jetta for the moment). January 2014 is quite important because I took the decision to drive 300 series again! It's the pleasure car during the weekend, a '88 360 GLT. And as you have noticed, I've decided to be active again for the V3M site and board, sorry if it's a bit a mess for the moment but I'm improving things
340pw

Cheers

Little update about me :D

Some of you know that I'm busy with TERRIFIC renovation works in a house I bought more than 1 year ago (and in which I live...), here is for example a picture of my garden one month ago :D :D

On top of that, I'm glad to announce that my girlfriend and myself are expecting the birth of our first child in October! sm97

It's a great news but it's also an extra reason (and stress!) to hurry up with the house :D So please forgive me if I'm not answering PM's quickly, I'm quite busy with a lot of things but I'm always peeping the board sm29

This is great news, I remember how so many years ago things were a lot more challenging and now it is like prehistory and things are so nice for you, it is great to hear these kind of news!

From pic, I would say next potatoes go in? :D
