    Default Newbie - Pete says hello

    Hi All
    Pete here. I live in Oxford, am 75, and work down near Heathrow at a company responsible for the nationwide deliveries of misrouted airline baggage. (lovely job, passengers shouting in one ear and airline agents in the other)
    Interest in all things mechanical from an early age, starting with the dismantling of my first bike when I was 10, much to the annoyance of my parents. This interest progressed throughout my life via service in the RAF on aircraft, and the inevitable playing around with motorbikes and cars.
    Currently I own a 2006 Saab 150 TiD Sportwagon with the CDTi engine, and I have 'guested' on this forum for a long time. I now have my beady eyes on the latest Signum estates, and have developed the ability to drool out of one side of my mouth, without my OH seeing, whenever one goes by. I have been advised that we cannot afford another car but I will be working on it and the downward spiral of the Saab empire may well assist me in my quest.
    I have previously owned Vauxhalls; first was a 1990 Cav CD, gear ratio too high for towing, followed by a 1990 SRI, much better. Later a couple of Novas. (OH's dad years ago had a Velox, ex Alcan staff car - she used to drive it faster than he ever dared)
    My hobbies are (natch) car maintenance, DIY, car maintenance and caravanning. (BTW - I do NOT hold up traffic by crawling along with the 'van at 45mph - I have a nice big Pistonheads sticker on the back of it and it is there for a reason )
    I find that this forum is along the lines of PH for the humour etc, and am pleased to be part of the community.
    Pete

    The job? I could write a book! Hope I never lose any luggage, but at least I know how to get service if/when I have to call for updates......

    (just a little taster of what I encounter in my daily job - American lady calling from her hotel for update on her missing bag - she "(imagine it in the American drawl) "Do you have any idea of what it is like for an American lady in London without any clean underwear?" Me - "Er - no, not really......"
