@OP: I don't know how the old day was, but this is quite common.

I'm pretty sure there is a reason all my spanish and french friends make fun of the fiat 500. After finally driving one this spring, all I have to say I know why everybody makes fun of it. Miata/S2000 are fun to drive but are not better than a 3. Personally I'm not a fan of the 3 but to call it boring and mediocre is ridiculous.

To the OP, welcome back.

While I am not sure if many of the same posters/lurkers from 2002-4 are still around - nor do I think that I made a substantive enough contribution to be remembered, I wanted to say hello to anyone who is around from back in the day. Of course, hello to those of you who have joined since 2004.
I haven't been too heavily involved in buying many exciting pieces, I have however become addicted to Loro Piana outerwear. By my figure I have spent enough on Loro Piana coats that I could have bought a BMW 3-series instead.
I am not sure that I will be here daily, but I do plan to stick around and try to catch-up on what has been happening.
Again, hello to friends old and I hope new.
-Andy

Holy shit. Can you tell us about this Loro Piana obsession?
Spending $35,000 on coats is an amazing story.
Please give us some background on how this happened.

How did you end up with a $35K figure? That's how much a 1-series costs.

OP, Pics would improve this thread immensely and perhaps get the Road and Track crew back on topic.

Hello back at you!

I didn't know that Styleforum even existed seven years ago, but now that I do, I'm glad that I'm here!

Welcome back!

 

Glad to see we in MI getting some heavy presence on this forum, at least we'd be very well-dressed on the way to the soup kitchen :-)

None of these cars would do. One lake-effect snow event and you'd be better off walking for then next few months.

What you need is something big and American, preferably getting less than 14mpg...

I'd take a 335 over the coats. Welcome back!

Prices range between £2000 -£4000 for most of them. I have seen examples for twice that figure also.
