I like it so far, too. Different but in a good way since other forum layouts are getting so "classic" compared to this ;)

This is going to be funny, but one time I got this long detailed ranting email from an English man who was offended that I called my Triumph European :)

I think we need to add a Classic British Cars section

hehehe

I agree. I was almost bounced out of the British Car Club when I was new for referring to our annual show as "European" instead of "British and European"!

hmmm, that's some British "pride" going on or what? Britian is part of the European continent so they're European by definition. British Europeans, French Europeans, German Europeans ...all Europeans.

I've had European cars and my favorite was an XKE made by those clever British folks.

You might have noticed that Great Britain is an island, not part of the European continent.

The English speak of "going to Europe" or to "the Continent" when they travel to France, Germany, etc.

And, if we're getting picky about names...nobody ever made a car called an XKE. Jaguar made the E-Type -- and some American agency put out ads for the XKE.

Sorry, you got me on the E-Type, thanks for the correction. I was sloppy with my terms ...how could I do that to a car I love so much?

On the Europe thing, it seems to me that there is the "continent of Europe", which includes The British Isles and Iceland (Iceland is obviously much farther away from the mainland than any part of the British Isles but is still part of Europe); and there is "continental Europe" which is the mainland and excludes those island nations. But clearly by any definition I found, both Iceland and the British Isles are part of Europe whether they like it or not.

Or how about the term we use - EuroBrit. covers both in one term.

Or maybe BritEuro Naw sounds like some new teeny bopper pop star.

EuroBrit then.
