Introduce yourself to AOEM

In light of the old introduction thread being a bit out of date and under used, here is the brand spanking new AOEM introductory thread

Just pop down who you are, where you are, what you drive and at least one (reasonably interesting) fact about yourself

This also applies to members currently known to the AOEM staff (i.e. me).

MiTo 155 Veloce

My name is Mrs GTLewi (Sarah) and I'm a teacher in a junior school.
I also live in deepest darkest Derbyshire not too far from the city but far enough away from Bradders! (I would have added a smilie/ winky face but I don't know how).
I drive a Mito 155 veloce and a 916 Spider. I'm also allowed to drive GTLewi's 3.2 V6, usually when we've gone out and he wants a drink.
After some thought and debate with GTLewi, I've decided everything I think is an interesting fact about me isn't really that interesting. I'm vegetarian, only drink water or alcohol, pretty good at art and love animals. Sorry I've not been on TV either!

I'm Richard Kelly and I also live in Derbyshire. My vital statistics are big and fat and I would like to see world peace (sorry wrong I know).
I drive a 2.2LE Spider and the boss Jan Drives a GT Cloverleaf. I am the financial controller for a small software company and the boss is a regional administrator working in social services.
Claims to fame, bu**er all really, although me and the boss won a master class with Aldo Zilli. Also me and LFCAlfa got banned from the Alfa hospitality suite this year at the festival of speed because we were dressed in Spidermen suits. Look out for a repeat performance at Mitcar (Spidermen in their Spiders).

Also I have volunteered to take on the secretaries Job for the Derbyshire section of AROC. I should know if I get the job on Sunday. My intention being to forge closer links between AO & AROC, we'll see what happens.

I think it is just a matter of getting it formalised on Sunday. We have to have the members vote to make sure that we comply with the rules. I will send you a PM when I know more.

Hi all. I'm Sue. I live in Birmingham and I work in Redditch. I drive a MiTo 155.
My TV appearance was a hospital docu/fly on the wall program a few years ago, not The Professionals.
That does however remind me that we spent a very pleasant few hours chatting to Martin Shaw, of The Professionals fame, one afternoon whilst waiting for a glider lesson.

Hi AOEMers (and guests),

My name is Les and my only claim to fame is that since retiring I've become Shusky's (unpaid) Chauffeur.
I live mainly in the shed and garden when I'm not washing other peoples car for her!
I'm a new Alfa owner with my White Charger GT but have been privileged to drive a Mito when it suits Sue!
My only TV appearence was on the news back in '75! (don't ask) plus I also once met a Professional!
I attend as many meets as possible such as AOEM, AOWM, SWARM and National Events as it gets me out of the shed.

BTW, Please keep this rant to yourselves as Shusky will make life hell for my if she finds out!

Anyway it's good to read about all you film/tv stars, very informative indeed and I hope this sheds some light on who and what I am!
