    Trouble maker because without bring my place into it, have helped expose fraud in the industry at times, will not play nice with some folks like the former owner of Watchtalkforum and such things. At one time there was a forum now dead called watchgeeks. We exposed the sponsor as a marketing company making watches in Asia and passing them off as "swiss made", exposed a couple of the folks as fake SEALS or some other such stuff. I am pretty straight forward about things and enjoy the hobby which is what led me to start a place 9 years ago that was based on TZ_UK and a couple of other sites. Now I just try to enjoy myself and not worry about things too much. People have wised up, opened their eyes and think before they buy a watch just because the guy on tv says it is a limited edition, made in china from frothy beer foam and slinky worms with a REAL SWISS "made in a worm farm" in asia.

    And no I am not putting down Asian made watches.

    Welcome Alain and I wanted to say sorry about your wife. They are the greatest part of us for many reasons. And then to the other stuff. Great cars and fabulous watches. TERRIBLE choice in football teams.

    C5 is a great car, comfortable, lots of power, C7 is an even better car, beats a lot of European supercars hands down with power to spare, very comfortable and handles live a dream through the corners. My C5 is not stock though. I had the suspension upgraded to Z06 grade shocks and anti-sway bars, exhaust is 3" from the headers back with Z06 rear mufflers. Heads have been reworked as has the cam and valves,

    Is there any other fan base as pompous as us? I hardly think
