Chat/Discussion Kind of like a VW club online - you can sit in our virtual pub and talk about whatever you want to. All opinions are valid, but please no insulting (other than to our intelligence,) abusive or libellous posts. Please feel free to post your opinion on any given subject, but also be aware that others have the equal right to disagree with you - and some will certainly tell you so. No 'For Sale' or 'Want To Buy' ads, plugs for your business, links to 'for sale' ads or Ebay links to your (or your mate's) auction (please use the VZi 'Classifieds' section) - this also includes thinly veiled "What's my car worth?" threads too (please use the 'Dude! What's My Car Worth?' forum) - and please don't use just to post links to other VW forums or websites - we are aware that other sites exist (obviously), but blatant 'plugs' (poaching) will simply be deleted.

Default Me, The Ravage of Time

so I was thinking after speaking with Mr Slug on the, Who would you you like to meet thread, about growing older and how you change.
So I thought I would be a bit self indulgent, and post up the ravage of time, ....yes, photos of me through the years
Pic heavy Im afraid....just a note, any of the girls in the photos were just friends ...apart from the wife of course

Ickle me...


Ickle me a bit older with my younger sisters who are also twins.


jump up to my 21st birthday early 80's, me in the check lumber shirt

Fat and Old, is not exactly accurate is it?

Should also mention bald and 4 eyed



To be honest, you havn't worn that badly, - you are not fat, you still have a good deal of hair, age is only a state of mind.

I Reckon you do all right, seen a lot worse - like every morning when I shave . . . . . Seriously, I'd really like to get below a 36 waist now, but was about the same build as you in my twenties - my hair is thinning like a sand dune and th only reason I don't wear glasses is because I'm too ignorant to admit it - went to the pictures during the week and borrowed my daughters

It would be fun if other folk posted up 'then and now'

Thanks for sharing, I wander if generations into the future people could do the same as this? as with the age of digital cameras the photo has lost its true value / never get developed and lost on old crashed hard drives.. very sad thought
