Default I've lost interest in ovp... Am I alone?

Approaching a couple of years ago I was really interested in ovp and the progress but as time has gone on and more and more s regs appear I get a little bit less interested. I am alone?

Like all projects, whether it is a housebuild, carbuild or just an Airfix model there is periods of intense activity and then periods of no activity at all. As I understand it, this is a long term project and largely voluntary. I am sure it will get there in the end and be on show for members to enjoy. The other S reg's that turn up will eventually be crushed, but OVP will, hopefully, remain. If you are interested then just be patient, and if not interested, then don't worry about it. It's not all like Wheeler Dealers where on TV they appear to turn it around in just a few days, when in reality, it probably takes months and months (not to mention an awful lot more money than they admit to)

I'd be interested in learning more but then I'd like to know more about what other interesting parties used the 75/ZT/ZTT too, Police, Government cars, Ambulance etc is there a section for this? I believe the Royals where using a few at one point, not sure if that was more towards the protection team or themselves?.

Brilliant, at work at the moment we are somewhere between 5 and 6
Typifies most IT projects I reckon.

Prince Edward had a LWB 75 from 2003-05. I owned it for a while.
