Morning all,

Somehow OCC has made it to twenty years of age, the domain was registered on 20th December 2001.

The website, initially called Jalopy and just a few pages in size, started out on a free hosting account before being switched to a proper hosting service and domain name in December of '01.

So just a quick thanks to everyone that has contributed in some way over the years, on the main site and also here on the forum which soldiers on despite the growth of Facebook et al. The internet was a much smaller place twenty years ago and it's changed beyond recognition in many ways, but the continued interest out there for creaky old cars continues unabated, which has enabled OCC to continue on for all this time.

Here's to the next twenty.

Thanks, RJ
