No you aren't the only one. It is a slippery slope. Right now I only have a DII, but have future plans of a 90 and a Rangie classic. I am so overzealous about maintenance, but in the eyes of non-enthusiasts I can see their looks of even just my Disco.

I was going to add this.... The Sun is the king of tabloid, they'll make a story out of thin air, but nevertheless, the bloke and his ex? wife are hardly making an adult stand by slating each other on the www.

He's even got his own two websites now, one aimed at "the memory of his children" and the other taking potshots ar the missus.

Waste of air, the pair of them!
