I don't remember how I found out about Top Gear and Fifth Gear, but it was back in 2004. I stumbled upon Final Gear and have been forever thankful for the service it provides to the whole world, not just the US audience. Above all else, it brought many people together and helped to form strong friendships.

So, cheers to 10 years and looking forward to another 20-30-40 years. I can just see us in our 80s on this site.

You're still alive? And you were 16 when you started posting? Were kids allowed to be on the Internet back then? :eek: :p
haha yes, I knew viper from other forums before this place even existed, and yes, I'm still alive but not being single means less time for this kind of stuff!

I think we should all volunteer to PM or email an absent member and try to coax them back. Remind them what a community we have here and how awesome this place is.

Anyone remember Izari who thought his phone was better than a blowjob and liked to include his BMW keys every time he took a picture of something?

:hmm: who drives a 10cly car and has a 10 year old website?

VIPERMAN!

facebook said:
Viperman - This is the first Pakistani super hero character who lives in Karachi and his purpose is to fight against the current violence , issues and criminal activities inside the city. His aim is to see peaceful karachi because karachi is the mini-Pakistan and the core backbone of this ideological country. If this city could be clean from these blacksheeps who are hurting Pakistan internally then there is no power left to stop Pakistan to become the most powerful and peaceful region in the world. The peaceful and powerful muslim region which was seen by Allama Iqbal in his dream. [...]
Damn, got beaten to it ...

Congrats on the anniversary, and thanks to Viper, Quiky, PacketCollision for giving us all this kind of online home.

And cheers to the many, many forum members who make this an awesome place. :)

Fashionably late, but happy 10th to Final Gear. Thanks for providing us an alternative means for our Top Gear (and Fifth Gear) fixes!

:unsure:

I am really, REALLY late. Happy ten years to Final Gear. The eight years I have been here I have watched many of you grow up, graduate, the career and kids. Really, this place is my second family. Because of Final Gear I got into photography, became more worldly and less ignorant.

2011 I went through a terrible time with my divorce and before I attempted to commit suicide I came here first hoping someone, anyone would talk me out of it, I needed that little shaft of light in my then very dark world. And you all were there. So Final Gear, you saved a life also over the course of ten years of existence.
