CDM Forum Awards?

Recommended Posts

So, we've all been thoroughly amused, entertained, informed and some times even down-right annoyed with this years postings and, I for one have learned many things- so thanks to all who contribute time from their 'ahem' busy schedules to post.

I was wondering if we could have a bit of fun and nominate people, topics, postings etc for our own Car Dealer Magazine Forum awards along the lines perhaps of the CDM Awards nominations etc?

(Maybe Admin will chime in to come up with a way of voting/collating?) So suggestions for topics please?

My ideas with my nominations:

Best Newbie : Mechanic Dave? 

Best post: I nearly bought an Astra

Most frustrating post: as above.

Most helpful member- Nick MK for dealing with my Screamer

Grumpiest Member- the brilliant BHM or Arfur-have you seen the bloody video- Dealy

Most Annoying Subject- where can I buy stock-I'm new to the game

Oh No Not Again Award: Autoraper conversation

What Do you Mean? Really?....T.V. getting back into the game/getting a site again ;0)

I can't believe I didn't do it earlier..Videos

What Do you Mean? Really? Lucas spending £100k on "anything" related to car dealerships without knowing what he's doing :)

No that was also our misunderstood forum colleague Justin(a) - BHM barks enough without needing a Doberman.

Good idea, I'm pretty sure we can scout the bottom draws in the office to find an old Autotrader mg or something as a prize......

Let me chat to our tech Monkeys and see if we can put something "proper" together on here !

Survey Monkey?

One of my favourites was one from Tradex describing a pitch nearbye keeping stock for years and  some Clio which had been there so long it was used as a marker post.

You don't have to. You are already winning in half the categories. If you were a film at the Oscars you would be the Schindler's List...

Haha I can't disagree at that! I better get more than a cup though, being this stupid takes a lot of effort.

Whatever happened to Betginge,I think he was a sort of angry version of BHM......good value.

What about Green Giant,he gave me some stick,came over as the dealer principle of Jack Barclay but I suspected he was an F and I man at a Skoda dealership.

Rt Honorable Jim Reid,he ‘spit the dummy’with me,I think he went on to better things,probably now advising Elon Musk

More importantly did you?

Another vote for Benji/MrV. Don't think many people would have hung around after all the advice/abuse he got.

Should change your name back though.
