A Goodbye For Now...

It is with great sadness that I announce the retiring of the Shmee150 blog in its current format.

Over the last year the site has received 200,000 hits however do not fear as going forward you will see the same content you have become accustomed to over on the Shmee150 Facebook page. A place that offers better scope for discussion, commenting and interacting all in a simple page that can keep you up to date with the latest content straight to your newsfeed if you wish. Even if you are not a Facebook member you can access the page via the web address www.facebook.com/Shmee150 for public updates as and when you choose.

The Aston Martin One-77 Registry will continue to remain in place and be updated but this will be the final post to the main blog for now however do not fear as yet more exciting things are to come in the future!

Many thanks for all of your support,
