Since having had all my personal details culled from numerous and dispirate websites around the world, and collated into one nice, neat little package, and posted on a purile and hate-filled anti-McCann website, I am now understandably cautious about posting my personal life anywhere on the internet, even on my own site!

So I will keep it simple. I am 56 years old, married, with three children and two grandchildren. I have spent most of my working life in the aviation industry, and now work for the British army as a technician on their new Apache attack helicoptor.

My hobbies include hotrodding and customising old cars, to make them look better and go faster, playing computer games, and sci-fi. I am a big ‘Star Trek’ fan, but in my opinion the best TV series, of any genre, is the remade ‘Battlestar Galactica’. Favourite films are ‘Blazing Saddles’, ‘Pearl Harbour’ and more receintly, ‘Avatar.’ Musically I am a bit of an old headbanger, liking Meatloaf, Deep Purple, Status Quo, Iron Maiden and Linkin Park, but in my collection you will also find Pink Floyd, Fleetwood Mac, ZZ Top, a great many rock ‘n’ roll artists, the Monkee’s and even some Glenn Miller!

I have never been much for solving mysteries, being more of a ‘do-er’ than a ‘thinker’ and I still cannot grasp why this particular little girl has gotton so deeply under my skin!

Below is a pic of my 220bhp, Rover V8 powered 1965 Ford Zodiac, taken last summer. The paintwork was still ‘work-in-progress!’ I hope to have it more presentable this summer, when it will become my only means of transport. I don’t like modern cars! My youngest daughter is keen to follow in my footsteps, and I take her to many car shows throughout the summer, and she now helps me when working on the Zody, passing the spanners! We are currently building a 1/4 scale fully working plastic model of a Dodge Hemi V8 engine, which we are both greatly enjoying!

And THIS is what I want to build one day!!

    Blimey Nigel. Youre much more goodlooking than I imagined, and younger. I thought youd be more like um.. er. .. Ian McKellern (Gandalf). Still, nice to ‘meet’ you as such. Just got hubby up to have a look at your pic. He smiled at me for being so daft. Im 55 and plump. Like Bob Dylan, ans you may have guessed. I ADORE the Strawbs, whom I have met 3 times now. Fantastic band, lovely manners. Poetic, artistic and extremely gifted, all of them. I like Neil Young; my husbands a Deadhead! Ive lately taken a liking to Damien Rice. I love art, photography, modelmaking. Im not just a religious person. I like nature and love animals. Im a vege. Thats about it really. Anyway, nice to meet you Nigel. Hope your site is beneficial to Kate and Gerry, and lets hope something useful and helpful to Madeleines Happy Destiny materialises very soon. God Bless her. Regards, m x

    Hi Vee

    I have just been riding about in that V8 thing, how do people see out of the windscreen? It is like looking through a pillar box!
    I must say you are not at all like I imagined you to be and you do scrub up well it has to be said!
    By the way can I have my lamp back please and who put a fluffy skirt on it?
    I would show you a pic of myself only like you, I do not want to drop into the vipers den!
    You got me thinking, wasn’t there a Triumph V8? Really fast car!

    Rosie x

  6. Rosiepops Says:

    Or was it a V 10? Duh I dunno! lol

  7. Nigel Nessling Says:

    Hi Rosie, you’re too kind! You can have the lamp back anytime, just pop round! Yes, truimph DID make a V8, it was only fitted to the Triumph Stag sports car, and was not generally successful, being prone to overheating and warping the heads.

    • Nigel Nessling Says:

      Thank you for your prompt response to my request. Your quick action is much appreciated. I have e-mailed you with my contact details. Experience has shown how dangerous it is to put my details up in public.

    Great forum – nigelnessling.wordpress.com, how did you promote your forum so good ?

    This is a nice community but I struggled to find a good category for this.

    I think this is the right category, but feel free to move this post if its in the wrong place

    I spent forever looking on google, until I found this community – its quite small but looks fun to talk to.


    Use [url=http://directory-submitter.ftphost.net]directory submitter[/url] to make real traffic to your site. And earn a steady income with it!

  21. Pedro Silva Says:

    Please, I urge to everyone, please, to take a look at this site, join to the forum, and help: http://www.FindAdji.com
    If any of you sees him, please contact immediately 1-800-CRIME-TV
    he is a disabled missing child. Thank you. Please continue to show support to the McCann family, please. continue to pray for sweet Madeleine McCann´s safe return, please, continue to spread posters of her, plesse, continue to donate, please, but t-shirts and wristbands of hope and other articles which can be found at the official site: http://www.findmadeleine.com
    If you see her, make noise, make a scene, ask her full name, show a poster or photo of her parents and ask her the names of her parents, of her twins, pay attention to the license plate of car, license plate of a bike, take a photo without being noticed, call authorities without being noticed by those who are with her. She is still somewhere out there waiting to be found, waiting to be returned to her parents where she really belongs. Do the same about all missing children worldwide. Thank you.
