Re: 18 years and counting.

Well done Mick. I think like you say having it as a toy really helps. Mine sits in the garage now and only comes out at weekends and it feels great to use if I've not driven it for a week or 2. It always brings a grin to my face.
I've only had mine 6 years but have no plans on changing it soon.

Unfortunately I can't help feeling this kind of significant purchase followed by life-long ownership is becoming a thing of the past.

Re: What are your plans for 2017 ?

Probably the biggest one - Make a big effort to get to more meets and fix its. Not collected as many bits as I...

Re: Pride of Longbridge - Co-ordinator needed.

Great, thanks Kev, it shouldn't be a big job, just letting the POL people know how many of us are coming.

We can sort convoys nearer the time.

Pride of Longbridge - Co-ordinator needed.

To save any problems with the club having a stand at POL next year and having to squeeze onto another clubs pitch, would someone like to volunteer to co-ordinate our pitch this year ? For newer members, Pride of Longbridge is the first big meet of the year for all cars built at the Longbridge plant ...

People are supposed to add themselves to the list btw ;)
It is surprising how many people don't though and expect someone else do it.

Suppose it's the way of the world these days :roll:.

Re: NEC Classic Car Show 2017

Coupe seats !

I have 2 in the loft, I suspect others have a few aswell, would be cheaper than hiring.
Make a subframe up and job done.


Aren't we having wing backed armchairs for next year though ? ;)

Re: MOT

Yes, passed no problems, no advisories.

It's the NSF, so it'll get done as and when, it's not used daily so got a few weeks hopefully.
