So far, 9 cars confirmed, 4 possibles, so about the same number we usually have. Should be another great day, especially if the weather is kind. :hopping:

I'll be there - not sure which car yet as it's been a busy few months and I'm seriously behind on car maintenance but I have every faith that I will have at least one working 480 by the 26th!

Ah, sounds SO familiar....

have 3 cars

James is probably going to borrow one, neither of the other 2 have MOT....

Busy times for me (with Zero free time too....)

Might be better if James borrowed one of ours so Jeff is sure of a car. Eva is sitting in a garage with everything except tax, I have Lily and Al has Sven.

Plus James is already a named driver on the policy.

Well it's certainly an incentive to crack on with those mot's Jeff. Just thought a backstop might actually be useful !! :lol:

Sorry you can't make it Norm; I was hoping to catch up again!

We will definitely be there: looking more likely than not we will be in a 480 - just need to see if I can get Nilani through an MOT this week... :?

OK, I surrender. Given that it's practically on our route, we'll leave the Toby at 10 am (James and Rachel, get your skates on !!) and all drop in to have a look at this two-tone. Hopefully we'll have finished demolishing the salesman's hopes in half an hour. Jeff, you are in charge of checking it's unsold and still there. Apologies to peeps joining at Rutland or Tattershall if we end up being late. Rachel, can you let the FB's know new timings and first destination, in case they miss us at the Toby please.
The French club have pulled out all the stops and are despatching a pair of the new rear lenses to me tomorrow, so I SHOULD have them in time to bring to the meet. You can all have a look-see before ordering unless it goes pear-shaped.
Roll on the 26th !!

This is hilarious and a nice little detour. The garage would probably like a picture of their shiny TT with all of us parked up next to it admiring it. 

I quite like the colour combination and the upholstery on the two tone cars. I'll be leaving my cheque book at home though. ‎

I'm still uncertain if my car will be ready for the ‎meet but I should be along in something wedge shaped anyway!

Sylvia, if you manage to get the sample rear lights in time for the meet, I would appreciate some pics if possible and wish I was there when you all turn up to view the two tone :hopping: . Maybe you should turn up in ten minute intervals that would leave the seller scratching his head, have fun all!!

I will certainly take photos for you, Norm, but have you seen this photo of a pair fitted ?

Looks like there is plenty of parking at Autobarn

Sylvia,

Don't suppose you map the route out using Google maps?

If so, we could convert into handy formats for satnav users! (happy to do the technical bit!)
