Aaarrgh - Al's not coming near driving (my) Lily if he rests his hand on the gear-knob; does the linkage no good at all! :rofl:

As for Willow - I know exactly what you mean about the fangs from our Martha, but we're not bringing her because she HATES being in a car and I'm not having her wailing her way around Scotland!!

See you Saturday!

Alan - if you are reading this, which car will you meet us with?

Looking forward to Saturday and catching up with people again!

Best wishes all

David
old red one, still removing suspension parts / bolts etc one at a time and making sure that when the time comes to remove said offending object I'm not presented with 20+ years of corroded bolts etc

and as the red one passed it's MoT at start of August pressure is off until next year, weather is rubbish and don't really need four cars on road, three is enough :wink:

Alan,

I've 2 sets of clocks in the boot of the 940 for your perusal on Saturday! see what one suits you most!

Had hoped that I might find a buyer for my last remaining set of 15" wheels that were coming to the event to save someone on shipping but no takers!

We are leaving this evening, so if anyone needs to contact me please use my mobile. I think everyone coming has the number, if not put a post on here and if I can't get online I'm sure someone will pm it.
Roll on Sarurday ! :hopping: :hopping: :hopping:

Sylvia - Have a good trip - we're heading north tomorrow; see you Saturday!

Alan - that sounds like a very sensible approach... :wink:

We are still hoping to attend.

Still need to refit interior and get an MoT. Work has gotten in the way.

I'd hoped to attend this but can't get a new windscreen for my Turbo and therefore no Mot!
My wife is also away on Saturday climbing a Munro so can't even cadge a lift with someone else.

Definitely next year though 😁

technically no requirement for a windscreen for an MoT, remove screen, remove wipers and wear goggles!!

although with the weather forecast being 'some showers' then maybe not such a good idea :wink:

I'd be sorely tempted to try that, our local Mot tester hates me anyway thanks to all the random rubbish cars that I drag in every year 😂

Well my Dad and I are safely in Scotland care of the very kind Jifflemon who has lent me this car as mine didn't make it out of the body shop in time for the meet! Looking forward to seeing some of you for breakfast.

@ Murph: I did the windowless MOT last year. Goggles are an absolute must and also some tape on the front of the headlining‎. Mine was pretty shagged but having 30mph wind blown at it finished the cloth-to-fibreboard glue off and made it very flappy!

Sorry I wasnt able to make it, work got in the way of finishing the car and getting the MoT.

Probably a good thing as I was called out for work at 6am :cry:

Hope the weather holds out for you all and look forward to seeing some photos.
