I'm sure the geezer from the SC100 club has an old Fronte. I'm sure i remember reading about it, he could not stop it from seizing its engine every few hundred yards. Looked spectaculary cool though.

yeah, that's Tim. He has an early Guigaro styled Fronte with an air cooled triple and a really rough early one like Michiel's pic. I've dug out some pics...

Fantastic thread! I'd heard vaguely about this place, but didn't realise it'd be so mouth wateringly good, and not far from me in Grimsby.

Seth, I did also wonder about some kind of camping thing with the family – we successfully braved the tent this year, so we’d definitely give it a go again next year. Knowing that there wouldn’t just be a dozen blokes talking about Talbot Solaras would help my case…

Tell you what, how about the weekend in August that coincides with the BMC/BL show in Ferry Meadows, Peterborough on the Sunday. Now that would be a shite filled weekend!

I've got very vague memories of seeing Reliant Ants crawling all over Hitchin when I was knee high to a grasshopper. I'm sure they had grey back boxes & red cabs - could councils have used them? For some reason I picture that they were loaded with laundry or clothes sacks. Could just be fuzzy childhood memories with no basis other than their existence though! :oops:

Excellent pictures!I'm liking the idea of a Microcar Shiters Campathon too. Great location, owing to the w.o.m.e.n. syndrome that will inevitably ensue will appease even the most ardent of shite-abhorring spouse.

I can remember reliant ants being used in and around Norwich when i was a nipper. That museum look very interesting, the Suzuki Fronte is really special 8)

That place looks superb! And not too far from Autohausdolby Towers either. Dunno if the missus will stand a visit there though :(
