made it home safe and in opne piece, many thanks to Eddy for organizing this meet, and lovely to see so  many fine* machines in one place. and i hope that those who braved the weather all had a safe journey home. it was good to meet you all even if we did disappear to the museum and the cafe! Even better to see Eddy again, and looking well to.

 

here are our pics from outside where it was wet (sadly, still cannot plan for the weather....)

A splendid day out. Fortunately the sun burnt through the low cloud. Nice to meet up with people and meet Eddy, a gentleman, and his impressive Caddy. The museum was also very good, deceptive in its size because there was a lot of stuff in it. By the time we emerged hours later a lot of people had already left! Deffo would come again.

 

P.S. The jacking point cover has been found... on the driveway.

Some punters on the way out of the museum weren't sure whether our cars were meant to be exhibits or not and felt that they should have a look at them all just in case.

Oh, here's one for Wobbler - an Invacar was hiding in a corner of the museum (this was the best possible photo of it). Don't misinterpret the sign, it's conventionally powered.

 

Also, it has a steering wheel!

I'll have you know I deliberately and specifically asked the Squire to park the Humber where he did.  There was no possible position that could have been better.  And again, thanks everyone, I'm so glad you all enjoyed it.

Thank you sir. I am sorry to have missed you when I came out the museum. But, rest assured there will be other opportunities for you to ride in it.

An excellent day out despite the changeable weather
Great to meet everyone in such convivial surroundings special thanks to Eddy for welcoming everyone personally and to Squire Dawson for the ride in the Humber I’m still grinning from ear to ear.
I’m not always good in social situations and often try to melt into the background but really enjoyed every conversation today, Thanks again to everyone.

It was good to make it to an Autoshite meet up after about 10 years on the forum. I sat in Conrad's real Mini and found it surprisingly comfortable. I sat in Eddy's Caddy and found it unsurprisingly like a pokey 1970s gentleman's club. I drove an Autoshite bike to a foreign* land, put faces to names and drove a quick very yellow car. Excellent day, thanks Eddy and all who turned up. I took photos of mannequins and a sign as well.

I got to sit in Hooli's Jag too.  It's been too long since I had a Jag, I think it'll have to happen soon...

I saved this space specially for Jo and Kerry, as I knew they were coming by Mini.

I got to sit in the Humber too.  Oh YES!

I really should order myself some HubNut stickers...

Eddyfest 021.jpg

And there we have it.  Bloody good day out there, spoiled only slightly by 1: the rain, and 2: not being able to drive.  I did get to sit in some rather nice cars, and everyone who went round the museum loved it.  Even lunch wasn't bad!  Sorry I had to skip off in the afternoon, but my driver had a Subsequent Engagement.  Never mind, I was ready for an outbreak of peace and quiet by then.

THANK YOU to all who showed up, especially from far and wide.  Those I've met before, great to see you again; those I hadn't, lovely to see you too.
