I have spoken to Lesley Cook who looks after the Hammond Microcar collection in Kent (TN12 postcode - between Headcorn and Staplehurst). The original owners founded the RUMcar register/forum.

I have confirmed that up to 20 cars from us (quirkier the better she says!) will turn up on 12th May 1pm for a tour. The 20 car limit is due to only so much hard standing.

Apparently there is a pub down the road for drink/food afterwards.

This is a private collection, so we can only attend at this time and date unless you make your own separate arrangements.

The charge is £3 a head, which I think is very fair. I will happily play banker (yes, banker) on the day.

The limit is 20 cars, but up to 30-40 people. So please put your username below (and any other forum members who will be in the car with you).

Ooh, yes please.

I don't have access to a quirky car at the moment so if the 20 spaces fill with more interesting vehicles maybe I could park elsewhere and cadge a lift with someone?

would love to make it down :)

 

but is anyone going via East London, because the only way I really see myself making it down is by hitching a lift with someone...

 

(unless by the 12th of May I already have a full driving licence and a Model 70  :mrgreen: )
