Some very quick phone snaps from the meet. I hadn't checked the forum and thought I was meeting up with @Lacquer Peel in a mutually convenient place to collect some 850 parts he'd bagged from the infamous 'Volvo Jim'.
It was great to catch up with people; I drove @GeordieInExile T5 Auto; I liked @Schaefft's Lincoln; I spoke to @Inspector Morose and @chaseracer in person for the first time in ages.
I will be checking the forum more often from now on - got out of the habit. TL;DR - turned up thinking I was collecting parts, did collect parts, didn't even win 'Best SEAT.' I have nothing AS-friendly running at the moment apart from my 960 saloon; it's not that bad on fuel for what it is at 30mpg and the air-con works but for long-distance work the 70mpg + of my Leon 5F was hard to ignore! I took the parts back to Peterborough that day and will be attempting a revival of the ex - @mk2_craig estate next weekend.
