Six Cylinders Motoring Notes - FoD opening 2/3 July it's Go!

Yesterday  we were informed our container had finally been separated from the tree that had spent 20 years growing round its chassis. We went to check it over and our vehicle of choice including some motorway running was our Ami. No not an electric one but the powerful 602cc Twin!

The Ami tried to look tuff in the lorry park and tow the container home, but no progress was made!

Shelves to display our fine china collection!

Blue porcelain? I’ve just been reading John Le carre’s last novel where it plays a role. Not his best but he was on his way out I suppose.

Decision Made, Sunshine will be provided! FoD opening 14/15 May.

I have been debating as to weather I should open the FoD for the 14/15 May as well as the 4/5 June and having seen the weather forecast I will open both dates. The proposed patronage seemed to be slit with no obvious all can make it weekend.

As soon as I told Eva that I wanted to get the tent up she asked about sleeping over... I'm not sure though, could do 🤔

@Slowsilver will the grass be cut by then? I could pitch up at the end of the field in the Vauxhall suite

Or granny can have them to sleep over and I can nip out to get some beers and sleep on my own 😂

The tent wants to come out before shitefest anyhow, the last time I saw it was in Devon and that was a while ago now. Canvas gets stored in the house though so I'm not too worried

I should be along for this Saturday, just for the day though. 

This weekend I bagged a load of Scaletric via a local free cycle, is there any interest on a FoD model race track? Have yet to work out what’s all there but there should be enough for a working set-up!

June date is a possible for me. Might be a good time for me to work out if I can sleep in an MX-5. 

 

I'll put a strong "would not recommend" in that box. Shorter footwell in the passenger side puts your legs in a funny place. Non-adjustable steering wheel means you can't move around in the driver's side. I have tried...

In fact I'm so anti-MX5-sleepage I'm bringing a 50 year old Land Rover for (get this) more comfort!

I thought it was just me! My son had an MX5 a year or two ago and I was surprised that my 5'9" would not fit comfortably in the passenger seat.  Driving it was a bit more comfortable. We measured the legroom each side and found the passenger side to be about 6" shorter.

I believe the ECU is fixed in front of the passenger footwell, between the BIW and the carpet/false floor. I never noticed, until my mate drove my car and I had a double take as I got in the passenger seat!
