The annual Chumley meet up is but a mere 2 1/2 months away...
Last years line up...
Chumley always brings highlights like the year we pushed Huggy into the ring!
And happy shiters from the many corners of the UK congregating for fun and chod related chatting!
Anywho, reminiscing over...
The facts are as follows:
The festival of 1000 classic cars at Chlomondoley castle in Cheshire Sunday September 1st.
The Autoshambles club will once again be represented. Tickets bought as part of the ‘club’ display are £4.50. I am happy to sort out tickets again this year.

And linky back to last years thread:
So to the second of the weekend's shows. Stony Stratford is only 5 miles from Yardley Gobion so a lot of the same cars turned up but there was still plenty else to see, if not quite as manically busy as the New Year's Day event in the same place. Zel has already covered this event in his thread so I'll try to avoid duplicating his photos.

Myself, the good lady and of course Daisy-Vera shall be in attendance Friday/Saturday/Sunday.

All Citroen owners welcome, club members or not!
It's been a busy weekend for the Maxi with local shows both yesterday and today. Yesterday we decided to take a look at this free event in the village of Yardley Gobion (between Milton Keynes and Northampton) that we'd never been to before. A great turnout of cars to suit every taste but it was bloody hot!
Like Mrs6C's tractor of win, but yellow

Since this year is almost over, it's time to make plans for next year.
A sizeable AS delegation attended the inaugural event in 2016. Expected to be some half arsed giffer show, to everyone's surprise it turned out to be a superb spectacle with lots of noise, fumes and yes, speed. A return visit to the 2017 event proved to be not less satisfying. For this year, the event was not held in the town of Bromyard, it was integrated with the Shelsley Walsh hill climb, so we skipped it. But next year it'll return to Bromyard and thus we all should go again.
