Mahoosive autojumble cancelled. ..Something different instead.

Recommended Posts

I thought I'd add the poster, 250 stalls does sound like a lot...

 

I wonder if there will be anyone selling Norev diecast :-)?

Hi,

 

I'm still looking for the Rancho bulkhead spotlights. 

 

If you could keep an eye out that'd be grand.

 

Thanks in advance.

I’m sorted for spotlights (sorry I didn’t turn out to have decent spare spares for you Holbeck) but some Rancho sill repair panels or roof rack tubes would go down a treat.

 

In fact any Rancho bits, really, except wheels. Got wheels.

 

 

Oh, and a Renault 16 brake light switch please.

 

Thanks!

That sounds interesting. I could do with a pair of front wings for my DS and I'm off work that week.

Last one I went to had plenty of good used DS wings. There was one stall displaying new wings, doors, bonnets, looked like you could build a whole DS from what they were showing. They could well be at this event.

What's the part number on the R16 switch ?  Not sure on Rancho bits, but if I spot a Rancho specific dealer I'll get their details.

Don’t worry about the R16 brake pedal switch, thanks, when I looked for part numbers it turns out they’re readily available from Franzose.de. But contact details for a Rancho specialist would be A-MAZE-ING.

 

If you go, that is - no obligation obvs. You’re a gent for offering.

Still looking for round triangley roof light ?

 

I do indeed. This time hopefully myself.

 

On a different note, since the R16 may* be fully occupied, I had concerns regarding available space for hauling stuff back in sufficient quantities,

such as doors, wings, wine, Gauloises and most of all, warped French plastic in daft colours,

until Ghosty came up with the solution - why not borrow the roofrack I flogged to fellow R16 brother in arms Crooner of this parish.

 

Thank you, Ghosty.

 

However, I wouldn't be a true GGG member, if I didn't say that we will acquire a roofrack at the venue, should the requirement arise.

 

For the uninitiated not living in the parallel universe of R16 ownership, due to it's roof design and lack of gutters, only a bespoke R16 roofrack can be utilised.

On yet another unrelated note, visiting autojumbles is only fun if you buy parts for cars you don't own.

 

No truer words have ever been spoken typed.

 

On an unrelated* note, anyone wants some W123 Merc or Aussie Leyland bits?

Sodding hell I'm a dolt! It just didn't register!!!! Now working out if I have munchkin or not - so how much place I'll have in the car!!!!

Sorry for stupidity (and fatigue I have to say - this heat I'm getting a couple of hours a night at the minute....)

 

Shall be there with bells on.... thanks for the heads up.

 

EDIT - If anyone can't make it and I can snaffle anything - they can sit with me in Brussels until I come over to UK next time via Eurostar - they're getting used to me lugging parts back n forth.....

If anything Cit CX S2-related shows up, I'm interested. Particularly the triple LCD display that sits above the centre console. Also an offside bi-optic headlamp with clean internal reflectors (yes I know it'll be LHD, but it's the reflectors I'm interested in, not the outer lens)....

I've found DFDS from newhaven to dieppe to be the best service to that area. Roughly five hours crossing time.

 

We'll deliver you to that ferry, drive to Dover, take the ferry to Calais and drive down to pick you up from that ferry.

17/09 - Depart bright and early to do some shopping, try to catch the 14:00 ferry. After crossing, hoon oop narf, drink.

 

Questions?

      Are any other shitters going to this? I’ve got a ticket booked and based on the emails I’ve had since it’s still going ahead. I’ve not been to many shows before and haven’t had the best experiences when I have, so it’d be great to see some people and cars from here there.

      With the advent of this pesky virus I for one have been missing things such as car shows, Cannock chod-fests and random meet ups.
      Employing my crystal ball I’m hoping that maybe, just maybe, Chumley will be on as the date is mid September. If kids can go back ‘safely’ to a school full of kids then I’m sure an outdoor car show will be fine. Fingers crossed.
      For the new and uninitiated, Chumley Castle car show is a staple of the AS calendar where we bring down the tone of a proper car show by entering rusty Renault 4s, deteriorating Dacias and crumbling Cadillacs (being literally pushed) into the show ring.  The commentator makes for hilarious listening, although we’re usually placed so far away from the ring we can’t hear him.
       Any way who’s in for Chumley this year... if it goes ahead?

      I have mentioned this to a few shiters over the year and there seems to be some interest so I thought I would make it happen. It also gets the date into the AS Calendar before anything else gets organised for the same weekend.
      The location is half way between Lemans and Tours in Sarthe, Pays de Loire, France, approx 300 miles and 5 hours from Calais, or 120 miles and 2.5 hours from Caen. The date of 3-5 July is the Lemans Classic weekend, where there are great cars on track (where else will you see pre-war Bentleys power sliding and GT40s with glowing brake discs at night) and the car park is probably the biggest and best classic car show in Europe. The AS site is about 25 mins drive from the circuit, with easy access.
      The format is basically whatever you want it to be. The AS base will be at my place in France that a few shiters have visited. I am afraid the bedrooms are already booked, but there is 6 acres of level camping ground,  We will be travelling down from West Sussex via the tunnel and a combination of peage and back roads in a convoy of classics. You are welcome to join the convoy at any point or meet at the venue. We will travel down probably Thursday 2nd and most will return Monday 6th, but some will stay on for a week or two and you are welcome to stay on if you wish. The nearest bar is about 1km away, but 3km away is the famous "Hotel de France" in La Chatre sur le Loir (google it). You do not have to attend the Lemans Classic, if you would rather sit and drink beer (hopefully in the sun) that is fine.
      It will be up to the individuals to organise ferry/tunnel etc and getting there, I can provide camping ground, bogs, showers and a fridge for the beer. No commitment required especially at this stage, If you fancy a foreign trip with your chod, put your name down on the list. Nearer the time those still interested will get further details and the hidden location by PM. If anyone would prefer a B&B obviously they are in high demand around the classic, but I have a few contacts and could possibly find a room or two, but they would need to be booked fairly soon. No booking for camping is required.
      To give you an idea, whilst nothing is yet confirmed, the convoy down is likely to include a Gordon Keeble, a Rolls Royce 20/25, a Westfield, a Mk2 Jag and a Fiesta 1100. It will not be a fast convoy......
      Oooh La La, I'll help destroy the French wine lake

      It didn't happen last year because I wasn't fit enough.  This year, and on the wave of having done Inverness for Christmas, I'm feeling up to a south-coast trip again.  This of course means there will be the usual Shiters' lunch meet at the burger van on Portsdown Hill, most likely on Wednesday May 13th.  I'll be in the wheelchair bus, sorry; MrsR has vetoed taking Hairy Pussy even before I've got it home.
      We will also be stopping each way at a Travelodge or Premier Inn somewhere in the Midlands, so there might be an opportunity for a Midlands Massiv Meet too.  Or even two of them!  It worked well enough at Cumbernauld!

      Yo! I've been nominated (many times) to organise a shitefest next year, considering i can't even organise my own life then this could be a challenge but I'm happy to try and arrange something if there enough interest?.
      I've made enquiries at the Rose pub where we hold our East Coast Retro car meets on in Shotley near Ipswich, Suffolk (IP9 1NL) and she's more than happy for us to use the field over weekend for £5 per person per night if sleeping over, there are toilet facilities and the pub does good grub plus they have a large room for us to have a meal or maybe a quiz on the Saturday night?.
      I've also spoken to a friend who's a volunteer at the Ipswich Transport Museum and even though the museum is closed to the public on a Saturday he can't see no reason why we can't have the museum to ourselves for a private tour around and even the possibility of a bus ride on one of their historic buses which I'm sure a few on here would really enjoy.
      Now it's obviously early days yet but what i need to know roughly is how many of you shitters be interested in this and i need to give the pub a date as their field is getting booked up so that we can secure for our chosen weekend.
