 "Attempted murder by AX" 

That is ace!

It does however show that I need to lose a bit of weight so it doesn't lean over slightly to the drivers side when I'm in it.

Nope, he's just happy to be driving his AX.  I also drove his AX and was also grinning like a loon the whole time.

I'm slightly jealous as it must have been a bit faster for you, seeing as though you probably weigh half what I do.

It looks like I missed a good one this year, I always end up kicking myself afterwards. I need to start getting more involved again, lifes taken over a little and the mojo has took a bit of a hit but hopefully now I've moved and getting a bit more sorted things will improve again.

 

We definitely need a SF a bit closer to the south east again though!

For those who dont know, I lost my house keys this weekend.

Doing that prompted pub time.

And also this.

Sometimes, I hate being me. 😂😂

JohnK slept in his car outside my house last night.  I did offer him my sofa, but he insisted the Audi would be comfier.  I made him a cup of tea last night and this morning though.

And you've just found his keys down the side of the seat in the proton...

Nah, he lost them before he ever got in the Proton.  He'd turned around to go home and look for them which was when the bird flew into his A8 and smashed the window.

I still think they'll turn up,but I don't suppose it matters now.  I don't know how he does it, bless him.

We tried that last year and only 2 of us made it (but we met 3 more on the way)
 
Has anyone found my Bottom Trump cards?  The kids reminded me that we didn't have them halfway home.
I think I put them in the Pleasure Wagon to stop them from blowing away in the wind.

A great weekend, I only got home last night after 520 miles trouble free in the DS including a spell acting as a boat on the M4. The reason for my delayed return is I now have a replacement cylinder head for the Gamma.

 

Thanks Scotland for the plain bread, I nearly left it in the fridge but went back Monday morning to reclaim it and fortunately Kirton was there.

 

Thank you Kirton for the inspiration of choosing the venue and in the confidence that you showed that you would still be able to live in the village afterwards!

Go for it man. I got my old one back last week thanks to bobthebeard from here swapping it with his previously owned Saab,  I spent today cleaning it. Out of all the cars I've had it's the first one I've taken back on after selling. Terrific cars

      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.

      Anyone else going? UKSaabs is having a show there again this year, so do stop by and say hello.
      One of the advantages of having a stand is you get a code so your club members can get a discount on admission prices on the Saturday and Sunday. Not a huge amount of saving but anything is welcome. They insist that only members can get the discount code, but as you lot are all* members of UKSaabs if you want the code, drop me a PM and it will come back by return.

      Thought we'd try and get a Sunday afternoon meet in before the clocks go back.

      Usual Cafe on the A249 northbound. I think it has changed it's name again when I went past this week, so no website link for now (was Mickey's Rock Café and then Bangers Diner).

      Note your interest here.
