I have a spare bedroom in my portable house! People were sleeping in the bar this year though, would have been ideal, I'm sure you've passed out on a pool table before?

On one,under one and been stuck in a pocket too

 "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

      It's not exactly Autoshite, but an event celebrating cars and popular culture from the 80s and 90s should come close enough! Radwood has been a thing in the states for a year or two now, I've been following it since pretty much the beginning and am quite excited that the first event outside the US is happening here. The premise is pretty simple, bring along your car built from 1980-1999, optionally you can show up in your period correct rad outfit (whatever that might mean to you). Ticket prices are quite affordable, 20 quid if you want to show up in your car (incl. a passenger) or 10 quid without the car.
      I'm currently trying to find out if anyone would like to join. I have the feeling that space for cars might be quite limited, with the show happening in about 4 weeks I'd rather book the tickets earlier than later.  You can find more info in the link below, if you are interest it would be good to see people post here.

      To give you a little idea what previous events looked like:

      So for the first time in over 18 months because of reasons I made it to one of the Wednesday evening gatherings at Earls Barton. Lots of cars there but I do think they need to either rename this event and remove 'classic' or be more selective about what they let in as it was only about 50% classics and the rest were moderns. Loads of Binis, modern Beemers and Audis, Japanese performance motors, slammed VWs and the latest supercars, so I walked straight past a lot of dross to find the occasional gem. In front of the Maxi was a brand new 19-reg Mazda 3 - what the heck was that doing at a show?
      Anyway, pics of some of the good stuff...

      New venue just announced for FOTU 2019 - Saturday 20 July, 10am to 4pm at Claydon House, MK18 2EX (same general area as Stowe). Would make a nice 6-mile jaunt through the north Bucks countryside from the Field of Dreams. Concours applications open in January and general spectator/classic tickets will be available in March. Entry criteria has been widended too and it now says it's open to "unexceptional classics from 1966 to 1996".
