Hammond Microcar collection - annual open day this Sunday 28th

Recommended Posts

I have spoken to Lesley Cook who looks after the Hammond Microcar collection in Kent (TN12 postcode - between Headcorn and Staplehurst). The original owners founded the RUMcar register/forum.

I have confirmed that up to 20 cars from us (quirkier the better she says!) will turn up on 12th May 1pm for a tour. The 20 car limit is due to only so much hard standing.

Apparently there is a pub down the road for drink/food afterwards.

This is a private collection, so we can only attend at this time and date unless you make your own separate arrangements.

The charge is £3 a head, which I think is very fair. I will happily play banker (yes, banker) on the day.

The limit is 20 cars, but up to 30-40 people. So please put your username below (and any other forum members who will be in the car with you).

would love to make it down :)

 

but is anyone going via East London, because the only way I really see myself making it down is by hitching a lift with someone...

 

(unless by the 12th of May I already have a full driving licence and a Model 70  :mrgreen: )

Will check schedules as Mrs P May be away that weekend so I will be on kid duty. But if not I can nip into East London to collect you. What part are you in?

      I've not been before but apparently it's a bigun.
      If I go I'm happy to look out for unobtainium frogchod bits.

      Any shiters going to the Beaulieu International Autojumble this year? Always an interesting day out even if its mainly overpriced Austin 7 parts. 
       I have generally found that although pickings are slim for 70's/80's/90's shite, that if you do find it it is normally a bargain as it's just shite to the seller and "not for a real classic".  The paddock is always a laugh to see how much someone rekkons they can get for a well polished MG Midget made entirely of Bog, and the Bonhams tent is just funny to see how the upper 3% live.  What are other peoples experiences? 
      I'll be going on the Sunday from Oxford, would be good to meet up with other shiters at the Ale tent

      Its been a while since we last had a meetup of southern shiters, and I wondered if anyone was interested in a late summer gathering?
      A little while back I was over at Littlehampton, on the way I spotted a potential meetup point:
      https://www.brewhouseproject.co.uk/
      Its a barn on the Worthing side of Arundel which is a coffee roast house and brewery, and do food too. Just off the A27, by that weird junction where it seems like two different sets of civil engineers approached the same spot from opposite directions, with wildly different ideas about what the road layout was going to be like and made a rather hasty compromise?
      There appears to be a decent sized car park too?
      Maybe one saturday or sunday in September, but not the 28th and 29th? Any takers?
