Chumley always brings highlights like the year we pushed Huggy into the ring!

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... 

Who’s in?

Forwarded details to Brother Fumbler to see if he wants to take P38 to the Autoshite stand. "Solid Maybe" right now. Hopefully the deadlines will help him make a decision.

About bloody time you posted on here, missus ;)

Welcome to Autoshite. 

Thanking you. I’m learning. I keep randomly clicking stuff and getting lost (I’m far better with cars than computers), so Brownnova is having to give me an idiot’s guide 😂

Am I tea ladying it in the camper van again? If I am and you’re lucky I might even splash out and get some chocolate hobnobs! 

That all depends if we can get the camper through another MoT! Glad to hear you’re coming too 😎

No camping at the site but if I can come then you can crash at mine about an hour and a half further south.

Yes I'm coming, in a car this time instead of as a passenger hopefully. Civic perhaps.

I still have the banner and I've decided to keep it, so it'll be there.

That's a fair shout, might take you up on that then we drive up together or something. Was going to see if CHris posts up and ask if I could share a lift, still might...

Fuck it, I'll be in too, few months to save up for petrol yet, should get paid for a job next week too so I'll have money for the ticket

Only 2hr30 on the motorway or 3hr15 back roads. Also they take any car pre 2004 as a classic, so my Boxster would be eligible. Could take the MGB of course but being a Sunday it'd be a same day job. That sort of journey would be rather exhausting to do it in a day in the BGT. Also the Boxster is quite a bit shiner...

I'd love to be doing it in the 1100 and I'd love to have it done by then. However progress has slowed a fair bit recently and probably unlikely to be finished by then. :(

I'll check with Mrs SiC that we aren't already booked for something on that day, but hopefully it'll be a yes from me.

I'm heading to Somerset in the Invacar a few days after this event, so makes sense to drive it further north first.

EDIT - what is with the daft line-spacing on this site at the moment?!

As I've mentioned before, modern computer based things tend to give you a double return for anything. If you want a simple one line return, use shift+return.

If brother doesn't buy a ticket, I will and I'll pay for 8% of his fuel.

I hope to maintain my tradition of having turned up in a different car each time I've been to this.

      This years NEC Classic Motor show November 8-10 is almost with us.
      Who is going?
      Myself and No1 son are looking at going Saturday 9th, I haven't been for about 9 years.

      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......

      If I go I'm happy to look out for unobtainium frogchod bits.
