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

I  think that's something a few of us have done, either knowingly or not.
The first 4 Chumleys I went to I took Italian cars: Lancia Thema, Alfa 155, Lancia Beta HPE,  Lancia Beta Spyder.
Then I broke with the Italian theme and took the tipp-ex painted Toyota Sera.

That is an impressive tradition Eifion! Will the 2CV be ready in time? 

That's looking unlikely, but I hope that my other old Citroen will be. If so I can save the 2CV for next year.

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

It seems that Enter starts an new paragraph with a break.

While Shift and Enter just moves down
on to the next line.

(That works for me, anyway).

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.

This hasn't been an issue anywhere other than on here though, and only since the facelift.

Brother just spoke to me and said this:

"£4.50???!?!?!? It will cost £100 in fuel just to get there!"

I'd say that's a perfect reason to go myself.

You can spend £100 on one seat to watch The Spice Girls so I'd say it's a bargain

I haven't been in the same car twice, although there have been years where I've barely scraped in under the 15 year limit.

From my vague memories, I think they were, Celica Gen 2  Celica Gen 5, Golf Cabrio, Volvo 480,  XR2, 306 DTurbo phase 1, Puma, 306 XSi, Celica Gen 6, Leon Cupra, 306 DTurbo phase 3 and Clio 172.

Not sure what it'll be this time...….

I was going to ask about camping solutions, but if I'm bringing the Invacar and based on my Goodwood experience, SOD THAT.

Based on my 4 nights in an action man tent at the IOM TT Double SOD THAT

The conversation went

do you want to come to the TT for free :D

It's camping :(

It was as bad I as I was expecting , this body isn't cut out for sleeping on the ground

Well, after serious discussion with brownnova, we’ve decided that the fastest camper van in north east Wales will have Pringle butties on board. Also, not just sugarless tea, but possibly coffee. Form an orderly queue please! 

Note: This depends on the camper passing its MOT... Death burger it is then! I’ve seen those sodding sills!

Put me down for one. There’s a chance I may have to be away for work but otherwise I’m game.

Likely steeds are the E30, XJ-S, Accord or VX2300, none of which have been before.  Maybe the Lotus if I feel lucky and can guarantee getting home before dark...or manage to fix the headlight switch.

      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......
