  1. It was cold beyond description, the coldest car event I've ever attended, bleak does not even come close. Numbers had increased but hopefully the traditional weather will put many of the 'fellowship' members off in coming years.....

    We have decided to go to this years FoS as the GRRC now have their own enclosure and facilities with access to parts of the event not open to the general public (as well as dedicated GRRC parking +++)


  2. As usual we will be there for the whole weekend, it will interesting though as the GRRC has 'encouraged' more 'revenue take' by introducing a level of membership so that more people will attend on what is normally an event with strictly controlled numbers.

    One reason why we stopped attending the FoS was the sheer onslaught of huge numbers that took away the essence of what it represented. 

    If the numbers increase to such a level at MM76 then we will rethink attending in the future.

    Anyway - anyone else going.

    Steve ?

    Bazza?

    Wopps ?


  3. I do so hope we get to see non binary fluid gender F1 driver grid representatives.

    There, thats ticked the requisite diversity boxes.

     

     


  4. I enjoy F1 but I will never fill the dirty diggers pockets, I just dislike the principle of the pay per view TV concept -  I'm too old fashioned.

    So for me F1 will soon be a thing of the past. I will miss it.

    I will focus on attending race meetings and enjoy the thrill of live racing be it amateur or professional, classic or historic. The historic F1 at Monaco this year is our first stop.

    That and the WRC.......

     

     

     


  5. I have about 40+.

    2 part, a base and separate top cover.

    All clean, no scratches or damage. UV resistant.

    They once housed part of my 1/18th discast model car collection but I now have a custom built display case and so they are no longer needed.

    On fleabay they are going for around £7-£9 each, I'm after £4.50 each, P&P depending on number but quite reasonable I'm sure.

    Went to the 14th annual car show on The Meadow today.

     

    They had the usual suspects at the show, plenty of old English cars, the odd E-Type, plenty of XJSs (love them!!), just the one BMW 635 CSI, many Ferraris, the 2 Maseratis, etc.

    A Merc forum group turned up too, there was a fantastic old Merc Coupe with newer internals like a straight six turbo, 5 spd auto box and slammed, but looked damn fine.

    In another area were these 2.

    Beauty and the Beast....

    Why does this forum twist my pictures?  :roflmao:

    You can't beat a decent Vanden Plas.


  7. I have an old iphone 4s, the SIM card is gone.

    However I have loads of pictures on the phone that I cannot download and remove from the phone. When I connect it to a PC it finds the iphone but no images.

    How can I get them off the phone ?


  8. The guy selling the car sits behind me and is not a regular visitor to TSN, his local dealer recommended he have the chains and DMF changed as a precaution, so he did. More than likely a bit of salesmanship by the dealer rather than being required.

    He has also asked that if any anyone has questions about the car then please call him direct.

    I'm gonna hit him later with joining TSN.

    Whilst I'm not a lover of the Mk V R32, this one is a gem and totally unmodified, so hopefully should find a home.
