  1. BMW M3 Competition

    I would never, ever put me' ol' mucker down as a ditherer.................. Big Hug Riz
  2. A new car magazine - by me.

    I'm all for thumbing through a dirty (car) mag.
  3. Goodwood MM 76

    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 )
  4. Post a pic of your car

    The Members parking area was quite well drained, after this years MM and the bitter cold of MM74 I'm lobbying the GRRC to move the MM to May !
  5. New 2nd Hand car time, Signum size

    Not for a long while, the location where we used to meet has long gone, pub pulled down and houses built in its place. We had a few pub visits in Brentwood after that.
  6. New 2nd Hand car time, Signum size

    Aye was a regular visitor at the Essex meets a while back, he lived in Ipswich then.
  7. Goodwood MM 76

    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 ?
  8. F1 Grid Kids

    I do so hope we get to see non binary fluid gender F1 driver grid representatives. There, thats ticked the requisite diversity boxes.
  9. 2018 UK F1 TV schedule

    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.......
  10. F1 Grid Kids

    Words fail me. Give me strength.
  11. 2 perfect Escorts

    Beautiful cars, nice to see examples that are true to the original rather than tricked up versions.
  12. 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.
  13. The Stamford Car Show

    You can't beat a decent Vanden Plas.
  14. iphone 4s help.

    No early buns I'm afraid Mac, all done. Thankyou. Now, about next week.
  15. Porsche Macan 2.0T

    What happened to it Chris ?
