Is there an award for 'crappest car' again? Different BX but I could still well win it! (oh no. Just remembered Mike's coming... )

Excellent :D

I shall wash my car on Fri/Sat then, even though I'm evidently not safe to be let out at the moment ... (think extra in Shaun of the Dead, except I'm not eating people, because that would be wrong)

I'm glad to hear that Sandre, because I own a cricket bat and I'm not afraid to use it. "Remove the head or destroy the brain."

Bloody brilliant film, even before I knew that the lead actress was a former BX owner.

I believe it's a 1pm departure for the Bletchley run. No idea how long it takes but I'll be getting my money's worth!

We probably will go!

BTW if anyone has a sunroof relay they can bring along we'd be all ears.

Have a sunroof deflector and headlight protectors whose fate has not yet been decided, we'll bring those along.
I'll be using the rev counter as a speedo as the speedo cable has gone (shocker :wink: )

Stand in a field full of BXers and shout 'headlamp protectors'!? Ever seen a sausage dropped into a tank full of Pirahnas? It's a similar deal. :shock:

If you really want to do their heads in, get a friend to stand in the next field and shout 'tailblazers' and watch the confusion ...

Yes, it might have been tailblazers I was thinking of! =P~
