If anyone is concerned about the weather/snow for this event, then assuming you travel most of the route by motorway, then you'll have no problem getting to the gates of the museum, and the internal roads are normally cleared by a Defender with a snow plough. I'm not sure if they clear the whole car park though.

If i happen down that way i might go and investigate the car park :D

Not sure which route I'll take yet. Mainly motorway is a massive detour. Will probably go A44 to Worcester, then cross-country so a heads-up about conditions will be handy nearer the time. I'll be in the TXD as the Green Tiger lacks winter tyres and needs a caliper.

If anyone does have a bonnet catch, I'd be delighted to take it off your hands.

Not judging by the multitude of Golfs we have here. Though they walk all over the BMW's!


If its a choice of which car to have damaged by a plum, company v's bx, I'd go for company!
