I'm now off for this weekend, but I'll probably only get there if the weather's really crap, because you've no idea how much welding I've got on the Visal Diesel at the moment!

Doesn't look too bad. At least there aren't any tornadoes forecast. Yet. :)

Another good rally, some bargains to be had! picked up hydraflush, LHM and filters plus 4 steels for the RD with great tyres.

BX numbers were poor, I only counted 4, inc Leos prize winning 16v which scouped best working classic!

Good to see Ray Fenwick, mark, paul and mulley.

Amazed Richard from keithley had the balls to show up after the amount of people he's annoyed...,

Anyway shame about the weather!

I'm still here!! About to have another beer and watch Cannonball Run on the caravan's entertainment system. A superb weekend, despite the slightly inclement weather. Looking forward to the National. :-)

I am beginning to like Richard from Keithley. But then I think I am ignorant of what he has done. Unless it was the leather seat guy. Sorry, anarchic tendances sneaking out, there. Out the in door and all that :D .

Glad those that tolerated the weather enjoyed themselves. My bud who lives at Horrogate calls it Wetterby, he should know, Harrogate is not exactly San Pedro de Atacoma either.

Basically Alan, he sold some BX parts on eBay, took payment, then disappeared and didnt post them out or respond to peoples collection request (myself included) also some of the cars he has sold on have been not as good as they looked up top.

Shifty bloke!

Let's hope he hasn't seen this - he might be tempted to phone a solicitor lol


Nice to see some pics of the event. I love that 16v (but I guess I'm not alone in feeling that) but my fave has to be the GS. A beauty.

Its the truth Phil...I have no issues with him as a person as he has saved some cars over the years but the way he has conducted his eBay activity etc was poor.

Yes Leo's 16v is a beauty and really coming on, since the X Rally its had the wheels and bumpers painted and before long could be an outright concours winner.
