Thanks Dean - does the meet have to be linked to an event though? Obviously, more to do if it is
Would the re-built post fire National Motorcycle Musem ring any bells?

I still reckon Cholomondely castle classic car show would be good.

It`s not too bad to get to Tim and with respect to them it is supposed to be a northerly meeting.
It`s only about 30-40 minutes from the M6 (junction 16) and probably about 20 minutes from the M56 for some people further north.

Assuming I can keep either of my cars running long enough I'm happy to travel anywhere, that said, if the cars current reliability is anything to go by a distance no greater than I could push it would be good (Bristol city centre say!).
Cant see too much of a problem with distance though, the M6 is only an hour and a half from here assuming my right foots in economy mode :lol: :wink:
Sign me up for wherever you end up arranging, and if the cars are both dead on the day I'll bring my coach (dont worry, I'll stick some chevrons on it first!)

Far too many BX's, a bus, an ambulance a few trucks, not enough time and never enough cash...
