Hi Tim,

I'll probably (but not 100% sure) be just going down for the Sunday, as I did last year.
Probably be setting off at around 5-30/6-00am and travelling down via M62 and A1. It was a good run last year, and I don't really want to hammer it! It will be the first longish trip that I've made since the stroke, so the A1 allows easier breaks etc.
I should arrive on site at around 8-30/9-00am, same as last year.....just in time for some brekkie from some kind soul's Camping stove! :wink:

At least Monica is now MOT'd and sorted for another year!

Dave

Hopefully as the GT was waxiled from new the pipes are still very healthy, its just the oil leak I have to keep a eye on!

Well worth taking anything you want to try selling!
Quite a few people set up a little "stall" behind their car, on a groundsheet or picnic table etc.
IIRC there is no charge for doing this, but I MAY be wrong!
That's one of the best things about these "meets"....a good chance to pick up some obscure bits 'n bobs for your motors, at a generally realistic, cheapish price too. I got a full rear spoiler in immaculate condition (but the wrong colour) for only £4 last year!!

Pile it high....sell it cheap!!! :wink:

I will be looking for a wheel trim (I only have three) but might be tempted to buy a set!

Is that still leaking just as badly as when Adamski had it? If so I imagine everyone else can just follow your oil trail to get there. :mrgreen:
this might be a signature

Thankfully not David, it does leak a bit but not as bad, the rocker cover and distributor gaskets were changed which improved it, but I thnk the main oil seal is dripping, saves me changing the oil though as it does it itself every 3 months. :D
