Eastern, Norfolk - Norfolk May News
A great turnout tonight for the April monthly meet with a couple of old faces returning for a visit thanks Dave and Andy and two new faces in Graham and Mike.  It's always good to see new faces turn up and great to see old friends.  An interesting line up of triumphs too unfortunately I again let the side down as after replacing the gearbox in my 7 once again the SS rear exhaust box decided to part company with the rest of the car due to corrosion around the weld on the pipe to rear silencer joint. » more ...

Hi Folks As usual the first trip out in March for the "Smiffy Spitty" was to the Heart of England meet at Bulkington on Sunday 10th.  The weather was a bit better than last month so there was a better turn out totalling 15 vehicles.
Sunday 17th was our Dalos Day Run planned by ourselves, after filling the "Smiffy Spitty" up with petrol ready for the run the heavens started to open with hailstones so we quickly parked it up and jumped into the XR3i Cabriolet as the roof is a lot more waterproof.  We all met at the Phantom Coach in Coventry ... » more ...

Hiya. I know, I haven't run a report now for a couple of months. That’s really because, nothing much to say. Being cold and damp, the numbers are way down. By that I mean 6 to 8 members at each venue, so a good total, but if you want to know what the latest is, come to the meeting.
Right as I say things are picking up now so we should be out in that garden for meetings soon. The breakfast meetings (first Saturday and third Sunday) at the Woodman really picking up, and ... » more ...

The New Forest Run, 12th May, will start as last year, from Ringwood long stay/lorry park at 10.15 a.m. and finish at the Tank Museum, Bovington, where we will be able to visit the museum at a reduced rate.

The Tank Museum has a no dogs policy on all of their property, this is out of our hands and is a problem we have had to overcome in previous years.
