Manc May News

Please note that our area meeting venue from April onwards to The Swettenham Arms (meet in car park) Swettenham Lane, Swettenham, Congleton, CW12 2LF from 7pm onwards.
Not had many weekend free to arrange runs out as birthdays, AGM and general life stuff got in the way, but May is looking like a good month to kick start our monthly events off. A few of our member attended the "On Wheels" car and bike monthly meet at the Houldsworth Pub in Reddish, good variety of classics , hotrods, bikes and scooters turned up and had a great chin wag, looks like we will try and attend this local get together throughout the spring/summer and autumn months. 
As we can't arrange a run on National Drive it Day due to a birthday do, we will be arranging a drive out to the Veterans Garage Cars and Coffee meet at there May event and then onto a drive and meal for sunday lunch, details will be on our Facebook page.
With this years main TSSC Event (Inter club TSSC & TR Register) being held at Stratford Upon Avon racecourse on 16th to18th August 2019, a few of our area will be attending this event and will try and get more from Manchester to support  this event.  There are plenty of B&Bs/Hotels in the area for those who dont camp, booking for this is in this courier magazine, also dont forget to support other local area events if you can.  
Update on our members cars, Paul has his Spitfire now mounted on a rollover jig and removed 40 years of underseal and crud from the underside, revealing a very well preserved bare metal to work with. He has also fitted a hydraulic lift kit to his bonnet. Monty has had all sorts of delays in getting his new roof and frame fitted to his Bonde Equipe , so he has decided to undertake the work himself, he created his own press stud tool out of some old mole grips welded together with a center punch. Ive finally got my Vitesse 2ltr's engine running , first time its started in 30 years, cleaned all the tar out of the carbs, fitted new diaphrams and seals, new oil and water, new Accuspark ignition and it started first time and ran really smooth. now jacked in the air and have brakes reconditioned all around, as everything is seized. replacing the caliper piston and boots was a right pain and took hours, but now finally done and caliper painted and reinstalled, need to do rear hubs now.
Our April meeting was held at The Joshua Bradley in Hyde, however for our May meeting we will be holding it at The Swettenham Arms (meet in car park) Swettenham Lane, Swettenham, Congleton, CW12 2LF, as every tuesday during Spring, summer and autumn they have a classic car gathering, we attended it last year and really liked it, so decided to hold our monthly meeting there as theres loads of cars there, everybody make there own way there and try to get there as early as possible to make the most of the late evenings.
In Stockport's old market there is a newly opened Produce Hall which is similar to the one in Altrincham, lots and food and drinks counters , so we will be holding a social evening night out there to check it out, date to be set on our Facebook page.
