Cheshire July News

The last time I went to Cholmondeley Castle was in September 2017 and it was cold, it rained, not many people, and I made a navigational error on the way. This time round it was warm, mostly sunny, loads and loads of people, and I had sorted the route out in advance (the gnat sav likes to take short cuts down little windy roads). Once again the crew from Bolton (or is it Wigan) were present in force, and I met a man from Anglesey called Adrian who has a Corvette, who I have met before at Cholmondeley and Capesthorne. Small world!
  At Capesthorne, it was rather wet. Not too many people turned up, which is not surprising, and the hood stayed up most of the day. I met one or two people from round and about, including Adrian from Anglesey in his Corvette! We have agreed the next meeting is at Tatton. In the afternoon, the weather improved enough to drive home with the hood down.
  Tatton was also a bit damp, more so on the Sunday, but missed out on the torrential downpours that toured the surrounding countryside. The Cast Iron World Vitesse attended on both days, while the GT6 spent Saturday being fixed so it could come along on Sunday. This was worthwhile as the GT6 won a prize! We also saw the man from Crewe and his lady wife (tales of overcooked brakes at Spa), Dave of Snagfordshire, and Roger, to name but a few.
  A small attendance at the C&P for our meeting and run out (I have several notes asking permission for non-attendance), with two more cars already present when we got to the Swettenham. Ford Prefect was also present, but not much else in the ‘Classic Car’ category. I enquired after Zaphod Beeblebrox but had to explain the connection. It was also observed that we travelled a little faster than usual. Some stainless steel changed hands, there was discussion of wind deflectors (making contact with headrests), CV joint conversions (which none of us have), rebuilding type 14 calipers (see ‘overcooked brakes’ above), boot lights, straightening Vitesse boot panels after contact with a tree (think about it) and other things. There was also a splendid sunset but the camera in the phone did not do it justice.
  July events include Wilmslow Show on the 7th, Hale Barns Carnival on the 20th and 21st, Capesthorne on the 21st, and Silverstone Classic on the 26th to 28th.
  Our next meeting is on Thursday 4th July at the Cock and Pheasant. Second run out of the year, so 7:30 for 8. This is likely to be to the Dog in Peover, and we may also get to see a recently acquired TR5.
