  1. Re: Chairman's (Christmas) Rant - December 2019

    Ya know, Guy, that's actually not a bad idea. Tim, can you just float it past the relevant LMC peeps and see what they say, in a sort of fact-finding kinda way? All we'd be looking to do is turn up...
  2. Re: Chairman's (Christmas) Rant - December 2019

    In some ways it is indeed unfortunate that the cost of a good Strat rep is heading the way they are. But this is what happens when the market wakes up and twigs what's been there for a while, staring...

    Re: Calendar 2020 - still need photos !

    It's just me, innit....out of all the calendars produced, I got the duff one. You'd think I'd be used to this sort of thing by now.... I had a motorbike engine rebuilt, new custom-made valves and...

    Regarding the points above on AGM locations - I'm not advocating always having them in one place. So some years it might be further north, some years further south. That way you might get some who...

    Come on Pete, that pic of Jim's is obviously staged - everyone knows I wear glasses. But I need to speak to Mark anyway so we'll sort the calendar thing...no rush, got till October :)

    Gordon, every time I've seen your car I've been amazed at the attention to detail and quality of build. And it's never anything less that totally immaculate, effectively a new car! Do they not allow...

    You won't be needing one of those, then, will ya, Griff? :-P

    John, for my own sanity, I'm assuming you're being deliberately obtuse...if you ask what "obtuse" means, my assumption's waaaay out :)

    That, Griff, is precisely the point I've been trying to make in my Rant posts - that, and the fact that others, as John says above, are now considering "replicas" instead of a genuine car. Doesn't...

    You can't afford it, Leigh... in fact if all the club members got together to make a group buy, we probably still couldn't afford it :)

    Nah, don't think you need to worry, Robin. I think they "styled" it on the day Elon gave out the new rulers. I was, actually, amazed they managed to get the wheels circular and not like a giant-size...

    That sounds like Martin Crikey's car - he lives not a million miles away from where you saw it. Maybe giving the August Kielder Run a go now the floods have subsided :)
