    Good to see everyone again after such a long time and some new faces being introduced to the world of Stratos. Big Thanks to Phil for hosting the day. Only 12 days to go to the next event.

    Re: Garage Day 2021

    Yet another ace garage day at Phil's. One day some TV crew or other will turn up and produce a documentary.....it'd be bloody boring tho if you didn't know the people, and after seeing it you'd never come near the SEC

    Some great cars there today! The LB ALBARELLA car, Dave Evans' Martini supercharged Toyo-engined LB, David Jowsey's Allora (that car just keeps on going, doesn't it?) and some weird posing yellow thing that the owner obviously painted that colour simply for attention. Didn't see who it was, cos couldn't find a mirror at Phil's.
    There was also Chris and Jayne's new Alpine A110 looking good, a rather tidy Mk. 2 Escort, and Tim's indefatigable Beta Coupe. And the less said about Phil's Porsche the better...!

    Great crowd of people and some interesting chats about this and that. Think everyone was over the moon with finally being able to get out to a do! Let's see if the enthusiasm can be maintained for David's Yorkshire Drive in a fortnight....well there'll be beer and wine involved, so how can it possibly go wrong?? (let's start a list.)

    So, many, many Thanx to Phil and Helen for letting us all consume their carefully-conserved stash of loo rolls. Much appreciated!

    Many thanks Phil for hosting the day, it was good to catch up with peeps.
    Another one here that forgot to take pictures so hopefully some will appear as if by magic soon.
    Looking forward to the Yorkshire drive in a couple of weeks, I may even have a full compliment of catches securing the bodywork by then

    I’m sorry that we were not able to be with you today, was looking forward to getting out and catching up with you all. i was hoping to show you my little piddlers.

    David, we will be with you in Yorkshire, even if the Crutches that Carol managed to put herself on late on Thursday have to be tied on the roof, unless by then i can get the Hacksaw to them to be able to fit them inside.

    Hope there were some photo’s of today, I’m dying to see evidence of Buttercup!!

    Re: Garage Day 2021

    Great day, great friendly people, and well worth the 3.5hrs from South Wales to sample the fine coffee and huge spread of esquist biscuits!

    Thanks norm, for picking me up at the layby and chauffeuring me to the venue. Your soon to be new car looks great, thanks for letting me sit in it and go vroom, vroom. I hope you get it before Christmas!

    Cheers Phil for welcoming me at short notice, the endless coffee supplies and the use of venue. That garage is amazing, it's got everything. I'm surprised it doesn't have central heating, or does it?

    It was really great to catch up with my old work colleague Tom from many moons ago and introducing me to everybody. Will catch up again soon.

    And lastly the cars, old and new. It was great to actually see them in the flesh and to look at all the intricate details and engineering involved. All cars present are works of art from the decade in which they were built. But with a car as good looking as the stratos you can't really go wrong!
    Shame I didn't get to see a Hawk this time. That would of been nice, as I could of then gone home with a better idea of what's available and what jacket suits me, so to speak! In the meantime, I'll keep on doing my research and see what pops up!

    See you all again soon.
    Justin

    I can report that Buttercup was the yellowest yellow thing I've ever seen. The wheels have gone a funny colour though?

    Big thanks to Phil and Helen, as ever, and to David Jowsey for chauffeuring me down in his Allora Stratos, all the way from Outer Mongolia.
