  7. April Stow-on-the-Wold meet

    Hi dodge Hope you and the Midlands crew are well. Sound good. Just removed engine for detail and cambelt change. If all back together would be good to have brekky on the 2nd April. Kind regards. Simon.
  8. As last months Stow breakfast meet was quite a success, and seems to be a good central location to plan more, Im putting out the date for the next one as April 2nd..another sunday morning...It would have been the weekend before but thats Mothering Sunday so Im sure there will be those who are busy on that day. If this date proves unsuitable it can be amended to suit the majority but personally I wont be able make any other date until some time in May after this one.. The venue will be the same again, breakfast at Speedwell's Cafe, Chruch St (GL54 1BB postcode), which opens at 9am (car parking in the main market square GL54 1AB postcode). Sam the owner has phoned me to see if anyone who attends is interested in pre-ordering to help speed up the service on the day for us.If this date is suitable, by all means put your name below so I can pre-warn of numbers expected. The main thread in the Oxfordshire forum will be updated (to save any persons complaining about having to read it more than once..)
  9. Really enjoyed it - great to meet some new people, Mrs Lizard also passes on her thanks, some fantastic cars and a lovely place to meet up, hopefully next time we wont cause everyone to get up and leave the first place
  10. Nice fun run out and great turn out , 16 heads counted , thank you Darren for organising this.. Great location , central enough for greater midlands and north London to get to without excessive driving.. The breakfast choices and quality was superb and the walk around to coffee shops after gave variety.. Well worth looking at to repeat..
  11. Lovely morning out, thanks to Trev for the ride. And nice to meet old and new friends!
  12. Well how about that ... two rights can't be wrong ! Even my customer agrees to me having a day off. Thank you Richard.... I am sure youra will do the same , fresh eyes and fingers for Monday ... See you all soon
  13. Dave, you're absolutely right! I shall be shotgun with Trev. :-)
  14. Stow-on-the-Wold Breakfast meet 27 Feb 2017 take a very well earned break from that S3 some layers of skin back up so you can tackle the body. Its no good if the ends of your fingers are the wrong shape for sanding either :-). Have a good trip out. Richard
  15. Uhmm .. Know what you mean but sometimes a break and an inspirational talk from an intellectual bunch will help focus the mind.. Well that's what I told myself.. plus I need a break from the customers S3 turbo I am doing.. or my fingers will go on strike.!! Its about 10 months since I spun the wheels up on my Esprit so I ran out of excuses for not going.... Your trouble is you were drinking to much coffee this week with Trev.. instead of fettling da mota mate. Hope you change your mind and rest for a day, the trip out will do you the world of good.. Nagging over........ is that one sugar or two , i will have it ready for when you arrive..
  16. Chaps, think I have to pull out. This SE C service has become a monster, and I have to crack on.

  23. Stow-on-the-Wold Breakfast meet 27 Feb 2017

    Sorry correction on the date..its sunday the 26th!!
  24. We here in the Midlands group are organizing a little breakfast meet at Stow-on-the-Wold with the last sunday of this month in mind. Its a nice drive out from all directions, parking is a-plenty in the market square (although it can get busy there from about 10am onward if the weather is good) and there is an abundance of good coffee places and breakfast choices. Having visited a few times for breakfast, I would suggest visiting The Coffee House, Church Street which is a couple of minutes walk from parking. Breakfasts are fresh to order and have been consistently excellent each visit. Postcode for parking is GL54 1AB, and The Coffee House is GL54 1BB. I would suggest aiming to be meeting in the Market Square for 9.30 and if I know a number of attendees prior, I can call ahead and see if tables can be reserved for us. Ill copy this post into the London, Midlands and Oxford regions to get a good local coverage. If this turns out to be a date which is unsuitable, by all means please suggest an alternative! If any definite attendees can make it, please drop your name below; 1 Dodge1979 2
