Hi all. Great morning meet as always. Thanks for organising @ChrisJ . Decent breakfast and chat with you all. 
 

I took a short video as a few of us left.

Good turnout, and nice to be eating inside at Essendon again.

I did take a couple of photos this month.

Good news is that I found my keys, as someone suggested they had slipped inside the liner of my pocket - but had worked their way around the side, so when I checked the pocket area, they weren't there, and I couldn't feel them when sitting down.. The reason I found them is that when I got home the spare key for my wife's car had also "gone missing".

Next month were are at Dave & Megan's for a BBQ - I'll send an update via the PM later - as I'm just off out again.

Many thanks Chris for organising, and great to hear your keys were hiding in the lining - a most intriguing mystery!

Only my second TLF meet, so great to see some faces (and cars) from the last North Weald visit and some new ones (to me!). Will check our calendar for the August bank holiday, and if I don't see you there then will catch up at the next breakfast meet.

Great photos

Glad that yours started - It's normally the turbos that give problems hot starting.

It's good to see that M100s are regularly coming to the meetings. I think that this is the 3rd one running where we've had at least 3 turn up.

That’s 30 mins I’m never gonna get back looking for them. 😂

Glad you found them. I hope the wife gave you the bollocking you so rightly deserve. Xx

Yes, I don't know what I did getting out of the car upon arrival, but after my two failed start attempts I found the throttle pedal was stuck flat to the floor... As soon as I kicked that and it spring back up, fired up instantly as always :-). Something that's never happened before so far so I shall know for next time!

Loose carpet? It's a known potential problem in Excels with the throttle pedal being caught by the carpet.

I find the HC engine in my Excel is way better at hot starting that the LC one in my Esprit, so I never worry about it, whereas in the Esprit it can be a bit of a turning over the engine for while.
