the day started nice and early for me.....up at 6.00 to wash the car ......nipped down to lakeside tescos to get some petrol........parked up in the sunshine to dry the car down,then waited for a call from Dave (ralph Wiggum) to say they had got through the Dartford tunnel,had previously arranged for him and pete (tyreman) to call me then pootle along till i caught up ........well i was doing 70 then a tad more the a tad tad more then a very big tad more.....by this time i got a bit worried as i was about at the M11,so called dave to find out how far they had pootle too...luckily they were just ahead .....got up the M1 without to much hold up ..........only the agonising 50 mph through the roadworks for about 10 miles..........met up with Ben (bigman) at the service station ,had a quick cuppa then headed off for LMF...couple of incidence on route,the first was Pete driving over a dead badger and spraying blood and guts all over Daves car ....second ...pete again this time nearly mowing over a pedestrian....arrived at LMF about 10.30...a good array of cars there from different clubs.i think we had about 10 to 12 cars from our club there ....
got to see Mavericks stunning car ...Mark the cabby..and a late comer Spoons.john 35...pugster..and a fellow 2.0t owner ,who for life of me cant remember his name (sorry) Jazzy i think ( ok just cked it was Jay or (Jay-z ) so my memory aint to bad ....and sorry for anyone else i missed
the weather was great ,coffeee and food supplied......there were some trophies up for grab ,but we left b4 the winners were announced,I think i would of won dirtiest engine bay ,i wondered why the kept asking for ppl to pop their bonnets......EEEEEEEEEK thats a mechanics job surely lol ....well I looked at a dark dingy engine bay,so i gave it a quick wipe round ,so alas i think i done myself out of a trophy lol
only slight down side was LMF's lack of stock .i wanted to by the mapreading lights and sunglass holder.they only had the sunglass holder but promised to post free of charge the mapreading lights.
sorry i didn't get to say goodbye as pete and dave were revving up to leave as i came out of the toilet
once again a BIG thankyou to LMF and to Pete and Dave for getting me there and rather quickly bk home again
I'm sure Dave and ben will post some piccies later ,as i,m not use to my new camera phone yet
