17th - 19th June
It's prophetic I guess, especially given we ended up
going home on an RAC transporter last year with a
broken transfer box, that the new, reliable Auto box
should decide to deposit about 9L of ATF onto the M1
Yep, the (ahem) temporary pipes from the box to the oil
cooler in the front decided to give up the ghost...
As we were flat towed into Tibshelf Services, not 30 miles
from home, the remains of the ATF left the vehicle, I looked
over into the lorry park and saw this...
A couple of hours later - and it has to be said
with thanks to Warren who came out to fix the pipes,
then decided a fix wasn't appropriate so went back to
Sheffield to get some more before replacing them, we
were back on our way - Thursday evening, 11pm, we arrived!
The next evening people were arriving, and obviously
we started drinking... The rest is a blur...
The club shop, never looked better...
Austins wannabe 101 :-)
Some pics for the rivet-counters
and some for the rest of us :-)
New merchandise from the club shop, seen here
modelled (sadly) by club committee members:
Dave Elwin (green) and Ray Adams (blue)
Scenes from the car park
A good show - if a little oddly laid-out, and very, very hot
(note to self: use sunscreen earlier next time!)
Also good to finally meet up with e-friends Austin Shackles
and David French from a.f.l - spend some time with other new
regulars and generally unwind in the sun...
