Re: SEP 1, 2019 @ DUNTON, FORD – THE EVENT YOU ALWAYS PROMISED YOURSELF

I live in Devon so due to the distance, I'm considering travelling up the afternoon before this event. There are a few cheap rooms available but I don't know the area at all and wondered if any "locals" amongst you could suggest the best hotel/guest house? Looking to be quite close to Dunton and so...

Re: SEP 1, 2019 @ DUNTON, FORD – THE EVENT YOU ALWAYS PROMISED YOURSELF

A few folks including myself stayed here the night before the Ford Warley event, very nice place & although no secured parking, cars were tucked away in big car park well away from the road

Re: Laser 1600

Crikey that makes me feel old, I remember binge watching Bond films (on VHS) when I was supposed to be in college. I'm loving the Capri now. Another short run out today since the spare kept going flat so I took it to my friendly local tyre man. Super chap we found on the local trading estate a coup...

Re: SEP 1, 2019 @ DUNTON, FORD – THE EVENT YOU ALWAYS PROMISED YOURSELF

We now have as many as 20 of the ex SVE team coming and they will mingle with the Capri owners, help each one find another 20-30 horses (stuff that you don't find in the Haynes - stuff you only find under testing) and all that good stuff. Also, we will have some tales from them - what they did, car...

Re: Brooklands 50th Attendance

Woo Hoo, we shall go to the ball. The old tart, who is most likely going to be called Debs unless someone comes up with a better idea (D332 VCW) is now running lovely (with a few rattles of course), so just going to shove the passenger seat in for my lad, and we'll be along to make the rest of the ...

ALL DONE CHAPS.! :) Just sent our final numbers (18 Capris) off to Kris to reserve our forum space at Brooklands :) Thanks Nick. Looking forward to it; hoping the weather is kind.

We are now a smidge away from 200 Capris attending. Just signed up. (comment on Brooklands event thread also noted).

Hi Rob

Congratulations on your son's wedding.

Great idea calling into The Count's museum; love the Caddy and Chevy? Gasser? but all look incredible.

Have a great trip.
