Re: Walton Bridge Breakfast Meet 24/2/2019

Great pics as always! To fill in some gaps, Winnie owns the Mk1 Granada (he used to have Capris, and is now in a wheelchair following an accident. Lovely bloke, recognisable but longish curly hair), and Andy owns the Escort cab. I was at another meet more local to me (White Lion) and despite everyth...

Re: Masterchef....

I was looking into ice cream van but not sure if it will be ok as Brooklands already sell ice cream lollies like Magnum in the café. But looking forward to sampling home made cakes please!

If you're only 5 miles down the road, a push there will suffice, or trailer in! As long as it's there, you're part of the day!

As soon as you drive in you will be guided by our marshals with many other Capris of all models and styles. Our merchandise is...

Re: Fraudsters at it again.

One of the Capri guys on facebook called ebay 8 times to get the ads removed, and they have. The problem is being worldwide ebay cannot really keep up with these scam ads, and if you entered in keywords to the algorithm that would block it you could also prevent thousands of genuine sellers who are ...

Re: Simply Ford 2019

Course the weather will be great! But the main thing is the tarmac area is secured. Did anybody see that they made an official announcement on their site about that? Ignore the fact that it says SCC will be supplying the cars, it goes to show that are acknowledging it!

Re: Next Year will be the 50th Anything Happening?

218 Capris at the 45th to be precise, with over 1000 visitors. We are aiming for over 250 & I'm really wanting over 300. For those familiar to the layout the new Finishing Straight area is mostly where the Capris will go, right up to the bottom of the banking area How & where we put everyone...

Re: Next Year will be the 50th Anything Happening?

Better still if you come off the A3 towards Brooklands & go beyond the roundabout that leads to the Members Hill, the next roundabout takes you to Tesco, which will be the better meeting point. There is a possibility of doing something there convoy wise, so we might need a volunteer to wait ther...

Currently in the process of doing mine. I've gone for the rice & water method as I have no baby bottle brushes to hand. Seems to be doing a good job so far.

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

Fantastic this has now been confirmed, but I'm torn! One part of me wants to attend, however there is so much organisation with Brooklands to do I'm not sure if I really can take the time or the money to get over to Dunton from where I am. I may have to miss it for that reason, but I'll make a decis...

Re: Simply Ford 2019

Right, well we have secured the tarmac area, and I have been advised if people purchase their tickets, and let me know, then I can email a club label to you individually when I receive it. 20 spaces set aside, let me know when you've booked your ticket online!

Re: Sierra and Capri UK ads

Completely agree on the old adverts, but that's the point. Car ownership was more special years ago, people used to take photos of themselves posing with their new purchase, be it new car or secondhand, or kids in their parents cars. Nowadays 99% of new cars are white goods, and I argue this point, ...

Re: Simply Ford 2019

Right, who's keen for it next year?

Beaulieu are doing a similar setup for the Capri as they did with the Escort at Simply Ford this year, so how about a joint SCC/Laser/CP club stand, on the tarmac? I need to give some good numbers but if we can get 25 combined than that'll be great!

However, I have watched the latest Wheeler Dealers, because different mechanic, principles of putting cars together are the same. I just hav...
