Re: Headcorn classic car show 25/08/19

As already said; some lovely cars in your photos. Good to see a Spit featuring too and at such an historic airfield/venue.

Re: Silverstone Classic event - great Capri line up

Just watched this hour long Silverstone programme on ITV4, plenty about the Minis 60th birthday including a race, but they showed no more than 10 seconds of the Capri parade lap and a few words :( Fair enough to celebrate the Mini but they should have given equal coverage to the Capri too! :crying:

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...

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