Hi Nick,
It's a pity you won't be able to make it on the 10th. You don't know what you'll be missing!

Nick,
This time they're giving away some Halfords flexible vinyl paint too. You're really going to miss that! :D

I'm planning on coming to the April meet too. I live in Bristol so won't be convoying with the rest of you but would be great to meet a few people from here. I'll just hunt out Capri corner and introduce myself.

Hi,
Great photo, I like the 5 turbo, and it's a treat to see so many in one place.
The British climate is not too kind to Renault-quality bodywork! The 5 turbo was also prone to catastrophic head gasket failure. In the 90's these cars were mostly in the hands of boy racers who, I'm guessing, couldn't afford to repair them.

Hi Rob,
Fantastic, I'll see you there. It's a shame that your Capri won't be ready in time though.

All the best

Hi Mark,
If we want to be able to park together, the earlier the better. What time do you chaps fancy getting there? We should be OK for spaces if we meet at 7.30, although a little earlier would make sure.
It should be a good day if the weather is good.

Andrew.
