Hi Danny,
It would be worth your time going. John posted these photos of last year's show and it looked amazing.

Andrew.

Thanks for posting this Danny, I'd forgotten. I'm 90% sure I'll go so long as I can get my sister to come and look after mum.

Christ!!!! What have I done??? I thought this was August this Year....

I was double booked with 'Folk on the Oak' & helping a mate put up a Big Tent for a party over Haverhill way this Week End... Now triple booked.... :shock: :shock: :shock:

This is a Fantastic Show, been a few Years running, cheers for posting last Years pics Andrew by the way.... Really well worth making the effort, I'm stuck what to do now... Argh!!!!!! Up with Battlesbridge Classic Ford show this one in my eyes.... Nick came along a couple of Years ago too and I believe he thoroughly enjoyed it too....

If I can make this I will..... cheers for the 'Heads Up' Danny....

All the best,

John....

John

I thought you was the guru on the shows and as such was putting a yearly plan together for us :xd:

Might try and get to this myself, let me know if you are definitely going

I've had to send my rad off to be repaired so I hope it comes back in time, otherwise looks like I might pilfer the one from the GL so I can go :lol:

Will be an early start for me too, its at least a five minute drive from my house :lol:

Will be good to see you guys there if anyone can make it, as Andrew and John mentioned, it is a pretty decent show!

Cheers
Danny

Hi All,

Mark, what a Good Memory you have there!!! I did say I would work on a Calendar didn't I... Ops!!!! As said, this is a Great Show and if I can P($$ off enough of my Friends to make this I will.... Ekk!!!! I honestly don't know how I made this mistake. I will let you know asap if I can make it and hopefully catch up!!!

As to Andrew, yes your right, it is quicker with V6 Power, but can be more Sideways so you have to go home to change!!! :xd: :xd: :xd: So actually longer in the long run... Doh!!!

Hope you get your Rad sorted Danny, be good to catch up again!!! After all, you're only half an hour from me!!!!

All the best for now, cheers,

John...

[quote="Taff50ish"]Hi All,


Hope you get your Rad sorted Danny, be good to catch up again!!! After all, you're only half an hour from me!!!!

Just called the Rad company, they said it is so screwed up it would cost £60-70 to replace, or can supply a brand new one for £90.... x1 new rad ordered and should be here by the end of the week!!

The new concern is what could case it to get so messed up quite so quickly and he said it can be a faulty thermostat, a head gasket going or loads of air in the system, none of which sounds too encouraging but that's a problem for another day! :lol:

Fingers Crossed it now all goes smoothly so we can rock up on Sunday! :D

Cheers
Danny

Hey Danny, everyone else too.....

Yep, I'm all ready for this. I'll be setting off about 11, so expect to get there approx 11:30 > 11:45.... Unfortunately I won't be taking the Cappa this Year though. My folks are currently visiting and we're all going, so I'll be taking the Honda, as I need to get my Mums buggy in the back and it just don't fit in the Cappa... Bar Humbug!!! But hopefully see you there maybe, cheers for now,

John....
