Definitely!
I'll be leaving home nearly 2 hours before meeting Rob. The roads should be pretty empty at that time on a Sunday morning.... :D

Hi Neil,
Good luck with the MOT (not that your car needs luck)!
I hope to see you there. :D

Thanks Andy and Andrew,

MOT booked for tomorrow. It's always a worrying time, but hopefully all should be okay. Looking forward to the Haynes meet so I'll be extra disappointed if the car fails.

All the best
Neil

Hi Andrew,
I knew Wales had some snow today....After the nice weather recently, the last few days have been horrible :?
Cloudy with the odd shower Saturday so looks like it will be generally ok for Haynes :D

Andrew.
Yes me too! We've had some pretty awful weather, bad snow fall yesterday too. It's like we've gone back a season.
Cheers Andy, hoping for good weather for Sunday. Havnt driven Capri on road since September, looking forward to meeting up with everyone :wave:

Hi Neil,
If 07.30 at Podimore services is out of your way, wait for us infront of Haynes at 07.40 and we will go in together, unless you are happy to park elsewhere when you arrive???

Just a thought :cheers:

The weather is certainly looking a lot better today. The sun is even out! Hopefully more of the same tomorrow. :D

Hi Andy,
It's not too far out of my way as I'm taking a less direct route via Yeovil, because the roads are a bit quicker and I know them well. If I'm running late I might deviate from Yeovil and head straight for Sparkford.
Cya tomorrow and I'll be in the Capri, but I nearly wasn't. Tell you all about it tomorrow :)

All the best
Neil

Had a great morning at Haynes today. Great to meet up with Andy Neil Nigel Andrew & XR club members. Great turnout, we’ll worth the trip.
Shame Nigel’s car had an issue, would have been great to have added his Laser to the group, hadn’t seen Andy’s car until today. It’s a stunner & looks great in Cardinal red, enjoyed seeing everyone’s well turned out cars (must wash mine next time :) ).
Thanks again Andrew for providing Satnav duties, forget your Garmin, it’s one of these you need :cheers: ;

Hi Rob,
Likewise. It was great to catch up with you, Neil and Andy and meet Nige for the first time. As with you, it was the first time I've seen Andy's stunning Capri in the flesh and I was not disappointed. What a beauty.
As last time, I could not stop looking in my mirror almost the whole way....what a wonderful example your car is. It looked brilliant for the short distance I was following you too. And it sounds awesome! :D

Nice photo, by the way!

Andrew.
