That is quite noticeable now I'm not using my phone! :oops: :oops: :roll:

Anyway, I'd still have one! :lol:

This is the beast of the W900 that I'd have...cue Smokey and the Bandit music...

Although I do like the Peterbilts too - anyone seen the "Duel" Movie:

Hi Vince,

We hope that just about everybody will attend :D

Nope, the communication her about the convoy routre was between me and the committee... The destination and route of the convoy will be revealed on the day and even then the eventual destination is not actually revealed in the route plan. You'll know when you get there what and where it is :lol: :lol: :lol:

Looking forward to seeing y0u there Vince..

Not a chance :D The instructions are so clear that Stevie Wonder and Ray Charles could find the place...

Anyway, Robyn has navigated it without any worries and she's unfamiliar with the area...

And if she can....

have you ever noticed when searching gravel for some lost valuable bit you always find the rubbish, old cable tie ends, bits of broken plastic, split balljoint gaiter clips and so on but never what you're actually looking for...

Sometimes, if the gods are smiling, you find what you lost lost time you were working on the car and gave up trying to find at the time.

An old truism is that if you have a spare of something then you'll never loose the original item - it's always the one thing you only have one of that you loose :twisted:
:idea: Absolute Cast - Iron successful method of finding your original lost or missing widget ?

Go and buy another one..... :wink:

Obviously, it's a piano sales centre, as that's what they have in common.

Well we have now sorted out our accommodation for the rally and it certainly tied in nicely as we always go to the BCA Campervan/Caravan Auction Sales at Measham anyway.

There was quite a long shortlist (!) and in the end dad bought the last one in the sale! :lol: Campers are making good money ATM. Strangely enough though it was one of the nicest condition ones there too...

Amazingly there was also a Visa in the auction :o :o but I'll put info in another thread about that...

So, the beast in question is a Fiat 'Swift Lifestyle" with the 1.9TD engine. Unlike lots of them it's in lovely condition and has covered a mere 43,000 miles. It's not too big nor small - similar to this one here. Robert, you'll be pleased to know that it has indeed got a nice large awning! Also, our friend is coming along in his Talbot too! :)
