Can anyone tell me when the Stratford meet is? I gather it is next weekend (11th/12th). Where is it?

I'm making the most of the full weekend stays now before the possibility of having to work weekends comes up!

It was a pity Chris. Make sure you book off the weekend of 10th October for the Duxford Autumn Air Show though :wink:

Stratford was good. Geoff did indeed turn up and passed over a pair of hubs that I believe are destined for you Adam. John didn't but he will be up my way soonish to pick up said hubs and a V6 exhaust I'm storing for him.

Saturday was not well attended, maybe due to the weather and I ended up spending most of the afternoon and evening with the BX Club contingent; it was very heartily enjoyed :lol:

Sunday had an excellent turnout and some very tasty cars. C6s are now as common as Xantias at rallys :lol:

Highlights were the V6 Activa conversion I spoke of in another thread, a Slough-built 1950s 2CV in brand-new condition and a brand new DS23 Pallas EFi that reportedly cost £100K to restore and it looked it too. EVERYTHING looked factory-fresh 8-) It had a private pate on it: 1974 DS. It was a bargain relatively at £2K :lol:

There was an immaculate Slough-built Traction and a very tidy Ami 8 that has been owned-by the same person for 42 years!

My personal highlight was taking delivery of my new V6. A Mauritius blue very early MK2 on a R plate with cream leather and only 61K on the clock. It has full service history and even the original bill of sale. They were expensive cars new :twisted:

It drives like a new one and I've finally experienced cruise control :D I must now redouble efforts to get it working in my MK1 V6...

My new V6 has now gone into semi-storage. It'll only be out to play on long trips and special occasions.

And with the conclusion of Stratford, that's the main rally season over until 2011 now :cry:
