I HAD ONE OF THESE for my last car.

in fact, if you make it up to here on sunday i will loan you mine till we meet again - talk about try before you buy ! :D

tbo, the m1 should be pretty kind to you - and stopping at services along the way will help.
If you ever think I'm off my rocker.. Just put me back in it and walk away... It's the kindest thing
My wife says I never listen - or something like that.

I actually sorta lay with my seating positing , which keeps pressure off my damaged areas. I'll try and sort something out, as I would enjoy the long drive :thumbsup:

im happy to go with this for the 29th

so.. saturday 29th chaps ? any thoughts ? pub brekkie maybe ? somewhere :driving: ?
a post chrimbo shakedown ? when your sick of turkey and you want to kill the kids..

Also, i recall Neil mentioned a Toby in Knowle that may be still be doing "all you can eat" breakfasts for £4.69 - i will check on that - this will suit our more southern fellas, about a mile from junc 5 m42, close-ish to the nec of course

and i was thinking..
anybody in the midland posse, or wants to come along . is more than welcome to suggest a guest meeting place - different places - differant every time , and later in the year , we can go and see other members meets, now who fancies a day at the seaside :driving:

I'm not sure what I'm up to yet on the 29th but if I'm free then the Tree Farm is about the right sort of millage for a meet.
Also just a quick one, is anyone going to Mallory Park on Boxing day for the Plum pudding races ?

It sounds like something out of Dickens but the wife only has Christmas day and Boxing Day off, so... Have fun. :( I can't make the pudding races, only the 29th for me, so which day/ event are you fellas talking about ?
