Re: BL Autumn Rally, Milton Keynes Museum 30th Sept 2018

Hi everyone,

Are we expecting much of a turnout from the club in this event? I am pretty sure I'm going to this, just need to give the SD3 a clean! :laughing2

Re: 'The BMC & Leyland Show' at the British Motor Museum 1st July 2018

Yes I thought it was a great show, I wonder if Peteborough's BL rally will better it?

The heat got to me too and prevented me staying until the end, even inside BMM was very warm!

I understand that the final SD3 is with an enthusiast although I have not seen it recently. Oh well that is great news! :welcome Dave! I am gla...

Re: Newbie Mk1 SD3 Owner from Midlands

British Racing Green was only available on the SD3 for the final year of production. The final SD3 off the production line, a 216 Vitesse was in BRG. It was very much the "in" colour in the late 80s early 90s. Thanks for confirming that! I also did actually see the final SD3 at the British Motor Mu...

I thought I'd also add some photos as let's be honest that's what we like, and you'll notice I made an effort to find some appropriate backgrounds!

Re: Newbie Mk1 SD3 Owner from Midlands

Thanks guys!

GTIJohn, yes we did I believe. I will try harder to take it to more shows this year, and I think it's a strong possibility I'll be going to the NEC next week!
