Thank you Howard for organising this and why a good turn out for a weekend in Jan. I wonder how many more might come out when the sun does :)

I might have to think about organising a West Mids or Warwickshire meet up ...
Don't bother, just come to ours instead.m :clapping

I think it was Howard who said he'd got himself a pov spec metallic green Streetwise at the meet. I said I thought I knew the car so I had a look through some pics, these from April 2015. Same car?

By the way, were any of the attendees ill in the week before the meet? I've been laid up since Weds and I might have caught it from one of you lot!

Whoever it was, Paul, they gave it to me too! I blame whoever was the quietest, it's always the quiet ones.

Just had a closer look at the pic and spotted the black roof on the red 5door - very MG EX-E :clapping

I think a coupe looks good with the small front section of the roof painted gloss black but it doesn't work with the A -pillars as they run into the cant rails and then the D-pillars...
I like Twin Cams.... and Single Cams

Cheers :D. That black roof was the solution to this problem. Probably the worst roof leprosy I've seen on an R8. Worked better in person than it did in my head, which was a pleasant surprise.

We had our second meeting of the North East & Yorkshire Group at The Angel Hotel Topcliffe near Thirsk today.
Only a small turnout of members due to it being Mother's Day .
Thanks to all who came along.
