Great Patrick. Mine's a 1990 416. I know of at least two other 416's too. Look forward to seeing you and the car tomorrow. :-)


Maybe we'll get the 2 white GSi's and 1 GTi next to each other :)

Just checked over my 216 GTi (1990) and she is running well, filled her up at the local garage - Ready to go at 7:30 in the morning.

See you at POL about 9-ish.

Luckily my white 416 GTi is going to be there. Last minute both rear calipers renewed as they were jammed in :scared
So new brakes and discs all round too. New fuel filter and spark plugs. Shame I brought the wrong HT leads. :slapme

See you around 9am too hopefully.

You coming down the M6?

M1 for me. Not sure on the roadwork situation. Might have to make it a 7.15am departure!

Just passing by Longbridge on the M42 right now and it is raining slightly......

The good news for anybody using the M1 and M42 route in the morning is that there are no roadworks on the whole A/M42 part of the journey. Not sure about the M1, though

Great turnout from the Coupes, of the more ordinary versions there were some 216s but only one 214 that I saw (red SEi)?

Apart from mine, which I later brought back to the exit to see everyone off...

Exhaust note of the day: that dark blue phase 1 SD1 3500.
1992 214GSi - recently serviced, and out of trouble until May 18 MOT, looking for replacement subframe for this as current one is rusting.
1995 220 Coupe Turbo flame red - going strong.

95'ish cars of all shapes and sizes - including a Maxi and an Acclaim!

Thank you to everybody who came, I don't think we've had that number together before. Great fun meeting so many new faces and the old ones :D

Craig's going to do a tally from his pics so we'll see what's what :-)

My forehead seems slightly tight. Dunno why... :blushing
I like Twin Cams.... and Single Cams

I'll try this as a panorama shot from the far hill... it's LARGE at almost 9000 pixels wide by 3000 high. Got a few of these... and a lot of bracketed scenery that I've temporarily cropped. Right click and choose "save picture as". Possibly detailed enough to count the 200s and 400s. There's a prize if you spot Dist and his cabby.

A slightly smaller one (4912 * 1080):

And a single shot from the hill:
