Need to tax and polish the 220T at the weekend.

Scary mileage going on it this year :scared (reckon I might do over 500 by the time I have been to Preston Park, Gaydon and Rover Fest)

Late issue.... slow puncture and nail in tyre .... so I'm now down at Kwik Fit getting it repaired. Setting off in a couple of hours. A mad rush around this lunch time getting it sorted.

I could have used a spare I guess but my spare is a steel not an alloy so wouldn't look great in a show.

Tell you what, it's amazing how many garages are CLOSED on Saturdays....

Arrived at our hotel just after 5. Journey up wasn't too bad apart from a couple of occasions where the temperature gauge climbed a little too high for comfort and we also had a hiccup/misfire under hard acceleration in top gear before that. We were about 100 miles into the journey at the time and taking it easy for a few miles soon got things back to normal.

No water loss, though, so I am suspecting a lazy thermostat.

We plan to arrive at the show between 9 and 9.30 tomorrow morning (entries close at 10.00)

Would anybody like to meet us in the car park of the Premier Inn Stockton West at 9am?

If we are there in time, we will meet you at the Premier Inn but don't wait for us if we are not there at 9.

I utterly cocked up meeting you all at Premier Inn, which was special of me since I live pretty much the closest but I did at least manage to get some pictures sorted out for you all. You can find the full gallery here: http://s845.photobucket.com/user/volksa ... ton%20Park

It was a shame the spot was quite so dusty as it was otherwise prime real estate being right next to the entrance. Still put on a good show all the same, the only group with more were the Austin Gypsy lot and it's not often they outnumber anyone at a show.

Just arrived back home, having left here at 5am this morning. 405 miles in a day in a 26 year old car. A good show and a good day out!

Glad everyone that came to this show enjoyed themselves in the Sunshine today. This was the busiest I've ever seen the show and I've been attending a number of years with my various heritage vehicles.
Todays attendance was approx 5000 people so gives a good idea of its popularity.
