I had a great day - thanks, John, for the heads up on the 'hidden exhibits section' above the workshop - best part bar none of the museum in my opinion !

Google Maps also sent me back home down some great B-roads to avoid some jam or other on the Mways, so had a great hoon on the way home to make a perfect end to a perfect day.

A great day on Sunday at Gaydon.
Drove most the way home in my cabriolet with the roof down enjoying some superb open top motoring. As soon as I could, I got off the motorway and also enjoyed some great A&B Roads on my way home.
