Good to meet John (GTiJohn), Tim and Jeremy for the first time today.

I saw Paul from the Allegro club and was amazed that he remembered by name after not seeing him for maybe 9 years, and especially as I didn't go to that many shows in my Allegro in the grand scheme of things.

Just shows how friendly us Rover / BL lot are :D .

Pics to follow later.

Nice pictures, it was good to meet and put some faces against names/Forum Names. Pity about the rain, but the weather improved afterwards of those of us who were still there at 4pm.

Really enjoyed yesterday its a pity the weather disgraced itself in the afternoon. Will see if I can get some of my pictures on here. Got an average of 43mpg out of the Cabriolet over the weekends 442 miles of motoring.

Just the encouragement you need, if you didn't already know you'd 'done the right thing'!

Classic Car Buyer mag ( dated 22/7) has a belated review of this event including a pic of "no.1" with my 2 cars behind it.

It describes no.1 as "It was easy to miss its significance among the other cars..." - we'd better get a big yellow arrow mounted on the roof for the next time it comes out :laughing2

In terms of recognisable number plates, G79XKV doesn't yet rank alongside 621AOK or HUE166 but it's time will come!!
