Would attendees please put their hands down the back of the sofa and dig out a few pound coins to bring along for a donation to the Milton Keynes Museum?

They've had a difficult couple of years and still don't charge us for this event :angel

We'll have a suitable donation tin/bucket on our stand :D

Fatigue permitting, I might be able to come in the 45 1.8 Connie. How late can you arrive?

Biggest problem is if you arrive late it’s a small field so you might not get on.

It looks like I won’t be able to make this now. :sad

The 216 has a split cv boot & failed the mot yesterday. The good news is everything else looks perfect (including the underneath! :) ), but the bad news is that it won’t be fixed until Monday. :slapme

Someone say hello to the concrete cows for me - the smallest one which looks like a badger, is my favourite…..

Sadly not. It’s in storage 350 miles away, and hasn’t been mot’d for a few years.

I could bring a Fiat, or maybe the Alfa 166 - that has various windows which work sporadically, so would pass for an 800 if you squint (a lot)…… :)

What is it about people? Have we become a nation of selfish idiots?

I drove past a local petrol station yesterday and it looked as though a couple of drivers were close to coming to blows. Perhaps anyone who was filling up, should have been be given a lifetime supply of condoms to prevent them breeding? :*laughing my fat rear end off*

I must admit that I felt quite smug, as I was driving the Leaf! 😇

Unfortunately it seems so. A couple of pals struggled to get fuel in MK after the show.

I will have to fill my daily drive/ride scooter up at some point this week; keeping my fingers crossed all the morons will be full to overflowing with petrol by then and stocks will have been replenished, otherwise I’m not getting to work!
