16th June - Senlac Classic Car Show, Bodiam East Sussex

Postby richard1983 » Sat Feb 16, 2019 2:12 pm

I've just had my invitation to attend the above show again this year.

I attended last year with ChrisW and Kingfisher - and it was a great day out.
Good one for fathers day....

It's a larger event this year with hopefully 350+ cars. Lots of beer, food, music, kids stuff, arts & crafts etc.

Amazingly, I'll be home again for it - so I'll hopefully be able to bring both the 40's.

It's Sunday 16th June 1000-1700. (TN32 5UA). £4 per car to exhibit.

Will be excellent to see you there Chris.

I’ll book both of mine and hope for the best!

I’ll message Kingfisher again, but not sure if he’s still active.

I haven’t seen his car for a while.

Has he given up on his project car already? :shock: I don’t recall any update since he first posted about a year ago?

Hi Chris.
I'm going to book both in, but not sure if I'll be able to bring the Daimler.
It's looking a bit sorry for itself at the moment. Lots of leaks, suspension and cooling woes at the moment. Still putting it back together.
Jag will hopefully be there though!

Yes, but only sent off the application form yesterday!

No matter, even if the paperwork doesnt come through in time I'll be there anyway. Just the XJ12 though. Which until 2 days ago was refusing to start....

If your paperwork doesn't turn up Chris, you can have my second pass if you like!

The Daimler will not be making it, so it's spot is up for grabs.

They want booked cars in before 0945, as they admit the public at 1000.

Finally got round to a pic from the show now that we have pic hosting.

Unfortunately, the weather didn't help - so the turn out wasn't great.

However, it was good to see Chris again, talk some cars, and eat cake and burgers.

Thanks to the rain, photo opportunities were kept to a minimum.

It was also young Samuels first car show - albeit from the boot, which made a handy changing room for nappies!

He was obviously delighted about the situation. Naturally.
