I'm going to have to miss this one unfortunately, I've just had confirmation I can start my extension and this weekend I have a lot of free help so need to take advantage while I can.

I've been having issues with the car recently and probably wouldn't dare drive it that far in fear of having to be recovered again.

You have a year to get fettling ready for next year.
This is why so many of us have more than one Jag. One always needed work, and hopefully the other(S) work.

OK, so it’s not a Kia...

And it’s peppermint green...
But that’s just about where the good stuff ends... ;-)

Off to Coventry for some Vulcan spotting now, hope to see many of you later this weekend!

I know this was touched on before, but did anyone fancy a drive to Caffeine and Machine tomorrow afternoon?

By the looks of it, it does get crowded, but it does look good.

£5 per car parking fee, but you get a voucher to exchange for a non-alcoholic drink of your choice.

Just to let you all know. If you are coming tomorrow, we have XJ40 only parking on the front lawn of the museum.

What are the plans for this evening folks?

Meal out somewhere or just propping up the bar?

Maybe a meal at the Grange? How many of us are there?

I just called Caffeine and Machine about visiting tomorrow afternoon. They said that they would love to see us and our cars.

I’ve parked my four-wheeled breath mint in the furthest corner of shame of the hotel car park. ;)

Another car owner has no reason to be ashamed at all: that can only be Derek’s Daimler...

Dinner @ the hotel sounds like a plan to me, what time works for most?
