I’m at Southampton quite a lot , and the Rolls, Bentley, and range rovers are always going to Baltimore.
Yeah , and stitch the UK tax payer big time !!!!He was certainly a car guy, and once in charge of Chevrolet, transformed the Corvette. He believed in the future of the Corvette and was a Corvette guy through and through.
As a salesman, he was one of the greatest. A proper snake oil man. Could sell sand to A rabs, and snow to Eskimo’s
Did anyone take pics of all the Corvettes to the left of the gate as you come in and around the back of the Hotel?..
I had put the white flag up by the time i went round there, finding the energy to walk in that heat was all i could manage.And this is Chris's C6As it happens there were 2 people with Forrest who have both spent time in Gibraltar recently! I have just come back from a weeks holiday there, but most likely you were talking to Chris Bonvini who spends a lot of his time in Gibraltar and was at the Nationals on Sunday. In fact he was at my car with Andy at one point and helped me adjust my tickover.
Just a quick message to those coming for the drive out on Saturday. Shuttleworth Gardens have an event on, BUT, they are open to the public as normal. I was advised that tickets should be available on the gate however buying in advance is advisable.. but.... their website is still down and they are working with I.T. to sort it. I advise check during tomorrow, if you can get tickets in advance, great, if not I'm sure we will be absolutely fine to buy on the gate.
With regard to visiting Keech Hospice, I don't know the numbers joining the run out, but, due to Covid restrictions we are limited to 10 cars at the hospice, if we are fortunate enough to have more than that when we arrive at Shuttleworth I am sure we can have a chat about the ten cars that go to Keech.
Many thanks, Julian
I had agreed prior to last weekend to take up the role of Nats organiser so kept a close eye on Julian and by eck it's a lot of work
Back in my days in the FTO owners club, a large amount of the club got together and approached a t-shirt seller that did custom logos etc and asked them if they'd be up for a discounted group buy. We all ended up with t-shirts roughly in the same colour as our cars, with the FTO club logo and our username underneath them. It was really helpful at shows and events to identify each other.I do recall a fair few years ago now, in the early days of the 'Rods n Sods' Forum we did go to a traders stall at the Ipswich Nats and had T-shirts made with the Forum logo and our Forum 'handle' on.
I already have a trans am shirt so I got a CCCUK hat and my american flag bandana is for driving a V8.As our club shirts available via Rigalia are manufactured by a workwear company and they embroider our logos , why not approach them for a quote to have our names or handle on them too . I know of other car clubs that can get their shirts customised . Two birds with one stone that way rather than two different shirts .
