Did everyone enjoy.........

There Game of HIDE AND SEEK with the rest of the 155 drivers and the virtually impossible to find Little Chef

Chasing each other up and the A14 ..................least we all got together in the end

Even if the Convoy sort of got lost when our man Chris took a wrong turn and we went off and straight back on the A14.................i feel as tho i know everyinch of that road between junction 4 and 8 probably do seen as we went up and down it about 20 times slowly collecting Alfajack and Alfamad and then Bazza and Bobdabuilder until we finally found the rest and made it to Boughton House

Finally got to meet Debs the Orange Monster(who didnt wear her Pink Stilleto`s )

Phil with his SZ ............Daiblack with his shiny wheels and Narlo

Me and Jimbo managed to find the Beer tent almost straightaway


Quote of the day goes to Mr San (while using his sales pitch sellin some wipers) " i didnt answer the phone when you rang because i was havin a P155"

Anyways more will come to light as i remember it.................i`m sure Phil dropped himself in it but can`t remember what he said

Yes, great day, but got sunburnt again.

Apart from AlfaJack telling us how much he got his Q4 for.

Certainly did Speedy mate. When there was just the three of us 145ers in a car park with about 20 155ers we were feeling a bit uncomfortable though...

Re: Did everyone enjoy.........

I did mean to talk to you honest, I just keep having panics about whether the person I'm about to speak to is really who I think it is.
MT came to the rescue, introducing us to people, but we got a bit sidetracked and never made it to you. Sorry
I did speak to you at the MaccyD's anyway, I complained to you about those 155ers who blanked us

Dont hate me becuase I bought at the right time
Had further luck, got a steering rack (new) for 15, According to parts CD it 568

cheered me up when I found that out cus I think I got done by a truvelo camera at about 90mph in a 70 racing another 155 on the way home!

After the interesting drive to the McDs then Little Chef then getting lost twice on the way to Boughton House it was great to meet you guys at last(wont name names as I have a terrible memory), looking forward to the next meet where ever that is!

got some nice stickers and bits too, oh and most importantly some kind person gave me some fuel filter copper washers FREE

Re: Did everyone enjoy.........

Another good day out with the usual faces...a few more to add to the list, Hello Dai and Debs (+shoes!)...missed Barry though (guess last time was enough eh!). Sorry Bob and Bazza, couldn't chat for long as you saw Got dragged off to look at the Spider that was for sale, g/f foaming at the mouth aint a pretty sight :d

Many apologies if we didn't get much chance to chat (hope we didn't ignore anyone by mistake!). but think the only time I stopped talking was driving home

Excellent day out and I'm depressed I dont earn enough money to buy one of those 6C's [DROOL]

Re: Did everyone enjoy.........

As other people have said it was a great day out! Good to be able to put faces to names. I even got to meet the guy who owned my 155 from new! Turns out he's moving to Bolton in a few weeks. Small world!

Just two complaints, l too got sunburnt so you're not on your own Barry
and the fact it took aaaages to get home due to an accident on the M60.

Even enjoyed the run up and down the A14!

There was an accident on the M1 too....g/f left me to get home as soon as we hit the M1..so there's me doing 40-50mph all the way home (2hrs) and she only beat me by 15mins Turns out she got stuck in the standstill traffic due to the accident which had cleared by the time I got there tortoise and the Hare
