So the final breakfast meet of 2017 in on Saturday October 7th @1000AM. The Aug one we had 48 Italian cars, evey marque was represented. the meeting is again being organised in the same format. Its an informal meeting of Italian car enthusiast, we parkup, chat, admire the cars, and have a good breakfast(best to get in early before the queue really picks up lol!).

The meet will be held at 10am at The Departure Lounge Cafe GU34 4BH, just outside Alton in northern Hampshire.
It's open to any Italian car of any age, and we have had classics through to modern Alfas, Fiat's and Ferraris and everything in between. Attendees have come from across the southern counties, with enthusiasts arranging their own convoys from Hampshire, Wiltshire, Dorset, and Surrey or arriving independently.

The cafe is a great venue for a breakfast meet, as it has a large solid field on which the owner lets us park so all the cars are together and out of the main public car park (have a look at the photos from the last event (http://www.alfaowner.com/Forum/south-central/1083858-saturday-5th-august-2017-italian-car-breakfast-meet-2.html#post16351673) and this youyube video -
)

There are few meeting points, for those coming from Southern Hampshire there is a meet at 08:30 in the car park of Sainsbury's at Junction 7 of the M27 (Hedge End), close to the petrol station, and then drive up in convoy.

There is also another meet in Newbury at 0900 in the McDonald car park McDonald - Newbury Retail Park, Pinchington Ln, Newbury RG14 7HU

So for the final one of 2017 we would love to see as many as possible, and hopefully have a new record of Italian metal there (48 is the current).
Please spread the word to other Italian marque forums or boards, and get those cars down there!! the breakfast is worth it!!

hopefully see you then

Quite possibly my fishy friend.
It wasn't said in a bad sense - I recall reading something about those parts being form Supra. Not a bad choice of donor.

Not taken in any bad sense either. It's a good thing. They were helping to develop the supra at the time so got access to parts. Biggest being gearbox and differential but also brakes and switches.

I'm going to try to get down to this and bring my boy along. I'm nurturing his appreciation of beautiful Italian cars. I hope that Alfetta GTV is there that I've seen in the pics from the August event!

Got my hockey umpiring appointments for October, and the 7th is 3pm at Wimbledon. That'll do nicely - I'll be able to join everyone.
