Recommended Posts

Today I went to the gaydon car museum and Coventry transport museum

Coventry was good considering it's donations , had the xk8 concept , x type concert , mk 2 , e type f type and ss as well as other British card

Grayson was very good I have added an album of photo to my profile from here , it was 12 for an adult to get in but if you keep recipt you can go back as many times as you like within 12 months. All cars looked like new lots of classics , to name a few cars xj 220, mk 2 e type , rover v8 estate concept , Chris boarderman lotus bike, lotus 7 , that mg x power super car and all cars are in amazing condition really good day out good for kids lots of engines / gear boxes cut in half. There is an mg miget were the full car is cut in half.

Sounds like a fabulous day out Luke and worth keeping in mind for next summer now (I tend to hibernate in winter months). I actually know for a Interceptor. Old retired dentist owns it and I know for a fact its been locked up in his garage since the mid 80's. Would be great project for an enthusiast restorer.


Come next spring I've a great day out which cannot come quick enough for me! 3 laps of the Top Gear Test Track in a reasonably priced car followed by being in the audience for the evening.  :D

On the Jenson we moved into a new house in hills in W Yorkshire about 3 years ago. The house next door is abandoned due to subsidence and both that house and ours are surrounded by woods. A year or so in I was working in my garden and peered over the wall and literally 5 yards away is a Jenson in the woods. Totally rotten which is a shame. Seems to have a cloth roof which hasn't survived! It is still there but I think it is beyond repair :-(
