Re: Going Dutch 2020

Just checked the Going Dutch website for update on the Coronavirus situation, and I note that the organisers are intending to review the situation at the beginning of April. I've had a message from Stena line who we are booked with indicating that they are prepared to be flexible if booking changes ...

Re: National awards winners?

Yeah, thanks, Simon - only got a copy of the awards from Kimberley yesterday - came on here (or tried to!) to post them and of course the Forum was down for its upgrade.....I should have checked before the weekend and I'd have found them. ;) If anyone is reading this thread and finds out that they w...

Re: National awards winners?

Re: Outstanding effort by Richard Murtha

Don't talk to me about the journey back.....got to face that yet :) -stayed overnight at one of Blanche's relatives in Bournemouth. Happy to help - couldn't see the young lad stranded..........wrote off my first Imp when I was 19, a long way from home, and I remember what a major PITA that was.....

I've just been inspecting JDU 46E as its been bought my someone local to me who got in touch. Looks a very genuine car to me - though obviously had a hard life ;).

Always a good show, much more "Clubbie" than Autosport.....usually plenty of autojumble type stands, but the hall they are in tends to be very cold - think unheated barn ;) - so wrap up warm :)

Thanks for the comments guys......I guess the main part of the problem is that I make my living by stripping Alfas for spares - although I'm trying to be semi-retired now - and I've got several project Alfas as well.....at the last count I have a dozen cars (including the Yellow peril above) around ...

I've owned this car for 15 years now......and it now needs some loving TLC, but as usual I've got a lot of projects around.....including a Husky, and even the ex-shaun Felstead Imp pickup.....tho I'm not sure that will ever get restored.... http://i30.photobucket.com/albums/c318/Lancsbreaker/Cleanye...

Re: Improving brakes on rally Imp

Interesting topic - I've just resurrected my modded 998 Chamois after a considerable period out of action - and the brakes are sticking - so much that I thought I'd break the Rotoflexs moving off - I'm guessing the master cylinder is objecting to being disturbed after its long rest :wink: Ever since...
