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: Imp National 2019

You did a great job, Mike and Kev - as you say lots of complimentary remarks about the Saturday run - I'm looking forward to having a run around it myself some time ;) If anyone who wasn't able to make the trip wants a copy of the "Roadbook of Scenic Runs" incorporating Mike's run, we have a few spa...

Re: National awards winners?

I handed over all the paperwork to Kimberley after the Award Presentation, but I'm sure we can post something a little earlier than October.....I can remember a few - such as Colin Valentine winning "Best Husky" and son Chris Valentine getting "Best Competition Imp", but remembering them all would b...

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 ;).

Anyone have any more information about it......?

Good thread, Tim...only just seen it - I don't get on here as often as I should....

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 :)

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...
