Food, Spares and Steam
First things first and that's food. The next breakfast meeting will be on Sunday 23rd of September at Hillcrest Nurseries, Barningham Road, Stanton IP31 2DU meeting there at 10am. As the name implies there is a garden centre with shop/deli type produce. Please let me know if you would like to attend as I have booked 8 seats which may be filled up very soon, more can be arranged.
Spares, this time a bit of a goldmine. These were fitted by a previous owner to a TR5 which was not used before it was sold to the current owner who wishes it to be returned to "factory original spec", so basically new bits.
They are 4-off 4.5j 15” 60 spoke chrome wheels, 1-off 4.5j 15” 60 spoke painted wheel, 2 l/h and 2 r/h centre lock flanges 2 l/h and 2 r/h knock of nuts, 8 front studs, 8 rear studs and 16 nuts - to be sold as a set at £650.00.
1 pair uprated front spax adjustable shock absorbers, £90.00, 1 pair uprated front springs 390 lbs £30.00, 1 pair of 25% uprated rear lever shock absorbers £120.00 and 1 pair uprated rear springs 390lbs £30.00. 1 late spec (side drain sump pan) this has slight damage £25.00 and 1 oil filter housing spin on filter type £25.00. Please contact TME Motorsport Engineering Ltd ,Chedburgh,Suffolk tel 01284850690.
Steam; keep a note in your diary for Sunday 7th of October for a run out to the Forncett Steam Museum as this is a steam up day with a model engineers exhibition. Route, start time and venue will be in a separate e-mail but expect it to start near Stowmarket mid morning, approx. 30 mile route. The Museum has no access to wi fi or modern technology (that's why its a steam museum) so cash will be required for tea cakes etc.
And finally, if you have not purchased your Abbott and Stour T shirt, sweat shirt or cap get in contact with Vince at firstname.lastname@example.org Those of a nervous disposition had to endure the sight of certain "manly" physiques at Cars by the Lake yesterday as we made sure that our orders were the right size (apologies to ladies small children and dogs).
And finally, finally-we had a great day at Fornham yesterday raising money for the local hospice with a stand of seven cars. We would really like next year to attend one of the larger shows such as Cars by the Lake, Helmingham Hall or Euston and have a stand with every mark of TR from a 2 to an 8,the more the merrier.
