But... a little on the few side. I know I had a couple of PM's saying some folk would be away that day but thanks to Jezz & TrueBlue for making the numbers up. Also thanks to Volvo for supplying some goodies that were very well recieved by us.
The day was very successful, partly because we had the weather on our side and secondly we got to see a very unusual XC70. Jezz decided to bring his XC70 in full battle gear and at one stage had all the lights working. If anyone wants a good auto-electrican I am sure Jezz could supply you with the details of his guy. The workmanship on the fuses and relays is second to none. The area is hidden below the rear deck and the electrican has left room for future additions to be added.
After arriving at about eleven o'clock in the morning and 'looking over' each others cars we explored the wealth of history in Duxford. We left tired and very happy at the first meet about five o'clock.
Some more photos will follow in the coming days.
I am trying to arrange another meet in the Winter months, when we will meet up at a 4x4 course. I have had quite a bit of interest from fellow members about this and feel it would be a good way to get to know your car. The course is set in a disused gravel quarry so major damage to your car should be out of the question. There will also be a BBQ and some warm drinks to keep everyone on their toes. For the rest of the family there will be other driving attractions like quad bikes and if I get a higher level of interest a chance to drive a new XC70 & XC90 over the course. I am hoping that one or two of the local dealers will come along and support us in this matter, so a build up of interested names would help provide the additional attractions. In order to get additional support in time, does anyone have a right time for this meet as the course is always water logged and a chalange to drive, with woods and plains to drive over the only thing you will need is your rubber boots and a willingness to test your car for the purpose it was built for.
