    Just a quick bump for this. The weather's looking reasonable on Sunday, well dry anyway.

    i'm hoping to be there for around 09.00 providing that I have my car back from Mercedes, otherwise I'll be in the X Box thing and a bit later. :(

    So far I’m looking good, around 8.45 ish/9.00 with the noisy winters on!

    Still can't drive following my foot op so will have to give Feb's meet a miss. Hoping to have the E class in time for the next one but it may be tight with an expected UK delivery date of 15 March!

    Most get there about 9 ish anyway John - the queue for food / coffee gets ridiculous if you leave it much later. But may not be as busy on Sunday. Hope to be there in the CL already arguing about who will be driving - presume I'll lose out as usual.;)

    I see Dave is colour matching to his car now lol

    First time I’ve see a 212 next to the 213, the lines are so subtly different on the 213 but they are both very good looking cars.

    Btw how many times has Dave towled the car off already.

    First time I’d seen them side to side too- the 213 was a couple of inches longer front and back, looks overall bigger and I think just marginally wider
    And .....I was first there Matt so I distracted him from the toweling!!;)

    Nothing to add really, poor turnout to say the weather wasn't bad. Nice 430 and MP12 4C as posted by John above, my personal favourite was this little rascal though: -

    Lotus Sunbeam.jpeg

    1983 Talbot Sunbeam Lotus. Not many about nowadays...

    Not a one Matt, couldn't be bothered today. :)

    Gosh that's a clean engine on that Sunbeem.

    Still suffering with the shoulder Dave?

    Not too bad at the moment thanks Matt, not looking forward to next week though as I have a bit of stretching to do which I know is going to hurt. :(

    Sunbeam was brilliant, The wiring impressed me as everything was trimmed exactly to length.

    If all goes according to plan I'll be there for the April meet now. Bonus being that she would be run in by then (assuming delivery on 18/19 March that is!)

    Next one is 18th March so if by some miracle your delivery improves then you could use this as a run out!!
    We need more Mercs there....
