Practical Classics 'Restoration Show' – Report The ‘Resto Show’ is a great opener to the season! It’s the sister show of the year closer in November, the ‘Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show’ and despite covering fewer halls (3 to the big show’s 5), its well worth a
Cars 'n' Coffee @ Greenside Garden Centre Sunday out – Cars, Tea & Bacon Rolls! Sunday the 29th saw the first ‘Cars ‘n’ Coffee’ of the year at Greenside Garden Centre, Newhouse, Motherwell, so I thought I’d head over and spend a Sunday morning at this relaxed and
After missing a couple of years (akin to most shows) it was great to see Bridge of Allan appear as a destination weekend in the calendar.
This was a show, run by the Stirling & District Classic Car Club, that I […]
A foray across the border to celebrate Spring!
An 8am start for the 100 (ish) mile trip to Carlisle to attend the 2022 edition of ‘Retro Toyota Day’ – only my daughter was up in time to go with me. The rest of […]

I used to enjoy our chats at get togethers…
Gutted for Andrea, Ray & the family. Thoughts with all of you.
My FaceBook Messenger inbox will be a much quieter and less funny place without Keith around.
