Pride of Longbridge - 14th April 2012

Post  Rich on 27/1/2012, 7:43 am



Once again, we've reserved a space for the SmS stand and a few cars at this excellent event where many interesting and varied vehicles with a link to the Longbridge factory gather. The event started 7 years ago with 20 cars turning up. Last year, there were over 850!

To get a feeling of what it's about, take a look at My pics and Tony's pics from last year.

It's also hoped that we'll be officially joined by the Brit-Cars crew and this may include a few MG6s.

Perhaps we could have a barbecue again...


If you're interested, please post. Details of the convoy over will be here in plenty of time.

SmS folk interested:
  • Rich (& Kate?)
  • Tony (& Dawn?)
  • Hellen, Andy & Fraz (?)
  • Iain (& Emma?)
  • Colin
  • Lee S
  • Jo
  • Cheryl & Trevor
  • Dave & Carole
  • Lee & Sue
  • Ed & Sarah
  • Steve
Brit-Cars folk interested:
  • MartinW (MG6 or TF LE500)
  • Jerry Zedman (MG6)
  • Tracy McK (ZS?)
  • Gnasher (ZT?)
  • MattyZS - ZS
  • GT (BRM)

I think you can add to the BCF list Dave Clark (ZS180 or MG6) and remove Tootall.

It's a Longbridge car so why not? I haven't decided whether I'll take TC or Smudge yet. Depends on the weather, although any excuse to go topless...! Cool

I've got that little gas fired one now so I guess it would be rude not to bring it. If everyone could bring a bit of food to throw on it'd work well.

Can Rich tell the local scrotes not to come this year though please? Suspect

Might persuade Emma to come along in her car! Laughing

I reckon that would do the job. I'm sure I can find some bangers, burgers and baps! Eating

We'll put guards around the perimeter fence... Talk on the Brit-Cars forum suggests bunting to keep us all in and the riff-raff out...
Cool innit!

Captain Slow wrote:Might persuade Emma to come along in her car! Laughing
That would be splendid. Boosts the numbers and makes our display a little more varied...

We had some 'lads' come over from the local estates who wandered through between the stands and too near the cars for comfort. Mouthy little gits. Thought they owned the park and could do no wrong. You know the type! Iain was particularly upset when they got 'close' to his prize-winning Zed... Shocked Evil or Very Mad

Of all the times I've been to this event, it's the first I've known any problems at all. I'm pretty sure we'll be fine this year and we'll have many more on our stand to keep an eye on things. Also, I'm hoping we'll be further down the field with a better area and in the middle of the event action!

They were lucky George & I didn't batter the crap out of them, being honest. I'm a pretty placid, laid back person, but they were taking the mickey, especially when they started touching my car.

Just sent Emma a text telling her to book the morning off work. Don't suppose there's scope for going up on the Friday night & camping? Very Happy

Don't think there are the facilities available. I know one or two are staying in B&Bs or cheap hotels nearby but I don't even know what there is to do on the Friday evening. Definitely nothing happrning at the park unless you want to join some dog walkers!

Meh - I was only thinking it'd be a laugh for us all to camp. It's an hour away so I'm not overly worried-it's not a massive distance to travel on the morning.
