If I can find a ZT-T by then I'd come to the MG Saloon Day. Especially as it is in a Railway Station

Hi Nick

Things are going better now. Lost my enthusiasm for a while but got it back when the Boss said I could get a ZT-T and keep the Trophy. I'm afraid I won't be going for a 260 Shocked but have my eye on a petrol blue 190 and a red 180 Sports Auto. Very Happy

The ZT-T will let me drive an MG and take the dogs with me if Moira is on shift. I wonder how the dogs will react to a steam engine tho' Embarassed

I'm really looking forward to this meet, I enjoyed last year's immensley. Also looking forward to seeing everyone again and joining Neil's Z Register.

And Dave, long may it stay out as long as I have air con in the new Bus and can keep dropping the hood in the F Very Happy

Ooh lucky man, you get 2 MGs. I rather like the sound of the 180 auto, not enough red ZT-Ts around. Any idea when you might have it by?

The only problem with the red one is that it is a flat (non metallic) colour Sad But I hope to be in one by next weekend Cool

I was atually overtaken by a red ZT-T yesterday, all polished up and looking beautiful. It just shows how a non-metallic colour can be made to look incredible with a little love and attention...

OK... Convoy...

Can I suggest meeting at Sixfields Cinema car park at 8.30am? That should give us good time for the trip and allow us to set up our stand.

I'm not sure who has paid in advance, if any, but they say on their website that only prepaid entrants are allowed in before 10am. I'm sure, as we are a displaying club, that this can be waived fo us!

I would like to just ask everyone who is planning to come to make sure their names are on the list.

The better half wants to sort a few bits out before we go away again at the end of the month and seeing as i put her off last week for MGLive it looks like it's gonna be this sunday instead.

What a lovely sedate day out that was Very Happy A lovely drive up, good company - nice to meet Neil again - nice old railway station and a good drive back.

The venue had potential but wasn't exploited enough (no coffee or burger van) and a 400 yard plus walk to the station cafe Shocked

Good job we didn't buy tickets for the train journey as it was pulled by a diesel Shocked Laughing

Piccies are here http://s161.photobucket.com/albums/t203/mrmedox/MG%20Saloon%20Day%202009/

but I must post this one of Phil's new blue F Laughing



and our new club gazeebo

Great pics Dave... Now HERE are my additions! Cool

Not a bad day and the weather could have been alot worse. Very disappointed with the venue, in the middle of nowhere, grass that would polish your exhaust even in a Land Rover, and not as close to the railway as the advertising would have you believe. However, we turned it round with enjoyable natters and caught up with other friends. Very Happy

I think Neil shot off early but he stayed longer than he originally said! And Seb? Nowhere to be seen... Suspect
