    A Grand Day Out, Folks. An Amazing day with so much to see. Cars from the past that were so silent running, that's is no wonder one of them was named Silver Ghost, to the the throaty roar of the Sports cars, that excites a slightly younger generation!!! ^:)^

    Marymac has been elected as our Belisha Beacon with her bright orange coat. I'm sorry Mary, but you will always have to wear that coat, even on the top down days, that is if we get any ever again!!!! ;)

    Welcome to Duncan (La_vida_diver) Pete & Val (Bessie Blue) and PeterandJenny too, although we seemed to get parted and didn't get a chance to say goodbye :( and :)

    We also had a mini cruise round Cambridgeshire in an effort to find a bite to eat, found ourselves back at 'THE FORUM' after six failed attempts, but I will leave Macca to tell that tale!!! #:-s

    Here is the evidence of an enjoyable day with loads & loads of laughs with some great peeps!!! :))

    A Great line up!

    Allan & Macca can't wait to go on the 'Stimulater'

    The Iconic Hurricame in flight! ^:)^

    Finally for all those on the GUESS THE CAR THREAD that were so upset about me posting a SCALE MODEL instead of a pic.
    Here is a REAL BMW IZETTA!!!

    A wonderful day, can't wait for the Norfolk Broads now!! :-bd

    It really was a great day even though I damaged my knee. Having difficulty walking today. As always there was good company and lots (and lots) of laughter. :))
    I took a few pics but have no idea how to get them on here so Richard is going to do it for me.
    We enjoyed the impromptu cruise around the cambs villages in the hunt for food which had an enjoyable ending.

    Hello all

    The day looked splendid. Despite our best attempts to overcome man/woman flu my gf and me gave in! We are still in bed as I tap, but obviously for the wrong reasons!!! Always next year......

    Hooray, does that means that you are coming to Wroxham, after all Caroline. I hope so, cos Liam said you can't get the time off for Silverstone and we've not got anything arranged for August yet!! We missed you and Michelle yesterday. :(
