    Made lots of new friends, put faces to forum names and saw some lovely zeds.
    Heres to next year!

    Had a great day, thanks to those who showed up for the mini cruise even though the first 20 minutes we must have averaged all of 20mph! Tractor, newly dressed road, Combine Harvester then another Tractor!
    Been lovely to see some faces we've not seen in over a year, and a nice surprise to see @Mnbrennan and @BMBabe who I hadn't realised were attending. Lovely to see @Rally who I've not seen in ages. Even @Mark Gutteridge had blown the dust off!!
    A few pics of the day:

    Mike and Sandys new wheels and I have to say it's bloody lovely and a very nice place to be sat. 20190818_111435.jpg


    You don't see this out very often! 20190818_135721.jpg

    Always shining Martin. :thumbsup:

    Nope lol! Spent more time grabbing than looking at the cars but for me Zedfest is about catching up with peeps I don't see often.

    I popped down in my van and spent some time with @koolflyer . Was called away and returned in the M for all of ten minutes. Then, thanks to the joys of being on call, I had to get back to the other side of Nottingham in just over 20 minutes.

    Kegworth to Ratcliffe-on-Soar is a fun short-cut to Remembrance Way :whistle:.

    Looks a good turn out shame the zed played up this morning. I did get out though to give it a quick 3 hour run round the peaks to loosen it up before our Euro Trip.

    Hardly took any pictures but had to have some of this one. Mike kindly let me have a sit in it, soooo comfortable.
    Beautiful car and the old banger parked next but one was quite nice too.;)

    I think that BMW finally got the size and shape of their soft top spot on, it looks like part of the design rather than an add on.
