  1. VBOA 2018 chat thread

    Things are definitely being run differently for next year. We had a VBOA meeting this morning and LMF booking goes live tomorrow, Monday. The site layout will change, whilst the autojumble will stay where it was everything else will change. We have not seen a plan but the concept is the arena in the middle with stands in concentric circles around it. It looks as if LMF underestimated most things this year, not unexpectedly as it was their first go at it, so next year there will be much more spent on security, toilets, layout, rubbish disposal etc. This means that for the first time, almost in living memory, the day rate is increasing to the next logical amount (to minimise cash handling) of £15 with a weekend rate of £25. Camping will be £21 a night. I will start a thread on it over the next few days.
  2. Does a calibra steering rack fit a mk2 cav ?

    Pump probably the same as well, but there could be an electric pump out there you could use.
  3. Does a calibra steering rack fit a mk2 cav ?

    They are definitely different, almost all the dimensions are out starting with the distance between the centrelines of the mounting brackets. Can put up a couple of pictures if you are interested.

    I'll compare mountings in the morning. Too bloody cold now! I doubt it tho'.

    But going on from what Frisco says, its down to you really whether you pay your way round here or not. Without those who contribute this site and its knowledge base would not be here. There is nowhere with the depth of knowledge on our cars like here. Not many Youtube videos out there reflecting the not many cars out there now. Some members have joined as soon as the found the site, helping to keep it there for the time they might need it, others join when they need it, perhaps for advice or parts or even to go to the Show. Others never get round to joining. We are also a pretty sociable bunch.

    Being a member also gets you access to the Vauxhall Trade Club parts and lubricants pricing if your local dealer is a member and if they have any parts! Main use now is for oil and oil filters. But, if you happen to have a newer Vauxhall as well.................

    OK if not "blunt" how about "to the point without the expected Irish baloney"
  8. VBOA 2018 chat thread

    Having closed all the 2017 threads this is the place for any comments on VBOA or the next show.
  9. If you guys want to continue this line of chat can you do it somewhere else please? I'll be deleting the O/T stuff.
  10. Hi all. We had the meeting in Luton in Luton this morning and thanks to those of you who gave feedback. We are at Market Harborough again next year, the vote was unanimous, probably the 14/15 July weekend. That will be confirmed over the next few days. A new show organising joint VBOA/LMF sub committee has been formed to spread the load of implementing the improvements, including stand sizes and location, based on this year's experiences. They will report back at the November VBOA meeting. LMF and VBOA have clearly taken on board many positive suggestions and LMF along with the landowner and MH District Council will be working to put in some permanent toilets/showers up near the entrance. hopefully in time for next year. A temporary toilet management team, better rubbish system (LMF said that they had seriously underestimated the amount and more security will also be in place. There will also be a wet weather plan rather than a 'seat of the pants' operation. The 'entertainment' tent will, as an experiment for one year, be licensed from Friday lunchtime to Sunday morning and until midnight on Saturday, the range and times of food will also be increased. This is due partly to cater for overseas visitors, who may not have stocked up on their way, as well as those who found carrying booze from the far corners of the site up to the tent a bit of an effort! The' road' system is to be modified, basically widened, more clearly marked and probably one-way. Also possibly a co-ordinated bus service into town. In other business this year's spares day was cancelled, subject to Vauxhall permission there is a plan to run one next year in conjunction with a day at the Heritage Museum in Luton. Next update in November.
  11. Please use this thread for general discussion and memories/pictures of the event. Plus any comments on this year's show and suggestions for next year's.
