    If you can get into it a lump hammer on rear drums helps free them As Andy said no drain in tank but remove the fuel line will get most of the fuel out Careful with the tank estate tanks are specific hatch saloon won't replace it You can disconnect fuel line on offside chassiss tail in engine bay (rubber to plastic and put the rubber end in a petdol can as a a start point to get her running And good luck on the purchase restoration
  4. i think you'll find you've doubled price but that would mean 2 cars entry to show the price at £25 is for the car for the 2 days £10 take that off your £50 and we agree
  5. just done it on their site kier sat to sun 1 night camping 2 days admission
  6. for you and the wife arriving Saturday going Sunday and camping on the Saturday night is £40 -20% if you book before end of December meaning it would be £32
  7. so if i got this right i travel up me the missus daughter and friends 4 of us its 4x £5 camping per night £20 its 4x £5 admission per day £20 and £5 per day for the car as i normally do friday saturday sunday that means £45 x 3 =£135 - discount if i book early if this is right i wont be attending as it not a cheap weekend and not being funny paying that money to sleep in a tent and S**t in a port-a-loo is beyond a joke the 45-50 we were paying for the car irrelevant of occupancy up to 4 people was acceptable but the new pricing if I have got it right is not and is beyond a joke for the facilitates to hand. Please tell me I have got it wrong Ok I was slightly wrong it is £115 for my group of 4 for the weekend just been on vboa site to go through a booking at this price I very much doubt i will be there so to all i met at this show Thanks for the memories and enjoy. Hopefully see you at some other events but i will not be attending this year at this cost are they trying to kill the show Reason mine is £20 less than i figured it to be is camping free for the sunday night
  8. think it was viva never really saw a car on there the stand immediately behind the tents on our pitch it will give us parking for non cavaliers and makes our stand a bit bigger
  9. can we have the viva club display stand as part of ours plz
  10. Holding off on the date as they were informed yesterday Silverstone is now that weekend as they moved it to avoid clashing with Wimbledon:)
  11. toilets on a sunday as the day went on got quite bad again due to users lack of toilet training and disregard for the facillites and others. People had stuck paper towel in urinals then used them manged to miss the bowl when taking a number 2 the posh loo's someone had found it comical to throw all the paper towels about and flood the sides. Suggestion for toilets have one on each club stand for that club down to them to maintain so more respect should be shown to it and others dotted about for general use Bit more clarity on costing and rules/regs in advance for events running e.g. track pricing the need for helmets and needing full arm coverings to take the car on the track Pricing for the weekend for 3 nights to me was acceptable but for an overnight stop £50/£60 seems steep (only stayed the 2 in the end due to needing RAC home ) otherwise wouldn't have left until today Some other stalls might have helped the Bus/Farm Shop Brilliant saved on tesco run for small bits and what you forgot to bring. Missing some of the other type stalls your sign shops; window tinters; wheel refurbers; the bric a brac/ nik nak stools for those not after car parts Like my missus the general merchandisers; Not going down the auto jumble side as we buy the parts up there will be less to be bought simples but was just the variety of different things missing my opinion. But overall i had a Brilliant Time and a good Laugh with friends already made and met some new faces and look forward to the next event The Planes taking off and landing during the day was added bonus of seeing some old school plane tech and stunt planes as a freebie on the weekend ; Might be a drawing point for Vboa to approach to see if a small show could be arranged to bring in outside of clubs footfall into the weekend . That is pretty much most of the negatives i can think of that i see for the weekend otherwise as said i had a good laugh and enjoyed myself
  12. So I do believe with a few tweaks that the weekend can be a really good event And our support the club can have an amazing social weekend
  13. Had fun as usual Saturday stand was a bit bare but about 10 cars on it but was a bit wet ground dried quick after rain. Sunday was hot lot more day visitors to stand and club members displaying for the day Venue has makings of a good show/site weather seemed to affect activites and numbers on saturday. But sunday with nice weather . more about stand was spacious for all to display and camp this year , At reps meating wasnt any big news of trouble or behaviour concerns just to make sure you didnt let the kids on the runway side of the fencing. Had spitfires bi-planes etc taking off and landing through out the day . So added bonus didn't take off early and were landed by early evening if we get behind our club Mk2 Cav then I belsieve we can make this a really good and enjoyable weekend for us as a Club to meet up and socialize Was nice to meet new faces this year and talk to Some. THANK YOU Andy King for club rep duties Sunday Morning at 830 AM my head really appreciated that. And the track was fun my thanks to the track organisers for their assistance and taking my Daughter Toni out after the cars little mishap
