    Looks very tidy. Not gone far in its life as MJ's a Bedfordshire registration. Love the luggage area carpet. Is it carpet or some other material? Hope you decide to keep it as it would be good to have another estate in the area.
  2. Only just spotted this thread otherwise would have replied sooner.. Like the site; hopefully we'll be back there next year. Thought letting people who wanted to loose on the runway/taxiway (don't know which as our cars aren't up to it) was a great idea. Could have done with better signposting at the other entrances. We arrived at the far end of the airfield and didn't see any signage until the entrance before the show one. Obviously be less of a problem next year as we'll know where to go. Echo the comments about the state of the toilets. Marian was distinctly unimpressed about the lack of hand-washing facilities. Pity there were so few traders/auto-jumblers. That's one reason for coming to something like this. But all in, a good show and great to talk to a couple of other members (in between the showers).
  3. How odd: MOT it in January but then not tax it at the end of the month.
  4. Took our estate along. Three other Mk2 there. This is my favorite shot because it shows two estates together: Originally we had cars either side but one moved and the owner of the other estate moved to be next to ours. This is the original line up: Also a hatchback and a gorgeous convertible (no photo unfortunately).
  5. Hey, it's stopped raining, the sun's shining (briefly) and I can finally, after a couple of months, get some photos of B407BMC: Four-speed Base model (opposite end of the model spectrum to most people on this board), first registered in November 1984 (1985 model according to the VIN plate). Appears to be a genuine 33,700 miles, two previous owners, MOT'd, SORN'd since 2008 but drives well and getting better as things loosen up (the heater blower has stopped squeaking for example). Probably needs a service as the last one documented was in 2005 - the service book doesn't list a 29-year service so I'm not sure. I blame howmanyleft.com for this. Marian's got a 1995 Mk III Cavalier CDX auto: 1,300 built, 47 left. Then she decided she wanted something older as a restoration project and we found this locally (14 on the road - now 15 -and 22 SORN). Just waiting for some warmer weather to really start on it. I had a series of Mk I & II cavvy L's as company cars back in the day, several of which had 30k miles on the clock when they came to me so that's why I think the mileage is genuine, so distinct feeling of familiar surroundings. (Though still getting used to having a choke again!) Marian had the same feeling as she'd driven my D-reg I bought off the company (although she always preferred her Nova). Aim is to get some restoration done and drive to Billing this year. When I have a bit more time, I'll put something up on the Projects forum when time permits. Mick
