  1. Hi Ollie and everyone we are back now having done over 2400 miles, and all the driving up and down the mountains caused Skippy's wheels nearly to come off down the Alps, we caught the loosened bolts just in time! ha!. I thought it was something terminal and that he would be coming home on a trailer, but it was sort of good that it was just his wheel bolts. Was a great trip and thanks to Karen for navigating through some very challenging areas. We went round the Monaco circuit a couple of times which was absolutely brilliant. On the way down to Monaco we visited the Millau Bridge, then Marseille, St Tropez, Cannes, Nice, and finally stopped in Monaco for a rest before setting off on our way back which we did going into Italy and up down the Alps eventually arriving in Gevene on the border of France and Switzerland. We went over the highest paved road in the alps which was something like 2800m high and we actaully had some snow/sleet whilst we were up there and it was freezing compared to the weather we had left in Monaco. Whilst in Monaco we had an apartment right opposite all the big yatchs and it was amazing to see how the other half live especially when one of them was sold for 49 million dollars! We went through 8 countries in the end and arrived home last Saturday. Apart from the drive back after the Alps we had the roofs down most of the time and it was brilliant weather. I will try and upload some piccies and video when I get a moment.
  2. There is a car show at the Trinity Park Suffolk Show Ground near Ipswich on Sunday 24th August. Ollie suggested that I put up a post to see if anyone else is interested. It is a NASC show, but it has a retro section and they said we could attend. The entry is £10 per car and more details are on the following link. A few of us are intending on meeting at the Shepherd and Dog pub car park which is on the old Felixstowe Road at 9am Sunday, so if anyone else is interested and wants to join us please let me know. I can be contacted on 07759 740342. Thanks Avril http://www.rodandcustom.co.uk/events-nationals.html

  6. hi Tony, there is a guy in Suffolk who did Skippy's roof and its now over 10years old and still going well. That might be a bit far for you though. http://www.creaseycartrimmers.co.uk/page3.htm Thanks Avril
