Nice cars and terrible coffee
« on: July 31, 2021, 15:06:55 »
Had a lovely get together at Brooklands this morning. Hopefully current MB cars are better than their coffee. Thank you Katie for it but your choice of tea was wise

Thanks to Ray for pulling us together and it was lovely to see some old friends and familiar cars as well as some new faces and their cars.

You’re welcome, tea is usually a safe bet, little to get wrong - tea bag-hot water - milk!!

With thanks to Dene for letting me take photos of his under dash panels so I know which screw holes I need to aim for!

And of course Ray for his fabulous organisational skills!!

Thanks to everyone who came to my 'Pagoda Gathering' this morning.
16 Pagodas, warm dry weather, meeting new friends catching up with old friends, perfect.
Having trouble uploading photos at the moment, just an old dinasaur !
