Pride of Longbridge 2010

Image
The iconic entrance.

I got to Hopwood Park services pretty early and there were not many folks there.
Image

After a bit a few others turned up
Image

We had a chat and then follwed Chris to Longbridge and then set up camp on the field, as you can see there wasn't a cloud in the sky all day.

Chris rather took a fancy to this.

So did I to be honest.

Not a cloud in the sky and no aeroplanes, either. Looks like a good day out.

To whom it may concern :
Great meeting you all today,most certainly won`t remember all names and faces but nice to meet some of the 800 freaks from the board.
Shame I had to leave just before 2.00pm but had to be in Wolverhampton for a Swim gala for with the kids.
Will try and make Lichfield, ALL BEING WELL.

I wished I could have got to this but finaces have been thin on the ground too and I have a lot of work on now wich is good for my finaces. I have been quiet for quite some time and at the moment I have no 800 on the road but I am working on geting my friends Vitesse turbo fast back in black. Hopefully for the sum of painting a LDV van for him he is a man with a rater big rover colection too he has more of them than me now Lol. I will definatly be going to this next year as I should have things sorted with the Tickford!!

That's how I got there - lift with Dan and Lindsey from the M+MOC and Rover 200/400OC. :wink:

Was nice to meet whoever I met - new faces I know the names of include Mo, Slamm, and Ian (can't remember a; if he's on here and b; if he's using the name 'tommo' or 'Red Throbber'), and was good to see Chris and Rich C. again. My pics to follow at some point.

Looks better in the photo's, in real life it desparatley needs a respray :x
It was tidied up quick when I put it back on the road, patchy in places and covered in small dings, but now the weather's better I can start to improve it.
Lowering wise i'm not sure but would say yes about 40mm, not as low as Brads yesterday though :shock:
