Sorry it's been quiet for the last few weeks but I was in hospital having an operation. Almost back to normal now, certainly well enough to drive the Superspec. Looking at the weather, this Sunday (26th) is not looking too bad so if the rain holds off I think I will potter along and take a picnic lunch to the Newark Autojumble Show - http://www.newarkautojumble.co.uk (Does what it says on the tin, lots of stalls, both amateur and professional, for car-related 'bits')
For those not familiar with this monthly event, it is held at the Newark Showground (NG24 2NY). Entrance fee is £7/head (Under 12s free) and £5 if you come in a kit car (+£7 for a passenger) So it's cheaper than a pub lunch
There are 2 entrances, one for tintops and one for classic/unusual/kit cars. They are shown on the attached map (From past experience, if it is busy it is quicker and easier to come in from the South to the East of the Showground rather than the via the A46 even if you are in a tintop)
I'll probably aim to get there about 11:00 if anyone fancies a day out. I'll make a final decision on Saturday and post it here.

Has this years show fallen by the wayside or is it a computer glitch.
Can't get any access online or on showground site.
I hope not it's the only time I get to meet the membership in the flesh.

This is a cracking show in the grounds of a Victorian Hall that was used for a secret listening station in World War 2 and the selection of cars is very wide.
Kerry and I have attended for the last couple of years, we are both booked in for this year.
HERE is a link to register on line, I have not entered as a club so to park together we will have to arrive together.
The link is to all shows run by Gemini Events who arrange Classic Motor Shows all over the country, please have a look you may want to attend one in your area.
