REALLY RETRO SHOW/CLUB MEET 24th June 2018
#1
From an email received:



The Really Retro and Classic Car Show is confirmed for Sunday 24th June 2018 and is open to all cars from 1900 to 1999 with a focus upon those motors from 1960 to 1980. Feel free to take a brief look at our website; www.reallyretroshow.com

We hope you can round up a few members for a club stand, it is a truly a fantastic day out and unlike other shows we don't have to cancel because of soggy grass!  Please see attached invitation letter, guide to booking and traditional booking form should you choose to confirm your attendance by post.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Kind Regards
Paul Jeffries

Could do Chris, looks a good event.
I doubt #2292 will be finished in time though, but you never know - hoping to order the cladding for the garage
this week, so fingers crossed we'll have it finished before Xmas, which will finally give us somewhere dry to work on
the cars rather then out on the driveway.

The steel frame was delivered a year ago today Chris, we've saved up enough to order the steel side cladding sheets tomorrow.

lol Dan - mind you, will your DeLorean be finished in time for next year? I doubt mine will be, I might end up taking
my 1989 Cavalier, or if they'll allow it, the Avantime Smile

My DeLorean will be finished for the 40th, in 2021. I've no means to finish it in the next 2/3 years and I don't want to rush it. It was always a slow burn, and now even slower due to a change in circumstance. It will get done, but assume it won't see daylight for years.

Sorry to hear that Dan, but things change......A quick spray with Wd40 or similar will ensure that nothing deteriorates whilst in hibernation.

There's nothing to be sorry about; it was always the plan, but most recently things like jobs have become less certain, so planning for the future over restoring a car, takes prescendance. It'll get it done, and I'm enjoying it. It just means a few months between bigger jobs rather than a more "monthly" approach to spending.

The question is; what do car restorers DO when they finish? They tend to sell and restart.. so I'll take my time. This is a keeper and more pointedly, DMC need to pull their finger out on drivetrains so I have more options on running gear as I'm still undecided on whether to rebuild my PRV. Wink

Anyway, that was WAY off topic! Big Grin

well, keeping off topic, why don't you wait and see how my 24v conversion goes. Phill and I will be doing this ourselves, and taking our time, and documenting
everything carefully. If it works out, which we think it will, as we've been chatting to a guy who's also looking at UN1 options on a
VW and has CAD drawings, then it may be a route for you to think of if you want to 'future proof' the car.
As I've said, the 24v engine that I'm using, is what the PRV evolved into, so its the most natural choice of engine IMO.

Anyway, back 'On topic', shall we consider this as a Club event for next year?

My current plan (sorry, still off topic) is to complete the chassis, remate the body (not bolted, just mated), then start cosmetics whilst "keeping an eye" on engine stuff. I'll get the gearbox rebuilt in the meantime - I don't intend to change that.

So yes, I'll be watching your conversion closely. I will say that I know my block is good, so even if I don't refit it, the engine will eventually be rebuilt (even after the car is done) as a working D engine will always be worth something to someone.

I think Really Retro Show should be considered, we are about 170 miles away, so if we came would probably want to stay overnight on Saturday somewhere.
