So are we going to meet there or meet up for a spirited drive up the M40?

How about meeting up at Cherwell Valley Services at J10 M40/A43 then push up for a blast to J12 at Gaydon?

I went to Northampton on Saturday and just so you all know there are road works on the A34 between Oxford and J9 M40 @ 40mph all the way, and 50mph between J9 to J10 on the M40.

Just a head's up for those who may not know, but they're putting a speed cam on the eastbound carriageway of the M49 somewhere between Banbury and Oxford. Just after a great big road sign. Not sure if it's working or not (thank god!)

Ian R
18-03-06, 08:09
Thought the government said no new speed camera's where being put up ???

Class One
18-03-06, 08:23
There is a speed cam. Its on the NB M40 bteween J8-9 in the roadworks (50mph limit me thinks) its about 1.5 miles south from J9 (Bicester) for info.

For those travelling from south of the county you could leave the A34 at Weston-on the Green and take the B430 north which brings you out at J10/M40 by Cherwell services,

CJ
18-03-06, 09:24
Just to confirm that we will meet at 11.30 at the Cherwell services off Jnc. 10.

Chaps, I'm going to meet you all there. I've got to drop off my girlfriend at her parents place which is just up the road from Gaydon, where I'm also meeting her brother (nebiematt). But I don't think she'll appreciate the fun drive so we're going to make our own way over :(

18-03-06, 23:06
Sorry guys i am going to have to miss this one:( , parents 40th wedding anniversary, which is good apparently. My sister has organised a surprise sunday lunch with all the family, she said she told me, only going to by my mum a drink and give dad a medal:D

Maybe next time, have fun

Is it still cool for anyone to come along, and if so is anyone from the Basingstoke area heading up tomorrow. I will be heading off about 10.30 if anyone wants to meet up on the way to cherwell.

Give yourself plenty of time if you are coming up the A34. There is a lot of roadworks after Abingdon.

cainhead
19-03-06, 00:03
Yeah tell me about it, they seem to have been there for ages. Im a sales rep and use that road often, so its starting to anoy me. Any idea when they finish?

So what time are you guys planning to be at Gaydon then? 12:30?

Lez

Cherwell to Gaydon is 24 miles which ='s a conservative 24 mins, so I think 12:30 would seem reasonable if we leave Cherwell at midday.

CJ
19-03-06, 16:33
I just got back and wanted to say how much I enjoyed that little get together. Great to see a lot of the old faces (an in Doug's case that's very old) and some new guys too. I thought the venue was great with some nice old cars to look at and some nice grub on offer too and we also had the added benefit of being able to have a spirited drive along the M40.

Just got back, traffic was a nightmare!

Nice to catch up with a few old faces, and nice to meet some new ones too! That was a good location for a picture taking, should hopefully see some good ones posted up later - Cainhead and Tony were busy with the cameras!

Shame that James and Sabrina missed out, fingers crossed its nothing too serious...

What a pleasant way to spend a Sunday afternoon!

Good company, good location and a spirited drive! ;)

We should do that again, perhaps when the weather is warmer, and try and get a few extras.

Shame we gate crashed the hairdressers convention!! :p

James, hope the damage isn't terminal :( and that you and Sabrina got back ok.

I have afew pics, some of them contain someone who is definately older than me !!! ;)

Can't belive we didn't make it :cry: Car is not feeling well but will throw a few posts up later about it all. Think we're gonna go up there on a week day to see what we missed..... when the cars back. Nice to meet some new faces but would have been nicer to have had time to chat. Oh well :(

You gonna get alloys or are you content? :)

Thanks mate :) They're not standard colour, I did a bit of a home restore on them and used a standard Halfords silver paint and wheel lacquer. They’re a bit darker than stock ones but seems to look okay with the black paint.

I used to have Blitz wheels but managed to destroy them. I'm perfectly content with the stock ones, I just can't justify spending any more money on non-performance enhancing mods.. If I have £1.5k to spend it'll be spent on the engine or brakes, not styling. Same goes for the next £1.5.k... and the next, etc :D

The inside was slightly dissapointing due to it being smaller than we all expected. Therefore probably not as many pictures as you might expect. Still worth a visit though and an excellent venue for a meet.

Morning guys .......

Thanks for a great day, thoroughly enjoyed myself, albeit a little out gunned by the turbo boys :p which was well and truely brought home by my first blast in a TT (thanks class1 by the way ..... and the quick lesson on correct use of the stoppers :) )

As always great to meet some old friend, and put faces to names as well!!!!!

I still want that Lara Croft Land Rover though.

That's weird, when we sat in the breakdown office as they were filling up yesterday they had loads of pictures of that Mobil Metro (and another one) all round the room. I assumed that the garage had something to do with the car as there were so many of just them.
