Hi,
Is this the post for "War and Peace". Bit confused as I read somewhere on this forum to register to stay informed about this event so I registered. Do I need to send a PM for this post as I am planning to come.
Morning Graham,

we will send email updates out once we have got more detailed information, but do keep an eye on the forum for more talk and discussion about the show.
Rob.

I happened to be speaking with Autosparks this morning and we were talking rubber grommets and I mentioned that it was 50 years ago this year that the lightweight came into service. The guy I was talking to was their advertising man, and he said he was more than happy to mention this club wanting to get 50 lightweights together at W&P. If the club wants this to happen then PM for me for their contact details.

Just a thought of advertising the vehicle, its age, and the club for nothing.
Regards
Richard

Long way from being ready, but fingers crossed I'll be there. Too damn cold to be in the garage at the moment to do fiddly bits like wiring in the 6 way switch.
