 Bags I the tonnocks, becuse today I've at last (technically) completed doing up the Wrigley Electric Chair!  ;D  As we're on about rarity (as usual) I'll just remind everyone that this will be one of the weekend's rarer little visitors, for after all, it's the only known complete example out of one & a half examples known in total, and this will be it's first public apperance for forty years.   :o   I've got my seat for the cinagramatic presentation Saturday night, how about you?....   ;)


 Before;  October 2008


 After;   10th July 2009

Only one weekend to go! 
We still need cars, come on guys let's be having you.
Owing to the fact that several people have had to drop out there are only 45 cars to be displayed.
WE NEED YOU AND YOUR CAR

 Don't worry Jean, the ICR looks set to save the day & make up the numbers as me & Ian shall be dragging a very derilict one out of a hedge in Marden, just up the road from Staplehurst on the Friday afternoon, following a call out of the blue yesterday from its owner who has been ordered by his wife to clear some his projects....    :)  It all worked out rather well really, as regards timescale & location.  It'll be on the waggon along with all our other stuff due to hit School House Farm sometime Friday afternoon....    ;D   :-*

Stuart
           The one you and Ian are dragging out the hedge - It's not the Invacar that I "left" behind at Goodwood is it?

Dear Cuscus 47

an AC all weather regardless of if it running or not will be very welcome. There will be many vehicles that will not be road worthy but of considerable interest to visitors. Get it registered and bring it along.

Dear Bob and Rob

I do hope that was a long distance Air Kiss with not too much make up (lip stick).

Ian,
Is the AC All Weather the "long lost Mk 1" that surfaced in 2004?

Bingo.   ;D

I had been negotiating since 2007 with the previous owner and in May he conceded to let me have it.  ;D

I will be picking it up on the way to Jean's.   8)

It's been some hard yacker, but worthwhile.   ;D ;D ;D

Just under 5 days to go

The weather forecast for Saturday is Overcast, but for Sunday will be clear skies so be prepared for heat and sun,

We look forward to seeing you all, with your very rare microcars, Remember that there will be food and drink available (at very reasonable prices) and plenty of Microcar goodies to buy and win.

For those of you that are Marshals, please arrive as early as you can as there is lots to do before anybody arrives, and there will be plenty of clearing up after they have gone.

Do not forget to bring some chairs to sit on and a Gazebo or Umbrella.

See you all over the weekend

Chris Thomas

The weather looks set for improvement, there is no sign of Warwick Festival being cancelled, so have a great time one and all, and wish I could be there, but hope to see lots of lovely pixs here soon.
