Dear Bob

The actual thought going through my brain was " Now we have got to pack up everything before the rain comes down" which thankfully it did not.

If I had tryed to get a car ready for the show, get it there, go on the road run and get it back, I would not have been able to manage the event as I did.

Perhaps next time Bob, if you organise the event, I will try and bring along the microcar that I have at that time.

Thanks again for your support.

Chris Thomas

I had a fine time. 

Just hope my lungs have recovered from a certain Nobels emissions!
"Men of worth act like men of worth, and men of genius, who produce
things beautiful and excellent, shine forth far better when other people
praise them than when they boast so confidently of their own achievements."

Hi Perry, yes, my lungs felt a bit choked up after the run too. I don't think the Nobel was the only culprit though, the cloud of smoke we all left behind us was a joint effort. On the way back Planty and I were at the back of the convoy and got the full benefit of all the smoke! What an excellent cream tea we had at Headcorn though! Oh the memories! Cough cough!!

Don't worry jean, Bob had 2, (one for each of his cars I guess) but he let me have one of the two, so unless it's different from the yellow one, I'm OK.

Found in the dark corner of our "Little Chef" a fold up garden seat.  I thought it belonged to Malcolm and Sheila but they tell me they have their full quota!  Please let me know if you are a seat short.  Jean

In order to make the pictures of the cars  on the Celebration web site  more interesting to those folk who are not so good at recognising the more unusual microcars may I suggest that each owner whose car is featured adds it's Rum No., Make and Model, year of manufacture and engine size.  This can be done very easily by clicking on to' add comment'.  I have taken the liberty of adding these details to two of the cars whose owners do not have access to the internet, I do you agree it is a good idea.    JEAN

.Enjoyed the very late night beer drinking too ...even after the bar closed  ;D ;D


 Ah yes, such were the high jinks that developed after dark following an unholy hook-up of the combined might of the Peel Mafia & the ICR...   ;)  Just remember though Peel fans, the ICR holds the incrimanating blackmailable photos of just WHO was raiding the bar....  


 Just when you thought it was safe!...  Here is that very photo....   ;D  I hereby point out that the left-hand side of the photo is a stitch-up! That's not my hand! I know my hand anywhere & that's not it!!!!!     :o  Bonus points to those who can idenitfy the other misicrents.   ;)
