Well I received a reply from the organizers of this event and they sounded quite pleased to accept my entry of Thumper.  I'm thinking of turning it into a RUMCARS promotion, maybe setting up a little table with some literature etc if the situation lends its self to it.

Well this event is upon me this Saturday. They have sent fancy passes on ribbons that are worn around ones neck. An impressive list of supercars and classics are pledged to attend but the best part is that all entrants get breakfast on arrival and an all day buffet in the Golf club. So, if Thumper passes its MOT this week and the club actually lets me in it could be an experience. I'm certainly not going to eat for a couple of day before hand! :D

Not like the Golf course at Lyneham, near Shipton under Wychwood then. Who's members glowered at us as we used there practice pitch and putt for Schmitting. Golf is a bit like schmitting I think. Strange coves involved who think they are important and boss people about. Golf, just as good a game tooking dried dog turds with a club up the woods. Try and hit them where they came from, in one, is fun (a Beagle to those in the know), but so is anonymous 8 iron over the car park. You get just as many folk trying to tell you what to do and its free! Anyway, good luck with Essex Golf, it might be the breakthrough the game has been looking for. Though you could annoy them by arriving with a Croquet Mallet.

The original plan was to annoy them by arriving with an Isetta but it appears to have backfired, the plan that is, not the isetta! :D Golf has been really big here for decades with new coarses still springing up at an alarming rate. Afluence brings golf unfortunately. Cant see the facination myself but would still prefer to hit a ball than dog poo, each to his own!

Wirral rhyming slang. I like it.

Golf is way of getting out of shopping, isn't it?

Then again if it had not been for golf I would perhaps have not got into Microcars as my housemaster only had the Isetta I was allowed to work on because he could use it to go to and from and round the golf course with the bags on the back. At the same time there were three invalid trike parked in the area. One belonged to the Maths teachers father, I think. It was known as Pakki's Porsch, a deeply no PC nickname now. The other two were residents of sheltered houses across the road next to a bomb site where the cars were parked. So I might have predated Stuart in going all dew eyed over those but for golf.

This turned out to be a very very good event! Superbly organised and attracted some fabulous cars. Thumper was not the only micro there, a Schmitt put in an appearance along with a very interesting cycle car called a Twombly, its a narrow car with tandem seating dating from 1913. Google it.

The artist seems more famous than the car - but here it is :-

A pleasant looking car. I thought you were going to say Tamplin, a few of those about but this is new to me.
