Dont know what your moaning about Richard, I dont even want to think about what the fuel is going to cost me! I just heard that Mike plant is Ill and cant come with me so I cant rush him for half the fuel costs this time. Oh well, as John Gregson said to his missus in Genevieve  after rowing with her the night before the Brighton run...." I'll make the run alone" spoken in a martyristic tone! :D

What a good National show up at Malvern. We spent the Saturday in the company of James May of Top gear fame. He even participated in the road run in a TG500! More details and photo's to follow I'm sure.

When I owned my yellow schmitt I often thought of changing the trim to the deluxe with the second colour to the lower parts but could never think of a colour that would suit the yellow. I saw this car at the national and asked the owner how he came up with such a good colour combination, he said I got the idea from a Lidl's carrier bag!

Nice car, not sure about the combination, though I'm guessing the custard yellow's attributed to the paleness of the photo, the same car look brighter in the the James May pic above, I think I prefer the two tone of Malcolm's TG, looked like a grand day out was had by all though.

I see Mr May had to take the glamour micro could'n't be a Bond or something similar!
