    and a dig into the archives, in an effort to file older stuff that has been scanned but sitting around on the computer.

    I believe 1989 January 15th, but happy to be corrected. Apologies if these have been posted previously.

    This one could be from January 15 1989. Greg Lancaster (Volvo 360 No 5) and Bruce Manon (Ford RS Escort No 18)

    With the Mustang in this shot carrying the number 18 should mean that it can't be at the same meeting. Both the Mustang and the Falcon do not appear on the 15/1/89 programme. I will have to look further.

    In 2005, we were in the South Island for a surprise 60th birthday in Queenstown, but stayed on to drive the lower part of the south island, which just happened to have a race meeting on at Teretonga. After a week of temperatures in the early to mid 30s, the weather was far from kind at the track, so one day, I'd love to go back when the weather is better.

    What is interesting about this is that the V12 E Type had only been released a matter of a week or two before this appearance.

    I've tried chaindrive but no luck. One set where they wanted $33 postage! I'm putting out feelers for anyone with 3D drawing/printing skills to come up with a file, then I'll go out and buy a 3D printer and knock out a few sets!

    Tell me what you want Ray, there are those skills in the family, and a printer.

    I'll be in touch Rhys.

    Just managed to secure MIQ (quarantine) for my original planned return date from the UK, September 23rd, so my original plans stay, meaning a call at Curborough September 5th!

    It means I'll take even more photographs than usual whilst away, as 14 days in quarantine will give me some time to get stuck into the deleting, cropping, sorting and filing, which usually takes me about three months.

    So far, that means photographs at:

    Curborough
    Caister Museum (previously visited but photography was banned)
    Possibly the Silverstone experience and maybe a call at Bicester
    Three days of Goodwood
    Maybe a return to either Haynes, or Brooklands - still debating that.

    Whatever, the chance for several thousand pics and who knows, that may be my last opportunity to visit the UK as no plans for 2022 and just a cruise call in for 2023.

    Something completely different. My much loved dad was in some respects, a better diarist than Samuel Pepys!

    He used to assist at a local garage, and somehow or other, managed to record vehicles he'd probably filled with petrol or at least observed.

    This one page extract from his notebook shows that he started recording in 1930 (aged 15), to 1936.

    The detail is staggering and must have been transposed later.

    If anyone wants another indexed page scanning, just let me know.

    I hadn't even heard of a Cluley until I read this. Another forgotten Coventry make from 1920-1928.
