Classic Car & Bike Breakfast Meet: Sun 13th May at the Black Swan, Ockham.

I'm going to go this Sunday, 13th May and I'll aim to get there for 8.30am.

I recommended this breakfast meet. It's monthly, on the second Sunday. I went in Feb and even though it was really cold there was a great turn out. They have a field too so as the months get warmer the turn out should get bigger and better.
There's interesting old cars, some newer expensive stuff and a handful of old motorbikes... and a booth selling tea, coffee and sausage, bacon & egg baps which are delicious.

Cars arrive from about 8.15, the car park was packed by 9.30am.
It's only a couple of miles from A3/M25 Junction 10. Anyone else fancy it?

I've updated this thread as I didn't make the December or January meet, but I'm going to go on Sunday. Anyone else up for it?

I'd be well up for this but unfortunately my car will be off the road having an engine tick sorted out.

Hopefully it will only be an adjustment but I fear it may need new tappets or valves :dope:

Maybe the next one

Hoping to be there for 8.30am, I'm convoying with a couple of local chums. I think it was quite busy last month, and it looks like it will be dry and sunny tomorrow so hopefully will be a good one.

A great morning. Some really interesting cars, and a wide variety, especially once the Mustangs and 911s had all moved on. Favourites were the NSU TT (used as a daily!) the Volvo 480, RX7, Scirocco and the Audi 100 (with the Porsche engine). I'm definitely going back next month.

Put it in your diary: Sunday 11th March

That MGB GT/coupe was neat, wonder if that was a factory prototype it is an early car.

I think it was a coachbuilt conversion Stan. It was interesting but as a car it would seem to offer neither the soft top benefits of the MGB or the practicality of the MGBGT. Ill post up some pix of the back shortly.

According to AROnline it's
"an MGB-based Jacques Coune Berlinette... launched at the Brussels Motor Show in January, 1964 and cost around two-thirds more than the standard MGB. A total of 56 cars were built during a production run which lasted two years but included just one right-hand drive version."
