Nobby gave up on his car when the gearbox went and sold it, probably too difficult with his disability.

I'm up for any type of get together, it's more a case of when rather than what. Brexit permitting I'll be in Spain from end of May until mid July. Outside of that period I'll try to get to most things. I enjoyed the Haynes Museam meet organised by Nobby but distance and fog meant I arrived much later than anticipated. I'm happy to provide the venue for a spanner and sponge type meeting if other members fancy a trip to Cardiff.

Good idea to have something in S Wales, bearing in mind it's now free get in and out over the bridge.

South Wales Classic Car Club Annual Show takes place on May 19 in Cardiff if anyone is interested. I'll be there as a member of that club and as my S is currently off the road I'll be in the Jag but it would be good to see some 924s. As Stan points out you can come to Wales for free now!
