We need pictures of your road trip! sounds ace! 

What the story on that i240 parked up? 

Also i nearly bought D600 DFK years ago and regret not buying it all the time, its one of my favorite cars! It now lives in Ireland in a very rich mans private collection. Shame it wont see the road that much as its there to be driven.

Nice there will be some other of this forum!

@ Danny:And we will take pics! After Castle Combe we drive back to the same hotel and Sunday we are going to enjoy 

England. Driving south and avoiding the highway, folowing the coastline direction Dover.

And yes, a car is made to drive with it. Sorry to read this i240 is eating dust.

Question for the PC-specialists there I want to get those pics on this forum:

Photobucket f****d us, so what photouploader can you all recommend me?

Got some pics of the Nürburgring (last augustus).

My wife has got a Canon Eos reflexphotocamera.

Such a big thing she always carry with her on such occasions, normally I upload 

the pics from her digital flash-card.

Yeh I think Hermans car should be on a display given he is driving it over from Europe which is brilliant! I think it sums up the club and modern attitudes now the lack of interest in showing car. As area rep of the North West it turned into a complete arse of a job =, me and Kev got so fed up we don't organise anything anymore! Next year will be mainly drives out and track days i think etc as I get fed up of seeing them parked up in a field!

Sadly I think you're right :( I think what hermans doing is brilliant too! I'm building mine to a concours standard but when finished it will be used and shown as much as possible rain of shine they weren't built to be ornaments!!!

Thanks for the nice comments, I appreciate this!

All started when I read Adam's post. And Simon looking for "400"s...

There was not much interest from OMOC, then we had to choose:  Cause for us we had to look for a hotel, booking the ferry and so on...

Things you 'v got to book early , so we took the chance. And I wanted to see those ex-groupe B cars, the Missus was also enthousiast.

Yet everything looks great! Some forum-members are also there so it will be nice to meet them.

And as we think the Club was not interested: I have a very busy life. Sometimes I have even no time to visit my parents or family cause of 

my professional life. So even the "400" club thinks I am lost while I am in the midle east on the border Israel/Libanon...

Tomorrow 'v got the day off, cleaning the "400" and preparing for a nice weekend! 

@ Simon: would be proud to be a part of your display!

Great day at castle Combe today, nice to see so many Manta 400's and Ascona's.

 

We had our Mantas in the car park, so hopefully we can get a stand next year. Lots of action and some proper retro and modern rally cars and drivers.

Hi All, some more pics Martine took. 

First I want to thank everybody for the warm welcom!  We had to hit the road at 06.00 AM so had no time to have breakfast.

Simon & Guy treated us with a full breakfast at the diner, great!

@Simon: Thanks for fitting me in, was great to be a part between those legends.
