Thanks, it makes a change me driving a car instead of fixing it!

Well... I managed to drive the Spitfire to church this morning... but then spent the afternoon putting the gearbox back in the GT6. So you're not alone.

Just a few. Nice day out . About 170 miles done. Roughly 40mpg.

This may not be a total interloper.

I was reading recently (don't ask why) that the Reliant engine is based on a Chinese version of the Standard SC engine that we know and love 🙂

Did they park the opposite way to you so that your ar*e hung out on purpose, just to put you in your place! 

Yes, we were parked first and then surrounded. I bet as soon as we moved they filled the gap for there photo opertunities! Lots of classics of all sorts driving around.

Is that the Thorpe Abbots 100th Bomb Group museum?    Visited in the 80's, got goosebumps standing on the control tower platform, imagining those B17's limping home.

There was a programme way back in the 70's, called 'If there are ghosts, they should be here', documenting the East Anglian airfields. Wish I could see it again.

I learnt to drive (let loose really) on an old airfield in Suffolk. Was originally home to the 447th bomb group.
