Re: V8 Saloon Front Springs

Thanks for that confirmation tjt77 - have never dealt with Martin Robey but know them by reputation.

V8 Saloon Front Springs

I think my earlier post got lost in the forum downtime, although there were a couple of replies. It appears that the two main suppliers of V8 Saloon parts are not supplying the correct front springs. I am assured that the Daimler ones should have six and a half coils compared to seven and a half for...

Re: Recovery services - any good for old cars?

I think RH breakdown cover means that you have to do the organising yourself. If you haven't got a local number to phone you would have to walk to the nearest house or pub and get a recommendation to phone. RH would then cover the cost later. A recovery service is more convenient. I have RH cover a...

Re: SP250 Spa Classic Trip 2019

The initial club booking will be made in the next few days for circuit entry tickets, club parking passes and track laps.

If you are interested and haven’t yet advised me, please let me know by tomorrow, Friday 8/2.

We can make additional bookings up to late March, if needed though.

Thanks

If you do one for 2020 is there any chance of an app for my mobile. 8-)
Hadn’t thought if going down that route Colin, but will check it out. Have you seen any others done in this way?

Re: 2019 SP250 Calendar

If you have any photos you would like to be considered for next year’s calendar, please email me a digital copy, ideally by the end of August. Alan You must have quite a collection built up over the years so why not have a look at the ones you didn't use? [Hint, hint] Good point John - will do! Alan

Re: 2019 SP250 Calendar

I am delighted that all of the 2019 SP250 calendars have now been sold and this has produced a profit of £560 for the pasSPort fund which will be passed on to Laurence Jones/Glyn Overy. Thanks to everyone who submitted photos to produce the final result, and of course to all of you who bought a cale...

Re: Daimler SP250 Owners Club

Re: 2019 SP250 Calendar

I have now sold all of the wall calendars but have had two more requests for them. Lavenham Press can do a supplementary print run but I need a minimum order of at least 10 to make it worthwhile. If anyone else wants a wall version can you let me know by Tuesday 8th January. I still have 6 desk cale...
