welcome to a fantastic club, you will not be short of advice on here. a 14 is a very nice car and will make you stand out from the crowd. give us some pics and let those of us in the know help you along the path to motoring pleasure. anyway at least I'm not the only member to be up storm watching? ton

Tony for once the forecast about our weather must be correct as we are both sides of the country, still blowing here but short of 80MPH but enough to stop Radio Norfolk going out in the car.
So not Lanchester weather today or Daimler or BSA.

I usually go to the Shepton Mallet Footman James Show yesterday or today but yesterday I had other things to do and today it is a bit blowy in the west country. I haven't heard that JT7196 Alan has set up a display there this year so I expect to meet him at later west country shows. Since you are in Tiverton, Andy, try to get to Sherborne Castle, Shepton Mallet or Sherborne School shows which Alan is normally at with a Club display and often with his LA11.

Hi John, no decided to give it a rest this time, it not a good time to put on a classic car show, lost count of the amount of times I’ve spent many hours cleaning my “Eleven”:only to get it filthy again going to Shepton at this time of the year !!!

Cheers Al

I have fully restored a lj200 and hopefully it will be out and about this year, I have gained a bit of knowledge about the make and would be happy to try and help you with any questions

Thank you Graham nice to meet you on here well I must say I do have a few questions. My front brakes seem to bind well full on... however they do ease off when I move the car. I have noticed that there are an extra engine mountings fitted forward of the originals ones? have a great day and happy motoring :D :D
