View Full Version : Shropshire Meet?

22-08-05, 11:45 AM
Hi Guys (and Ladies)

I am moving from the Thames Valley up to Telford in Shropshire over the next two weeks and wondered if there was any sort of Cobra Club activity going on around the area. If so, could so-one let me know when & where?.

Many thanks

I dont know about anything cobra club related but if your in to american v8s my place on a saturday is like a clubhouse, paulgd is usually there (he makes the best brew in shropshire) and anyone else who is passing
so your welcome to call and drink tea and poke your nose into a few v8s
the other bonus is the more visitors i get the less tea i have to make the more work i get done

There is an exellent group that meets in Chester and I know that some Shropshire residents attend that. There is the West Mids meet at Chaddesley Corbett and in Walsall there are a few of us who do a few things together and you are welcome to join us.

There is no Shropshire meet as such, but there should be! I know of at least 7 Cobra owners within a 10 mile radius of Telford, plus at least 5 builds in progress. Perhaps we could sort something out? Unfortunately I sold my Cobra yersterday.:-( Still, there is always the next project!

Tim, I'm going to drop by tomorrow morning as I've got something for you to sign.

I dont know if you have moved yet, or if this is too far for you, but the walsal wanderers are getting together at the Swan With Two Necks at Longdon this coming Thursday at around 8/00pm. Longdon is on the A51 between Lichfield and Rugeley.

If there is sufficient interest I would be willing to organise a Local Meet for say Shropshire & north Staffordshire; as these areas seem to be on the extremities of all the nearby current areas; this could be either on a Sunday or weeknight.
Post on this thread or email me if you are interested and include your prefered time & day of meeting.

Hi Paul,

I guess the guys from Walsall would probably be interested..I would.

Hi Paul,
Count me in as well. I was going to contact you anyway as I'd like to see your folding hood.

I`ve had a word with our local engine "Guru" Tim Adams and he has agreed to do a Problem and answer morning once the season has finished; and prehaps another on carb setups and problems with a demo on the dyno etc.

I think it would be great if the Walsall gang and North Wales meet could join in with the workshops that hopefully we can arrange, with luck our local Dax Specialist Mr Brooks may be able to contribute; as his expertise on all things Dax is legendary.:D

David hopefully work permitting I`ll try and get up tomorrow night and have a chat.

Please if anyone has any other ideas please contact me;
