Hi all,
just in case anyone's interested I thought I'd post a few ideas for meeting up as a group.

Pencoed (near Bridgend) Classic Car Show - Sunday 9th May 2010
A great little show run by South Wales Classic Car Club for charity.
Free entry before the 1st April or £10 on the day.
If there's a group of us to park together we'd need to arrive together. Although Club Stands can be arranged in advance.

30th Vintage & Specialist Rally at Tredegar House (Newport) - Sunday 13th June 2010
An excellent show with a big turn out usually.
Also there's aclassic car run the day before about 130 miles (cost £25).
Free entry before 8th March, on the day £20.
Club stand available before 9th March.
All in aid of Leukaemia Research.

And of course, Stoneleigh, Le Mans, Le Mans Classic, Silverstone classic.

many thanks for the information of local meets. Get in touch if you like as I am in Newport Area so would be good to get together with a couple of members in the area soon.

Hi all.
good to see some interest in the area.:D
Not sure when it is but of course there's Singleton Parrk in Swansea too.
There's a nice little show at Coleford in the forest of Dean too. The whole town becomes a classic car show we had about 8 Cobs last time I went a couple of years back.:D
The Gloucester and Wilts bunch normally go along too.
Any other ideas?
I did try and get a S. Wales group together once before but didn't get much help from the Club back then. Maybe another attempt is in order.
Anyone volunteering to be an organizer??:rolleyes:

Hi Chris.
last time I tried I couldn't get a members contact list for the area for love nor money.
After many requests at Stoneleigh etc. I gave up in the end.:mad:
Any chance???

Singleton Park is 2nd May 2010 (Bank Holiday Monday)

Gents...Just a thought..It would be good to meet one weekend somewhere in the middle just to check out who is about in the area...why wait for a Show?
On another note: can someone advise what is the best way to deal with an unsightly and annoying stone chip that has just appeared on my drivers side right front wing smack on top of the beautiful curvature...god knows how that one happened. The white fibreglass shows through and I know its there. Also got a couple of nicks down by the drivers side rear wing behind the ally protectors. Cobra is a Jag Blue pretty close to the Shelby colour. Advice much appreciated.

Hi Franc, do you have a touch up stick?
if so you need to keep building up the chip with multiple coats of paint letting each one harden.
Eventually with enough coats you will be able to add a couple of coats of clear laquer and polish it back.
I had the the same problem the day after I had mine resprayed :o

BTW mines Jaguar Agean Blue.

I normally put my Cob on the road 1st April as I live in the sticks my local roads are always covered in SH1T!:grin:

It looks like I've volunteered to start a South Wales group:o

I'll be getting in touch when I get some contact details for local members. :)

Hi Kev & Frank & all
Nice to see someone willing to take the lead, I would enjoy any meets arranged.
I am much too eccentric & muddly to take up any role other than participant clown!
an example of this, is, using my laptop & desktop on the same desk, I sometimes get the mouses (Mice?) mixed up, the other day whilst eating my lunch, I was trying to scroll the forum using a current bun.:confused:

small chips are a nuisance, especially small roads in Wales, I fitted some blue Halfords mudflaps to my front wheels, as my stonegaurds had become peppered & small stones deflected off sidepipes were chipping paintwork.

As the newly appointed South Wales Rep. :rolleyes:
I thought I'd ask for some suggestions for meeting points and rides out
I suspect a roving meet will be in order as we have such a large area.
Basically the M4 corridor from the Severn Bridge to Camarthen.
I have a few ideas already but please fire away. :)

Thanks Kev,

Just need a colour match so I will ring previous owner John and start the process. Thanks again for your help.
