    August

    Hi to you all,
    July’s meet at the Five Bells Inn, Wrentham looked to coincide with a number of other local events. Were you at the Latitude Festival just down the road? Or perhaps you were busy combining or gathering in your summer crops?
    Nevertheless, Steve made the trip from home across the expanse of Suffolk to the pub and enjoyed a swift half of one of Adnams’ foaming brews. The food looked very appetising too, as confirmed by Mark and Clare (who dropped by from just along the road).
    As is the norm, a good old natter ensued, including the practicality of rehoming cockerels and a general review of the current state of the UK kit car industry. The availability of sound donor vehicles with suitable rear wheel drive architecture is in the decline. In fact, some of the donor vehicles that were previously considered basket cases could now be sought after within the ‘original vehicle’ interest groups for restoration or donors of parts to keep original cars on the road. Remember those early Pilgrims with Cortina running gear? Old Duttons based upon Escort parts? With some older kit cars coming to the end of their useful lives, the original source donor parts can sometimes find their way back to keeping an old original vehicle roadworthy.
    Somewhere in the bowels of our garage we have a Ford Sierra steering column – removed from the Dax when we moved to a Corsa EPAS system. Maybe an original Sierra owner would be interested in it to give their pride and joy on the road?
    We suspect a lot of you are enjoying your summer holiday. Also, this month there are a number of different events on throughout the region so it may be prudent to ‘have a month off’.
    So, as a suggestion for a Cobra related outing, for this month’s meet on Sunday 18th August there is –

    • Stonham Barns Classic Car Show – Pettaugh Road, Stonham Aspal, IP14 6AT
    • Classic & Vintage Car Show - Hedingham Castle, CO9 3DJ



    We’ll continue to populate the ‘3rd Sunday’ calendar with interesting pubs to visit in our usual ‘On Tour’ format.
    If you have a recommendation or a favourite venue, or know of any worthwhile events in 2019, please let us know.
    September 2019 - East Suffolk
    October 2019 - West Norfolk
    November 2019 - East Norfolk

    etc.

    Hi Steve although I’ve been on the forum for a while the DAX is near complete apart from paint so, I’m hoping to get out for a spin and was wondering where your next ea meet is likely to be? I’ll make sure my breakdown cover is in place but would love to get out for the 1st time?

    Hi Mark,
    September's 3rd Sunday also coincides with Goodwood Revival which is where myself and a number of others will be. However, we're going to put together the next newsletter in the next couple of days and will look for somewhere in the East Suffolk area for September (possibly Hare and Hounds, Leavenheath)
