Herts & Beds April Breakfast Meeting
The Herts & Beds members kicked off 2014 with a meeting at ‘Pistons at the Park’ on a gloomy Sunday morning in April.
We had a very respectable showing of nine E Types as well as the F Type Convertible of Ray Potter & his daughter Louise. My good friend Mick Howell brought his Series 3 Roadster from across the Essex border to join us. It was great to meet Neil & Jacqueline Whitehead who have put me in touch with their mechanic for a clutch replacement on my 64 FHC.
Local member Simon Thorpe originally thought that fellow members might like to meet up at the Park. Everyone involved at Pistons at the park were very impressed by the line of E Types.
Pistons at the park always throws up a few surprises & this year’s spring meeting was no exception. Myself & Richard Baxter were given a passenger ride in the new Tesla model S. Richard will I am sure back me up when I say ‘Wow’. Unbelievable power from the all electric car of the future.
I was really chuffed that members had turned out on a grey Sunday morning for a chat over a bacon roll & a cup of tea at Thremhall Park who organise the annual event. Thank you.
I will do my very best to organise some similar informal meetings throughout the year.
