LobB house he is offering a free scrapping scheme for diesels. On a serious note. I wasn't aware such a festival existed. Where is it? Any link?

How was Manila? Did you go to Tagatay? Volcano sniffing?

It's at Gaydon through the U.K. BMW club. The ticket was £17 for a non-membership and managed to get in within the display run.

Manila was something else. The flight was so long, but I got upgraded both ways so can't complain. I did have a couple of trips booked but one for cancelled due to the weather and floods. I visited old Manila; Fort Santiago was lovely. Possibly going back later this year when it's not rainy season.

I could make that date. Sounds like another opportunity for a Forum meet.

Went a couple of years ago.
It gets busy, and all the normal parking is taken over with the show.
Signs for parking take you round to the JLR site, 10min walk back.


The museum is well worth a trip on it's own though.

We're having a stand there, next to our Surrey dealer Renaissance, with some AC Schnitzer cars.

Free hugs
