Thanks Ray...

Great site...sounds like a smashing event. My wife and I marked our calendars for next year. If we do vacation then...(we usually visit England in April)...we'll spot you a few pints at
the long handles...and perhaps have a go at skittles!!!
Best regards,

We usually make our pilgrimages in the Fall or early Spring....don't mind the weather, just the rest of the tourists....its my only time to drive a new MG for any length of time & I prefer backroads with little traffic!

Been a while since I have been back..........don't know how the wife would react to me visiting classic car shows while we were there though. graemlins/nonod.gif

ah, Steve, young son...its time for me to impart 'Tony's philosophy for a long & successful marriage' upon you....your wife's not within seeing/hearing distance of your monitor, is she?

Here tis: She can never say 'no' to you if you never say 'no' to her!

"Dear, I saw the most beautiful dress."
"Well, darling let's go get it."
"Sweetheart, mom wants to come by for a visit."
"Baby, why wait, I''ll just go get her right now."

Somewhere down the road you can then say, "Hey, kiddo, there's this neat car museum I want to visit."
...you know her answer already!

...its worked for me for 33 years! (That & I'm always wrong if she incorrect to be correct about anything! "You're right, I have no idea why I'm so obsessed with those ridiculous little cars. Can you forgive me?")
