Really enjoyed today, many thanks to all involved for making it a really good and successful meet.
I hope everyone got home safely.
I don't like signatures, they take up too much screen space.

Simply a brilliant day, many many thanks to Les, Bernard, Ian and Paul for all the help getting my powerfolds fitted, really pleased

Thanks for making a newcomer so welcome, great to put some faces to names at last

And for those of you who thought I was mad making the nigh on 400 mile round trip - quick calc shows I did 25mpg on the trip and considering was pretty slow through Birmingham/M42 until I hit the M40 I don't think thats too bad from the V8

Again huge thanks to all

See you at the next one!

Well what did I learn at my first Nano meet.....???

A hell of a lot actually, I sponged up lots of info on the cars (which I hope to remember when the time is right) and was able to listen in (and occasionally join in) on chats and advice with our cars.

The Community, Owners Club and 260 is populated by enthusiastic, incredibly friendly, patient and amazingly knowledgeable people, who all love the R75's and ZT's in all their forms and are happy to humour a muppet noob.

I was lucky enough to have a couple of essential bits and bobs done to my car, an unexpected T4 (Testbook version 4.Computer Diagnostic System) session and how to put postcodes in the satnav - thank you to all concerned it was really appreciated. Hopefully I will be abe to contribute more in future meets.

I had some useful chats about ICE etc. Seancars unit sounds great when it works. But I still like my highline - lots of upgrade potential.

Martin took me for a blast in his supercharged V8 ZT mmmmmmm me likies. *Biiiiiigg Grin and Drooool*

The burger van did excellent bacon and egg butties and sausage and egg baps *yummy*

Its unbelieveably quick to get a rear bumper off if you know how - I blinked and it was off - blimey. , even if we couldnt 'quite' get to the bottom of the mystery.

All in all I had a fantastic day out in the sun - thank you everyone (even got 38.2 ave mpg on my chilled drive back - not bad for a 2.5 Connie Auto - 72 on cruise and enjoy the comfort back to Reading)

Naturally I've come away with another shopping list of bits haha

Borrow a control unit to check parking sensors, rear brake check, walnut, a V8 ZT, a cdt, heated washers, headlamp washers, new boot and side pillar badges, and lots of other bits and bobs (luckily a few I have in hand) etc etc haha.

Decided NOT to get the engine covers painted.

Cant wait for the POL and National meet now to meet more new people and meet todays folks again '(but please dont be offended if I cant remember everyones names)

PS Trebor - I love the idea of cable tying a mini bottle of whiskey to my walking stick
Despite the high cost of living its still proving popular.

Planning is an unnatural process, much better to just get on with things, that way failure comes as a complete surprise instead of being preceeded by a period of worry and doubt

Certainly looks like it, I'd better do a bit of editing.

From the pics you fellows had a cracking day.
