Saab Autumn Meet - Warwick. Sat 11th Sept
« on: 22 August 2021, 11:36:28 AM »
The SOC have arranged an autumn meet at Hatton Country Park, nr. Warwick, for Sat 11th Sept.  10.00am to 4.30pm. 

The site has several attractions other than a field full of cars!  I believe that thereís a craft fair on at the same time.

I expect to be there. If my car is fixed in time, it will be the 9-5.  If not, I may be able to persuade SWMBO to take the train for her trip to Portsmouth, and I will come with the Carlsson.

Iíll be in the Carlsson. The 9-5 is off the road awaiting a new steering rack. :(

Sadly wrong direction for me as I had to drop off Mission Control at Gatwick - the drive home was SLLLLOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWWWW.

Helga seems to be showing another sign of old age - sloppy gear change lever - very difficult to select 3rd or 4th.

Oh no I missed this - I never even saw the post......not that the Aero is in tip top condition of course :D But he has just passed the MOT with only a faded number plate as an advisory (but don't mention the rattling a/c compressor, and minor rust  :o).

There were some very shiny cars there, as well as some ordinary ones.  I drove up on Friday afternoon and the sat nav sent me up the A41 through Aylesbury because the M25 was a carpark.  Unfortunately it rained as I went through the HS2 roadworks and I had to tour Leamington to fnd a car wash on the way to Hatton.

They are planning a repeat around the same time next year.

Would they ever hold a Saab day at the British Motor Museum / formerly the Heritage Centre at Gaydon?

They might.  But it depends on whether they charge a fee, and how much. 

We had a visit to the museum by our local group, but it wasn't any more than that.  We arranged a conducted tour on that occasion.
