    Nice one, Damon. We'll reserve a room for you. Look out for emails. See you soon, Robin

    It's good to hear that you enjoyed the weekend, Simon. Thanks again for the great pictures. Glad you like the flag design... I guess we'll have to think about stickers!

    The 4th Annual P-15 Picnic in the UK (pictures)

    Suggestions are always welcome but this one's definitely going to remain as The P-15 Picnic. The three of us who organise it are all Plymouth owners and the initial concept was a meeting for P15s. We widened out the invitations after a (very reasonable) request from William (AKA Norman Pitkin) to include Chrysler and the other Mopar brands. There are plenty of broader car meets over here, and we wouldn't turn anyone away, but we all enjoy the exclusivity and scale of this gathering, and it's got a unique personal feel.

    P 15 add-on

    Couple more pictures...
  7. We just held our 4th Annual P-15 Picnic in England and were honoured to be joined by well known Plymouth enthusiasts Mark & Tracey Duggan and Greg & Kathy Gonya, who travelled from the US to spend the weekend with us. 35 people and a very nice selection of cars arrived at the hotel on Saturday and we enjoyed a drive out to Twinwood Airfield, where we had arranged a private group visit to the museum buildings and preserved control tower. Twinwood is an historic WW2 site, the airfield from where Glenn Miller departed for France on his ill-fated flight in December 1944. On Saturday evening we all shared a lovely dinner and drinks, rounded off with a light-hearted quiz, courtesy of William and Biddy. Sunday morning saw more cars meet us at the hotel before we left for a 30-minute cruise to Old Warden Aerodrome and The Shuttleworth Collection, which is one of the world's finest collections of airworthy vintage aircraft. The guided tours we took were highly informative and the range of aircraft, cars, motorcycles and other items on display is remarkable. The final tally of 46-48 Mopars was: 4x Plymouth Business Coupes 4x Plymouth Club Coupes 1x Plymouth 2-Door Sedan 1x Plymouth Convertible 1x DeSoto SP15 Club Coupe 1x Dodge 4-Door Sedan 1x Chrysler Club Coupe There was a nice selection of 'guest cars' too. Dean, Chris and I will announce details of next year's P-15 Picnic as soon as we can. Come and join us... Everyone's welcome! With thanks to Simon and Colin for the pictures...

    My son's 'new' car (OT)

    It was a rare visit from the sun! And it's true... my son is 18. How does that happen?!!!

    Henry will become more mechanically inclined now he owns this! He's happy to get stuck into technical stuff, and welcomes the challenge.

    My son's 'new' car (OT)

    I'm thrilled that my 18 year-old son has chosen to embrace the old car hobby. He's just bought his first car... a 1967 Triumph Herald 12/50. It's got an 1147cc (70 Cu In) 4-cylinder motor, front disc brakes and an incredible 25ft turning circle. And it's almost exactly the same size as a VW Beetle, so it's a perfect little car for running around the streets of London. We just grabbed this picture in the sunshine...

    Retro fiting Indicators

    My 18 year-old son is just about to collect his first car... a 1967 Triumph Herald It's another Michelotti classic. And we've found a beautiful example with only 38K on the clock!

    Retro fiting Indicators

    Hey Damon, I have the original white flashers at the front but have supplemented them with small amber flashers bolted to the bottom of the bumper guards. At the back, I fitted white 'reverse' lights but added amber bulbs. They have the 'right' period look and other cars seem to notice them easily. Hope this helps. Robin PS I had a look around your car at Colin's place... It's a real beauty!
