    Chips & Mushy Peas is called a "Bag 'o Mixed" round here, Ian You're right of course, that doesn't spend the money as such. If Trentham Gardens were chosen, the Club "could" reimburse the admission fee to all the members who attended, in the same way they are subsidising next month's party. It's not something I would be in favour of personally, but it might make a difference to the number making the effort. Even if 50 cars attended, it would only cost the Club £225 (assuming 2016 prices). Just want to say it's the best show I've attended in the last 40 years. Where else can you combine a Classic Show, a separate Modified Car Clubs area, take a cruise around the lake, or buy designer clothing?. All in really beautiful surroundings. As for the vast majority of the money, I would vote for it being spent only when needed on "essentials".

    Well as I can be tempted that far by a bag of chips and some mushy peas I guess I am in, like I could say no. I can certainly bring an official BTR collecting bucket if someone else wants to carry it but you do have to ask for money or you just stand about like a lemon. B'stard lawyers do not suffer this affliction, but 4 hours over 2 days at JAE is about enough ta. I will do training if required tho. Cars that have travelled less then 200 miles are of course excluded from show and shine for laziness. Question. Apart from the S&S trophy this doesn't spend the money as such. We also need to think of something that will last the club for years. We have just got new pogoda marquee things , we have a Jenny hmmmmmmmmmmmmm still thinking.

    My suggestion is a "CCUK D-Day" to take place during the Summer of 2018. It should be held in the Midlands, for two reasons. One, so is fairly central in the UK, making it not a million miles from any of the British members. Two, the Midlands is Dean's "old stomping ground", and where Helen still resides. I'm suggesting we book a large plot at one of the two biggest Car Shows during the Summer, namely either C.I.T.P. Lichfield, or the Classic Show at Trentham Gardens in Stoke-on-Trent. Helen would of course be guest of honour, and her Gen 7 given pride of place on the Club Stand. I'm sure two or three of us would volunteer to spend some time making sure her Celica looks its best in the middle of the front row, you can count me in for one. Last year, entry to C.I.T.P. was free, with Trentham Gardens costing around £4.50 per car (the public are charged £15 each!) . Given a choice between the two, Trentham is the more attractive location, with its beautiful gardens, lake, and shopping centre combined with huge indoor garden centre. I know Helen would love the shops!. It is necessary to book early for the Stoke Show though, I'm talking like..February. Members could then add their names to the attendance list on the relevant thread, once they have booked and paid on the Trentham Show website, mentioning CCUK when booking, so we get own own plot. Whatever extra events as a tribute to Dean, to be held during the day, from fund raising in aid of cancer research (Daytona?), to having a "show 'n shine" competition, the club organising the awards of course. It would be a nice touch if a special award was presented on the day, before it went to its new home in Derby. Jimmylegs would be the perfect choice to be Show Coordinator on the day, responsible for parking on the Club Stand, and the relevant "show 'n shine" categories. Not only does Jimmy live in Stoke, but he also always attends C.I.T.P., and ran the stand there earlier this year. Many of you will know he is very experienced in car detailing, so would be a "no-brainer" in my opinion for the responsibilities above. An appearance from Amit, otherwise known as the legendary, ams..would also be appreciated, as both locations are not far from Brum. Dawn to be our contact between the Club and the Show organisers as usual, as well as liaising with Jimmy for things like the trophies. I think this would also be an opportunity to boost the club's profile next year with a really big turnout, as the forum has undoubtedly suffered in 2017, and new blood is needed. I'm sure this is something Dean would have been in favour of. Trentham is on Sunday 17th June. The date for C.I.T.P. is yet to be confirmed, but will be either the first, or second Sunday in July. Well, what do you think?, I've "kicked off"..what other ideas do YOU have?.

    If you are not familiar with Dean's story please look in the Club Chat forum "Back in hospital" thread. As a parting gesture and typical of the man he has left the club a legacy of £1000 towards equipment, events or possibly otherwise. The money has of course come via the lovely Helen to whom I am sure The Management will defer before using it but that is the question. How can we make the very best use of this money? Suggestions please. Get creative!

  14. The love affair is over

    the real love.?...would that be human or automotive.? I can honestly say I never fell out of love with my Celica...simply a change of need...and I still miss it.! Good luck....and Yuletide felicitations to you too.
  15. I thought I'd found the love of my life but it was just an affair. Time to say goodbye to the Celica and chase the real love of my life. With not as much as a consolation pen I'll say merry Christmas to all and anyone who's on the lookout for a gen5 give me a shout.
  16. Took delivery of something that includes these stickers......

  27. phase one of chasing bad, stumbly rough cold starts without any codes to help out.... 1. Replaced all 4 ignition coils with eBay cheapos (£56 for the full set). I must say the construction of these eBay coils is very good, exactly matching the OEM ones. 2 of the old coils were cracked severely all down their length toward the rubber boot with some possible burn marks on the outsides. I don't care if they don't last too long at £56 for a full set compared to £140 for a coil from Toyota or £90 from denso / blueprint EACH. Decided not to go second hand as I wanted to replace the whole set. 2. Changed plugs for those new-fangled Denso "Twin Tip" variety, but I used the regular copper plugs instead of anything exotic. Used K16TT part number, pre-gapped to 1.1mm as per spec. 3. Thoroughly cleaned spark plug holes to remove any moisture, oil traces and gunge 4. Re-seated MAF o-ring, just to be sure 5. Re-set chain tensioner 6. Pulled Crank sensor and cleaned the magnetic sensor tip, was pretty gungy. 7. Reset ECU Result: Engine much quieter. Idle smoother. Pickup considerably improved. 1st start from dead cold seems super quick and smooth again. VROOOOOOM noise much more pronounced. I'm not sure why, but the engine really is much quieter with the new coils - I suspect the old ones were seriously impaired from the cracks and causing some pretty big ignition lag timing corrections in the ECU leading to some more pronounced engine noise.
