  1. Accident damage.

    Another one bites the dust
  2. Dean 68 In Memoriam

    As I get the impression this thread runs the risk of.."dying a death", I'm posting a link to Gemini events for 2018, as bookings are now being taken. I've now ordered a Vehicle Pass for Trentham, the cost this year being £5 per vehicle, plus a 50p booking fee. This event is VERY popular, and understandably so, so don't hang about if you want to show your ride. https://www.classicmotorshows.co.uk/
  3. anyone experienced this before

    Was it Toyota OAT coolant three years ago?.
  4. Dean 68 In Memoriam

    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".
  5. Dean 68 In Memoriam

    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?.

    I have visions of you putting an Ad. in the local paper.. "New Stud Wanted"
  10. can not believe mr T prices sometimes

    Yes, that's for one. As per the right hand side of the page, you need to match the Part No. with your existing struts, as they offer struts for both with, or without a spoiler on the tailgate (as do Toyota).

    They do an excellent range of trolley jacks too

  14. Celica sales figures

    My apologies..I wasn't referring to hot hatches as competition, although of course they are, and really should have been a bit more specific. What I meant was, most new car buyers will buy a coupe because it's a new model, and fashionable to be seen driving a new shape version. Once that shape has been around for two or three years, the same new coupe buyers are then in the market for something only recently made available.
