Luego's at Stoneleigh 2018

Ok people I received booking confirmation this week for the show. The usual stand has been allocated 27B.

Unfortunately I don't think I will be able to get there this year, I will probably have to be going south to take my wife to see her mother (now in a nursing home and forgetting lots). So I would like everyone who can to try and attend and have a good show please,

You would be cordially welcomed by any of the usual crew that will/might be there. Some used to have Luego's some still do have them. We are quite an informal group, unfortunately I won't be there as I have a family commitment that has occurred and I can't do both. The mother-in-law might not be around next year, Stoneleigh will.
If you come in through the exhibitors entrance and have a look in the guide that they might or might not sell you then look for stand 27B and follow the road ways to it.

Enjoy the show

Hopefully I'll be there on the Sunday. The weather is looking good for a change.

Correction. I'll now not be coming to Stoneleigh.

My alternator died today and after spending all afternoon looking for a replacement, I cannot find one in time for the show for less than 300 Tried the various scrap yards without success so a remanufactured on is now on order for much less that 300 but it will not arrive before Wednesday.

Really annoying as it looks like its going to be the sunniest weekend for many a year.

On the bright side I suppose, it went up in smoke but I caught it in time before it set fire to the car.

I now have a new alternator and the car has just got through its mot without any problems, so been out enjoying the sun.

The old alternator had all but caught fire and was releasing a lot of electrical fire type smoke. I took it to bits to see what the problem was and it turns out that a load of wasps had moved in over the winter. I don't know if that has anything to do with the failure, but I have discovered that toasted wasps don't look or smell very nice!
