Welcome to the Classic Car Group.

Hi,

 

Wonder if the SF could help out here.

 

We are holding a vintage day in the Peak District village of Tideswell on Sunday 22th July to coincide with our Wakes and Well dressing week and the arrival of 800 cyclists on vintage bikes on the first ever L’Éroica Brittanica, a celebration of food, culture and cycling. We have also got a rather special fly past that day too.

 

There will be live music throughout the day too.

 

We hoping to encourage owners of vintage/classic vehicles to the village on that day to join in our celebrations. With the demise of the Hope Valley Vintage Car Rally, this is a great opportunity to establish a new tradition.

 

I wonder if you could spread the word amongst fellow classic enthusiasts.

 

No special booking required… but I only ask if a whole club is planning to arrive I get a bit of warning!

 

More details on the Visit Tideswell website. (look on RHS for L'Eroica)

 

 

By all means contact me if to wish to find out ore

I am looking for somewhere to do some DIY maintenance on my car. Does anyone know a location which lets people hire the place for a few hours to allow DIY ers to work on there premises. This does not need to have any special facilities just somewhere undercover, dry with electricity. Much appreciate any help.

 

As it happens I have just had a card pushed through my letterbox offering a fully equipped garage in town for DIY car owners to hire.

 

Fantastic !!!

 

£10 per hour and a mechanic on hand if you need advice. Even a tyre fitting machine.

Plus use of sockets and tools if you need it.

 

Their number is 4388188

Yeah the times I have thought the same thing. I do have a garage with light and power at the side of the house, but like all garages it is narrow

and I can't jack from the side. Plus, a pit or a ramp would make life so much easier.

 

I hope someone replies with info on this, I have even thought of looking into the possibility of starting something myself, I reckon there would be a good demand from DIYers and classic car enthusiasts etc.

Perhaps someone can give a legal opinion on the possibility.

Does anyone know of a Rover 75 Specialist I've recently bought a diesel version and it would be very useful for me to know of someone who knows his stuff with this car.

When I posted that new thread about re-making classic cars ( 19.6.2017), I put it on 'General Discussions', but it's been correctly placed on this site which I never knew existed. Is putting items for sale permitted on here ? Thanks.
