Leicester Splash 2006
Shame about the rain. We did splash quite a bit on the way home. A friendly show at Brooksby Hall near Melton Mowbray. Meet some old friends Chris http://nuts-about-triumphs.blogspot.com/ and Steve from the West Midlands. Another Chris who owned my car years ago came and said hello (you can't have her back).
Got a couple of old car mags from the autojumble and Jan my partner found some second hand books so that pleased her.
Good to see the HQ van was there with a selection of the shop stock http://www.tssc.org.uk/catalog.asp?category=home.
One of the side shows called splat the rat was great fun. A rat (a toy it must be said) was dropped down a drain pipe and the aim of the game was hit it as it came out. We both failed. Apparently a 4 year had managed it earlier in the day.
There was a chap there called Carl Saunders. He had lots of body spare parts that he had fabricated himself. He calls his business Black Cat Ironworks. "For Triumph Herald and Vitesse spares repair panels, bodywork, welding and much more........" is what his business card says. contact him on 07963 426933 or email on firstname.lastname@example.org
