    Midlands (west) Meets

    Afternoon all.

    As its coming to the start of a new year, I thought id find out what you all fancied for the coming years meets?

    My thoughts are to either set up a regular meet for us (weekly, fortnightly, or monthly) and choose a mutual location for said meet.

    Or tag onto an existing meet, as we have been.

    Let me know your thoughts.

    Rob

    (on a side note, a new place for DIY servicing has opened up in coventry, not been over and checked it out yet, but once i have, i will report back. www.rampandwrench.co.uk )

    Well thats what I want to find out. Find a mutually convenient location. I suspect it will be either Coventry or the southern side of brum though (judging by the previous attendee's)

    Just been over, had a "tour" and booked mine in for friday to do the CV's and have a general poke about underneath to see what else may need doing. Looks a good place, only two ramps but he's quiet for now until word spreads a bit more, cheaply priced, decent clean workshop. definately worth a look

    Hey Hey Hey!!!

    Nilz checking in

    I actually spoke to one of the guys from the Cov DubCLub meets yesterday, the Cov meets started up again today and will be on every Wednesday.

    If we can drum up enough interest, lets get a few people together and go to the meet, its a really good meet, with like minded people that are chilled out and just there for a bit of a chat and a laugh.

    Der_Techniker (soz dont remember your name) Drop me a PM with your name and number and we can sort out going with a few of the others on here.

    Jo, let me know when you're up for it and we can take a drive up to Cov.

    Jo, pm'd you my number, drop me a call if you want to pop into ramp and wrench and I'll meet you over there (unless that puts you off )

    I'm from Leicester and am always looking for meets to swap ideas and just generally view other people's cars. Coventry isn't that far. Anyone else in Leicester go?

    Hey Chris, Speedy Steve sometimes pops over from Lesta, there are also alot of the VW boys that come over that I know, they come over quite regularly, so dont feel shy

    Chris, do you work for or own Lion Garages, I have seen and heard of them as am around Lesta quite regualrly, so is good to know there is someone there in the know.

    Stoney Cove, near Sapcote? I'm game for that. Some sensibility for a change. Instead of the fiesta crew driving like tw@'s around a car park.

    Steve, sick some steelies on for now
