I have 2 x working and 3 x ready for rebuild gearboxes plus the tremec which I'm hoping to modify to use.

You must have me confused with another BC, Mickey taking and banter doesn't sound like me at all... :W :W :lol: :lol:

Just received this from Steve Cox for anyone that isn’t registered:

Good evening folks.

I'm just doing the timetable for the 2 rolling road days on 3rd and 17th March. If you are coming along but have not yet booked, please tell me today. Last call.

Thanks, Steve

Steve Cox told me we would be early afternoon. After 5pm seems a ridiculous time for a Saturday :shock: :shock:

Maybe he's tagged you onto the end of the day but his previous email suggested he was going to group similar cars together and as I have not received a time yet you would have thought he would have just slotted you in with the other SS1's :?

Mark you will be pleased to know that the new converter plate (once I gave you the right dimensions) now fits! Thank for your help.

But note this from Steve:
"Finally, I should just mention that there is not unlimited parking in the area so if you are bringing a tow vehicle and trailer you should allow ample time to get parked and unloaded."
