Today (Saturday March 22nd), we played host to the Mid Essex branch of the MG Owner's Club. They were here for a look around the garage. We had some interesting stuff for them to look at too, including a Lamborghini Countach and a Sebring Healey with a Chevy 383 c i V8. Sadly not for sale. Of course we're famous for our refreshments and today proved to be no exception. (No alcohol though!). It was great to meet the guys and we have a distinct link between us since the NG range of cars we have here, use MGB mechanicals. There were some interesting V8 conversions to the MG's for us to examine as well. One of the members spotted his old car here, well, half of it. It sticks out proudly from the end wall in our display! they were kept busy examining the engine bays of a nice line of Cobras, amongst other interesting machines such as a 1966 Mustang. We always welcome Owner's club meetings here (by arrangement) and we enjoyed having an interesting well informed bunch of petrol heads to share our passion for powerful cars!

 

SnakeTorque Club Day Out

For some time we had thought about offering the Owner's clubs a venue for a day out. Unfortunately, our old premises had such restricted parking that it was completely unsuitable. But since moving here to Hainault, we realised that we had the perfect venue and so as soon as we were up and running we invited the Cobra lads for a party. The weather was good and we have ample parking, especially on a Saturday so we provided the refreshments and they provided 20 or so Cobra's which travelled the scenic route through the country lanes arriving just in time for lunch!

We had several phone calls reporting the progress of the cars and it made a spectacular sight to see them all come round the corner and draw up outside. A fine selection of cars and some took advantage of our 1/4 mile straight which is near deserted on a Saturday for some wheel spinning runs (un-timed of course!).
