Re: NEC 2014

To confirm that the DVD/VCR combi unit is working OK. I need to find the remote for it, but I’ve had it working on the case buttons anyway. So I’ll be bringing this with me (c/w scart cable, coax cable & extension lead). I’m working on the theory that someone else is bringing a TV screen. On Thursda...

Re: NEC 2014

As I posted on Oct 12th - I'm up for manning one day (or more, possibly) and set up/pack up. Assuming the 216GSI is still wanted on the stand, I'll have to be there Sunday to pick it up anyway. I hardly profess to be an expert on the Marque, so might need to buddy up with someone that is. It has bee...

Re: NEC 2014

I've got a combined DVD & VHS player that I picked up from my Mum's estate. If it's gong to be of use I'll prioritise checking it over to make sure it's fully functioning and get familiar with its controls. Let me know if we're likely to want it and I'll give a once over this weekend.

Re: NEC 2014

Yeah, you can dress mine up as a wedding car if that fits the theme – hey, maybe this could be a potential income stream for the club in the future (haha)? Do we have a handout with club info and programme of events for next year? Perhaps a collage of members with their cars? Photos from previous me...

Re: NEC 2014

Excuse me for asking this, as I have only just recently started to get involved with the club and it might be a bit late in the day to bring this up – but what do we want to achieve through our presence at the NEC this year? Especially with it being the 25th anniversary. Please don’t view this as cr...

Presentation & Preservation of 1989 216GSI

Hi All, I have recently bought a 25 year old 216GSI that has only 17,000 miles on the clock. The car is in very good condition and I’d like to keep this one that way for a long time. Although I have always tried to maintain my cars to a good standard mechanically, I have never really worried too muc...

Re: Club Shop

OK, I've ticked Polo & Fleece - but I'd prefer T-Shirt & Sweat Shirt. Very 70s/80s - but so are my vehicles.

Re: 25th Birthday Party - 21st Sept 2014 - Heritage Centre

Does the club have some contemporary articles of Marketing Material, Road Tests, Range Brochures, Dealer Literature, etc. already? If not, I am looking at what's available on e-bay - probably can't get it in time for 21st Sept, but could have it ready for NEC. Any thoughts? Cheers, Duncan.

Re: 25th Birthday Party - 21st Sept 2014 - Heritage Centre

Hi GTiJohn - I will be coming in the 1989 216 GSI - G722 DUY. I tried to pay my membership through this site, but I've since found the posts highlighting the problems you are currently experiencing. Am I better to join up on the 21st, or should I use the Paypal route I saw mentioned? Pity I haven't ...

Re: 25th Birthday Party - 21st Sept 2014 - Heritage Centre

Hi. New member just joined. Will definitely be at the bash on 21st September. Looking forward to meeting some of you there. I have just bought a 1989 216 GSI off of e-bay - 16,666 on the clock and it looks genuine. Also have a 1990 216 GSI and a 1997 416 Tourer. My wife has an MG ZR 1.4 too, so we'r...
