Update Sunday 28th February

Hi Folks

Keeping busy as usual and looking forward to the coming season. I t is about that time of year when the car gets a service and you start looking forward to the sun coming out! then you get an email from Elwyn in Sweden showing me what they had over the weekend.

So whilst Canada were worrying about having enough for the Olympics it all arrived in Sweden!
Good job it didn't arrive here, it would have closed the country until about May or June.
Elwyn did send me some more photos during last summer of his car at a British car meet and if I can ever find the time I will get them put onto a gallery page on our website, if only to prove that it is not only snow in Sweden.
For some unknown reason there a a large number of Gentry's being bought and moved to France. I accept that their weather probably lends itself to driving a Gentry more than the weather in the UK but it's not ex-pats that are taking them. In the main it appears to be French residents who can appreciate the class and style of the car. Well we can all agree with that.
I also managed to speak with Roger Blockley the other day. Hopefully he will be able to get to one of our monthly meetings at the Hinckley Island and I can report back once I've caught up with him. I know I have a lot of questions I would like to ask.
Got to sign off now, Canada are playing the USA in the final of the ice hockey and I don't want to miss anything!
See you next time.

Update... Late as usual

Hi Folks,
Yes I know back to my old ways!! Only just into the New Year and have already slipped into forgetting to do the update. I don't know what happened over the last few weeks, apart from lots of work, but somehow I completely forgot that an update was due. I had set the reminder on the calendar on the laptop so it should be almost impossible to forget. Then the wireless card broke and so I've been mainly using the desk top. Of course I hadn't set the reminder on the desk top and the two computers do not talk to each other!!!

Work remains exceptionally busy, which is good, we have made some very nice changes to the latest car and kit which we believe makes for a much better build and final look. If I could find the time I would build another demonstrator so that we could show them off. Only problem remains time to do it!
I will be back on the correct date with the full update.
