Re: Jae 2008

Phil,

got the weekend covered for the JAE, so count me in for sure unless it's really bad weather!!.

Are we looking at Fri/Sat nights, I intend to camp ( at the back of the car again if I can get away with it) and is there anyone else with the same intent, pardon the pun?

John

Re: Jae 2008

Being a new venue John, I'm not too sure about the "lay of the land", i.e. what other accommodation may be around.

A hotel bed is much preferable to me than camping, particularly as I will be two nights away from home.

We have a 20 car spot reserved, so unless a lot more turn up than is usual, we will have space to pitch tents. If anybody intends to do this I suspect it would be OK, but the tents would need to be put away in the morning before the business of the day gets underway.

Smile Re: Jae 2008

Given the disappointing turn out last year, I think it would be a good idea to build a list of who is planning to attend. I don't want to book a hotel, drive all the way to Essex and then find that nobody else has bothered to turn up. If we can get 5 or more cars, it will be a worthwhile event.

Please copy this list and add your name if you are planning to attend.

I plan to be there with my latest Jersey Girl.

Graham is also coming, but I don't yet know what car he would bring.

I'm guessing it will be 5-speed and supercharged.

Good guess. However, it could be 4EAT and supercharged either.

Updated list.

At this point it would be sensible to email or PM some of the previous attendees to check their plans/availability. Some of those who do not monitor the forum much will be unaware of the venue change.

I'm thinking of stalwarts like Norman with the 3-tone car, and Ian with the all-silver UK car and maybe Arthur with his polo, though I suspect Arthur may bring the 350Z if attending.

There are others, and some, like Brett, will need a phone call. I'll get on it, I'm away on hols this coming Thursday for 10 days.

Joe

Re: Jae 2008

I PM'd a few.

James [jamsvx] replied. He will try to call over, but has no SVX. He has gone German. Moved from a V8 Merc to a V12 Bmer. He'll probably change that for an Audi A8 next year if he sticks to form.

I notice two of our members have had their accounts deactivated, Norman and Michael [Messenger]

I had better do a post on Yahoo!, as I now can't contact them here.
[Or maybe I can if I find what Chris has done with their accounts, since I'm an Administrator! ] Phil has already posted it up, if I'm not mistaken.

It might be possible to contact Michael through his website: http://www.michaelmessenger.com/. Check it out, he does some amazing work.

I have an email address for Pottsy, but I can't remember whether he still has an SVX or if he sold it.

I'll email Dave "blackbird2001" and see if he's up for it.

I wish James luck in finding a yellow 4WS Audi.

Re: Jae 2008

Hi, thanks for the email Joe.
I havent been on the forum for months.

I still have the SVX, now at a mere 74,000m and as the MOT guy says its like new underneath!

Also still thrashing around in the 350Z, although its for sale if anyone wants a nice Roadster, only 22,000m.

I will try and get over to the event, will get back later.

Regards

Arthur

Re: Jae 2008

Good to hear from you Arthur.

It will be great if you can bring the polo, the more the merrier, plus yours is in great nick.

I hope to see you there.

PS I'll be touring France next week, the Loire region. Might pop over to Le Mans and try a wheelie down the Mulsanne. Bikes on tour, that is.

Joe

Re: Jae 2008

Definitely will try and make an appearance if I can.

Look for something green and about 14 blocks long and that will be me!

For the hilarious length of the car, it actually handles incredibly well - the S500 was more 'remote' but a lot smoother and quieter and overall, you were tempted to drive through walls rather than around them.

The 750iL has a very linear power delivery - not that quick off the line (then, at over 2 ton, it would not be!) and does not have the 600hp madness engines that AMG are shoving in their ubersedans.

However, a test with one of those IPOD car performance programs that mesaures acceleration, lateral g, braking etc showed a very consistent rate of acceleration...just keeps pulling, next gear....pulling, next gear...pulling - I can only describe it as a turbine.

Aside from an S600 (V12 with 6 litres!) the only other car that I have driven like that is a JC Cosmo 20B - triple rotor twin turbo. That went like stink!
