Victory Wheelers' organised a run in Hampshire from the Chase pub in Waltham Chase to the Prince of Wales in Sherrill Heath.  We were to arrive at the Chase at 8 pm and leave for the Prince at 8:30 pm.  Any later would have been difficult as the light was fading fast but even though Big Al of Victory Wheelers said many find it hard to turn up at this time because of work etc, there was a fairly good turnout.  Now the nights are again drawing in, it is hard to get that balance for evening runs. 

I took a few pics at the Chase while the light was still fairly good and then we were off.  We made a nice convoy and fortunately because we were going fairly slowly we scuppered the local police's attempt to catch us in a speed trap.  Not content with trying to get Dan (53catalina) from the front (he was leading the pack), the man with the gun also tried to get him as he sped away (fortunately only doing about 25 mph).

Had a nice surprise when we arrived at the Prince of Wales because there were loads of other vehicles already there.  They were in a bowl shaped garden/field at the back of the pub so they all looked very impressive parked on different levels.  It was packed and it was a struggle to get everyone in but we did it.  From what I understand, the other vehicles meet there regularly and we were taking the opportunity to join them.  Photos here are a bit dark as the light was nearly gone but hopefully it will give you an idea.

By the way, lovely food at the Prince of Wales and seems a nice pub to visit if you are in the area.

Below, a lovely Corvette which has been fully restored.  The owner has documented all the work so we suggested checking out MMM and considering sharing his restoration with us:

That looks like a great run Rick. We didn't even know it was on. Can't wait to get my Pop finished & start doing a few of these local trips.

hi all

the landlord at the Prince Of Wales holds this get together once a month, and a couple of times a year it coincides with the Victory Wheelers meeting on the 3rd Wednesday of the month.
As it is close by to our regular meeting place it's nice to have a short run up the road.
I think they were a little surprised when we arrived and filled up the garden and car park.  I noticed the mini owners beat a hasty retreat and went for an early night  Wink
There was also quite a few cars that I hadn't seen before.
Hopefully I wont have a little brown envelope on the carpet in the next couple of weeks, but my speedo isnt the most accurate (under reads by about 5mph) and bounces a little too! 
I think it wasnt a good idea in hindsight to floor the accelerator quickly when I was level with him to make the exhaust pipes rap and backfire on the over run  Grin  I guess it sounds quicker than it is.  136bhp in a 3 ton car isnt really enough..........................


see you all soon
