Bubble Car Museum 2017

Postby george baker » Thu Nov 24, 2016 2:52 pm

Hi
I am going to the Bubble Car Museum on Friday June16th 2017

EDIT
and propose it should be a potential club event (I dont like to approve my own events so have asked the committee to approve the proposal) now approved


http://www.bubblecarmuseum.co.uk/

Museum Entry is £4

There is a cafe on site 10-4 which does light lunches, drinks and cakes.

CAMPING
I am going to camp the night before
Tent pitches are a fiver for little (£9 I think for larger) ones
The camp site is basic but was nice and clean when I was last there
There is a pub about 2 miles away according to Bing maps
We can have a BBQ and the place makes its own cider

There is the BBMF museum about 6 miles away, well much closer but you have to ride around the whole of Conningby airfield.

Hi George, It seems like a good idea. I will try to make it, but if I come on the bike it'll be just me, but if my wife fancies it, we'll probably come over in our old motorhome. So put me down as a definite maybe
Cheers

I had a Heinkel bubble-car followed by two Trojans (UK Heinkel takeover).

The Heinkel threw a conrod at 70 mph on the A8 near Glasgow after I had just overtaken a Jaguar much to my delight.
Father-in-law was called out to tow Heinkel, wife, daughter in carry-cot and self back home.

It was a great little car and transported seven down to the best chippie in the Gorbals most weekends.

Hi
Tango, stop on the Thursday with me and be there to greet people on arrival?

I am planning that cos it is 3 hours from home and I dont get in to action first thing in the morning (But I may be repaired by then)

I did the BBMF last year but could be tempted again, Unless I see something else nearby I have not been to.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who takes a while to get moving, maybe, if you don't mind, I'd like to ride up with you and leave the moho (and wife) at home. I had an Isetta back in the 60s reg 246 ADD, that number must be worth a fortune now---------Ah well, se la vie

It's a bit too early to make a definite commitment but I fancy this trip. I would travel down on Thursday and meet you on the road somewhere this side of the Pennines.

I am up for this but I am not a tenter so will find somewhere B&B nearer the time....or day trip it.

When I was 16 but had passed my bike test I had a Bond Minicar bought for £12 and sold a few years later for £1 for scrap ...doh! We went all over in it and broke down in some nearly exotic places. 8912KH (funny how you remember old reg nos) . It has no reverse gear and a kick start under the bonnet although it had electric as well. I saw one at a classic car show we attended in our old VW Camper and i have to say it brought back memories but no desire:-)

Bit early for definite commitment but it is deffo on the list

Hi
I spoke to Paula yesterday and she is expecting us.

She is not sure if there will be cider left by June but I have requested it.

Who else wants to come?

Hi
they seem to have an endless number of pitches available but when I get in touch I will up the pitch number.

I am not certain we will get ANY cider, but Paula said she would try to put some to one side for us,

It's the way the membership sec tells who has renewed, and who hasn't.
When the current round of membership renewals closes, all the "Club Member 11" members (last year) will have their privileges on the Forum rolled back to just "Forum Member".

Hipe this helps.
