There has been talk of just going away to the Peak District or Paignton again for a weekend so with Hazel moving NEWS we have finally grabbed a weekend as a few have already put it in their employers holiday book..
Common End Farm near Ashbourne Derbyshire is willing to host us at 18 a night for 2 on grass or 10 for singles with no hook up 21 with 6 amp hook up>

This is not an organised weekend so bookings will be direct to the camp site all we need is a list of folks so we can give the owner a list of interested parties to check off who has booked and paid to keep us all together when pitched. Arrive Friday or Saturday.

Some lovely roads and scenery for a cruise out and some nice towns to visit.


A list
The Snoopys may be hook up if we take the caravan as well.

This year we have a specific club code issued to us so you folk save money and depending on numbers the BBI web site gets a small monetary commission which will go towards running the site. 

Use the club code when booking.

full entry per day is 20 single and 51 for a family two day passes are 35 so all these prices will be  discounted by a few

I have heard nothing from them as yet after we applied for it and thinking I am normally getting organised December time, so if enough buggy owners are interested I will chase up to see if we have been accepted or dropped next year as they do get over subscribed  ( the advert states a exhibitor list will be available soon ). Your buggy needs to be put on the stand around noon on thursday and is allowed out about 5.30 on the sunday.

buggy on display gets 2 entry passes for all 3 days and a free car park ticket all for about 11 towards the required insurance.

Who is interested please list below.

Just had the paperwork through 4 per day but have until april to get any entry list in for Ragley could do Ragley Sunday as it is the main day and D in the M on the Saturday as that will be busy guessing 5 on the gate.

Ex Wrinkly Ninja Jas lwb, taken on unseen as a rolling project it has been done so far by the new owner I guess.

was told it needed body bolting on and wiring  + other stuff, early morning sun beat the phone camera.

patrially wired but it will be coming out and a complete new set up put in

rear lap belts part fitted but only bolted through the tub by the shiny nut,

going to need a full check through, rework where needed and fabrication of a dash frame, front body mounts and rear seat belt frame if required, a parts wanted list is in the pipeline and will follow.

Beach Buggies For Sale / the GP swb is available and need it gone
« on: July 11, 2018, 07:35:08 PM »
correctly registered as a GP beach buggy in 1974 using a 1957 floor pan, now with a 72 transmission and brakes, front axle has 65-66 wider brakes fitted. all new brake hydraulics fitted and shoes n clips etc are as new, new correctly shortened brake cables fitted.
brand new Nankang 205/60 X 14 front tyres and 225/60 X 15 rears also has a set of banded rims 7 X 15 with tyres with it.
1300 twin port motor with progressive twin choke weber and silenced dual cannons.
Mazda mx5 seats and new seat belts, rear bench seat.
All new wiring looms and blade fuse boxes, the new fuel sender fitted is erratic at best so it has a calibrated dipstick.
drives well with a bit of noise transmission  due to a solid front gearbox mounting.

a solid buggy that could be improved and personalised or used as it is. starts and runs well I have done a couple of hundred miles in it. MOT tested in june but now mot exempt if you want.
no weather gear.
loads of spares for the rear lights
indicator self cancel is inop with the steering wheel boss but is has a audible warning fitted along side the light so you know they are on.
DVLA say they have processed the change from PLG to historic today so the log book is on it's way.

more photos in the members buggy section under the GP flinstone buggy so 4000 for a drive away buggy all correctly registered and legal

We are off to visit a buggy owner in WSM on the Saturday, no firm times or meting place as yet but some of the MBC are cruising down for a day at the seaside, anyone interested in meeting up?
More info nearer the day.
