Birthday celebration 16/09/2018 Nuffield Place, Oxfordshire

Post27 Jan 2018 23:52

The launch of the Very first A40 Farina took place on 18th September 1958....according to Keith!

A special date for your diary.........another celebration.......a 60th Birthday! The nearest Sunday 16th September

ALL welcome and there will be a convoy to the venue. The NT can offer is space for 12 cars parked on the gravel outside Lord Nuffields home is a fascinating place to visit!
More details in the next magazine!

Liz is to be congratrulated on arranging a second 'summer' picnic at the home of Lord Nuffield (a bloke who, it seems, made a few cars called "Morris"!) His country home sits between Henley and Wallingford in Oxfordshire and has lovely gardens and period furniture. As Liz says, more news later in the year.

Thank you for your efforts Liz, always good to get a few members together and show off the A40.

Let’s hope that we can get GHU 468B to attend as it belonged to Paul Cooke (classic car coordinator for NT)

So, fancy a trip to see us all - and the car's earlier owner?

No response from the current owner...which I was told would probably be the case!
Never mind.....we might have something more exciting on the day! Look out for more news regarding the event in your magazines!

cheers stoney. Sadly there are only so many weekends in a year. Have a great time at the Pod - and remember, keep a light foot on the throttle to drive enonomically!
