Neil couldn’t have organised better weather for his run, it was very mild and pleasant, perfect for veteran motoring. Unfortunately the long weekend took its toll and only two veteran vehicles turned out: Phil and Trish in the Siddeley-Deasy and Julian in his “Indian Red” Clement Bayard (taking it out for a test run after having done some suspension work I believe). Neil, Stuart, Claire and I added to the numbers in (or on, in my case) our ‘moderns’.

Morning tea at Wittunga was thoroughly enjoyable, the setting was very tranquil and entertainment was provided by all in turn recounting adventures of days past. I don’t think that anyone could top Claire and Stuart’s stories though, of the pistol range set up in the hallway of their house and the physical challenges of getting a deer with rigor mortis out of a car boot – never mind the curing of the slaughtered beast hanging from every possible fixing point inside the house afterwards! I think it’s safe to say that everyone headed home later in the morning feeling refreshed by the excellent company and surroundings. Thanks Neil.
