1/4/15 Issue no. 138 of The Indicator has landed! We get the full story about Spares Secretary, Rod Smith, winning the Hagerty Insurance sponsored "Unsung Club Hero" award made at the recent Club Expo, but there is much much more besides. Derek Vernon talks about his 1600E, Paul Elliot tells us about the unexpected work needed on his 1600GT, Stephen Prince reintroduces us to his MkII estate Ambulance and Andy Guile gives us part 2 of his 2dr GT restoration story. Rod Smith has the latest news from the Spares dept, and Charles Hanson has low down on shows for this season. Christine Fletcher introduces us to the all new Dorset branch and Phil Lewis reports from the Great Weston Autojumble and his Savage winning another prize.
4/3/15 Our Spares Secretary, Rod Smith won the Hagerty insurance sponsored "Unsung Club Hero" award at the Club Expo event at Gaydon last Saturday, beating (we think) over 120 other entrants!!!! Many thanks to all that nominated and voted for him. Unfortunately Rod couldn't be there, so we kept it quiet and arranged for club founder member, Pete Pascoe to make a second presentation at the Essex branch pub meet yesterday. It's fair to say Rod was quite taken back by it all. Read the full story in the forthcoming April edition of our magazine. "The Indicator".
1/2/15 It's Resto City in the new edition of The Indicator with restoration reports coming from Andy Guile and his 2dr GT, Rod Smith and his 2dr Deluxe Sedan, Charles Hanson and his GT Crayford and Alec Ross and his 1600E. Alec also tell us of how close he and his car came to getting involved with some filming work. We have the latest spares news, the first show list for this season and also news of the branch meet for the Somerset area being restarted together with the launch of a brand new branch about to be launched in the Dorset area. You will also be able to find the membership renewal notice included too.
1/12/14 The Christmas edition of The Indicator is out now, and its absolutely crammed full! Acting Vice Chairman Graham Orchard takes a quick look back at 2014 and looks forward to an even bigger and better 2015 in Bare Facts, we have a few details about the 2015 National Rally while Steve Green reminisces about a MkII that wasn't quite his when it got stolen many years ago. Show reports this time come from Keith Evans, Colin Baker and Ciderman, and Mick Wynter tells us about a V6 GT he recently imported from the US. Peter Cooper remembers his time on the Cortinas to Cortina run they we organised for the 50th anniversary of the Ford Cortina back in 2012 (see HERE for more photos from the trip) and editor Phil Lewis reports from the wedding of the year between committee members Heather and Ollie. Add in some spares scheme news, the latest on the pub meets and you wonder how Phil got it all in!
