My only concern is that an imported car is the easiest thing in the world to steal so if it's left far away from the crowd it may disappear. Having said that I've never been to Cosford so I don't know what the separate car park arrangements are like. I may come in my Cit just to be sure!

Just to help get a feel for the scale, those little aircraft in the image are full sized real aeroplanes (I was there last year for the XM get together).

Indeed!
Considering there are three V-bombers and loads of other planes & missiles in the Cold War building alone the place is staggering.

I will make a simple suggestion that some people might take up. If you have family who cannot understand why we get together to celebrate our cars, but they have a liking for military aircraft, try and get them to come along. They may not (initially) appreciate the cars (although they will probably enjoy the atmosphere), but they have something else nearby that they can enjoy. Plus you can make a family day of it, and that is something we need to do more as a nation.

I have to say I didn't have much of an interest in the museum until I actually went in there but soon changed my mind and wished I hadn't left it so late.

I hope to get to this, be great to see lots of C6s. There was so much to do last year at the XM meet that we've still got much of the museum to see too. Another little outing for the Xantia beckons.

Right, We're getting ever closer, it's time to start thinking about who will be attending, I'd appreciate you adding your name once you know so I can give them a rough idea of figures.

Car parking is £3.50 per day, as it's a pay and display machine, so please bring enough change with you........
