Sorry to hear you'll not be down Steve - was getting very used to you being a ride staple! :wink:

We'll also be a mixed (up) group if that helps at all... :)

Anyone likely to be passing Warwick / Coventry on Friday? May need some swag taking to the meet. For various reasons not 100% sure I can make it :roll:

You might have to add me to the piking list too. I'm downgrading to 50/50 status.

Any tips for killing awkward customers welcome.

No, he's a great payer. It goes something like this

6:20pm last night, just locking up, phone rings....

Punter; hi Si it's St*****. we are in the shit. We are heading off to France on monday to do the Circuit Des R******* and the Rallye Du A*******e
and the damn B has broken down. Can you help?

Me; Erm, yeah, does it have to be today though?

Punter; oh yes, we want to visit friends en route. I've spent all day trying to fix it, checked all the wiring, taken the fuel pumps off, stripped the carbs, checked the ignition.

Me; OH. What happened last time you did that?

Punter; yes, yes I know. I thought I would stop before I got too far. Only when I started putting it back together lots and lots of smoke started coming out from behind the dash.

Me; jesus, has it stopped?

Punter; I don't know, I can't see from here, i'm in the kitchen. I thought it best I asked your advice before I bugger things up.

Me; God give me strength. Get off the phone, disconnect the battery and I'll be there in 30 minutes.

So, it looks like a busy weekend for me. Customers eh!

:roll:
