Default Stradsett Rally

I'm off to Stradsett this weekend with Exgreeney, we spent today getting the engines etc loaded ready, my car was in the village garage getting serviced. Its our first time displaying at the rally even though I've been as a visitor, hopefully will see Novo there and others.

Our club chairman is going but taking a model this time instead of an engine. A decent weekend is forecast anyway so you should all stay dry.

I had been thinking about it, but decided to go to Brede instead, with the weather lately I was not really wanting to sleep in a tent or under a brolly.

Transport cafe I think Nick. Kate Moss was otherwise engaged, and she would probably have killed him off anyway!

Simple, a model of a transport cafe. At least that is his usual non engine exhibit, it will probably be on show in his caravan awning.

Why weird Nick? Plenty of dioramas are on display in model tents and halls etc at shows, fairgrounds, garage scenes, farmyards, scrapyards, dockland scenes etc etc so a period transport cafe with vehicles etc isn't out of place at all.

Never really got all that, but I guess some might think that admiring old engines is a bit odd so each to their own.
