We just need 40 more +2's to make it 50 at 50!

Don't let the type 14's overshadow us.... pretty though they are and historic that they are, the type 14 doesnt turn as many heads as a nicely presented +2 IMNSHO :mrgreen:

Should I risk fate and add Toad?? Risky!
Simply out of friendly interest, will any representative from Spyder be present?

I have asked and have received a non comittal reply. The answer is maybe Sean or Andy will attend weather and work depending.

Spyder are responsible for saving a lot of +2's from being broken for spares with the identities lost forever, whatever you might think of the Zetec conversions at least the cars themselves survive and can be enjoyed. It would be nice to have a Zetec section, there must be at least 50 :mrgreen:

Vince,
You really need to bring Toad, be brave!

Damn, I'm at the Isle of Man that weekend. Would have loved to seen a collection of +2's to pick owners brains, plus possibly tease someone to sell me one ;)

Have fun guys.

Sadly it is becoming increasing unlikely Alan! If you see anyone from the Peterborough dic*wits do give them my regards. Preferably with a length of 4 X 2.

I've made a few mods to my Plus Two BNF 289N prior to Castle Coombe. I guess I'll get noticed.
