  1. As it is the best annual show worldwide, of course it is going to be busy but as said above my advice, having been quite regularly, is to go on a Thursday or Friday to check out the 'off-hill' action and then watch the hill action on the Saturday or Sunday and vary your viewing places during the day's action. Arrive early - yes there will be queues even at 6am, but there will be longer queues later and the stands/hill will be more packed as the mornings go on. Try and pic spots opposite the big screens so you see more of the hill action and use the ear pieces to hear the live commentary. Recommend you you get yourself to the top of the hill at some point as the arrival of the cars/bikes etc and the antics many get up to are worth seeing The other fav bit for me is the assembly area before the runs and which is also used by the likes of Terry Grant and his team. I also enjoy the rally stage, but not everyone's taste so it is relatively crowd free. And for anyone who can't get along and can't be doing with the crowds, remember the whole weekend is streamed live (the presentation is excellent) so you can watch from your armchair and keep dry! Enjoy!!
  2. If a new Zed does appear before I kick the bucket......and what it offers suits me, then yes, my Cayman may have to go, as it good as it is and whilst the Porsche customer care is second to none including a couple of free days at their Silverstone track, I still hanker after a another Zed as the 3 I had were all brilliant for me.
  3. Needs a garage first and in Richmond that ain't easy...... Pleased for you Col - always had respect for your choice of cars that have been something different from the norm and great choices
  4. Me too, and maybe for road cars too as I'm not convinced the battery laden vehicles on our roads are not a 'green' way forward as manufacturers would like us to believe, particularly given the processes needed to produce those batteries.
  5. Some stunning cars and, er, 'accessories' on display but this one deserves the prize of "in the worst possible taste...."
  6. Excellent news, and given what Andy already does to help members enjoy their Zeds and the forum

    Here he is - a Member Trader on here who been with the forum since its earliest days and has helped to keep thousands of members cars running and is a major source of parts for the Zeds. https://www.350z-uk.com/profile/9648-zmanalex/ I can understand your query being a new member and it's a shame there is not a 'sticky' in the member traders area to help identify these members who do an invaluable job.
  8. Not with internal combustion engines (that we enjoy) for much longer I fear, as the article in the link sadly predicts. But then F1 in particular has lost a lot of interest by the casual followers anyway - the absence of interest on this forum being an example and quite understandable in the way the F1 has been run/regulated in recent times. Inevitable really given the climate change evidence as manufacturers increasingly move to non-fossil fueled, in part or in whole, transport. https://thejudge13.com/2019/12/03/honda-pull-out-of-f1-red-bull-quits-manufacturers-question-participation/ Enjoy your ZEDS while you can as generations to come will not be able to do so....
  9. Certainly missed - a sad loss for the forum who did so much. RIP Mart.
  10. Probably before they discovered tinternet and the competition!
  11. I'm going to give NFU a go at renewal time - heard good reports, but no idea what they may charge. https://www.nfumutual.co.uk/insurance/motor-insurance/car-insurance/
