The Avenue Drivers Club (http://www.avenuedriversclub.co.uk) met again in Queen Square and there was a good attendance so I thought I's share some of the pictures with you.

Hi my little classic would love to come and join you but is not "anything motorised that will do at least 100mph." as per your homepage!

But if you promise not to laugh we'll be there!

....none of us had any issues and that at last count was a range of 1960s-1970s Lambrettas and an early 1980s Vespa.

Just signed up to this - I work just around the corner too - but I can't imagine there'll be too many out to play tomorrow, given the media's "Arctic" weather forecast? rolleyes

Sorry, I don't know - other than arriving and leaving, I haven't left the office all week..... We're round the corner in Prince Street, so don't overlook the square either.

No worries! I was there earlier actually, at 19.00ish on Sat night the road around Queen Sq was clear of snow & ice but wet, it may well be icy tomorrow morn. If we dont get anymore snow then i'm still up for popping down for a nice hot coffee.

Hopefully see some of you there.

I made it to the February meeting yesterday and here are some of the resulting photos; sorry about the quality, I used the cheap camera I keep in the car.

Taken shortly after I arrived, thinking, 'mm, this is going to be good.'


From the ordinary ...


... to the esoteric ...


... to the downright bizarre!


Something a little different.


I want those wheels! (In 15-inch though.)


This is not all it appears at first sight!





It's actually a replica, built from parts of many different cars! By the time the owner (who can be seen standing beside the car in the first photo) had finished explaining how he did it their was an audience of about a dozen. He then turned to us and said, "Not bad for a dustman!"

What idiot turned up in one of these?


The oldest car there.


Interiors old ...


... and new.


Three totally different cars all gorgeous in their own way:




And given the location, I'd have been disappointed not to see one of these!

What's bizarre about the Mini other than the fact it's a '68 that has been 'reshelled' into a later body shell?

You don't recognise the quote then!

What struck me was how small it was! I mean we all know the mini was small, but next to today's so-called small cars it looks the size of a fag packet by comparison!

im assuming the comment relating to the mx5 is supposed to be tongue in cheek? othriwse it doesnt bode well that someone made the effort to come along and was then criticized. future classic and all that.

( unless its will, in which case haranguie to your hearts content) biggrin

Wow, a superb eclectic gathering there!
I must make the effort to come along soon - hopefully on the Laverda, so it would be good to see some 'real' bikes out to play too wink
