DVLA sent back my application for a numberplate for the Irish 100e because there is no VIN number on the Irish logbook.

A Ford 100e the engine number and the chassis number are the same, I wrote this on my application.

The Irish don't like repetition so having written it in next to engine number they didn't write it again next to the bit that says VIN on the line directly underneath.

Logbook has been rejected as part of the application for this vehicle.

So now I've got to pay £50 + travel for someone from the owners club to come and look at the car and write a dating letter.

Don't people have anything better to do that make other people's lives awkward?

Usual form, the club has been going to this since we started being a club   and no sign of that changing any time soon default/smile

There will be club camping, please note this is rather old fashioned - we have to collect monies from everyone then post it off, they'll post back everyone's tickets to one person and then we have to distribute them.

The best show in Essex in my opinion...

but then I may be  a bit biased.


Club camping and club display:   There will be some,  Gary Dunlop (slammedresto) usually sorts it

As you can see in the background, my neighbour has one for his mk3 Zodiac, and the neighbour the other side of him also has one for is MG.

There is established protocol here for holding them down in the windy default/smile

The back half is anchored to the ground using the tarmac fixings they use to hold speed bumps down with so then that M10 bolt is holing P clips around the tubular frame.

I'm awaiting the arrival of two leather dog collars (straps) from the bay of E, and then more fixings and P clips will go in on the corners and I'll use the leather straps through the P clips and round the frame to hold that opening end down default/smile

I had an erection in my front garden today.

It was cold and I was struggling to get it up because it's quite big but Abi gave me a hand and it was up and sturdy in no time at all default/smile

Once it was all done we opened the flap up  and I drove it in.

I've got an old one  but I quite happily turn up in this too default/smile
