Last night I dropped in at the Plough in Enfield for the local Club Triumph meeting - following a 5:30 start I had been in Norwich all day and left there about 17:30 - I stopped off at the Plough and met with some familiar faces - Tim Bancroft, James Carruthers, Ellis Stokes, Nigel Gair and loads more - good to have a chat and a bit to eat together. I'll put these meetings in my diary and, as I'm often in Norwich on a Monday, I will try and do it again. If I'm not passing then it might be a laugh to take teh Vitesse out and take a drive over - the traffic at that time sucks though and I would prefer not to spend ny leaisure time sat on the M25 clockwise when I sit on the M25 anti-clockwise with my job so often :-)

Nice blow job

Sorry, should say Nice blower job, Shorrock supercharger on a Spit - very nice installation and a really nice car. The car belongs to a long time TSSC member - Lewis Jones. Scroll down for more photos from Stafford and a few words.

Kiss and tell

There's far too much of this sort of thing going on, I mean, she should get her own chewing gum.

Rare picture of Zoe actually smiling - how un-cool!


Stafford in the sunshine

Lots of cars parked up on the field - we went and rounded up some of them from the camping site on Saturday

Who farted? We all know it was Carl

Andy on the left and Carl on the right - looking drunk and disorientated in the smoke - I think that was from Carl's backside.

The pick of the crop

The ladies of Stafford, funny lot - and who's that bloke in the background picking his noise? :-)


Enjoying a beer, a BBQ and a Triumph - I think the smile on my face says it all!

TSSC International Stafford

Just got back from a weekend away, camping in a field full of petrol heads. Me and the guys from Hants & Berks did our thing - Andy Cook & Family, Mike Crewes & Claudia, Carl & Becky and Zoe and I made our way up separately but all converged on Friday night for a beer or two in the bar. It was great to catch up with old friends and put some more faces to names. The internet is a great place to correspond with people but it's quite weird to have some "stranger" come up to you and know you by name, by car etc. Saturday breakfast was the usual Hants & Berks super full English - BBQ toast, bacon, sausage, Becky on the eggs and Carl on the beans - we'll feed anyone. Becky's car was in for a hood fitting demo by Anglian Triumphs and Carl was so impressed he entered the Spit for the Cruised and Used concours, no prize but an interesting experience none the less. We did our "official duty" and went round the campers asking people to park thei

I see you baby, shaking that ass!

The Sixfire suspension and handling has always needed tuning ever since we got the car. She sits too high at all round but especially at the back, this leads to a touch of positive camber, never good. The front is too soft, I suspect it's got Spitfire springs on. The shocks aren't aweful but they aren't great either. If I were driving it more often I'd have invested in 330 lb front springs and a thicker anti-roll bar with either a lowering block on the back or a replacement spring from a trusted source ( ) to get it sitting right. At the moment it's all too easy to induce rear breakway. However, as this is Claudia's car I've left it up to her and she's been quite pleased with the soft ride and hasn't taken it near it's limits (it doesn't take much to get there!). Until now that is! She was out in the rain in the week with a friend in the car, probably gossiping and not paying too much attention to anything. The road was
