Autumn, The Season of Mists and Mellow Fruitfulness . . . and the X1/9 Owners Club AGM, 4th, October 2015
Words and Photographs by Sharon & Ray Taylor
We really do enjoy being members of Car Clubs; Sharon has the X1/9 Owners Club, of which she is the Regalia Officer. Ray has the GT-R Owners Club, of which he is an “Executive Member” – “something vaguely to do with the Committee”; and of course by no means last - we both belong to EYTCC.
So, it does mean that we need to attend our respective AGMs; that’s when it gets interesting because, apart from the EYTCC (which we miss this year due a GTROC Event) these are held “centrally” somewhere in the UK and involve organising a conveniently situated overnight stay.
This year the X1/9 OC AGM was at the Heritage Motor Museum, Gaydon near Coventry; a superb venue for anyone with an interest in Motor Vehicle Heritage; AND it coincided with the penultimate final “Fly By” by the last Vulcan “V” bomber: XH558. The place was completely “Sold Out” for this unique event.Add a comment
As you can see, our collection of X1/9s at this year's AGM at Gaydon caused quite a stir. Or maybe the crowds were more interested in the last flight of the Vulcan bomber! No matter, it was a really positive AGM, so thanks to everyone for attending. Minutes will follow in due course and Ray and Sharon Taylor have provided a great write up which will appear on the website soon...Add a comment
