Happy New Year

Instead of lying on the sofa moaning about the rubbish on telly, ginga and Howard dug out the F100 and headed for Stony Stratford for the 2nd Vintage Stony New Year's Day meet. With set aside parking in the town centre for Pre-War and Post-War classics it offers a nice destination for a cobweb blowing run. A little drizzle made the journey over a little 'entertaining' but that's what makes it fun!

At which point my camera cried "hangover" and shut down so no pics of the Post-War classics or the comedy Town Crier handing out the awards.

Edit: Found more pics here and here
