bomber county minis

Post  adi on Sun Apr 17, 2011 8:45 am

I can't help but notice how active the bomber county mini's are now the sun is shining again, and I can't help but think it would be awesome if we could arrange some kind of joint meet with them? Is anyone on their forum who can find out their meeting place?

i agree it would be a plan

i was on the way home from xsite in skegness today on the way to lincln and 12 minis went past me, the first one was SLAMMED with extended arches which must have been at least 10 inches wide either side. it looked mad.

Hello from BCM :P

Post  mini_legend on Mon May 30, 2011 8:15 pm

I guess non of yor braved our forum or our facebook page!!
I can stick the idea onto our forum/group email if any of you are interested in a joint run out somewhere. 11 minis are going out to IMM shortly all the way to switzerland (how many of you would make that Razz haha) so would have to be later in the year, say July.
Also, I'm guessing some of you guys will be doing USC at santa pod, and surely a few of you have minis too?? I mean, who can actually resist a real classic Wink
Anyway, hope to meet you guys sometime, where abouts do you meet.

Cheers
JK

i know of one member who has a mini and said he would join your site but hes a failure Laughing
i doubt anyone would be up for going to switzerland.
but a joint meet would be nice as it would be some more people might turn up,
also im sure more of us would have minis if they werent so expensive and didnt rot away at the first thought of damp. Razz
not going to louth classic car show,its the same weekend as skegvegas.

also what brought you here?

Would be good. Ahh right, skegvegas being a festival at skeggy right?? lol
They do rust, but hey, a car is only as good as the person looking after it, well apart from Prius's and Lancias, built with rust lol.
Came here as one of our members googled bomber county minis and found you, and I nearly bought VW campervan as a project when I got my whit mini, but for a project in similar condition to my mini(when I got it) I would have struggled pay less than a few grand, not £500 Razz You can still get fair priced minis, and parts are mostly cheap, being british made! Razz But, minis do require a lot of patience and a hell of an addiction lol.
Ohh, and when I get rich, and get my VW splitscreen campervan, I'll be popping round your way sometime. Do you meet at a set point and date, might pop along sometime Smile

ahh, I like a forum where swear words aren't ***** out lol!
Got much to do on the mini then mate ?? and yes, all mini owners (most) but all bomber county minis are a good set of guys. I think we need to find an old (RAF Razz ) airfield and have a top gear style Mini vs Dubs day!??? I think it'd be a great idea, but that's just me lol.
Cheers for the happy welcome (apart from the guy who posted about minis being small and unsafe blah blah blah lol, he probably wouldn't want to come along!) lol

i'll have to join up at some point thanks for the link....

hav'nt got too much to do to the mini shell as it stands but then the fun begins with all the running gear as i'm not using mini running gear im im honest.... dont want to let too much on as its going to be a low key build untill its done but it is an extreme budget build packed with fruity goodness combining two great cars into 1.....

an airfield would be an awsome idea and i'm well up for anything ( within reason ) whats ur forum name on bombercountymini's i'll find you when i've joined up

My forum name on bcm is truebrit_jk or something like that ! lol.
basically, I got tugged by the law for a 'true brit, no german Shit' sticker I have on my mini lol. 5 months on, its still there, but i live close to the edge me Razz
Someone had to bridge the gap haha, good to forge new links in the classic car world, plus, would like a bug and a campervan at some point Smile
Airfield would be great, but would need planning, probably couldn't just turn up haha!
Join our facebook page too, just search bomber county minis into facebook Smile
And roccy, I am intrigued by you VW/mini resto, and get the feeling it is going to be something special! lol

Ever thought of using RAF Strubby nr. Woodthorpe? I think (its been a while since i went) it has a fair bit of runway left?
Because theres an aquatics place on it in one of the hangers, might be worth a look?
Plenty of space for us all there id say Smile
