The 1100 Club’s Spring Show for 2024 will take place at the Bubble Car Museum near Boston in Lincolnshire on Drive It Day, which is 21st April. Entry to the rally field on the day is free, but visitors would be strongly encouraged to visit the museum, which costs just £4 per adult to enter, or £1 per child, and also offers a paper guidebook to tell you about the cars on show for an additional £1. Inside the museum there are over fifty microcars on display, many in thought provoking dioramas and including examples of Bond, Isetta, Reliant, Frisky and Bamby, to name but a few. There is also a row of recreated shops for visitors to explore, memorabilia, a gift shop and a café, which is great for afternoon tea and also offers a few simple lunches. For anything more substantial, there is a cafe about a mile down the road called Langrick Station café. We are hoping that there will be some Bubble Car rides available on the day, which cost £15 for a 15-20 minute spin - when else would you have the chance to be a passenger in something so tiny? The full address of the museum for navigation is: The Bubblecar Museum, Clover Farm, Main Rd, Langrick, Boston, Lincolnshire, PE22 7AW. Non-members in visiting classics are very welcome to come along and join us - the museum is open to the public on the day as normal so the more the merrier!

Leyland Society Gathering 2024

British Commercial Vehicle Museum, Leyland, Lancashire
10:00
Following the success of the 2023 Gathering, we will return to Leyland this year and the British Commercial Vehicle Museum have kindly agreed to host our event on Sunday 7th July 2024. This year will celebrate the 60th anniversary of two major Leyland products, the Ergomatic cab and Leyland Panther bus chassis. The Ergomatic cab was introduced on Leyland, AEC and Albion trucks in 1964 and significantly improved driver comfort on the Leyland Group models. Similarly, the Panther was one of the first rear underfloor engine models introduced to the British market and was supplied to many operators throughout the country. Attendance of these vehicle types at our event would be especially appreciated to help celebrate these milestones. Vehicle entry forms can be downloaded from the Leyland Society website here: http://www.leylandsociety.co.uk/gathering.htm All Leyland buses and lorries are welcome to attend and as well as vehicles produced by other Leyland Group companies (e.g. AEC, Albion, BMC, Bristol, Daimler, Guy, Thornycroft, Scammell, etc.). Please note that the closing date for entries will be Friday 9th June to allow sufficient time to send event information to vehicle entrants. To ensure entry to the event and avoid disappointment, entry forms must be returned in good time. Overnight parking can be provided in the museum car park, but no facilities will be available. Parking space will be limited, so entrants wishing to leave their vehicle at the museum overnight must indicate this on the entry form. Unfortunately, due to limited space, we will not be able to offer facilities for transporter unloading this year so all vehicles will have to arrive under their own power. We look forward to seeing a great turnout in July.
