Sure, John, Lyon is not exactly next door to yours. But located around the center of France, all in all a good show with a "spirit" like Rétromobile had a very long while ago. Many merchants making good business, no dress code, no "people", relaxed ambiance. Well, not to many people because Parisians fed up with the big show appreciate Lyon more and more. And the prices level have nothing to see with Paris, of course. And the food is great!

As to Weber parts, we know the same situation here. Sebastien Crubilé, renowned Porsche re-builder, has an old friend who makes them from scratch with a lathe formerly dedicated to jewelry. Then every part is checked via a vacuum trough. Accurate and cheaper than we might think. I guess this kind of thing can be made in England better than here. If the idea can help. About Dell'Orto parts, nobody can reproduce them here.

It's still a long way when I'm not going to make any money out of it! I'll need to save more than just a few pennies if I'm ever going to be able to afford one of those nice new Jaguar D- or E-Types I saw being built on Saturday............

I'm more likely to do Interclassics Brussels next month.

Traveling up through Spain from Portimao I’ve now stopped twice for diesel . The locals seem to drink beer and watch old black and white westerns over here . Might as well join them . Stopped for night just past Salamanca . 200 miles to go in morning to Bilbao

Miserable day to be driving a truck up through France- pouring with rain a lot of the time, windy, and perishing cold. Then just to trump the weather, I get to a decent sized service area with restaurant to find that the eating establishment is well and truly a building site.....

All the Autoroute gantries were warning of ‘neige’ as well. Good job I don’t know what that is.

Coach loads of teenagers just descended and not got earplugs with me, but at least the WiFi works.......

No rain or neige this far north (yet), Mike. Bloomin' cold though.

No, I can't say I knew that. Since it's Romania there should probably be a 'y' towards the end of Pikes...!!
