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.

No doubt you will have visited this location, if not then add it to your “Must Do List”! The range, scope and Presentation simply is breathtaking; impossible describe without some photographs . . . so here they are . . .
