Out with Trevor Cooper checking out the view from the venue for the fish and chip run on the Cumbria Comeback Rally before the reeds are cut back.

Gave it a service, stowed some tools and took it for a run in the sun

I towed something with it for the first time: my caravan, 1 mile to a local campsite!



Total success! I didn't notice the load.

Nipped out for a quick “working from home” Pub lunch with friends primarily to go over the route up for next week - the only topic of conversation we didn’t cover.

Went for a trundle out in the drizzle and went to Lidl. Loved every min of it, apart from the shopping part

Helping my local Shakespeare company with the 'get in' for their upcoming summer outdoor production of As You Like It.

The Station Wagon is the only vehicle that could get to the upper level at the location, up a very greasy dirt track. Did numerous runs with it loaded with gazebos, chairs, scenery and about 15cwt of cabling for the lights.

Even used it to climb on to put the roof on the tech hut that can be seen in the background.

Reamed the chassis holes to size, pressed in the Clutch crossshaft bearings and reamed them to suit the crossshaft

More loads to drive up the slippery slope for the 'get in'.

Part of a collapsible shipping container on the roof.  I'm glad that there is no tropical roof fitted!
And a load of interval refreshment for the audience.

Also replaced the fan belt on my 80".  It's a genuine NOS Rover part 248576, made by Good Year, and bought by me from Dunsfold in 1997.  They don't seem to last very long   ;D  I noticed it was broken some years ago, but it's been like that for years so I didn't bother changing it before my trip to the rally in the Lakes.  I knew it would last OK but decided to try a club shop item.  I will report back on its longevity in 2045.

Parked beside a TVR Cerberus at pub on way back. There is a connection the engine is a rover v8 derivative ( i think ?)

Hi Alan,
TVR fitted either a Straight 6 or V8 to the Cerbra, both engines there own design.

Rover V8 were fitted to prior vehicles.
