Once again it’s time for the UK Crossfires Club Winter Warmer, this year returning to the Cotswolds for its unrivalled charm and scenery. Our base will be the “Gateway to the Cotswolds, the busy but beautiful town of Burford.
It would be a great pleasure to have your company at this event. You can choose to make a weekend of it and arrive on the Saturday, making time to explore the town and shops, and later, meeting up at the Golden Pheasant for an evening of chatting, eating and drinks.
Alternatively, you can choose to arrive on Sunday, in time for the morning Crossfire Cruise, or just go straight to our lunch venue, the Windmill Carvery Restaurant. This weekend is flexible and you can choose the best option for you.
Burford itself has a broad main High Street lined with old houses, traditional Cotswold inns, hotels and pubs and shop fronts which appear to have changed little for hundreds of years. Take time to explore the side streets and snatch glimpses of hidden treasures through fascinating alleyways and courtyards between the seventeenth and eighteenth century buildings. See the majesty of the cathedral like parish church built from the wealth of the wool trade.
Due to the continued growth of our group, now with over 400 Crossfires owners involved, we believe the time has come to create a recognized motor club for owners of the Chrysler Crossfire. We believe this will promote an increased interest in our much loved cars, and provide a focal point for owners and enthusiasts far into the future. The new club will be known as the "UK Crossfires Club". The format of the club will continue largely as it has done previously, but with the additional benefit of a robust structure, and a professional approach to the organisation of all our activities, along with some proactive marketing to raise the profile of the club and build future membership.
The UK Crossfire group met up at the National Heritage Motor Museum at Gaydon to celebrate an important milestone for the Chrysler Crossfire.
Did you know that 2013 is the 10th anniversary of the launch of the Crossfire? It’s amazing that these cars have been on our roads for so long and as the only club in the UK representing the marque, it’s out duty to celebrate the occasion with a meet dedicated to this milestone.
With the Chrysler Crossfire going out of production the question of the availability of spare parts was bound to come into question. Indeed, body panels, trim, interior parts and mechanical components were never easily obtainable from dealers when the cars were still in the showroom. We now hear of instances where Crossfires are being written off due parts shortages and the exorbitant cost of any items having to be obtained abroad. As the Chrysler Dealerships lost interest in the car, stocks of new spares has dwindled; over the last few years much has been disposed of through eBay etc; some bargains were found for anyone wanting to store parts for possible future use.
