On August 3rd we are meeting at the Kelvedon Hatch Secret Bunker in Essex.
This privately owned ex government and military facility is unique with its labyrinth of corridors hidden behind the façade of a bungalow.
Our meeting time is the usual 10.30ish and the admission is £6.50 per adult for our group - note that the venue is unable to take credit/debit cards. The link is www.secretnuclearbunker.com
Sadly, we will not be attending this show. Our booking was cancelled because we were only planning on attending for one day.
Appologies to anyone looking forward to attending this event with us.
We will be visiting Chatsworth House again one of the most beautiful country houses with magnificent grounds. Due to its location we plan to make this an overnight visit with a drive around the local countryside on Saturday afternoon. Website is www.chatsworth.org .
Details in full to follow.
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.
