The club is pleased to announce that we have been given the opportunity to attend an event in Kent, the Hamstreet Festival of Transport on the Sunday 12th June.
This is a new event for the club and local member Mike Webster is offered his services in helping to arrange the day.
It is that time of the year to remind you of our most popular meet of the year, IWM Duxford Spring Car Show.
Each and every year attendance for this event grows with over 35 cars last year making the trip to this excellent venue. We have been granted the same unique parking area as last year, affectionately known as the turning circle. This area is separate from the main parking areas giving us a prime position to show of our cars.
Following feedback from the recent survey we will be holding both National and Regional events.
The National events will be totally organised by the club with Regional events being hosted by local members who have kindly offered their services to help organise.
As always this information may be subject to change but we believe that this is unlikely. Of course, we will be sending out further information closer to the event dates but please make a note in your diaries of these dates.
The club 2016 calendar is now available to order at a price of £9.95 including postage.
We thought it worth while letting you know of a potential issue related to our cars. You may have read in the national press about a Crossfire that set on fire shortly after the owner purchased it. Coincidentally one of our committee members had spotted an issue with the fuel line on his car. We are passing on this information from Karl Edmondson.

Given the fact a Crossfire suddenly caught fire due to a fuel problem it may be worth checking your cars. All you need to do is jack up the rear offside wheel, take off the wheel then you can check the lines all around the fuel pump and filter. Don’t just look at the lines feel the lines for signs of any wear.
UK Crossfires Club
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.
