We’ve taken our cars to various places around the country. Here is a list of meets and events that we have been to in the past.
Twenty Two gleaming Crossfires turned out for a fantastic day in the sunshine at Blenheim Palace. This splendid stately home provided a spectacular backdrop to our meet with the cars displayed at the main formal gated entrance to the house. The ancestral home to the Dukes of Marlborough, and currently the home of the 11th Duke and Duchess, Blenheim Palace is the birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill and a World Heritage Site.
The group met in glorious sunshine for a record-breaking Crossfire meet at the Imperial War Museum, Duxford. 24 Crossfires were in attendance, an amazing turn out, and well and truly beating our old record of 19 cars. May be it was the beautiful sunshine, or the added attractions of this fantastic venue, but the line-up of Crossfires was a fantastic sight! It was a great pleasure to meet so many new friends and welcome them as new members of the group.
As an extra outing we took up an invitation to visit ACD Breakers near Oswaldtwistle, Lancashire. Why visit a breakers yard we asked? Well, going by the feedback we get from owners struggling to locate Crossfire parts, and the willingness of insurance companies to write off these cars without a second thought, it is now clear that going forward there will be a growing reliance on the use of used parts to keep the Crossfire on the road. Up until recently, finding used spare parts has been very difficult with examples of crash damaged examples being very rare. And of course we don’t relish the prospect of climbing over wrecked cars with a spanner, trying to find parts to keep our pride and joy on the road, but thankfully those days are gone.
