  1. Just thought I'd post these photos up for comments. This car is standard, its how Toyota sold it - apart from the K&N panel air filter.
  2. Just a quick question... How do you remove the coloured piece (cover?) from the back of a passenger side mirror without damaging it? my car is a 2000 Avensis SR in Plum, so I'm eager to remove this without damaging it! Any help most appreciated!
  3. this is a shame - I've been to this event twice before, I know many people have been loads more time than this, and always had a great time.
  4. This looks good to me - see you about ten! (this years cider will be provided by Tesco - not Healeys cider farm!)
  5. Thanks guys, I have it now! Les gave me a big clue by sending the address to me!
  6. Ok, I have a question that may prove I'm blonder than I think.... Where is the CAE being held? I can't find an adress or postcode anywhere on this posting! It would be quite nice to know where the event is being held.... I'm not sure, but entering 'nice field with a swimming pool and MR2's in it' into my sat nav probably won't get me anywhere! ;) Also, what times are people looking to arrive? I have the day off so I could get there quite early.
  7. Ok guys, as we have 1 week to go , whats the arrangements (i.e., who's going, what time and where are we meeting up, or are we making our own way in and meeting up in the show, etc) Ok, I know, I worry too much!
  8. Last time I went (2009) I parked in the car park, but then found I could park in the show area with the other Toyotas - his might be a cheaper alternative to getting a club stand. I'd deffo be up for this if theres a club presence or not!
  9. I went to this show in 2009, and I hope to be going again this year. Is it just for a day or is there the possibility of camping overnight nearby? could be the nearest to an Eastern area meet! (joke)
  10. ARRRGGGHHHH!!!! This is so annoying, but I won't be able to make it after all - another commitment has come up, and dates are clashing left right and centre! :censor: I wish I could be there with you guys, but I have to be elsewhere - this year..... HOWEVER, I promise to be there next year definitley! Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause!

  12. :D I've been reading your list of attendees and theres a serious lack of AE100 Corollas of the 3 door variety! Bung my name down, I'll deffo be coming - if we can get this many people coming at short notice, its an amazing effort! :D Let me know if theres anything I can do / bring to help - I'll be at Mallory Park this weekend, but back on here again Monday.
  13. If TOC doesn't attend JAE then i have a new problem as i don't really go on other forums and i can't have a stand on my own I'm in the same boat - if theres no TOC stand, I won't go. Reading the posts on the past couple of pages, I think we COULD have a great stand this year - as long as we ignore the silly comments from those who don't know better.(those who pot comments on forums after the event, not anyone on here!) Theres enough people regularly posting on here to take a responsibility each instead of lumping it all on two people - so whos up for it?!
  14. I agree - I think we could have a great stand next year if we plan ahead a bit, but this year is dead. As I'm not affiliated with any other Jap car club (unlike other people ) I won't be attending - its just not worth it financially.
  15. Hi Les, I'll have the Indian meal for one £13.95 I'll send the payment via paypal as per the usual arrangement! I will need eithera navigator for the treasure hunt or I can be a navigator for someone if they would rather...!
  16. its starting to look that way! Is there anyone else goingso that we could at least meet up on site? I'd love to do a TOC stand, but I don't think the enthusiasam is there(PROVE ME WRONG!!!!!!) :ffs:
  17. as I recall, I was being gentlemany (and slightly drunk!) at the time! I also remember the security tag still on the bag for the tent after you'd 'brought' it! be great to see you again! Btw Les, hows the Saturday night meal menus looking? I intend to go with the majority! ;)
  18. Last years JAE stand looked like an advert for a Corolla Owners club.... Don't tell anyone but I think there was some mr2's, Yaris', Aygos, and an Avensis on the stand as well - not to mention the Hondas.....!! I think it was just how things went - maybe this year we'll get a load of Aygos! Yes I know its a bit worrying remembering what was on the stand last year..... I think there wern't that many Corollas actually!
  19. Ok, I've given this some thought..... If no one else wants to, I'm willing to organise (or, more realistically help organise) the TOC stand. HOWEVER!!!!!! I can't deal with advance tickets or anything with money, due to the limited time I have online, and the fact that I can't chase people up during the day about payments when I'm supposed to be stacking boxes. So, if anyone wants to take on this part of things..... I hope this offer is ok with everyone? If theres an alternative way the club wants to go then ok,I'll hrow my weight behind it. I feel that we need one stand for everyone who wants to go, it just gets messy and could lead to arguments if people find that they're on two different stands - or friends are all on one stand and they're not! :ffs: Hope that makes sense......
  20. I'd just like to say that, having been a Events organiser and a magazine editor for a different club (and now ex - member of same club), organising eents is the most thankless, frustrating, and complained about by other people job that anyone can do. I've had someone complain to me that they didn't havea ticket for an event, go out of my way to get them one, then have them have a right go at me because I got them a ticket! I can understand why Giddlepin wants to give up organising these great events, I don't think it should stop you guys going to the events, we just need someone (or some people ?) to take over this thankless task - stop pointing at me! How about - its just an idea - we make an effort to make this years JAE and CAE ones to remember for all the right reasons? I've only done 2 JAE's and one CAE but they are head and shoulders above any other event I've been to with another club I'm now an ex - member of. People are friendlier, the company is always good, and its good fun! So come on! lets make these events something to be happy about! :D Sorry for ranting......!
  21. Definitley up for this again this year - but I'll probably be drinking less this year! (nice sky though....! ) I'd like to help as much as I can, let me know if theres anything I can do or if theres anything I can bring along
  22. Ok, I won't bring the Mini! As long as no one brings the cinnamon!
  23. Greetings from Stowmarket! (Suffolk)
