Hi All

What a busy few weeks we have had!

Starting off with the Sunday Lunch at are old friends The Old Ram Coaching Inn on the A140, a good selection of cars and 24 sat down to eat drink and chat, some faces and characters too! Liobk to our fb page of images below;


Next up was an Italian cars and Coffee at the Liberator Café at Old Buckenham Airfield on the 30th March, another great turnout of cars (23 at least) and folks. Lots of Alfas Fiats a Maserati and even a Lancia 8.32 came out to play, more photos below;


Well as we were on a roll! The 7th April saw us in the west of the region at the Pike and Eel at Needingworth near St Ives for another Italian Cars and Coffee hosted by AROC East Anglia and brilliantly organised by Tony Wort, one of the section committee members. Tony got a fabulous group of cars together, probably around 40, plenty of Alfas, inc. 4c, Giulia’s, Sud Sprints Alfetta, 105’s 115’s Stelvio 159’s the lot plus a 1900 race car brought by Brunswick Motorsport! There were Fiat 500’s modern and a couple of the dinky originals, Abarths, Lancia, X19’s a Ferrari, Lambrettas and Vespas for the scooter lovers and then to top the lot and ISO Griffo. We will be doing this again later in the year. Well done Tony. Full image album below;
