Re: Rickman camping weekend / get together

Well, only three responses on the official owners club forum. I guess the question "why dont we organise more social events?" that was asked at the AGM has been answered... I'll continue to update with developments on here, but it looks like the main takers for this are non members via the facebook ...

Re: New addition - Green Ranger-gctid4021

This time, it was the Lands End Trial. i dont often get to compete in this one, as it is normally at the same time as the family holiday in Wales. this year however, it didn't clash, so with Simon back in the navigators seat, we embarked on the trial. for the full lowdown of the trial you'll have to...

Re: New addition - Green Ranger-gctid4021

a bit more on the last exeter.... we failed on the second hill with the car cutting out and refusing to start. after being unceremoniously dragged out of the section by a tractor, we set about diagnosing the fault and effecting repairs. the first issue was found to be the starter motor lead hanging ...

Re: New addition - Green Ranger-gctid4021

following on from my last post, i managed to do very little with the car due to life and mould disposal getting in the way. with the moulds sorted, we entered the Exeter trial last january. this time with my wife Kerry in the navigators seat. it didn't go well... we had a mediocre trial, with nothin...

Rickman camping weekend / get together

Hi everyone, there have been a few people asking about meet ups and camping trips for the rickman owners recently, and also at the AGM last weekend. I have tried in the past to organise something, but have been met with a stony wall of silence. because of this, nothing has ever gotten off the ground...

Re: National Kit Car Show and Club AGM

Whilst I would love you to attend on the monday, I will say that it was very thin on the ground on our stand last year :-( the show is still running on the monday, and there...

Re: Convertible Hardtop

they do come up from time to time, but as you say - rare as hens teeth! i did have one on yours at one point, but i found it made the car feel a little claustrophobic. strange really, as the saloon doesn't feel like that. probably just my weird head lol one thing to note though - they weigh a good 5...
