It's a Ford Duratec 30 (or Mazda AJ if you're into JDM). Commenly found in most Ford V6 powered cars as well as the Jaguar S-Type, Lincoln LS, Mazda 6 and Ford Mondeo ST220.

@Nachtfuchs: You have PM :)

@Fawks Beaumont: It has a V, therefore it makes all the right noises, bring it along :P


To everyone else: I was thinking that sometime between 11am and 2pm would be a good time, as this gives people time to wake up and get breakfast/get rid of hangovers, and should hopefully be before any major events or socialising starts in the afternoon. I've asked Nightfox to see if there's a day when this meetup would clash with the least amount of events (although given EF's busy schedule, this is no easy task for him, sorry ^.^; ). Any thoughts from anyone else on times they'd like considered? I'd cautiously advise against Sunday though, as most people will probably still be dead from the BigBlueDance :P

Sounds like a reasonable time window. I wonder if Friday evening (after the barbecue) would work as well?

I'm going to have to give The Volvo a very thorough clean under the bonnet, but I'll wait until around June or July when the weather is warm and dry before I do ;)

Hi guys,

I'm new to all of this, but if you don't mind I would / could join you. I just hope my Ascona will be allright in due time (Cavalier MK2 for the UK ;-) ), otherwise I'll attend with my Vectra (Cavalier MK3). :-)

Any and all are welcome to attend, with or without their cars :)

All that is needed now is to decide on a day and time *pokes a busy Nachtfuchs for input, then hides* :P

I'm thinking that perhaps Friday, 11am to 12pm/1pm-ish, depending on how many attend and how long people hang around for, would be a good time? Gives people time to wake up of a morning and sober up/have breakfast etc., before heading to the lower car park area, which is where we should aim to hold the meet as there is more room.

I'd also suggest that we stick to some basic rules, such as no dangerous driving - wheelspins, burnouts etc, as this will cause unnecessary noise nuisance to other attendees and possible damage to other vehicles if there is a loose road surface from flying gravel/stones etcetera. Engine revving, whilst showing off the noise of the car (especially if tuned), should be kept to a minimum, no constant/extended bouncing off the rev limiter - once again for noise concerns. Also, people may leave cars/windows open for others to take a look inside, don't just take this as an invite to climb in - please speak to the owner before leaning on/getting into any vehicle. I would suggest that unless with the car, owners keep keys with them on their person at all times when away from the vehicle.

@ All: If you think of any other safety/behaviour rules, please post them here so that we can keep track of them, and so that the EF staff can put them with the event description if there is enough room for an entry in the conbook.

@Nightfox: Is this a good time to avoid clashes with any other major events? Also, is there any chance you could slot it into the con timetable, and would there be the possibility of a small description including safety rules?

I got one. If someon has got a small disco built in their car, try to keep the music at an acceptable limit. This little gathering is just to watch and talk about cars and not to show off your way of killing your hearing.

Yeah I'd be game for meeting some of the gang. However I can't bring my own ride (as its a bit to expensive to ship it from California) Hopefully AVIS will give me a nice rental to drool over. XD


For the record, my ride is a Honda Fit (called the Honda Jazz in Europe) 1.5.

Well, if an old Volvo 244GL (1983) in it's original state (so no special engine tricks, just the good old indestructable B23A) is worth seeing, I'll be joining. Maybe provide a corner for the 'classics'? I've seen a nice old Ford (orange-black) on the parking lot at EF13-EF14... And maybe some other furs might have an 'oldie' (A DS would be awesome, or an old Benz 380, or whatever that is older then 20 years) capable of driving them to EF?!?

My 1992 Ford Probe I 2.2 GT sadly crashed and went to scrap three month ago  :'(

@ Kyyanno

Are the furballers gonna have their own section? May consider getting a Furball Banner and doing the group shot at the same time  :P
