    I'm also Lincolnshire born so no comment there. As for God's country ,well that's got to be Scotland or Canada [which is Scotland on a bigger scale] Can't decide which!
    Obviously never visited Birmingham and the West Midlands conurbation!

    Seems to me its about time some Marliners visited Brecon Beacons Prescelli Hills and Tenby areas to see the real Gods Country in all its magnificence.

    As I appear to be the only Marlin owner to benefit from such a beautiful part of the UK

    You can keep Birmingham and The Black country with all its dirty polluted roads litter and yellow lines ,I will keep to the clean fresh air and open countryside

    Which is occasionally marred by the smell of hamburgers but that,s only when there is a strong Westerly wind from America

    Today is occupancy day for my new Marlin garage fits like a glove and the garage can be rolled forward to facilitate easy access [ATTACH]9476[/ATTACH

    Looks right at home there. Amen to the scenery and open roads of Little England and Tafarn Sinc at Rosebush one of the loveliest pubs ever. Its too long since I was down there.

    You smug self satisfied swine, looking really good and there was me getting my roadster ready to tax for Easter , just as the snow is due. Pembroke will probably have heat wave till late November with rain only falling after dark. Do I sound jealous? Well I am!

    Hi Burnside, don't let the fact you are a 'newbie' put you off planning a club event. Like numerous 'older' club members I have organised a few weekends in Suffolk so have a reasonable idea of what works and what doesn't. Feel free to contact me for a chat if you wish. Contact details in Pitstop.

    Finished a big service today. Usual oil and filter change plus cambelt, fan belt and new coolant.
    After many years I have managed to obtain a fan belt of exactly the right size. I have been using one a bit too short which required the alternator pulley to be removed to change it. In the past "the next size up", according to some motor factors, allowed the alternator casing to touch the steering shaft. Both problems solved now.
    (Yes, I did fit a new cambelt tension idler pulley.)
    My engine was refurbished by Vulcan. They always required me to use Valvolene VR1 oil. It is becoming hard to find here so I rang Steve at Vulcan for an alternative. They haven't been recommending this for a year. They now use Castrol Classic XL 20/50. I have obtained this from Opie oils via a remarkably fast service. Of note, Opie will give discount to car club members, but, the Marlin Owners Club is not registered with them......yet.
    Ready for Stoneleigh now.
