The Chatter this Week at LBCarCo (September 03, 2017)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
LBCarCo Chatter - Adventure XVI - Beaulieu..Goodwood Revival and Cotswolds

We departed the US last Wednesday for our 16th annual group trip and arrived at London Heathrow very, very early Thursday morning. This was a day ahead of the rest of the group who would be arriving on Friday. Our planned activities didn't begin until Saturday morning, giving everyone time to rest and recover from jet lag before starting out. We spent the time relaxing and getting reacquainted at the comfortable Premier Inn right next to Heathrow. Then Saturday morning one of our favorite coach drive, Ken Short with Blake's Coaches arrived right on time. He managed to get all the luggage loaded - but just barely! We have a full coach of 53 people.

Our only stop on Saturday was the Brooklands Museum, at the birthplace of British Motorsport. Auto racing took place here on Britain's first purpose built race track from the early 1900s up until the start of World War II, when the site converted to aircraft production. The track barely exists anymore, having been replaced by housing and commercial sites. But the museum keeps the history of early racing and automotive developments alive through a number of interesting displays. Museum docent Maddie began our visit with an informative talk and then we spent the afternoon exploring the automotive and air exhibits.

Then we were off to our hotel in Winchester where we will stay for the next week. After the inevitable confusion of checking in people to 28 rooms at the same time, we all got our keys and got luggage to the rooms. Time now to check out the hotel facilities, the best of which is a peaceful walled garden, a rarity in the middle of a city. It will be the perfect place to socialize - when the weather is as nice as it was on Saturday. Most everyone gathered in the garden with a beverage from the bar to while away the time before dinner.

We had a group dinner that evening where everyone introduced themselves to the group so old-timers learned a bit about the new-timers and vice versa. Then everyone turned in early in anticipation of an early start on Sunday morning. This was the day to visit the Beaulieu International Autojumble, an event that draws owners of classic British cars from all over the world. As luck would have it, the weather turned out to be 'typically British' with rain all day. We made the best of it and people walked many of the aisles of traders' booths selling just about anything automotive - and more! When we needed to dry off, the restaurant was a welcome retreat for anything from a cup of coffee to a hot meal.

All the attractions at Beaulieu were also open and included with admission to the autojumble - the excellent National Motor Museum, Beaulieu House, Beaulieu Abbey, the gardens, the monorail, the World of Top Gear exhibit - and of course the gift shop. So there was plenty to see. Some people found bits that they were looking for while most took in all the sights. After lots of walking, the bus ride back was very quiet. We had another group dinner to wind up the weekend. On Monday we'll begin a few days of non-auto related sightseeing, including some of the 'best of Britain.'

Monday we enjoyed two visits to places near to Winchester. In the late morning, after a leisurely breakfast, we headed to the village of Kintbury and the Kennett Horse Boat Company. Here we enjoyed a ride on a typical canal longboat, powered by Monty, a 10 year old Welsh Cob. It was a pleasant two hour trip through a quiet stretch of the Kennett & Avon Canal. We entered one lock,and the water was lowered and then the lock gates were opened and the boat went into a wider stretch of the canal to turn around. The procedure was repeated in reverse and we headed back while enjoying a buffet lunch that included delicious sandwiches, mini quiches, Scotch eggs and pork pies.

On the way back to Winchester we visited a stately home, Avington Park. While the estate dates back to the 10th century, the current home dates to the mid 1600s when the property was owned by a courtier of Charles II. The king and his mistress Nell Gwynne were entertained here. Later the home passed to the Duke of Buckingham and then to the family of poet Percy Bysshe Shelley. We had a guided tour of the public areas of the house (it is still lived in by the family that acquired it in 1951, the Hicksons), a demonstration of the unique barrel organ in the church on the grounds (think of a music box on a really large scale) topped off by coffee and homemade cake in the lovely conservatory.

Both activities allowed ample time for socializing and relaxing. And, after a rather overcast morning, the sun came out and made for a lovely finish to the day.

More to come next week from our current Adventure so stay tuned.

LBCarCo Adventure 2018 is now open for reservations. Come and see the Tulips and Rhine River Cruise

Our 2011 group trip included a wonderful day cruise on the Rhine. That made us think how wonderful it would be to spend a week on the river, enjoying the various places and sights along the way. After looking at several companies (they all looked very nice, some had better features in one area or another) we finally decided on Viking River Cruises April 25 sailing from Basel, Switzerland to Amsterdam, Holland. This date will allow us a post-cruise stay in Amsterdam - in time for tulip season! These River Boats are small so it will be a very nice intimate gathering. So far we have 20 cabins that are booked. (There really is no set limit until the boat is full :)

Our travel agent has taken this exact cruise and could not fault anything. Viking also has what seems to be the best air program - allowing for the post-cruise stay in Amsterdam, $395 per person from many departure cities. (THE AIRFARE DEAL EXPIRES THE END OF JULY, but Viking could continue it, though it is not guaranteed.) Viking also offers a 2 night per-cruise stay in Lucerne which will give everyone time to adjust to jet lag and enjoy this beautiful lakeside Swiss city.

Our travel agent, Angie LaValle of World of Travel in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan has blocked a group of rooms on the Viking long-ship Idi, sailing on April 25, 2018 for seven nights. To include the pre-cruise say in Lucerne, the departure date from North America would be Sunday, April 22. Return to the US (or Canada) would be on Sunday, May 6.

On this cruise you will visit the highlights of the legendary Rhine. You will see riverbank castles as you sail by and tour both Marksburg Castle and the ruins of Heidelberg Castle. Enjoy the scenic cruise along the Middle Rhine, home of the legendary "Lorelei." Visit Cologne, the jewel of the Rhine with it awe inspiring cathedral, and experience the lush Black Forest landscape. You'll tour multicultural Strasbourg in France and enjoy the nightlife in Rudesheim's "Drosselgrasse." And finish by exploring Holland's windmills and waterworks. Tours, led by knowledgeable local guides, to all of these are included along with a culture curriculum - with activities such as classical music, a cooking demonstration, glassblowing demonstration, and informative talks. What else is included?

7 nights accommodation in outside staterooms with river view
All port charges and taxes
Three meals daily featuring local specialties (along with American classics)
Wine, beer and soft drinks included with lunch and dinner
Specialty coffee & tea available 24 hours
Laundry service
Bottle water replenished daily
Wi-Fi
In room TV with movies on demand

On-board facilities include the Viking Lounge with piano entertainment, Viking Bar, a library, sun deck and walking track.

Here are the cruise prices per person:
Window Cabins from $3,324 to $3,424 per person
French Balcony cabins from $3,624 to $3,824 per person
Balcony cabins from $4,024 to $4,224 per person
Veranda suites are $5,824 per person

The pre-cruise stay in Lucerne will be $699 per person and includes hotel, breakfasts, guided walking tour, services of a Viking host and transfers - airport to hotel and hotel to ship. Each cabin on the ship will also receive an on-board credit of $250 to spend as you wish on extras such as cocktails or optional tours.

The deposit is $500 per person when you book. The $395 for airfare needs to be paid by the end of July - unless the offer is extended. Final cruise payment is due October 25.

We will plan a 4 night post-cruise stay in Amsterdam to include the annual tulip display at Kuekenhof Gardens, the Anne Frank house, canal cruises, and more. Once our 2017 trip is completed, we can start on the plans for these 4 days. The cost for this (hotel and activities) will be determined then but we can assure you it will be a good value while providing comfortable and convenient accommodations.

If you have always wanted to experience a river cruise - and would like to join a wonderful group of British car folks, we would love to have you join the group. If you want to book, please call Angie Lavalle at 888-268-7500 and drop me an email to let me know as well. Her email address is
angie@askourcruiseagents.com. If you have any questions, drop us a line at jan@LBCarCo.com .

Spam or Not to Spam

In this day and age Spam is not a good thing as we all know, but at one time it was the main staple to feed our troops in the field. Somehow this word has now been attached to unwanted emails. Our Chatter can also be viewed as Spam by some folks that get it when we send a NewsFlash or Chatter. PLEASE if you decide you don't want our emails rather than choosing to block it click on the link at the top of the Chatter or NewsFlash that says:

"To unsubscribe from our mailing list, please click here."

You will be automatically removed from our list no questions asked. Some folks enjoy reading the Chatter, which includes tech tips, event listings and more, but if you decide to block our newsletters with your Spam Blocker this sends a Blacklist warning to many ISP's and can prevent other folks from receiving our information.

Thanks in advance for your consideration.

On The Borderline by Rick Astley/116

Our good friend Rick Astley of British Car Electrical Book fame also has a funny side when he is not delving into the electrical issues of British automotive mysteries.

Rick has been doing these cartoons for our local MG Club for years and I thought that they might be cute to share and Rick gave us permission to publish them. They tend to be leaning to the Detroit/Windsor area but I think they are very humorous and as you can see Rick and his MGB along with his lovely wife are usually the personalities in the cartoons. They are all in fun and we hope you enjoy.

Oversize Shipping

On April 11, 2013 We were notified by Moss that their oversize fee structure would be put into place that day. (it has always been there to some extent, but now is formal.) This has been coming for some time now since the cost of shipping has steadily been rising and the carriers have continued to reduce the size requirements for standard packaging.

You will notice when you check out on our website (also on the Moss website and in the new Moss catalogs - available for PDF downloading on their or our website - click on the car logos to download) oversize parts are indicated and the extra cost for shipping them. Note there may be some parts that they have have not indicated as oversize but actually are. If they charge us for an oversize fee we may have to bill you for the fee and will then add it to the oversize fee notations on our site for future reference (we are never told in advance.)

LBCarCo always will attempt to give you the best prices and shipping rates whenever possible and we are also looking for avenues to save you, our customers money. Some of these cost saving methods are our Loyalty Program, slight delays in shipping to consolidate your order for more economical shipping when possible, shipping by a different carrier such as post when possible and more. We will be constantly monitoring this new program and will tweak it as needed.

This is very rare but on orders shipped by air that are over oversize, by weight or dimensions, we reserve the right to charge actual shipping. Usually shipments via air are considered oversize if over 12 x 12 x 12". Please ask us for a quote on air shipping in advance or we will notify you if you have requested this on your order by checking the confirm carriage before shipping block.

All quotations on shipping are approximate since actual shipping cost may vary some depending on fuel surcharges, actual size and weight once packed and when the order is actually shipped. Every effort has been made to provide accurate information. We reserve the right to correct typographical errors and will not be held liable for inaccuracy of pricing, descriptions or applications.

Lever Shocks Leaking? Try This.

For lever action shocks when they start to leak or just when refilling, use motorcycle shock fluid, the kind used for filling front end shocks on motorcycles. It contains a chemical that swells the rubber slightly and therefore stops the leaks.
