Join AROnline for its 10th anniversary bash at Gaydon.
Join AROnline for its 10th Anniversary bash at Gaydon.

The anniversary gathering is still scheduled for Saturday 16 July at the Heritage Motor Centre at Gaydon and you’re all invited. I’ll be there with my Rover SD1 and will be on-hand to answer any questions and talk about the creation of www.austin-rover.co.uk, and its development into AROnline.

We’ll also be talking about what the future holds in store.

Bring your car – whatever it is – and come along to say ‘hi’. The event takes place from 10.00am to 5.00pm and the museum is offering a full English breakfast at the discounted rate of £7.20 to all people visiting through AROnline as well as a discounted entrance fee of £8.00, which you can pay directly to them.

We’ll be touring the exhibits and then there will be a short talk about the site in the museum’s cinema, as well as a special surprise guest. We’ll be giving a small prize for the owner of the coolest, best or most interesting Car of the Day and there will also be a general knowledge quiz, the winner of which will get themselves a prize that money can’t buy. Please let us know you’re coming (and whether you’re having breakfast) on here or via AROnline’s Facebook page so we can confirm numbers to Gaydon.

However, if you don’t know yet, no problems, just turn up on the day!

  1. Hi, I plan on coming in my Morris Minor – it will great to do a tour of the exhibits and here some anecdotes. Cheers, Paul.

  2. I’m still planning on being there in my 75. I will have to get a B&B sorted! Oh, and the MoT is due on the 28th July. I’ll get it done early before the event.

  3. The last time I visted Gaydon was in a Mercedes and this time I might quite possibly be in a BMW. Could you do the lynching quietly please?

  4. £7.25 for breakfast? Are they serious?? Is it on gold plates, with the finest silver cutlery and linen tablecloths, served by Amazonian godesses? If the latter, count me in.

  5. I’m planning on bringing the 114 Cabrio. I might also bring an SD1, but not of the Rover variety. 🙂

    I’m still on course to come – I’ve got my car booked for its MoT on the 4th July at a rather interesting, specialist Land Rover Service Centre I’ve discovered just five or ten minutes walk from work. Now, do I book a B&B or bring the tent?!

  7. I can’t be there on the day, but have a great time. The Heritage Motor Centre is a fabulous place and AROnline’s the best car website around so what more could anyone want!

  8. I’ll be there – I might even fork out (!) for the gold-plated breakfast. No classic though – just my Range Rover Sport!

  9. Some old metal will be there – I’ll bring the P4 complete with its almost as old owner. I may not be able to get there until late morning, though.

  10. Sounds like an excelent day, I intend to be there, although this may not be until mid morning as I am relying on public transport to get there from North West London. Please say hi to both me and my guide dog Kira if you see us – perhaps I should consider renaming her “Princess” in honour of the day. Anyway, I’m looking forward to reaquainting myself with some BL metal from the 70’s and 80’s which is the era I
    remember, and also meeting some of you from AR online.

    Cheers
    Angus.

  11. I was really looking forward to coming but I’m afraid I won’t be able to make it after all.
    I’ll have to make do with a couple of local classic car shows.
