Progress!

Well, sorry it's taken so long, but at last there is some progress on the 410. Work has finally started - hooray! There is a certain critical point, early on in the work, that needs to be OK before I can say that everything is certain to lead to a happy conclusion, but if everything goes according to plan we should be back on the road sometime in the new year. Once everything is finally sorted and going smoothly, I'll fill in the story so far and keep you updated as to what's involved in repairing a fairly bent 410. Top tip number one though - do try not to bend it in the first place if you can possibly avoid it...

In the meantime, here's a fantastic video from YouTube, featuring our favourite Bristol starring in the Inspector Lynley Mysteries. Thanks to Philippa on the BOC Forum for spotting it.



The song is The Bristol Stomp, by The Dovells - maybe it should be submitted to the Chairman as a candidate for club song?

The kids in Bristol are sharp as a pistol
When they do the Bristol Stomp

Really somethin when they join in jumpin

When they do the Bristol Stomp


Whoa, whoa they start spinnin every Friday night

They dance the greatest and they do it right

Well, it's the latest it's the greatest sight to see


The kids in Bristol are sharp as a pistol

(Whoa, oh, oh)
When they do the Bristol Stomp

(Whoa, oh, oh)

Really somethin when they join in jumpin

(Ah-ah-ah, whoa)

When they do the Bristol Stomp


Whoa, whoa it started in Bristol at a dee jay hop

They hollered and whistled never wanted to stop

We pony and twisted and we rocked with Daddy G


The kids in Bristol are sharp as a pistol

When they do the Bristol Stomp

(Whoa, oh, oh)

Really somethin when they join in jumpin

(Ah-ah-ah)

When they do the Bristol Stomp


(Duh-duh-doo)

It's got that groovy beat

That makes you stomp your feet

Come along and try

Gonna feel fine

And once you dance with me

You'll fall in love you see

The Bristol Stomp will make you mine

All mine


The stars are spinnin every Friday night

They dance the greatest if they do it right

But it's the latest it's the greatest sight to see


The kids in Bristol are sharp as a pistol

When they do the Bristol Stomp

(Whoa, oh, oh)

Really somethin when they join in jumpin

When they do the Bristol Stomp


It started in Bristol at a dee jay hop

They hollered and whistled
never wanted to stop
We pony and twisted
and we rocked with Daddy G

The kids in Bristol are sharp as a pistol

When they do the Bristol Stomp

(Whoa)

Really somethin when they join in jumpin

(Ah-ah-ah)

When they do the Bristol Stomp


Feel so fine

Oh, got to say, please, mine

I'm talkin (when they do the Bristol Stomp)

Mine baby (kids in Bristol...)
