2nd Oct 2016 AACNW Krispy Kreme Meet

The American Auto Club North West have a meet at Krispy Kreme Restaurant at the Trafford Centre the first Sunday of every month.

There are all sorts of fantastic vehicles that attend. On top of that you can get fresh Coffee and Donuts so whats not to like.

The meet starts around 10:30am,  usually a good turnout,especially if weather is good, with lots of cars, and there is an  AACNW member tent selling club items.

The range of vehicles is amazing, Hot Rods, Low Riders, Muscle Cars and Trucks, a great way to spend a couple of hours on a Sunday morning.

After the success of the Coast to Coast Tour this year we have decided that it was so much fun that we would try and arrange another for 2017. If fact we enjoyed it so much we thought with help we could probably arrange four.

Quarter One


In April one tour that both Karl Edmondson and John Eccles have done is the MK Classic Tour. Its a half day Sunday Tour starting in Milton Keynes that takes in the Millbrook Circuit and the Porsche Driving Experience at Silverstone. One sugestion is that we travel down on Saturday (Call in at Gaydon Motor Museum, then stay overnight in Stratford upon Avon or Towcester and have a meal and get together. The morning after cruise to the start of the Tour, meet at the Porsche experience for a spot of lunch then make our way home.

Quarter Two



Booked through Scenic Tours this is a long weekend in Northern France taking part in the largest Classic Car event in Europe. Based around Laon appox 145 miles from Calais it is an experience not to be missed. All the details on price and itinerary can be found at http://www.sceniccartours.com/laon-historique-itinerary-17/4592227669

They are fantastic people to deal with and have agents in the town should you have any issues. Can I suggest if interested please book early to secure a decent hotel. A £100 deposit secures your booking.

Quarter Three and Four

So this is were you guys come in, we would like two more roadtrips to complete the year. We have great roads here in the UK so we should try and take advantage of them. We already have had people suggest athe Lake District, Northumberland or even the Scottish Borders. If you think you have an idea please let us know and we can try and organise everything obviously with some help from the rest of you.

So please send us your Ideas and lets hit the road with the radio blaring loud! (well not to loud otherwise you couldn’t hear the roar of the engine).

My Crossfire Year

This year we have been quite busy with work and family commitments but we still managed to get to a car show or a road trip at least once a month. This is my year in pictures.
