I see that the theme of this year's Classic Motor Show is "Built to Last". Perhaps the MOC stand needs a large banner reading "So what is rust then?" ;)

As I found to my cost, it is what attacks hydragas units and causes them to lose all the fluid.
It happened to me in France, fortunately for me in Normandy, which is probably the most Brit friendly part of the country

It attacks rear subframes as well, as I found out when I noticed I had an unusual amount of rear wheel camber... :o

Okay, we know what rust is, but to Midas owners it is something that means we have to replace a part on our car, rather than something that could write the car off entirely.

The 'big show' is now less than a month away and it looks like it is going to be another great show for the club. The club will be kicking off the 40th anniversary celebrations at the show and we will be doing our best to maximise the publicity for our cars.

We already have a full complement of helpers for the three days of the show, but if you want to attend then the discount codes for advance tickets were sent out in the last newsletter.

Didn't get the newsletter? Well that either means that you are not a paid up club member, or that the club does not have up to date contact information for you. Either way contact our membership secretary, John Orson, membership@midasownersclub.co.uk

Tony has made good use of our contacts at Gordon Murray Design and has arranged to borrow Gordon's Midas Alfa. This is now in full working order and Tony has seen some video of the car running around the Dunsfold circuit.

We should have more news as the show gets nearer.
