So, after a record breaking 5 hours sleep it was up early to hit the open road to rendezvous at Clacket Lane to head east for some fun in the sun at the Hipsville Auto Show. ..and was that really Stuart ‘Psycho’ Pearce in Costa...??!!

Back on the road and about 10 minutes before the second stop I’m informed that there’s smoke coming out of the back of the Buick! A quick stop at the side of the road to check things ensues, and a slow journey to the services is the sensible option!!

There’s no feeling on earth like the one when you press the brake pedal and your foot goes to the floor is there!!! Verrry slowly I carry on to the forecourt, and after a few laps of the pumps the ‘ol ‘54 comes to a halt, and quick as a flash John Rutledge had got the Buick in the air and we gather round for the verdict....
It would appear that the offside self adjuster had adjusted itself and heated the drum quite nicely and it looks like a few bob will be spent in the coming week to get it sorted...!!

In other news, a beautiful day in Margate, a couple of beers, a very nice pizza in fine company, loads of people you know there and a trip back on a flatbed.

What more do you need on a day out, here’s some pics....
