    Peak District Autumn Action, Sun 7th Oct

    Hi John. I used to live in Hemsworth and we were going to buy a house in Great Houghton so I know it well. The route I take goes from Crofton to Nostell, through Hemsworth and Great Houghton (despite all those horrible speed bumps!), turn off at RSPB Dearne Valley and then follow the smaller roads to Rotherham, past the football ground and end up hitting the M1 just by the Sheffield Parkway. I then come off at J29A (to limit motorway miles) and get to Matlock via Chesterfield. There is a fuel stop the Matlock side of Chesterfield which gives me enough for the run around the Peaks. The route from mine takes 1.5 hours ... I'll be leaving mine at 08:45 so would be in Great Houghton just gone 09:00. I'm not a fast driver and keep to a steady pace (you might find me a bit boring in that respect ) ... which is why I like the Peak District runs as they aren't all about racing to the next destination. My route back from the Travellers Rest would probably be to go via Sheffield, hit the Parkway and follow the same way back home ... although I'm open to suggestions if you want to do something different / longer / more interesting? I've got your PM and will shortly send you my number. Feel free to text/call so we can arrange a suitable time to meet up. If you want to modify the route then let me know ... I'm happy to make it more interesting and take in more of the Northern parts of the Peak District although I suspect as it's the first shake down you want to keep it simple?

    Peak District Autumn Action, Sun 7th Oct

    @4 WAK ... I'll be travelling to and from Wakefield on Sunday. Assuming it's dry I'll be travelling to Matlock in the morning and probably leaving the group after dinner so I can get back before the light levels drop. You are more than welcome to join me on any parts of this journey so you have company in case there are any issues. Normally I go the back roads via Hemsworth & Rotherham in the morning to cut out some of the boring motorway. Depending on where the group eats dinner I tend to go back via Sheffield and then Rotherham to again miss the motorway ... but all of that is flexible and I'm more than happy to try different routes.

    Boot box and roof with Frame - SOLD

    Very interested... send you a PM
  8. Roary has now been sold subject to payment and collection.
  9. @Richard Burgess Maybe this one would be of interest?
  10. Today is a sad day for me because I’m finally selling Roary :-( However it’s a fantastic day for whoever the new owner is because it’s a great Westfield which has many many miles of exciting driving left in it. Roary is a lovely and honest Westfield. I’ve hidden nothing in my description and, while I’m not a mechanic (you never know what’s around the corner), I would be confident selling to a family member or close friend. In fact I’m only selling as I now have a V8 SEiGHT and can't justify keeping both. Vehicle is in Wakefield (WF4). You are more than welcome to come for a test drive. However please only come if you are seriously looking at buying a Westfield. Photo's taken the day this advert was posted (31st Aug 2018) so you know they are an accurate representation of the vehicle. Looking for £5,995.00 ONO 1990 Westfield SEiW with only 6,970 genuine miles 12 Months MOT (Exp. August 30th 2019) with NO Advisories Full Service History with LOTS of Original Paperwork and Build Manual Well known in the Peak District & Yorkshire WSCC Groups HPI Clear (I have copies of the HPI documents) I’m the 3rd owner from new Full Wet Weather Gear, Doors and a Soft Bits Half Hood are also included in the sale 1650cc Crossflow Engine (Rebuilt 2014) Twin Dellorto 40’s Ramair Filter Piper 285 Cam Big Valve Head Oil Catch Tank Modified Distributor with Correct Curve Optima Red Top Battery New Wunoff 6” Repack Exhaust Gearbox: 4 Speed Type 3 Brakes (Front): M16 Calipers & Mintex 1144 Pads Brakes (Rear): Escort RS Drums Original Westfield Spax Dampers English Rear Diff Momo Removeable Steering Wheel (with Rapfix Racing Boss) 14” Alloys (Only 1,500 miles on the tyres which were purchased in 2016) 20mm Rear Wheel Spacers Wind Deflectors Brand New Carpet (From Westfield) ... which makes the interior look AMAZING for it’s age! Hi-Back Seats on Runners Lockable Boot Lid New Wing Mirrors, Wipers, Fuel Tank Sender Unit, Starter Solenoid & Map Pockets Good Body Work (not perfect but look at the pictures and you will see it’s been well looked after) Work required is limited unless you want to upgrade it some more. The exhaust could do with another bracket (it moves about a bit while driving and could be taken slightly further away from the body to help protect the bodywork). It has a couple of cracks in the gel coating around the wing bolts and there are the normal stone chips (mainly on the rear arches) but the body work is lovely for age (I've taken this to a number of car shows and it doesn't embarrass). The steering column needs adjustment (steering wheel isn't perfectly straight when wheels are in line). It’s a X-Flow and you need to pump the accelerator a few times before starting to get enough fuel into the carbs. It’s also been sitting for six months with only a few small blats so could probably do with a service (although it's running lovely so this would only be precautionary/routine maintenance). I’ve driven this over the past two years on many trips across Yorkshire and the Peak District. Roary has been to Silverstone and looked the business even if I am biased! Any mechanical issues I’ve had (which have been few and far between) have been fixed with the correct parts and using the experience of the ladies & gentlemen on the WSCC forum. There isn’t much more I can add other than that Roary always gets LOTS of admirers at the car shows I’ve been to, is a great car to drive and will be missed after being sold. P.S. More photos are available if required. Just PM me.

    And doesn't it look sooooo cool

    Teardrops

    Thanks for all the advice and thoughts on this subject. In regards for the motivation to have one. I don't want a motorhome as that means another vehicle to deal with (the teardrop would have been a lot easier to store and upkeep). Additionally when there are two of you in a Westfield there isn't much room for camping equipment ... even if you go for the emergency oil storage system that @Robin (Red Spider) - Yorkshire AO has fabricated I also like how cool it would look. However @Davemk1 experience and the potential insurance pitfalls cause me some concern so I might just make do with the tents.

    I like that ... do you know who's it is?

    Teardrops

    Thanks Dave ... the stress of the V8 makes sense and I'll speak with Westfield first and see what they recommend.

    Thanks for all the help on this. Looking around at a company who makes a Teardrop they have one fitted to a Trike and that's got to have a lot less weight than mine (a picture can be found on this link http://www.slindustries.co.uk/gallery#&gid=1&pid=1). They also only weigh 245kg which should be more than ample for a Westfield ... especially as mine is 725kg without driver. Mine is also a Q Plate (registered in 2001) so I wonder if the newer regs would be a hinderance? Saying that I'll speak with Westfield, the DVLA and my insurance company to see what they recommend.
