General Discussion / Pilgrim Bulldog mk2 back on the road after 24 years!
« Last post by jarmezuk on September 02, 2019, 02:10:11 PM »
Hi All,

After many hours of painstaking work my Marina based Bulldog Mk2 is finally back on the road! The car was initially built by a Mr Vic Searson and was on the road May 1987 - I bought it Feb 1991 and replaced alot of it over the 4 years I drove it for (Goldseal 1275cc A series engine, new clutch for starters, refub'd the SU carb). The car was then mothballed until 2017 and after alot of part time tinkering, new starter motor, disc brakes, pistons for drums, refub'd fuel tank, refub'd SU fuel pump, refurb'd Brake Master Cylinder (Mk2 type with servo = rarer than rocking horse droppings!), new cutch master cylinder, new exhaust & various electrical fixes - she's back! Passed her MOT Friday just gone!

Huge thanks to a certain Mr Streatfield for plenty of advice - thanks Ian really appreciated.

Hope you all like the photos......

Is anyone planning on going to the kit fest at Santa pod ? Is the club booking a pitch?

Sorry to hear that, the money covers insurance when you are on the club stands. Small discount on the Christmas doo north and south

Here are the minutes for the 2018 Pilgrim Car Club AGM - they are in audio format and in 2 parts due to the limit on the size of attachments. AND they are .zip files as MP4a aren't allowed.
Blimey this has taken so long to upload I might just as well have transcribed it all.
The second half is in a separate post......

Hi Deejay,

1: Your £1 a month should get you a discount on many KitCar insurance policies... way more than the £12 annual standing order. They like it when people are in actual clubs because...

2: Members are also insured on site at Pilgrim events... which basically means in the paddock at the National Kitcar Show in May.

3: We also have a Christmas bash each year, which is generally paid for or subsidized. Nothing grand, but turkey in a pub for those that can make it.

The Biannual magazine actually got rather waylaid and turned into an email version in 2017, but it has had some issues over the year, which I am sure will be discussed at the AGM.

We are basically a very small club, cobbled together by volunteers. Just stop the standing order if it's not for you. At some point, we'll run out of funds and interest and we'll all go home... Either that or there will be renewed activity from the members, and I can hang up my treasurer's hat!
