Roger, you know about the Ace.  Don't they do classic car nights on 2nd Tues of each month?

Are there any plans for an Aston avalanche there?

I have only been to the Ace twice. Both times with the Lagonda & both times with my wife & son ( in tow. Nicole liked the place!  Both times for breakfast (I think it opens at 7am-but consult their website for details) First time as a preliminary for the M25 run (i got round that time) & second time for the run itself, when I got half way round & then came back after a navigational error?! and then meeting an infestation of Smart cars.
I think the Ace is great & would like to go again either weekend or on a classic car night.

Go and poke it with a stick and get it down there!!

Would be quite impressive to have 6 Astons lined up outside the cafe

Yes, probably - and I've had to cut a huge hole in the skirting board to drive it out. Roger, I have about 500m of dirt track to navigate before I reach a road, and at the beginning of December I bogged down in mud and it took me two hours to get a very dirty car back in the barn. Wimp? I can live with that!

I may be able to do this on the way home - work depending.  Any objections to a DB9 (I think the DBR2 will be a little too chilly).
