Monthly Essex Meet

For over the last two years we have had a monthly meet at the Crooked Billet in Stanford Le Hope.

Attracting around 20-30 cars each month it is the longest running regular and best monthly meet for GTO/3000GT owners in the UK. A very friendly atmosphere will be found by all owners and new members are warmly welcomed into the fold.

A varied range of modified cars turn up each month giving GTO/3000GT owners something to look at, to perhaps add some special bits to their cars to put their own distinctive style to their own car.

The pub has a massive lit car park big enough for 100 cars and food will become available when the nights drawn in and become cold enough to make attendees stay in the warmth of the side bar we use as our own.

The remainder of this years dates are listed below and we all hope to see some new faces along with the old to the meet soon.
