For over the last four years we have had a monthly meet at the Crooked Billet in Stanford Le Hope. This meet is now becoming the place to bring your GTO/3000GT, as it is becoming busier as each month passes.
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 get some idea’s for add some special bits to your car to put your own distinctive style to your own car.
The pub has a massive car park big enough for 100 cars and free food is available, especially welcome 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.
