Isolated !

Hello everybody from sunny Dorset. but far off from help when it comes to local enthusiasts. I live near Christchurch which would seem to be a place where car enthusiasts might be found BUT. There are many car enthusiasts around but finding someone practical who can help is a different matter, I belong to both P6 clubs but membership is thin around here and most members I know are not the "get ones hands dirty types"!
With advancing years and limited space to work any repairs can be difficult, no doubt I am not alone?
So enough of the tears and lets be practical, a P6 is a heavy beast and difficult to get under and a hoist is really needed, not easy to find locally. Its a pity there is not a classic car enthusiast group (all clubs) where one can rent garage space for repair work, they do exist but not everywhere. Is there anyone in the Bournemouth/Christchurch and Poole area with such facilities?

Thanks for that, Tanner at Bournemouth seems to be finding it difficult as well. looking through the threads there are many pitfalls as well. The group has to be well organised and trustworthy, best if they all have the same type of vehicle (eg classic Rover).
Property is like gold dust around here and Covid has made it that much worse, but will keep looking.

We used to have a few Dorset members, Stina from Bournemouth, Jules from Ringwood (ok not actually Dorset but close), Me but I moved, and I'm sure many more.

Wonder where they all went ?

I am a member of the P6ROC and P6 owners club and know several P6 owners. Do you mean Julian (Jules) if so he is still in Ringwood and very much active! Where did you move to?
It should be easier to find a spacious garage in Ringwood, but that a little far out for me.

I thought I had replied to this message , anyway I will repeat.
Yes there are a few P6s about and I belong to the P6ROC and we do have a casual local group, who meet in a pup near Southampton (Covid excepted). but little tech talk. Jules is probably Julian and he is still very much around but Stina seems to have disappeared.
