The Alfa Romeo Owners Club (AROCA) is a vibrant club which supports owners and enthusiasts with a range of social and competition activities to suit all tastes.
The Healey Factory Tour will take place on a Wednesday night. This is one week after the February Club Meeting. The Healey Factory has a reputation for very high quality restoration work and has a great team of craftsmen. This is a great opportunity to see their work and get an understanding what is involved in large resto projects.
Rob Rowland, the Manager has advised that there will be 4 employees to take 4 different groups around the various workshops at the ‘factory’. This way the groups are not large and we don’t fall over each other. There are 2 Pizza places up the road, so we could organise a delivery on a needs basis. [Read more…]
