Yesterday, Steve "Mellie" Corbett finally married Lynn at Tonbridge/Kent,
the day appeared to go well without problems, all the best to Steve & Lynn,

for those with bad memories, Steve was one of the Croydon lot that put together a bunch of pro-street cars back in 80s-90s,

Steve still has that same blue mk2 Zephyr,
tubbed with centerlines, stock interior, blown SBC with only the BDS scoop through the bonnet, cover car on CC in around 1991?
damned if i can find a pic right now:tdown:

heres a few pics from yesterday...



Alan Lampard drove Steve in the MK1 ,


Gary Gwilliam took Lynn the bride to be in the Caddy
while i had the matching gold ribbon and got to take the bridesmades in the Nova:tup:


the newlyweds,






Steve decides against a wedding ring and went for a tattood version instead,


some glamour on the day:tup:


would you invite this bunch to your wedding?


Alan Lampard tries his best to embarrass Steve with his best man speech,


Barry Dacey & Pat 'the rat' Healy try to work out who stole their beer?


while Gary Gwilliam denies the beer theft,


ex CC editor Tim Baggeley does his shaun of the dead attack impression on me,


it was all downhill from here on!

You must have more photos of Redburn Gary, I find it very hard to believe he only got his tits & belly out, after all, it was a special occassion!

I would never have recognised Barry Dacey or Tim come to that.

Dacey's wedding,now that was an excellent night!

Steve sort of adopted the thunder pants thing,
even had the johnny fart pants artwork on his zephyr by Neil Melliard.

even the adult section of Rods n sods will never be ready for some of the Redburn photos that are out there:shake:

Gary,i often quote my favorite Redburn "line"of all time from Dacey's wedding when the hotel management noticed that things were starting to get out of hand,and Mr night manager struts into the bar and announces at the top of his voice "Ladies and Gentlemen the bar will be closing at 1am !!,,,,,,,,,,Redburn who at this point is pretty much unconcious hears this anouncment and within micro seconds is up and stood at the bar and the imortal retort -NO PROBLEM ! -23 PINTS OF LAGER MY GOOD MAN !-world fukin class,Bry

I think Steve's Zephyr was back halved by Reg,
the guy in the loud shirt is disco Dave, married to Sue Saunders,
the guy on his right is Ian, owns the white falcon pick-up in the 1st pic,
when you say Malc, do'ya mean Malcolm the guy that had the pro-street pop that Reg put the chassis in?, if its that Malcolm, he turned up yesterday,
didn't recognise him at first, but then it has been probably 15+ years? since i last saw him.

Garry is still one of our gang, he was at the Nats with us last week and he is still a star. Barry was a regular but since his marriage (a top wedding) he has been a rare luxury. He still calls drunk late at night, a trick he learned from Tel.

Congratulations to the Bride and Groom.

We was talking about that last night,
how we all saw Larry and the stool going over,
but none of us trying to save him.

Thanks Brian, you're right it was a night to remember - most people took 3 or 4 days to get over it - heavy, heavy Sh*t.

Steve and Lynns do on Saturday was great also. I'm almost recovered - Eileens not though - poor thing.
