First of all a massive THANK YOU to everyone that came today. 5 mk1's on the stand!

Fair play to Mattthechip who came all the way from Ipswich with a round trip time of over 7 hours!!!! Hat off to you mate.

It was a very impressive turnout overall considering the damp weather we had today.

It was nice seeing some of the usual faces and meeting some new ones.

I must apologise for my lack of involvement but keeping a 3 year old entertained is no easy feat especially one thats been up since 5am.

The welsh massive: Always a pleasure boys, lloyds estate is looking sweeeeeeeet.

s40deg: cars in top shape matey. Loving the rims.

Jem: first time meet but loving the car and the colour. Will be sorted once trims are back and on. Nice meeting you both (if only shortly)

Mattthechip: again, cars looking spot on. Engine is spotless, and I really cant see why your bothered about the paint. Looked ok to me and like you say, its nearly a 30 year old car.

To those that didnt make it, there is always next year!!

few pics to follow

Only got pics of our bunch Mitch. Yeah was a shame you never made it. Was a massive one again this year as others will tell you when they get on.

EDIT. Just read this post and laughed my head off as it said was a massive one then the first pic is of mansolo on his lonesome in a field.
as you can probably tell we were on the very outer of the show area.


















Doesn't look like I got a pic of Jems engine so if anyone could pop one up please

Just got home after a three hour drive. Had a great day, sorry if anyone got offended by my choice of topics laughing
Nelly performed like a dream all the way there and back, not bad for a 1300 with three lads and boot full of supplies!
Mitch - Not surprised didn't recognise the estate with this being it's first show.
Matt - congratulations on your first successful outing in your car and stop bitching about the paint job, nowt wrong with it!
Jem - Yellow is sweeeeet, stop doubting it. It is a Jem!
Andy - Didn't catch your lads name but nice to meet him, I didn't realise you got kids that weren't annoying! BIG thanks for my present I'm soooo chuffed with it big grin



Small things amuse small minds!

Scotti - sorry you couldn't make it, tried to bell you but only got your old no. coz I deleted the new one whoops.
Jon - Biggest thanks for all your hard work with the signs, write up, etc, etc. Car looks great and my wife and I are chuffed with what you done with our old car. I guess we were just looking after Sharona until you came along. have a pic x



I must have been the only person who took more pictures of a dog than of cars at the show but I rely on Dyl for the car pics.



Chuffed is obviously the word of the day, never laughed so much in my life. Next step is to get us all CAMPING at Billing so we can get pissed and dress up as nurses (Doctor's for Jem and Jess) or midgets!

Tomorrow I'm back in the garage to crack on with the Minx, need it finished so I can put my new badge on big grin
