16th-18 November 2012

Thought it was best to get folk interested in this. Basically we need 4 cars, possibly get 5 on the space we have. smile

Whats involved??
Your car gets to seen and admired by 0000's of people that attend this show. Cool

Your car will need to be in the hall/stand from thursday evening & not allowed to move again until close on sunday evening.

I know some of you may have to travel a good distance, but i think its worth it.
For those exibiting, there's wristbands which gets you into the show before it opens, so you can spruce up the car etc, or like me take advantage of empty halls so you can take pics.thumright

So who would be up for this? Lets see names of folk interested in there cars on show.

1.
2.
3.
4.
5.

I'm 100% agreed with Mitch. Cracking show to do.

After Oschersleben, this would be my joint 2nd with Billing. It may even shade Billing, as it's dry and warm all the time laughing

It'd be good to fill the spaces for this one.

I used to stay in a Brum centre IBIS 38per night for the show duration, and jump on the train to the NEC 2.80 return(bargain).
If you can wangle the Thursday/friday off work, then THIS is the show to do.

If anyone has any questions about the show/procedure for the car, post your questions up and we'll answer them big grin

Chris

As Chris says ask away if you wish. If needs be find a hotel near to me & jump in my motor on the way in. Very Happy

Parking is free for exibitors. Cool

Would have been nice to have Gifford ready for then but it's unlikely.

Huge bump back up!! Really need some names on this list.
So far we have just one name, I had omitted to put mine on the list so folk could have a chance of taking the place up. Confused
I can man the stand over the weekend no probs, as it does need manning so there's someone to talk about the vehicles etc. smile

Will we get names on the list?
Is anyone bothered about doing this show & the chances of losing our spot? Crying or Very sad

I can probably get mine there for the weekend but won't be there myself the whole time? If that's the norm then put me down smile
