We will definitely be going, as long as they allocate us a stand :)

You will need to spray your Coupe silver, as it is the 'Silver Jubilee' of the Coupe :wink3

But we do have a silver coupe that lives very close to the show. Unfortunately it was on the stand last year and it is always good to have different cars each year if they are available.

Bump for this as we need to get a plan ready.

Are we just having coupes or 1 of each like normal?
I can bring 2 red and a black on my own :D

No harm in getting a plan together, although we don't know for sure if we have got a stand there yet.

Does anybody know if the Coupe Club have applied?

We will definitely go for a mix of cars again and should probably consider having an HHR on display, as we haven't had one at Event City before. A Tourer might be good, too :)

I doubt it, doesn't appear to be a captain at the helm of that ship ATM.

Well, it goes without saying that your Coupe would be most welcome, Craig.

And if the RCOC aren't going to be there, I would definitely consider having Nick's silver Coupe once more.

We have a stand in Hall 3 :D

10m x 9m and we share a boundary with the ADO16.info organisation. (a recently-formed enthusiast group for the Austin/Morris etc 1100/1300)
It will be a great opportunity to compare the British motor industry's finest hour of the 1960s with that of the 1990s :cool

Nearby we have the Capri Club and one of the Rover P6 clubs.

I am therefore guessing that a maximum of four cars would fill the stand comfortably and leave room to walk around. So, volunteers please! (with or without cars) Ideally, it would be good to have cars that have not been there before.
