I shall be at this show with Hyacinth the high mileage 1987 Rover 216S (E586 YAU). I am new to shows, so don't really know what to expect and have no idea how these things go, so feel free to say hello and please point me in the right direction if you see me driving round in circles!
Look forward to seeing the car! (And meeting you of course!)

We achieved a total of 6 on the club stand at one point (after conscripting a 220 GTi owner who was parked with the general classics :wink3 ) and also a couple of other members dropped by to say hello although they had not brought their cars with them. It was good to see you all! I am sure somebody will post some photos soon.........I don't have the technology to do it :laughing2

We were just behind the 1100 Club stand, so it was a great display of some of Longbridge's finest: 25 years apart :)

I had a good time unfortunately couldn't stay to long due to family commitments :glare but as I don't get too many meets was good to put some faces to names. Shame that owner of the 220 didn't want to sell though :laughing2

Sorry my visit was only a brief one-I had to get back due to work this afternoon/evening. Hope to see everyone again/meet more people at Gaydon in a couple of weeks!

Car of the show for me was the gorgeous 28k mile Citroen AX GT-good job I didn’t have a pen & paper on me as I’d have left a note on it asking to buy it!
