i know it probably feels like people are ganging up on you but opinions are just being expressed. you get very defensive very quickly. no one including nigel expects you to put the club before family. what you have put above is not on mate. to me that implies you will be turning up mob handed to a family event. if you dont think you can keep your cool maybe you should think about giving BL a miss. hope to see you there though as im guessing it will probably your last mg/rover show.

So what are the dates for the NEC ?
Is the stand sorted with cars etc. I assume it's the same size as last year.
I should be able to help out but will need to book time of work, but that shouldn't be a problem.
I don't understand why all the negativity and insults. If help is needed, just ask. We didn't go short of help last year, so why should it be any different this year.

I know of a really nice 420 GSi Tourer (it used to belong to me) but unfortunately I don't have an address or phone number for the owner!

His name is Brian, he lives in Alrewas (near Lichfield/Tamworth) and I believe he is a club member: he took the car to the Coventry museum meet last year. It is Nightfire, and reg no M650 XEX.

Maybe somebody with access to the membership records could get in touch with him?

A friend of mine (non-member) has also offered his Nightfire 214 SEi 5-door if we really need it. It has a few areas of blistered lacquer but is otherwise very good...

Another thought: who owns the silver cabriolet that came to Cars in the Park?

Spent ages chatting to him, but didn't get his name. He comes from Leicester. It would look great on display at the NEC!

Any chance of an update on what's happening with the NEC, peeps?

and a polite reminder that the deadline for getting the paperwork to them (post or online) is Friday this week, if it hasn't been done yet.
Having just done it all for another club tonight, I am happy to help if needed :)
