Event City, Manchester: 21/22 September 2013

Postby 220 GSi turbo » Fri Jun 07, 2013 11:10 pm

I have been advised that the former organisers of the NEC show have booked Event City in Manchester for a classic car show on 21/22 September this year.

I will try to get us a club display :)

Different organisers this time, with an emphasis on 'classic' rather than 'performance'.

A stand has been applied for, and I believe 'LedburyMatt' has already offered his Nightfire 214 SEi as one of the exhibits.

Ideally, one hatch, one saloon, one Tourer, one Coupe and one cabby would be good, but let's see how much space they offer us first :)

Sounds like my unit bar the tourer (does a 75 count :laughing )

hatch = 220 gti
saloon = 420 gsi turbo
Coupe = turbo or vvc
cabby = 218 turbo

Yes, we have a stand confirmed.

Matt's Nightfire 214 SEi will definitely be there, he has asked me to take my Tahiti 3-door turbo, and that should still leave room for one or two more.

Something white perhaps? (thinking red, white and blue here)

Right, we will probably have a Tahiti blue Tourer on display as well now.

Hope to squeeze one more on: so, yes please to the white Coupe :)

If not, then any other Coupe, Cabriolet or 4-door saloon, preferably white or silver.

Latest:

One blue Tourer (subject to confirmation by Rob)

One red 214 SEi 5-door

One turquoise cabbie

My blue 3-door turbo, or my friend's white 220 GSi


Any progress on 'Big White'?
