It looks like you all had a good show?

Two years ago I went on my own; there wasn't a great deal of amateur club activity going on that I found. There were a lot of club stands displaying a car with one wheel off and the bonnet up and that was about it. :sad

There was still a lot to see and lots of professional displays/ workshops to keep the punter happy.

There were two notable exceptions a Rover P6 having a gearbox out/ clutch change and a non mainstream sportscar club busy doing some sort of suspension change. They were that busy underneath, that there was no one to discuss the project with. So some display boards and photographs of the operation being conducted would perhaps be no bad thing.
