Superb. This one passed my by, I have to admit - and mine isn't anywhere near good enough (yet) for the indoor shows. And we got a bubble on the stand, yeh! :clapping

First close-scrutiny for the cabby too, I imagine.

220 GSi turbo wrote:WE'RE IN!!!

Stand number 356, which is a 10.5 x 7 metre area adjoining the Metro Owners' Club and near several other BL/Rover clubs :)

So far, I have offers of cars from Dist's fleet (I think the red Cabriolet is a must!), a silver Coupe and a blue 25. Would anybody else like to offer their car for display? We ought to display a 400 "HH/R" or 45 at one of the indoor shows this year, but that could be saved for the NEC if we have nobody in the North West with one.
Setup is Friday 16th September, show is live Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th, with breakdown Sunday evening. As with the NEC show, cars need to be left in the halls overnight: once it's in there, it doesn't come out until Sunday evening :wink3

For those who want to visit, tickets are likely to be much cheaper than the NEC, the show is an excellent indoor show and if family members want to go along but don't want to spend all day looking at cars, the Trafford Centre is a 5 minute walk away :)



I would be more than happy to bring my 45 V6 Connoisseur to any future events.

Merry Christmas.
