Probably not but there is a big autojumble and we'll be able to give you contact details of a fella who can do that.

Just got back home, what a great show.

Sorry me and my good lady didn't say much but due to the hot weather we were not feeling our best.

Photos of the day below - anyone who wants the full res. versions, let me know - I have a few more photos of other people's cars too.

I'm fried to a crisp, but I don't get enough sun anyway. At least all the vitamin D my skin produced will keep the rickets away :laughing2

Fantastic weather, the auto-jumble yielded a few R8 bargains for Graham. I gave everything a good going over and came away with a few R8 publications that I hadn't seen before...

Big-up for Nick in the lovely silver coupe, a new member. Got chatting and couldn't stop... :)

Car presentation I have to say was top notch. Mine was the roughest looking one there. Really showroom-like condition everywhere you looked:

Panorama - I think I got them all in! I count 20 in total. I was the 8th car in at about 9:45am...

Image

Bottom end of the field with Jeremy and No. 1 in pole position again, but then he did get there *early*

Image

Top end of the field:

Image

Couple of early phase 1 GSi's at the top end of the field:

Image

The other side of the top end of the field - a 416SLi in white, the ultra-low-mileage 416GTi in Antlantic that we've seen on the forum... our honorary Concerto...

Image

Paul's immaculate 416GSi:

Image

And now I know what the commemorative brass plaque looks like. How do I mount it on the car :S

It was a great turn out today, with a total of 21 cars in the end. Some of you had travelled a long distance to be there. It was the first showing of the new flags and the wind certainly tested their strength! It good to meet some new members and sign up a few more as well.

Hi I got back home at 8.30 I'm pleased to say the sei didn't miss a beat having done over 330 miles . I'm also sure I've talked my mate who had the 420gsi into joining the club as he was very impressed with our club stand. I've set myself a challenge to see
how many genuine rover accessories I get for my Sei. I think we had a amazing variation of different models. Let's hope we can carry on growing as a club. :clapping

Had a great day today. Good to catch up with everyone. I have driven 354 miles and got 43.7mpg from my Cabriolet and that includes some roof down driving which destroys mpg.

Well Graeme, you have your headlight protectors and boot net now ;-)

I'd be interested in seeing a full R8 accessories list!

I've already got the brochure .... My car already has a set of headlamp covers fitted. So I now have a spare set in case I buy another car.

Glad everybody had a great day out!

Our cars are a credit to their owners and are starting to get the credit they deserve.

The autojumble supplied a surprising amount of parts, literature and sales material.

Good to see that the flags survived the almost-gale-force-test. It's a lot less windy indoors at the NEC...
