If you would all like to post on here if you will be going, I will ask the organisers if we could have a club stand.

So, names down by the end of this week if possible, please!

I will be there, Paul, but not in a Rover: one of our older 'residents' is having a run out on that weekend (doing the Festival of the Unexceptional too).

I haven't spoken to the organisers about a club stand, due to the lack of interest shown here on the forum. Is anybody on FB intending to go?

It looks like anywhere between 35 and 65 are saying they’re going, with a further 300+ “interested”. Let’s hope the weather holds up!

Well, the weather must have put a lot of people off!

A lot of Austin Cambridges (and their Morris, MG, Riley and Wolseley 'brothers') were there, but probably only 30 other cars: a mixture of ancient and modern.

Two R8s (Nightfire 214 and gold 216) plus a rather nice Nightfire 620 SLi with an asking price of £1300 and a very nice 820 Vitesse in a dark metallic red (Bolero?).

The rain stopped by midday and the sun finally came out at around 2.30 :cool

I unfortunately had to pull out at the last minute as my Mum was in A&E all day Saturday and I had to run her about to hospital and back again today :sad

How was the show?
