    A few pics of the club stand from the show today, plus one from the MR2 Drivers Club stand next door. What a great show, and very busy. Shame I didn't see Imran for a natter about his rebuild. I've a panorama shot as well but I can’t seem to upload due to a poor internet connection.

    After recently acquiring a Helios blue MK1, it was great to see some finished examples on this stand (and MR2DC). I was hoping to catch Imran to chat about the build but missed him on the Saturday.
    It was great to meet Stuart, and hopefully some more of you when mine is on the road next summer.

    I've tried to alter the colour of this image as it came out grey but it looked stunningly blue on the stand.

    Well, I made it down on Sunday to give Stuart some time to explore the show and have a sit down, which he'd well deserved after setting up and manning the stand for the previous 2 days. A big thank you to him; our attendance at the NEC couldn't happen without him.

    A big thank you also to Malcolm and Imran for showing their cars, and helping out on the stand when they could.

    It'll be good to try and get a few more members involved next year. It only takes a couple of people per day to be on the stand, so that we can rotate around and go exploring the show to share the work load. It's easy work as well, as you're talking about MR2s, and maybe even your car if you show it!

    Here are my photos:





























    We managed to get 2 new members signed up at the show, with several other membership forms and club business cards handed out.

    Thank you also to the members that purchased tickets and returned the stubs to the club stand, as we'll get a little bit (£1!) back for each of these from the NEC.

    We're also looking at investing in some exhibition display stands, as this would mean that we don't need to hire a van for the show to carry the current display boards. This will both save cost on the van, but will mean that we can get straight off from the show in our cars, rather than having to wait for the van to be let into the show. Stuart and I didn't get home until 9pm because of this. We could also use exhibition stands at other shows around the country if any LAO's or event organisers wanted to.

    Thanks again.

    Cheers,
    Tom

    Well done to all involved!

    A mate from work went to the show and said it was great, and I know a few people from the Retro Rides forum had cars on display there.
    I might have to try and visit next year although I don't think you'd want my car on the stand! Wish it was closer to where I lived.

    There's no rust on my car. But there are some sizable holes where the rust fell out.
