What about next year Mark, a little stick-on or pin-on badge with a Mk1 performance logo for our T shirt. Those going send a SAE to you and a badge with your forum 'tag' comes back by return.



Funnily enough, Jennifer has just bought herself a badge making machine! I'm sure once she has sorted out the editing software I can have a crack at knocking something up.

It was great to meet all the members on here that I spoke to, I apologise for ranting on a bit hope I didn't bore anybody,
it was great to put some faces to people, one in particular MAB Martin, whom was the first person to shed a light on the
Contessa, had an interesting chat with Peter Laidler, Timell , Surfblue to name but a few, thanks to all for showing an
interest, as for spilling any beans Mark, not involved with any of the politics or whatever, :o :lol: :lol:

I would also like to thank Steve Burkinshaw for mentioning in his roundup of the Coachbuilt display
A RARE Oyler Contessa,

I wasn't referring to "politics or whatever". I was just asking what happened at the show, what was worth seeing, who was there etc.

The politics were off to the left of Count Von Hubbard's second photo! :lol:

I didn't make it down but great idea of Nev's to do such a big gathering of coachbuilt cars. There would have been even more had it not been for the politics ironically :roll:

Any more pics?

Found this one of Simon's rally car..

Good show I thought, Auto Jumble was thin on the ground, and what was there people didn't seem to be buying?

Swifty - Your MPi still looks great,

Peter - Good to meet you, and chat about ex cop cars

Aaron (Commando) - Car looks great, and thanks for the tip on the timing, before we went in.
