Hi All,
In a bit of a coup, the Unipower GT Register are going to have the recently rediscovered and restored prototype car, the first ever production car and the original works race car all together for the first time ever on our stand at the Classic Car Show at the NEC 8-10 Nov.

We'll be in Hall 3, Stand 464. Please come and say hi if you're visiting.

(BTW, I'm still looking for 1x 4 1/2" Mark 1 Cosmic Rim. Please let me know if you have one for sale or know where I might get one. Thanks.)

I'll drop in a say hello on Sunday Tim.

Have you got a large scale plan of the show ?

I though the prototype had an alloy body by W&P from which the moulds were taken? That one's GRP, isn't it? the one from the cow shed.

The ali one was only used to form the moulds and destroyed by all accounts.

Had an enjoyable day yesterday, found another race programme with my Unipower in it (Silverstone in ‘68) which was a surprise find and a few interesting Mini race photos in the auto jumble. Show wise it was bigger than ever but did seem to lack interesting Minis this year, though there were Minis scattered everywhere (one with its sound system blasting out across the hall!) A fun day though.
