Once again the club had secured a stand at the Classic Motor Show at the NEC in Birmingham for 2014.
For this show, which ran between November 14th and 16th, we had Jim Freestone’s excellent modified 1300, Andrew Punter’s two tone early Bertone 1500, James Galloway’s super very early 1500 and my Gran Finale.
As usual the cars generated a lot of interest and a lot of positive comments over the 3 days. Generally most of the conversations were with people who used to own them and they had rusted away, but loved the car, or they were wanting to sell or buy one.
It is also a good chance to meet fellow club members and be able to put a face to a name from the website of those I had not met before.
It is important that the owners club the size of ours make ourselves as visible as possible by getting involved with activities such as the Classic Car Show as it ensures that people are aware of our existence, it was certainly a good advert for the club.
I must thank Jim, Andrew and James for supplying their cars for display and also the people who spent time helping on the stand, in particular Phil and Lorraine Morris who helped over the entire weekend!
The club have applied for a stand for this year and hopefully we will hear soon if we are successful again this year. I will then be looking for cars to display.
