NEC Other stuff, Picture heavy

Here's a selection of some of the photos I took of the rest of the show over the week-end.
I didn't get to see everything, there was so much.

Next is a Triumph Spitfire, this has been featured in recent magazines, it was stored away
after only a few miles (162 on the clock) and covered in wax. Looks like it just needs a
good clean.

I missed the 2nd article about Alex's car, I remember the pic being taken at the time and thought he had been omitted. :oops:
Must admit I only had a quick scan of the paper, saving it until I had sorted these pics.

So... nice one ! 8)
Good for you Alex. :D

Bugger - I meant to scan the article this weekend but ran out of time and am away all week. I'll do it at the weekend if no one else does it beforehand!

There is a mugshot of yours truly and E-R17 and a bit of a write up about my car. Most importantly we got a mention about the club stand. Both articles are on the same page...

*gets massively self-concious* :oops:

Joking aside, I never thought that the NEC would culminate in this much coverage for the club. I'm really thrilled, and thanks must go to Sam Skelton and Classic Car Weekly for the write up!
