Came round quick. Last year saw some discussions over the NEC.

I know a load of folk from the south coast are going but I think that might be on Sat.

 I am off to look at how to build and fill your house up with 'good ideas' at Shepton Pallet, just missing the car show there by a week. Most are probably not really that clever or too expensive! So that will be in common with some of the Classics on display at the NEC, snigger, snigger.

The NMRC should be able to begin the build up to next years National having had the meeting, so that will be good.

Morning Dickie

At the show Friday Morning. The Microcar stand is excellent and Jenny and Ray have done an excellent job. They have managed to get the Laydybird on show  ( a definite highlight for me) along with a Frisky sport, Bond Mk A, SCootacar Mk 1, a Trident, a Mopetta and a KR 200. The stand is in a good position as everybody walks past it on the way to the toilets on the first lap round the outside. Some interesting vehicles on the other stands.
There was a lot of interest in all the vehicles, so all in all a good show.

Would that be like a Buffalo girl? Actually I rather hope not as Buffaloes tend to be a bit free with their, err, excess baggage.

Bon chance at the show!

Dear Dickie
As you enter hall 6 you go through the american Muscle car section. Past the Milk Cow magazine stand on the first corner, Then past the Russian and East European cars before hitting the Microcars.

So Al is a little adrift with his buffalo girls, more like country and eastern girls as you go round the outside!!!
