Hello all
The application is in for the 2013 NEC Car Show. Each year the show seems to get bigger and attendance numbers go up; the show is an ideal opportunity to showcase the Beta to a wider classic car fan base who don't go to the usual Italian car events.

I've applied for a 5 car stand again, and I'd really like to hear from anyone with a Sedan, Coupe, Spider or HPE that could feature at the show. Your car could be original, modified or restoration project. Each year I always like to feature a fresh line up of cars, but any cars last shown in 2010 or earlier are welcome back.

Without exception anyone who has shown their car at previous shows has always really enjoyed the experience of getting involved. So don't be modest and get in touch.

I look forward to hearing from you. See you in 2013!

Best wishes
John

Hi John

Not sure if I really want to tempt fate, but put me down for the Spyder slot if you want, aiming to have it ready for the mid year bash, so assuming that should be ok for November!

Peter

Cheers

I can offer the Chocolate Lime for the stand if people are interested.

If the coupe slot is filled- there is always next year.

Title: Wanted! Beta Spider for NEC Classic Car Show November 15th, 16th, 17th
Post by: johnb on September 28, 2013, 09:24:58 AM
Dear Beta people
Not long till the Classic Car Show now! I'm really pleased that we've got 3 fantastic and quite unique cars lined up that have never been featured before and are not well known even in Lancia circles...

So far we have confirmed a 1st Series Coupe, a very early 2nd Series HPE and a 2nd Series Sedan. I'm really grateful to the owners and they are going to do us proud.

Now we need a Spider. So if you've got a Spider and you can get to the NEC for the Thursday 14th November (show runs from the 15th till the 17th), please contact me on here or on bowjm@hotmail.com or on my mobile 07712 787703.

The Show is always a great way to highlight the Beta to a whole new wave of classic car enthusiasts who don't go to any of the Italian car events, and its a great way to show the classic motoring world just what a fantastic model line up the Beta was/is.

So don't be shy. I'm interested in any Spider modified or original, shown at the NEC before or not.

Cheers all
John

I will be with the dodgy lot next door on the Montecarlo Consortium Stand so should be able to stagger next door after the normal quiet nights out!

Cheers

Just a note to say thanks to all who have done the collective stand work- it all looked great on Friday.

Nice to put some more faces to names too. A real welcoming experience.

And the maroon coupe- fantastic - loved the velvet seat bolsters.

In reality red but quite a vibrant orangey red, it looks a whole lot better in the metal than in these pictures too!

The sodium lighting played havoc with the colour rendition.
Many thanks to all on the stand for making Alan and I so welcome, we had a great weekend and learnt a lot.  Very easy trip home the car behaved faultlessly.

Cant believe this was our 9th year at the NEC?? where has that time gone?
It was good having having the 3 Lancia clubs together again, with the Lancia Motor Club and Montecarlo Consortium.

The photo wall received a lot attention, with people looking for their old Betas or admiring cars from around the world ;D
We would like to thank everyone who came over or helped out on the stand.

Massive thanks to Alan, Nigel, Simon and Theo for bringing their cars, we appreciate driving your pride and joy to the NEC, in the middle of November is probably the last thing you would normally do. Thank You!

Also Thanks to John Bower, without him our display would not happen.

I've uploaded a few photos from the 3 Lancia Stands

Simon bought along the HPE, a sad story but a fitting tribute to Mike Wildau and his car.

On a happier note, what happens when the show closes ? the Montecarlo Consortium letting their hair down  :D
