We will be in hall 2, for those who like watching Classic car auctions (me) we are right next to Silverstone Auctions.
And in great company next to the Lancia Motor Club , Fiat and Alfa clubs

Hi Peter
They moved us to hall 2 last year, which worked very well, it's going to be very busy especially being right next to the auction.
So thanks for offering to help, if anyone else can spare a day or 2 to help on the stand please let us know.

A few of us are staying up the road at the Best Western Plus Manor Hotel.
Looking at the prices since I booked they have gone up from 317 to 527 for a twin room  :-[

More than happy to help - Happy to fit in on the days that are needed - might need to shop around for the hotel a bit though!

Excellent shaping up to be a good show, there has been a slight change to our position, still in hall 2, same spot as we had last year, and away from the auction so should have a bit more space.
Below is a new hall 2 floor plan, and if you would like to view this years show guide it can be viewed here:https://viewer.joomag.com/lancaster-insurance-classic-motor-show-nec-2023/0054613001698786446?short& (https://viewer.joomag.com/lancaster-insurance-classic-motor-show-nec-2023/0054613001698786446?short&)

We look forward to seeing you there.

Hi

I was on the stand on Friday, pretty busy up until mid afternoon. Just a quick thanks to John, Tony et al for organising and getting the stand setup etc.

Good selection of cars which generated a wide range of comments and enquiries.

An absolutely amazing weekend - I was there for all 4 days and enjoyed every minute of it. We got many nice compliments about our display too including one from our neighbours on the Lanchester / Daimler stand next door and the son of the founder of Broadspeed the Jaguar tuner from way back - apparently his parents were Beta owners too back in the day!

Sorry for the delay in posting  :-[

Another very successful NEC show  :)
Special thanks to Richard (HPE) Dan & Darcie (Spider) Andy and Mark W for taking it (S3 Saloon) and Kevin (Alitalia Coupe)
For showing your amazing cars, also to everyone that helped out on the stand over the 4 days.

Also to everyone who came over and said hello, was good to put more faces to names  :)
Last but not least, thanks to Caroline (Mark Smiths Wife) for the cakes, which she unfortunately drove over, long story :) but they tasted great  ;D 

As always I took a few pics, here's a small selection.
More of the Italian clubs can be seen on my Flickr page: https://www.flickr.com/photos/tonysphotos/albums/72177720312700946 (https://www.flickr.com/photos/tonysphotos/albums/72177720312700946)

Thanks Tony.   

I need to clarify that it was me who put my rucksack where it would be driven over without telling Caroline!

Great pics as ever.

It's great to see a couple of cars with similar number plates together, I wonder if the sequence from 110 to 150 was all Beta and if any others survive?

Hi Guy

They both still have Chequered Flag stickers in the rear window, so from same Lancia dealer.

It shows how 2 cars from the same few months of registration
can have very different outcomes 40 years later. Saying that, I don't know
if the HPE has been restored at all.

In my, albeit limited, knowledge of reg allocations, 'blocks' of numbers were
issued to various dealers in an area. So it would be unsurprising to find
a CLT on another make locally. Blocks of 20 were common in my days in Kent.

I remember, back in Johannesburg in the mid 80's, seeing 2 Datsun Pulsars
parked on the same street with consecutive plates, both being some 10 years old! One of them
was ours.

I checked out the registration sequence around my Beta Coupe and there were about 40 (if my memory is right) registered with the odd Alfa thrown in. Of those there is another Coupe and a Monte Carlo still extant and taxed.

At 10 years old I owned an HPE (that I'd had for 4 years by then) when I bought a donor Coupe for the Stratos replica with the next number plate to the HPE....
