Hello everyone
Not long now before the NEC Classic Car show which as always is a great opportunity for us to show off the Beta range to a wider motoring public, especially as it's the 40th anniversary year. Just in case anyone hadn't noticed...

I'm finalising the cars for this year's stand. We have room for 4 if not 5 cars. As always I look for cars that we haven't featured before to keep the line up fresh. So far I have an early yellow Beta Sedan, a silver HPE 2000ie and a black Volumex Coupe with Stratton bodykit. I'm hoping to finalise a Spider and another Coupe at the moment, so if you've got a Coupe or a Spider that you could display on the stand, please drop me a line.

Our cars always attract a lot of attention and compliment the other Lancias on display on the main LMC and the Montecarlo Consortium stand.

If you're planning on attending the show, please drop by and say hello!

I'm planning on coming up either Saturday or Sunday.  Hopefully the weather will be kind and I will give the Spider a run (she's not good enough to put on a stand) 

Look forward to meeting you

Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car. Oversteer is when you hit the wall with the back of the car. Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall and torque is how far you send the wall across the field once youve hit it.

Matt, I have finally decided to go on the Friday, so hope to meet you there and say hello. Happy to spend some time on the stand if that helps. Also for anyone going on the Friday where the tickets are non discountable, buying an auction catalogue for 40 from Silverstone Auctions gives you show access as well for both Friday and Saturday according to Silverstone when I rang them, hope this is correct as aim to buy one for the two of us going to the show!

Will be going on the Friday and hope to meet up with some of the forum members.
If I park in the NEC car park is it a walk to the show or do I have to take one of those shuttle buses?

Tim, you can walk or take the shuttle bus - depends if you have stout walking boots :-) 

I usually walk because I cant be bothered queueing for the bus!

I have booked Friday night 16th) in the local Travelodge, it's only 2.6 miles away from the NEC and 30 for the room.

If your planning on staying up near the NEC, the hotel rooms are getting snapped up already!

Chaps

I will be at the NEC on Friday and Saturday morning up to 11am with the Monte Consortium and had to wait until now to book due to a minor operation on Saturday just gone. I have booked into the Coventry Hill House Hotel for 24 a night excluding breakfast (at the NEC) on late rooms. There is group of the Monte Consortium types in the hotel who will be going to the NEC each day. This is definitely not the Ritz but it is nearby.

Cheers

I will try to come long, probably on Friday or Saturday to say hello.

Been too busy to do much on the coupe, but it looks pretty good now from a distance as long as you dont spot the missing exhaust!

Hi All

Just to say thanks for the hospitality given to me by everyone on the stand. First chance I have had to meet any of the Beta folk in the flesh so to speak and thoroughly enjoyed my time.

Looking forward to attending some of the meetings next year, hopefully with the other half.........

Here's some of my photos from yesterday's visit to the show  Wink









I thought it was a great show with lots of interesting things to see. I should have got there earlier but I got there around midday and then met up with so many people I knew which meant I spent more time chatting than looking around the show  Grin. But it was a very enjoyable day out  Cheesy

Sorry for the quality of some of the photos. I only took a little camera with me with a tiny flash and the lighting in some places was too weak from my camera. Unfortunately the worst place was at the Beta stand where a number of the high level lights were out so it was probably the darkest place in all the exhibition halls  Embarrassed The rest of my photos can be seen at http://s1237.photobucket.com/albums/ff477/TheoKyriacou/NEC%20Classic%20Motor%20Show%202012/?albumview=slideshow

So, I spent Friday and Saturday (and my Dad also) helping out on the Lancia Beta Forum stand. As ever the cars on display were extremely well turned out and I was pleased that throughout the whole of Friday I only got positive responses from the public that stopped to chat.  There were stories aplenty about ownership of a Beta or a relatives Beta from days gone by, and what a cracking car it was, this made the day pass very quickly.

This years stand (I think) was not the best from a position or lighting perspective - but hey, you cant win em all and the public still seem to enjoy seeing the cars.  Howard's black VX Coupe was drawing the most admiring looks I reckon. But I admit I am now finding myself admiring the Beta Sedan  more and more, James and Lorenzo's Bangkok Yellow car gets better and better every time I see it. (Thanks chaps, for the tip on the upholstery spray by the way - my purchase has been made already!)

I got to meet up with some forum folks, Peter, Mark and Rachael - so I can now put faces to names, which is always good!  My Dad is not really a Lancia fan like I am, but he thoroughly enjoyed the show too.

I'd just like to say my own personal "thank you's" especially to Mandy & Steve Dodge who did a lot of behind the scenes work that needs to be acknowledged, and the usual stalwarts....Tony Harrison, Andy Collins & John Bower for all their hard work that went into getting the LBF's attendance at the NEC show, plus not forgetting the owners that kindly lent their cars for display.

Great stuff guys!!

Yes, or to completely change the colour. For colour change it works better when changing light to dark colours.

Good to speak to you Tony, James and Lorenzo yesterday.  Sorry couldn't stick around, so much to see.  Must be best show ever for content: 12 Halls of it!

The 'sprayed' parcel shelf looked excellent!
