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 Grin
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  Cheesy
