Tony

Great to hear you have it all sorted out. I am back with the Montecarlo Consortium now we have been allowed back in. I am sure I will be allowed off the stand for good behaviour  Wink

Cheers

Can't see me making this year I'm afraid. Busy on Friday and away at the weekend.

Hope it all goes well.

that must have been the busiest NEC Classic show that I've seen, all the lancia stands far too busy for me to speak to anyone nice cars on display  especially the red pre facelift coupe, seemed a less prominent spot than usual but as the whole show was so busy no doubt it wasn't an issue.

It was pretty lively wasn't it?

The show was made for me by the Aurelia Convertible the Midlands Auto Club had on their stand  - that thing was beautiful!

Seeing Chewbacca in a Bond Bug was slightly surreal though.

Yes that Aurelia was stunning I can't imagine it was that perfect even when new

For those not there:

Sorry about the over exposure - something about the NEC lights plays havoc with my camera

These days I hardly ever bother with a 'proper' camera I find that for snaps my phone give better results

Have to say that was one of the highlights of the show for me, sounds like Sat was busier than Friday which was okish on the Beta stand, but not that busy. It was pretty busy however in the main thoroughfares, glad I went and had a recce before the show opened, benefit of being an exhibitor and being allowed in when you want.

Aside from the aurelia which was too nice and unusual I didn't really take any pictures myself it was generally too crowded. No doubt Tony will be along later with some though?

Hi Neil

I tried on my phone, but came out really rubbish, Tony should be able to oblige I would imagine, he was going to get in early Sat am before the show opened.

Popped in on Saturday to the show after a 5am start from Falmouth in a hire van on the way to collecting furniture from my parents near Derby. Great Betas on display and very nicely presented. Hopefully seeing them will give me more drive to complete mine!
Got a picture of the Coupe but unfortunately managed to cut the ends of the HPEs

Franco's coupe looks fantastic - is it a green interior like mine or the gold? Can't tell with the lovely colour-sapping NEC lighting.

Well done to all, just a shame I couldn't manage to get there myself this year.

Nice. Even I would have to admit to red and lime green as a little 'lively'

the Italians did use lively trim combos in the early to mid seventies I recall Alfasuds had some slightly colour blind inspired combinations.
