Sadly I will not be attending this year as have a holiday booked for that week. I was however wondering if there was an appetite for applying for a stand at any of the other larger shows next year?

Hi Neil

Bad wording, I meant the shows which attract folk from all over such as the restoration show, probably not one for us, but hopefully you get the idea? I seem to remember you have done the Tatton Park one before?

I did the Manchester CCS for a couple of years for LMC, but that show, organised by the former NEC Team fell by the wayside, which was a shame.

Hi

Well having said maybe not to the restoration show I wonder if it may be one to try out? It is in March 2023, see https://www.necrestorationshow.com/. Anyone fancy helping out if I organise it?

Following on from this I would also appreciate some ideas on what and how to show given this is a restoration show, not like the November show.

Once I have a clear idea on whether to proceed to apply, I will transfer these to a new thread.

One cheeky idea popped into my head as I received the latest painfully high bill for my beta restoration.

Can we get one more beta on the road over the course of the restoration show? Get it in the centre of the stand, get the collective expertise mucking in on whatever needs doing?

It'd need to be a car with a fairly limited amount of work needed, or perhaps a limited but tangible scope of a bigger project. Recommissioning a laid up but otherwise sound car perhaps, or getting a non runner going?

Obviously I was cheekily thinking of my own car a bit here, but I suspect I'll be done by then - it's primarily refitting the interior left now

Hi Chris

Sort of along my thoughts, but I first need a few folk to step up and commit to help man the stand for either part of a day or more to make it workable. So anyone prepared to help out?

Happy to put my hand up for it, slight caveat that I'm far less capable / knowledgeable than most.

This is Fri 24-Sun 26 March at the NEC to save people a google. £57 for the 3 days / £40 two days / £25 one day

Hi Chris

You will be no worse than me on my first NEC bout of stand duty. The key is having one or more actually on the stand at all times. Nothing worse than someone coming onto an un-manned stand. What we do on the stand can be decided later, just need bodies and note exhibitors do not have to pay to get in…..

Hi

Thanks to Tony and Bob volunteering to help I am going to put in an application for this show. The dates are the 24th to 26th March with setup on the 23rd.

If anyone else would like to donate a day or more to helping out that would be great.

Also looking for ideas on what to put on the stand as they prefer some sort of work in progress given the show’s theme.

Perhaps when I tow the Spider back to the UK I could make the dates coincide and drop the car off. You would need a decent sized catch tray under the car to collect errant fluids...  Grin

I could help out on the Friday if you need me. I'd have offered more time, but I had already booked tickets for a show in Manchester on the Saturday.

Thanks Neil, I will PM you. Had confirmation of application. We should get confirmation if we have a stand and size/position during December. In the mean time if anyone has any ideas for the stand or an nteresting car, think some restoration required and able to get it to the show then let me know!

Hi Stuart

It would be if great interest I would think. So how do we get it there would be my first question?

Thanks

I can always beg / borrow / hire a trailer and tow it over with the horsebox.

The shell itself isn't very heavy so moving it about is easy enough - It'd probably be best to show it on the rotisserie.
