Hi Nigel

Good stuff, thanks, have messaged you earlier. Also have modified thread to add pdf instead of link.

Hi

Just trying to get to grips with what to have on the stand and wondered if anyone would be willing to have their car on the stand? I am not looking for a pristine example unlike the November show, but ideally a rolling restoration (or one you are happy to deliver/collect on a trailer.....!). Depending on your view some work could be attempted whilst on the stand as that is something the organisers encourage you to do. Note we will not have power on the stand, so any work would be manual/battery powered tools etc.

Thanks

Peter

Hi All

This is a last call for anyone willing to have their rolling restoration on the stand?

I shall be opening it out to a wider audience if I do not hear back from someone on the forum.

Peter, did you still want to give mine a go or is that just going to be too complex with me away?

Hi Stuart

In short I have no way of transporting it, so unless someone else is willing/able to, then will sadly have to pass. This is why I thought having a rolling one would be simpler.

Yeah the logistics would be a pain. If I were here I'd find a way to get it there but being in Rome is going to make it tough. Oh well there will be other shows, it might even be complete by one of them!

Hi All

Ok, so cars all sorted for the show (thanks Tim).

I am now looking for someone to lend a hand setting up the stand on the Thursday, apparently we have access from 09:00 to 19:00 on the day and I do not expect it to take that long to set it up, so if anyone is happy to give me an hour or two (or more) on the day that would be great.

Thanks

I'm hoping to come down on the Sunday now. Friday was the preferred day but it looks like I have to prepare for Stratos2's collection which means Beta7 can come into the garage on Saturday! I'll probably just buy a ticket on the door, advance purchase might be a waste of cash....

A not very good pair of photos of the stand before it was finished…..

Hopefully Tony will get chance to do a better job on Sunday

Thanks to Tim and Neil for helping out with car and setup

Hi

Just a quick post to say thanks for all the helped on the stand, Nigel, Tim (help and bringing his car), Tony, Bob and Guy. We had periods of being busy with interested visitors, ranging from those remembering old cars to those interested in buying. We also had a number who were interested in other Lancia models.

I would be up for organising it again as it is very much a smaller and less crowded version of the November show, but going forward for me a 4 day stint is not going to be possible, so having at least a couple of folk per day will be necessary.

Hopefully Tony will be able to post some decent photos of the stand…!!

Well done for sorting this Peter. Looks like it has been a good profile raiser for the Forum and Betas in general. I'd hope to be able to devote more time next year if you decide to do it again.

Hi Neil

Oops forgot to mention you above….. so thanks for helping on setup day and ferrying me to the hotel and Tim back home. As it happened this was doubly helpful as unknown to me there was a bus strike in Birmingham so getting to the hotel that night would have been challenging.

I should also like to thank Mark who loan various parts to display on the stand.
