For me it was a great way of putting a few faces to names and wandering around a show that wasn't as crowed as the November one! Great to talk to a few visitors to the stand who had memories of the cars too!

I look forward to meeting a few more at upcoming events! Thanks for organising this one Peter.

Observations from a display-stand newby:

Not being one adept at idle conversation I found the experience
quite fun and interesting.
It became clear that if a chat is wanted, they will approach.
'Just looking' was often a no eye contact event, someone to leave alone
to just enjoy the sights.
There were exceptions to the above, occasionally, of course.

I'm willing to do it again.
Sorry to have missed meeting the Sunday guys.....next time!

Thanks to Peter for organising the stand, and everyone who helped man the stand, good catching up with everyone, and good to finally meet Guy, been photographing your car for years (good to put a face to a name)
As Peter said, it's a show worth doing again.
I could only make Sunday, but here's a couple of my pics of the stand plus the VX Coupe that sold at auction.
