NEC 14th - 16th November 2014
We arrived back in Bexhill in the early hours of Monday 17th November. Here are a few comments that were written by members that attended the show. Leaving Bexhill at 2am Thursday, we arrived at the NEC approximately 8am after a relatively uneventful drive up. What do you want to spend? 10p for a new washer or £1million less £5000 for a Gull wing Mercedes? Who do you want to meet? Stirling Moss, Mike and Ed from wheeler dealers, Elvis, Roger Moor (sat in the Volvo), Wallace and Grommet. (The last few were on the Bexhill 100MC stand but didn’t say much!) Meet hundreds of people who had one of those. The most visited car on the stand was the Cortina 1600E (Made in Dagenham), most photographed car Piglet Wallace and Grommet, lots of attention to the miniature show ground display, (asked many times if the cars were for sale), children young and old were attracted to the scale electric on Charlie’s Jeep. The Elva covered with Teddy Bears like the miniature cars asked if they were for sale. Lots of interest in the Rover featuring Halloween and the Lanchester Christmas Lights. Thanks to Charlie for his inventiveness with regards to the stand which looked brilliant and the Club banner which could be seen from afar so nobody could miss it!! Saturday was by far the busiest day with lots of interest in our stand and many favourable comments such as “well done”, “well presented” and “very , very close to the theme of the Show with an excellent variety of club vehicles”. Phil had a good time too! A good time was by all but if you want to attend next year if we are invited remember the days are long and very tiring but enjoyable.
