NEC Classic Car Show 2017 - Display your Coupe

Post by Davva » Tue Jun 27, 2017 6:40 pm

The club has a stand again this year and we're looking for cars to be displayed. In the past the admin team have selected cars that have been to shows over the summer months and noted the nicer ones. This year we are doing it slighly differently, we will still make the final decision on who shows their car but are giving you the oppotunity to put your car forward. This offer will also be put on the Facebook group aswell.

What we want is one picture of your car, what engine it has, the year and any modifications (a brief list, not everything), also the general condition, please be honest, if it has rusty patches then say so.
If you are selected, you will need to deliver your car to the NEC by midday on Thursday 9th November and won't beable to move it again until at least 6pm on Sunday 12th.

What size stand have we got this year and how many cars are we looking to fit into it.

The theme this year is Family ties so anyone that can make a storey up about their car on that theme or Links it to any other car that might be on the coupe stand or any off the other stands feel free to put your idea forward. However if you have a car you want to offer and will not miss it for the best part of 4 days then I am should the club can link you into the theme some how. You would not be leave the stores that been used in the past but most off the visitors did. Like the year the was only Tahiti Blue coupes on the stand and everyone who asked why we only had one colour coupe on show was told that it was the only colour that they came in and the though in other colours where ALL re sprayed so not original.

Now I could come up with a car that has been owned by one family from new and will be in its 25th year off ownership by November which would tie in the coupes 25th Birthday if we got stuck but if a full re spray would have been completed by November is the question. I will now more once the body shop has been out to look at it on Monday.

Doesn't look like you will be short of cars to choose from. I know it was on the stand last year so am not really expecting you to choose mine but if for some reason you need it, it is available incase you need a back up.

Pic from last year. Apparently I got a good price for it. :D

Keep them coming, this will run for a month or so to give people the chance to post.

If you have posted on the FB page and not here we can't guarantee we'll see them, only entries on this thread will count.

If you want an unmodified original coupe in reasonable condition, low mileage and the best/worst colour (delete as appropriate) my Amaranth coupe could be available.
