bummer that you still have to pay if your car is considered good enough, and no mention of the lower floor area!!!

the choices are park inside in the show, outside in the club area, outside in a general area, and anywhere you like at bluewater!

anyway, just thought i'd let you know....

Warm and friendly as that invite is, I've checked my diary, and unfortunately I'm washing my hair that day. Each strand. Individually. With Conditioner. Followed by a 7-hour 'Pate Care Regime'. Otherwise I'd be right there to help them offload whatever tat they're flogging.

Sorry to seem a bit dim, but what's it all about? I'd like to get out a bit more so might put my car forward, but won't bother if it's going to be a bunch of 20 year olds with modified civics and loud stereos. I'm getting too old for that.

I know I'm getting old but I don't feel the need for a drip tray, and if my battery is disconnected my hearing aid wont work. Guess that's a "no" then from me

If this does indeed attract the yoof of today, will they be able to read it, or have the patience for it? It's in English and it's full of rules...

I didn't, that is why I was hoping somebody could paraphrase for me. I have posted a picture on their facebook page, I even got a few likes.

we got to Bluewater early to beat the rush, not knowing quite what to expect..... but we were soon in the hall (about 7th to be exact....) plenty of room to move!

special mention for this lil dutch CRX... owned 13 years! soon after getting it, the owner lost heart/enthusiasm/mojo for the build, so it sat neglected in a garage for 10 years.

in that time, he stripped and sold most of the bits, engine, interior, running gear, and was left with just the shell that was about to be sold. he sale fell through, and the owner bought a house with a garage.

the owners friend said he should build it up, and offered his turbo engine. when the build originally started he has blended and smoothed the trim, but in the intervening years, tastes had changed, but the body had already been modified so had to stay!

in holland spares are rare, so he had to go to honda for the bits... nothing major, just things like all NEW suspension, fixings, interior, lights, wiring..... nice and cheap as we all know! ( he got the last left headlight in Holland, and had to wait 6 months on back-order for the right!)

all back together, painted and on the road, after 13 years it was done! he drove over from Holland for the show, and took best paint!

it seems the 70's customising touches are resurrecting themselves, even pike nuts seem to be making a comeback....
