Well that was an absolute riot with a great turnout [y]... THanks to John for organising (you need to work on your parking organisation mind [;)] *runs a mile*), an ace turn out too... Fairly sure I counted 22-24 at the peak time in our stand area (where we basically took over a massive part of the car parking!)

People in and out all day, a few forums on there (J29 is the only one I can unfortunately, someone please fill the gaps)... Photos all round I'm sure to come (I'll get mine uploaded in a little bit - I am a plank for not realising I actually TOOK my camera!).

Some cracking detailing, cars were stunning (not just ours) - liked the campers and beetles that VW Club was it? had. Rolling road was a bit of an odd one - no front end cooling... That little Arosa I think won it too in the end - quite an impressive result [y]

Good to meet several new people today, including some of the old school southerners [;)] - finally met the likes of Adi Nuff Valves, caught up with Cage and briefly saw a8wpg (sorry for not searching out before the end [:$] - and a welcome to some of the newer guys like Pricey (lovely car, those angel eyes definitely look bloody awesome).

Dan (Viper) wins the award for best jalopy in his sisters clio too [:D]

We walked away with Best Stand, but sadly missed out on the Push-The-Bus contest by around half a second, which was a shame - I'm sure if John hadn't poo'd himself when I shouted "HEY MATE! YOU'VE GONE BRIGHT RED" we might've managed it - so sorry lads [;)]

And finally, some major respect for Curley who was down for the first half of the day (had a great crack having a proper chat with you - I'll remember who you are in future) and also Gary Cundliffe - the legendary "I'm gonna do tons of miles this weekend" - only stopped by for a couple of hours (enjoyed the stand parking fun I'm sure [:D]) but good to see you again too mate [y]

Get stuck in with comments and thoughts - goods and bads - as well as all those photos I'm looking forward to [y]

PS - oh and FAO ESCY - what was up with you?? In and out more times than a whores drawers and never even stopped - worried Kev'd find swirls in your paintwork?? [;)] [:p]

Me me me - first thing the old dear said when I walked in was "what's happened to you then?!"

Wish I'd got me arms out earlier [;)] Photos still uploading, sample to come shortly [y]

Photos can be found by clicking here

Not great, not a lot of them and mainly ours, sorry about that - excuse the pretentious poses by me and Neo too [;)]

EDITED: Plate blanking so bad I've removed it - as we had show plates I'm presuming that if people were bothered they'd have covered up!

What a fantastic day out !! Our stand was packed.. I was really impressed by the amount of cars we had.. great to see some members from further afield too.. respect to you for making the trip down ! [Y]

Good to see all you guys again.. all the regulars, even less frequent members like Turbo Paul ! [Y] Sorry didn't say hello to you at the time.. nice chattin to wayne too, good to hear how your project is comin together ! Just really pleased by how many people turned up [Y] Wish i'd got there slightly earlier.. though I did spend the next ten minutes manouvering around the front of the stand.. first the front was facing the wrong way then it was changed round then it wasn't, then it was.. think I drove an extra mile in reverse ! [;)] [:p] Still, I got my waxin done, (it was chuffin hot though waxin' in the morning sun !) been usin some Klasse AIO & SG courtesy of Jace, (cheers fella) topped off with P21S !

That showroom at bbt is a bad, bad place for me to be with a credit card.. I got some good advice on coilovers though. They have just started selling Weitec and the guy said they were "quite new" dunno if he meant they were new to thme or new overall.. and he didn't have much feedback on them.. I know kev has them for quite a while ! Anyway.. think i've made a decision.. so a bit more saving and they will be mine [:)] Great to see a few of the volkswagen cup cars in the shop, being prepped too ! [:D]

The Phat Dubs stand was cool.. Justin's VR6 with even more chrome shiny bits ! Did I spy a chromed subframe too ? Those bugs and the buggy's were cool too [Y]

Graeme, what were you up to ? You kept turning up, then disappearing again ? [:cool:] [:|]

Great weather too.. just as good as last years event.. and best stand for the second year running ! [Y] [:D] [:)]

It was great to see many of you all again and even though I was '4motionless' enjoyed it as much (party bus parked at other end[;)])
Hopefully, when we all meet up again the 4mo will be sounding a little different with some added parts beneath the bonnet!

It's always great to see peoples cars in the flesh as the pictures never really do them justice, cage's springs to mind for certain, awesome mate! But come to think of it everyones there, looked fantastic, lovin the new ride height Adi! and RS Golf, well, nothing we don't already know, an inspiration to cleanliness!

Was confused as to Essex Escy's frequent coming & going, although judging by the swirls visible on his tailgate the 3rd time he came & didn't stop I wouldn't have either[:p]

All in all had a great afternoon, Olivia, my daughter, even enjoyed it, especially the van push!

Cheers guys, and gal!

Catch up with you all soon........................

I would just like to say a big thank you to all who gave Barbara and i a warm welcome as newcomers to the "show scene", we both thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

The weather held out nicely and hopefully will have some decent pics to upload when i've got them checked.For the record its been raining up north(started about 8 miles from home)so down that way was the best place to be. [Y]

Look forward to seeing more of you in the future, by which time i hope to have my embarrassing paintwork " sorted", or at least improved. At which point special thanks to Kev for his cleaning and detailing knowledge and for giving me the courage to have a go at T-cutting. Just need to get a PC sorted now.[Y]

Will post when i get some time later.

Thanks again Ian and Barbara

P. S. You lot have a lot to answer for as my wish list got a lot bigger today[:D]

Just want to say what a great bunch of cars that were there today, the UK-MkIV stand was by far the best and have given me some real inspiration for the future ... just need the money now to get started!!

Nosaj, was good to meet you, that's a lovely car you've got and some useful tips as well (especially about the door handles!) [;)] Sorry I put the car on the stand, then had to move it out again but the Revo guy was testing my car with his laptop to make sure there was nothing seriously wrong with it.

Not very impressed with the rolling road at all, my charge air temps apparently got so hot that the ECU went into safe mode and killed my boost resulting in no power. [:'(] But it doesn't look too bad, just a new MAF sensor and now possibly an intercooler to keep the temps down!

I'll definately be coming to some more meets and hope to introduce myself to some more people next time. Got dragged off to the shops too early on today!

Well worth the trip down, thought i'd have done more miles but as its a bank holiday weekend i've got tomorrow to play with yet.

Totalled 840 miles in two days attending VW shows, and had a ball!
