I can whole heartedly concur with Ricksta on this, I also felt privileged to be able to display my car on the club stand. I think I had the easy bit, I would like to thank those who worked behind the scenes prior to the show to make it happen. I never heard one negative word about our cars or the stand for that matter. What was also interesting was how many other clubs used Rovers or MGs as their support/back up vehicles. A great but tiring weekend. There were a few people who said that they wished to buy my car (it's not for sale, yet), but no money was offered, but I think they do this as they loved the cars that were displayed, and if this encourages them to go out and get their own 75 or ZT then it was worth being there.

Having been there for the whole weekend it was great to meet the guys behind the forum user names, and get to know them, we have the common interest in the cars, but we were able to get to know more about each other.

The photos of my car make it look Brown, but that is the lighting at the NEC therefore I had trouble convincing some people that it was Dorchester red

My wife thought your car was brown, but I explained it was just the lighting and it was really British Racing Green . To be fair though, I am colour blind! I also informed her I wanted a Deep Sea Green interior like yours (yup, got that wrong too) .

A lovely looking car though (whatever colour it might be). It looked right a home on the club stand.
