Another one found on Facebook, in aid of a local hospice.

Sunday August 8th 2021, website suggests that they'll be entertainment and food stalls, so a good outdoor day out for all the family.

southwalescarshow

Facebook link

I've registered and named the club but not specified how many from the club would attend. There appears to be 2 dates on the website but I think this could be a rearrangement due to covid, the August date is on Facebook so I'm going with that.

I could be up for this, depending on any date clashes with a few other things I've got on.

Me too. A car show would be a great trip out after lockdown.

Certainly a great location for me.
I will keep an eye out for developments.

Likewise - Maybe we can catch up and go to this meet together and finally get that cuppa as we are practically neighbours?

Definitely, Although you'll have to go in your own car, I think I'll have a car full with the family. Take the scenic route from Usk.

We'll have to meet before then, when things get back to some sort of normality, sooner rather than later hopefully.

Less than 50 spaces left on this one, they expect all spaces to be allocated before the end of this weekend, so if you want to display you'll need to join up asap.

I've held off cos my Coupe is not on the road yet. Hopefully I'll have it reassembled, but it also needs a respray which I can't estimate time on yet....

I filled in the online forms last week, and it said I'd hear if successful. Nothing back yet....

I did too, glad it seems that the show will go ahead. Something to look forward to car wise at last

When I registered, I just applied as a solo exhibitor as I couldn't see any option for the club stand.
So after my confirmation email recently, I emailed them back asking could I be moved to the club stand.
Today they came back to me and said no problem, we'll do that for you..... there's now 2 of you registered for the stand!
So Morrison, it looks like it's just you and me!!

Got my passes today, if anyone's interested in just attending they still have tickets left.

Or if you fancy joining our 2 coupe display, they may be able to squeeze you in as an exhibitor if you contact them direct to ask if anyone's dropped out.

I planned on taking the more direct and scenic route. Pontypool, Usk, and out through the lanes. I suspect that's a bit of a detour for you?

Was looking to arrive at Chepstow around 9.30, so leaving home 8.45.

It looked like a good turn out, did you get any pics of the coupes together?

Turn out was good indeed, I didn't take any photos until the end, after Rob had left. There are a couple of good photos that Dave from Facebook took and put up, but that's it.

I don't know about headline news, but a picture of a coupe with it's bonnet up isn't an unusual sight is it....? :-)
