I've posted on Facebook and added a few photos over the weekend and tonight but I'd like to say a huge thanks here to the club for inviting me to display Marvin at the Classic Motor Show.
I get my petrol head gene from Dad who I lost to cancer 5 years ago this week. He'd have been chuffed to see me and my car on the club stand and the fantastic response we all got from visitors. The level of interest was a genuine surprise to all of us and proves our beloved Coupés are recognised as the classics we know them to be. 😍
It was tiring but I thoroughly enjoyed the weekend. Thanks to GG27 and Tim16V for their help manning the stand on Saturday and Sunday. Good to see Country Cruising and other club menbers dropping by the stand too. It was great joining Serg1 and Skiday in representing our club with our 3 different versions. I enjoyed meeting and talking Coupés with fellow, past and potential owners. I'm not that technically knowledgeable but enthusiasm comes over and I was happy to let people sit in my car so that they could see for themselves that they do fit!
Thanks to all concerned, particularly PeteP, BallyPete and Gunzi for getting our club to the show. Thanks for providing the team shirts and for looking after us with coffee and lunch. I must also thank my fiance Lez for all his support and chauffeuring me home whilst my Coupe was on display.
I think club attendance at classic shows this year marks our acceptance in the classic car world. I look forward to seeing more Coupes at future shows.
