Hello all,

The club are pleased to announce that for the first time we will have a club stand at the very large Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show which will be held at the NEC 9th - 11th November 2018.

Nearer the time we will be asking our Membership for Coupes to be on display at the event so we can show the public what a excellent car our beloved Coupes are.

Club members will also be eligible for a 18% discount on ticket prices for the event.

We have what is a great spot right by the entrance as people walk from Hall 4 into Hall 8.

I've been for the last couple of years, it's a good day out with lots of great cars to see across a wide range of types and values - doesn't have the really expensive stuff but that is OK with me.

Yes we are very pleased to have been accepted and to have such a great spot. It is organised by the same company who do the Practical Classic Show in the Spring time.

The club will be looking for members coupes to put on the stand and will run a separate thread in due course.

Well I have got the Clutch Pedal problem sorted with a new Master Cylinder fitted by Motormech so Yellow Peril is good to go again.
So if needed I could support with the car on the stand if wanted? Yellow 20v VIS 60k miles Cloth seats no sunroof.
Just let me know.

I can help on the stand on Sunday 11th.

I don't think my car is show standard at the moment but happy to assist anyway if required.

Well I never realised there was a separate thread. I kept checking this thread and I never saw a different thread on active topics so I didn't see anything about the stand.....now you have shared the link I can see a lot has been happening. Shame as I live so close and I had the whole weekend clear but finally gave in to family needs. I obviously need to learn how to search this forum. Doh. Hope to see fellow Coupers on the stand Sunday....Doh....

Isle of Wight,
I have two tickets for Saturday from my friend (who has had a minor heart attack). I'm only asking for a £20 donation to charity - The British Heart Foundation. Please reply here plus email me acday@gmx.com. I can send by 1st class post.

Many thanks

Hope its a positive show for the Club.

For those visiting us at the Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show this weekend, we would be very grateful if you could give us your ticket stubs when you see us. We're in Hall 8 stand 300. The club can claim 50p for each ticket stub collected. thumb

Hi guy

I just wanted to pop in and say what a pleasure it was to see 3 wonderful Coupé at the NEC yesterday. The cars, owners and stand looked amazing, I can’t believe that it’s taken this long for the Coupé to be shown at the CCS.

It’s been a long time since I sold my 20vt and I often find myself thinking about it (especially when I go in the loft and see all the bits and bobs I took of mine). They’re fantastic cars and it’s great to see you guys are still showing everyone how special they are.

Kind regards,
Chris.

Hi Chris,

Thank you for the comments, we are proud to have been offered a space to display the Coupes at this years show.

You once took me out in your speed red 20VT many years ago and I was hooked on the extra power you had!

The clubs first attendance at this years Lancaster Classic Show was a big success.

I'd like to thank everyone who helped on the stand and offered their Coupes for display. We had *a lot* of interest in the 3 coupes on the stand and the members volunteering gave a very positive outlook on the Coupe.

As an output of the AGM we did a banner for club membership benefits and as a first for the club were taking new memberships over the event. We enrolled additional members, I can't remember the exact number though so will wait for BallyPete!

There was a great feeling of camaraderie on the stand between the club members and personally I got to know everyone much better!

Then draws to a close a fantastic year of shows for the club and the season picks up again in March with the Practical Classics show!

I hope others who were on or visited the clubs stand can share their view on the show thumb

Two new members were processed directly on the stand- both paid cash at the time. We also had several enquiries from people who took the information away with them to complete later. I think we will know the final total of new members by the end of the week.

We also sold two of the old white club T-Shirts (£3 each) along with a backpack (£16.50) to a total of £22.50 and there was interest in the club baseball cap. So having a small stock of club shop items at the main shows in 2019 may be a runner.

Great to see the club stand yesterday and overall another really good Show - I got there just before 11am and left when people were packing up stands and still felt I could have spent more time.

Hi all
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. bow

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. cool

Ali
