Well here goes.Some pics from sat.Thanks once again for the warm welcome.I will probably catch up with some of you on the L2BR.

A couple of shots from the stand on the Sat





And now the rest........










A very rare combo.101 with the original Rubery Owen powered trailer



Another rarity.101 Vampire.One of only 10 made.



Series 3 with the Makrolon armour.




Another rarity.110 SOV as used by the 175th U.S Ranger division





The replacement for the 101,that never materialised.Ill fated LLAMA









Where the 50th all started.NAS 90



Lovely 25th addition classic







Awesome Bowler Sport





Latest 60th.Some how,it doesnt have the appeal of the 50th.Its not special enough IMHO





Finally one last picture of the stand.

Excellent photo's....

James I really don't believe you...

You had GB002 on rubber mats on the grass...!

It's a wonder you didn't wrap the tyres in clingfilm like the custom car concours lot do...

Great pics - I'll add some more below.

GB001 is owned by Neil Stockton, who's up in Salford. He owns a bodyshop - and if you look at the crossmember of 001, it's now Atlantis Blue! I have his card if anyone needs bodywork done.......

Great show - as I said before good to meet everyone (some new faces, some old!).

More pics from Sunday:

Sorry my 50th did not make it to the 'party' - it was good to meet up with you all - faces to names and all that Very Happy - James thanks for the organization and good to meet you and Mark again - the 50th is looking more and more shinny - what's next on the chroming list the chassis ?

Does anyone have plans to do any of the other shows this year ? I'm hoping to do Eastnor - great setting and the Series 1 meet at Chepstow. Another option for a meet up perhaps ?

Excellent job all round... Sorry we weren't there...

Seeing such a collection of well prepared 50th's guilted me into getting the hose and the Zymol out for the old girl.

We will try and get to Eastnor this year too... a bit closer for us up North. We will have to meet up if we go... Very Happy

Anyhow this is how she's looking at present...
