It was a great turnout and made even better by the fabulous weather.. very pleased by the attendance and I hope everyone who turned up had a good time... I know I did..

A great selection of Alpinas too..

Sorry I didn't get a chance to chat with you all, spent most of the morning running round like a headless chicken trying to bring back inline what was at one point starting to look like a bit of a shambles..

thanks to all. look forward to the next event.

Richard,

Was it you that I spoke about VANOS problems on your B3?

If so, there is a chap experiencing problems here: http://www.fastsaloons.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=680

If not, who was it? The same link still applies if anyone can help

Finally, well done Andy and Simon for all your efforts. Great to meet up with so many of you fellow "nuts" and looking forward to Donnington and also the next informal pub get together - see new link in General Forum here: http://www.fastsaloons.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=2100#2100

Take care all

Charles

Typical media people - flashy up front and then don't finish the job properly...

Hi all.

Didn;t speak to any of you at Gaydon, although I was mightily impressed by the turnout. I wish my car was on the stand.

Some beautiful machinery there. My girlfriend loved the 3.4s roadster with the cheeky number plate Wink

I felt the show was quite, especially going on the previous years turnout. nevertheless, the quality of cars in attendance, more than made up for it!

If ANO's B10 3.5 was a black E28 with chrome wheels reg.no. C824 NHR, that would be Gary Beevers. No mention of the E24 B9 3.5 in the Coupe Section?

Hi Pete

Thats the one !

Regards the coupe - noone mentioned that one - so cheers.

There are quite a few of the cars not listed on the register - if you know the owners a gentle hint would not go unnoticed !

Cheers
