Despite the lack of Club attendance Sarah and I decided to continue to Newark last weekend and support the event.
We didn't camp, as the lack of a gazebo and on hand babysitters would have made setting up camp with Martha interesting. Instead we passed her over to my folks for the day and set off early on Saturday.
New company car got a good test, we did the 210 miles up in 3 hours exactly
and despite the bleak forecasts drove up in full sunshine.
On arrival we realised we were 50 mins ahead of opening time, so blagged into the main show area, rather than public car park.
This was the scene at 9.10 am
We then found Alan (AKA Ciderman and Dad, and one all car club member) waiting patiently for the show to start having spent a night under canvas.
As we sipped our coffees we saw a familiar car arriving
Rose, Ces, and the Nova I will always refer to as Nena took their place on the Club Nova pitch
As the morning progressed Club Displays did grow, with a good selection of marques despite the occasional shower. The sun did burn through in spells though, and at one point we had to take our coats off as it was too hot !
The upper hall housed an interesting collection of American muscle - I loved this truck which arrived during a wetter period
This MK was the tidiest car in the for sale area, and looked like a nicely set up track car
This 3 wheeler was Novaesque with the removable canopy
I spent a bit of time examining MEV sonic and rockets - looking at the side profile I can't help thinking it could be adapted to slot under a Nova body
This rebody kit had me interested, two main panels, bolt/bond on and off you go - anyone guess the donor?
Overall a good show, and well attended despite the bleak forecasts. Hopefully Sunday was a bit busier - it always is at newark I think. We departed at 2pm, and had a good journey back too, 3&1/2 hrs door to door, and again sunshine - the sun shines on the righteous.
Not so many pics to share as I got too much water in my lens but the rest are here:http://www.flickr.com/photos/jim73vw/se ... 205573368/
