View Full Version : Exeter Kit Car Show 2011 - 22/23 October 2011

Is anyone planning to travel to the Exeter show this year?

Here is a link to the publicity info: http://www.car-shows.co.uk/exeterkit.htm

This is my closest show so I intend to be there. Unlike other shows in the calendar this is more of a "car-park for kit cars" so the normal Club Nova facilities (catering, shelter etc.) will be missing, but if the sun is shining it should be a good day out.

If the weather isn't as awful as last year, we'll be there all things being equal! Just realised that the last time we went, DJ was there also, so it must have been a while back! :shock:

I seem to recall the weather was OK last year...

If the Green Machine isn't sidelined by some other minor malaise, I should be up for this. It would be nice to catch up with Richard Oakes again, I still have a few more questions I need to ask (Columbo stylee...)

It may have been OK at the show, but it was hissing down at this end of the country so we didn't bother!

Sarah, Martha and myself will be there, most likely on the Saturday.

Anyone else planning a visit?

We're working, I'm afraid.

Mike's still up to his eyeballs in building work as well so hasn't even started on the Nova...

Hope the weathers OK :crossfinger:

Sue and I will be there on Saturday for a few hours. In the tin-top not the Nova though :( .

See you there if you are going - any Club Nova members heading back up the M5 from the show on Saturday are welcome to get off at J22 and call in for tea and cakes at our place. PM me for address and mobile number if you're interested.

Mick and Sue.

2 Nova's on display and 7 (and a half) Club Nova members attended on Saturday. Thanks to you all.

Lauren was there in the lower car park showing off her Green Nova with modified chassis, new tyres and very shiny paint. Also, Ces and Rose were there with Nena (James ex Nova) in the upper car park looking superbly turned out as usual.

Their attendance was particularly important as James and Sarah also made the trip to Exeter (with 5 month old Martha - their joint project :laugh: on display) so James and Sarah had their first opportunity to see Nena since parting company.
Sue and I were there too and had a great time catching up with the others and viewing some of the (mostly unattractive :nonono: ) kit-cars on display.

Some pictures to follow soon.

And here are a few pics from the day:

From a distance the unmistakeable shape and colour of Lauren's Nova amongst the crowd of nondescript 7's and stuff.

Sue gets her first look at James and Sarah's new project (Martha). A one-off, one of a kind and definitely never to be 'completed'. :rofl:

And here is Nena, now owned by Ces and Rose, but still looking just as good as when James and Sarah got married in it.
