HAVE NO F... Oops, sorry, have no fear, I'll be going tomorrow.

I'll be taking the digicam so if no one else posts pics then I'll post mine tomorrow evening. So was there a BA XR there on display? Can't wait to see one in the flesh.

The BA looks great but it is loaded in a transport trailer so you only get a limited view.

However, it was enough of a glimpse for my wife to fall in love with it, so guess what's on the shopping list in the next 12 months!!!!!

Well worth the money to go and see the show, some very nice cars on display.

Now I wish I did enter mine with the club display!

I came, I saw, I wept openly and like a little girl...

There was some absolutely gorgeous models on display there, and the cars weren't too shabby either!! :s6:

I visited the BA truck 8 times during the day, and I had to physically restrain myself from jumping the rope and going in for a closer look on each occasion. It really is a great machine in the metal - the photos are superb, but just wait till you see it in front of you! It just looks so "together", and so "right". The front end actually is seems to be a lot smaller in the flesh than in the photos, especially in the headlights. The new treatment works superbly, and any reservations I have ever had about losing the quad light arrangement were blown away. It has a great presence, and spot-on proportions. In the metal, you would never EVER mistake the donor body for an AU.. yes the doors are the same, but everything else is so coherent that you'll never find yourself looking at it in an "AU light".

The Ford girls were great, only bettered by the lovely white-clad ROH lasses (pictures will be uploaded shortly!)

Much nice metal, many new, many old, and sadly - some given the Rice-a-Riso makeover. Plenty of grand old Stangs, mint GT's, and tough coupes. Some very tough metal giving the dyno a workout, and some very questionable metal giving good taste a workout.. *cough* "Undertaker" Commodore *cough* Autosalon style stuff isn't my cup of tea - you can leave your "theme displays" at home..

All in all, a great day out with the BSR boys, and fantastic to catch up with Rob Herrod, father and son Hillier, and even some of those devils from the Dark Side!!

Special mention to Wasa - your lenswork is second to none! (He must have taken over 100 photos, and of those, at least 4 would be of cars!)
