You're not alone there Haydn ..... met and chatted for quite a while with AndytheGreek who bought along his M2 and later on meeting up again with him, called him Nick the Greek! Shock horror. :shock:

Fortunately he has a brother called Nick, so he took it in good faith.

Cracking fella too and thoroughly enjoyed looking at his car - all started with his mention of the Recaro baby seat for his daughter!

Guy in the pink polo shirt was Bradley I think mate. Red 15 plate 118d. Techie is his forum name. He now looks like he's wearing a full pink bodysuit due to the effects of sunburn :lol:

There were some absolutely lovely cars there, not just on our stand either and apart from the dropped and airlift ones (not for me but fine for those who like them) I was only sad to see the BBQ left to rot on our stand, but fully made up for with David's cooking and lovely grub, so not lost completely.

By the way Paul that blue chair that was left was Mark Hurley's. Wish I'd have known then could have at least had it in store for him. Or even better, Bradley was with us and he lives in the next town to Mark :(

Yep, that is a pity, but such is life as they say; maybe the few that were left might have picked it up and find out it was his ..... for eventual return.

Was a great day guys. Got a little bit sun burnt though! Good to see everyone's pride and joys! Good work for organising Andy and David (?) for being designated chef!
