Nice one :cool:

Rather than email, download the exhibitor entry form and it's free to enter www.bcvcshow.com/

Hopefully I will do Sunday rather than Saturday last year.

Re: Bridgwater Car Show 2022

Hi Andy, I would love to say I'll make this. But currently unable to confirm!!! If I can though, I will.... Got to break last years dry spell in style!!! Cheers, John... P.S. Maybe a bit of interest from the London area or close areas and we could arrange a 'Convoy'??? Hi John, Would be great if so...

Well done especially the MOT pass :cool:

Sad to hear you struggled with getting a respray, but maybe I shouldn't be surprised :?

Re: Car cover or don't cover

I agree with Paul alot of it depends on quality of repaint and laquers etc, basically if you buy a cover you take your chance :? I think on red, black and darker colours you will always notice issues that you might not see on white and silver etc. I don't cover mine in the garage with sheets anymore...

Re: A Busy Black Swan breakfast meet. Jan 2022.

Great pics again John :) OLE still looking good :cool: I still remember seeing it forsale online when it had 19k miles on it and the price it was advertised for :) I do like an old Triumph and the Rover P6. I had Stag back in 2003, my first taste of classics although it was a pretty unreliable piece...

Re: Car cover or don't cover

Hi, Many people would rather give the car a good polish/ceramic coating and leave it out in the elements. In the past I have used Stormforce outdoor covers on a few cars and only one car I had issues. On my black Capri I would get white areas (looked like clouds) in the paint especially along the sw...

I was expecting it to go back red, but personally I think that orange is a great colour for any Capri especially the S :cool:

Re: Who Remembers?

It is the law at Christmas to have a TV guide for the holiday period, the TV Times has always been the one for our household, as a child and also now, Christmas wouldn't be the same without it. The one below is from 1985, Minder appeared on the 1988 cover too. https://ukchristmastv.weebly.com/uploa...

Re: New Years Day 2022 @ Walton Bridge

Great pics again John!! A majority of those cars are now tax exempt, and assuming they are insured all year around it's much better for just getting out when they want :cool: I agree there is something about Inkys tow truck :) You don't see too many early Sierras about, I reckon I have a rare beast ...

£53 in 1978 is equivalent to £311 today, according to the B of E inflation claculator.

That's still cheap Andrew, I wonder how good it really was or if there were other hidden costs :headscratch:

Re: Exchange and Mart 1978

Good find Nick :cool:

Less than 10% vat :D

The average weekly wage then was just under £100 a week, so although the respray sounds cheap it was still alot of money for many back then!
