Thanks Jason. To be honest, i think your stunning car deserved an award more than mine.

I'm suffering from a bit of beetroot head too! Not to mention my neck, arms and legs too....

It's a pity you went off so soon after the judging, but that is understandable as it was a long day with a lot of walking. I hope you both made it home safely.

It was indeed. It certainly made everybody turn and look when that car arrived!
In case anybody was wondering, apparently the new owner of the GW car is Dr Brooklands.

What a great day, and I hope to catch up with you again soon.

Although as the club have revised the awards system it wasn't a gold as such. The only medals, apart from the concours gold, silver and bronze, were "winner" awards. It's a huge honour and I am very pleased to have won one. :D

Still well deserved though :D

I haven't won an award, and judging by the judge ( :) ) that did the judging ( :lol: ) at an event last year, they are like Magpies attracted to shiny things that have been restored and not concerned with originality/patina :? I know what I prefer....Awards or not :)

I always thought that Doctor Brooklands was a lot younger and he looks the same age as my Dad , I Do think we need a Doctor injection & A Doctor Laser .
It was a good day with the Eastenders Capri what after some time and a change of side stripe we realised also nice seeing the Car SOS car what on this Thursday on Sky ch 129 National Geography at 8pm . I think it was a lady as she collected the award .
There were also ( as you can see with Andrews great pictures ) some really nice mk1 capris that looked so clean and mint they almost beat Nicks clean Engine bay .

Let’s hope we could all get together next year as that would be great .

Hi Mark,
Yes, it is a good show and probably the largest regular gathering of Capris. A great day out.

Great pictures! Is it me or do the 7 spokes not look right on a MK2? Just not for me I suppose.

Hi All,

Just to say what a great day (Well, I was pretty late to the party, but still well worth the drive out...) out this was. Also great to catch up with Andrew again, very well deserved Gold, yet again there fella!!! How do you keep doing this??? And just for those who don't believe he can keep doing this, here is the man himself. Well actually we have Dan, Jason & Andrew....

Jason, really great to meet you and put a face to the name!!! Shame your Capri was so filthy though!!!! Where had you been??? :xd: :xd: :xd: Sorry!!! Great to meet your Dad too, I usually have mine in tow as he really enjoys these meets / shows, but he was still up North this Year so missed out!!! Dan, I don't know how we stood next to each other and did not catch up, really sorry about that fella. I hope your well and still enjoying the Capri??? Also your Mum there too....

Jason, it was a shame you had to nip off, I was chatting with Andrew about the Quad head Light conversion I've done and Andrew couldn't get the Pics to show with the Sun Light, so I was about to bring this over for you to have a butchers as you had expressed an interest in them. Anyhow, all is not lost, you ain't that far from me and if going to a show near you or Kent Classic Ford show, I could nip round for a cuppa and a chat!!! Is that just inviting myself for a cuppa????

Anyhow, I have started using a Dash Cam in the Cappa now, as I have been with my other car and it is amazing what you see. After I left this show I was going over to Cambridge for a night out with a mate over there, so set the Sat Nav for country lanes etc and just sit back and enjoy the drive, only thing was I saw this.... Watch the Little Red car as it turns left at the junction... (Not sure if I should really post this in Rant??? But it was part of the day for me...)

You can't quite see the whole thing as the camera is to the near side, but they drove down the wrong side of the road then up the pavement, hitting the Mini in the process, then carried on for a while till they went off the road again into a fence... Again on the Off Side... Argh!!!!! Watch out for your Pride N Joy chaps!!!

Well, Cheers for posting the memories Andrew, great to meet you Jason and nearly Dan, all the very best to all, cheers,

John...

John it was great meeting you at last sorry I had to get off quick but my legs gave up at the end , yes we must all meet up with the bonus of hearing them front speakers and your quad lights . Love the picture you took . Also that dash cam footage what are people like , they must have been drinking .
We did have a really good run back and went around the M25 Gatwick wise as it was not that busy . Still saw cars doing well over 70mph but as Dad had to drive back we kept at 60mph also he had to fill her up with petrol .

Personally, I wouldn't say that they don't look right, however, I do prefer the original wheels.

Hi John,

Isn't it just! Although you really have to feel for the driver of the Mini, talk about being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Sadly, it's hard to protect your pride and joy when there are drivers like that around.

Thanks for your kind words and for capturing my moment of glory so well! :)

Andrew.
