The Footman James 27th Bristol Classic Car Show, 2006
Meets, Shows and Events
After the normal months of frantic phone calls to obtain entrants, everything came together on a cold Friday afternoon late in January 2006.

This year we exhibited in the Exmoor Hall, where we were allocated three stands covering 75% of the available space.
We all arrived after dinner and then had to thread our way past various other exhibitors as our hall was right at the back.

It's always a joy to see the faces of these people, due to the mixed reaction hot rods have on the classic car enthusiasts - and with seven running V8 and V6's purring along, we certainly get noticed.
  Exhibiting their cars at this show, we had:
Nick Lang (37 Ford Sedan)
Andy House (36 Ford 3-window)
Lee Pike (32 Roadster)
Rich Roberts (29 Model A)
Craig House (Ford Anglia)
Dr Bob Jefferies (32 Coupe)
and Mel Chave (32 Roaster)
As an additional exhibit, Nick Barnett trailered along his '32 pickup rolling chassis.

This went down very well with the crowd as the work on this is excellent, and it caused more than a few people headaches as to what power plant was fitted - and as for the gearbox, did anyone have a clue?
Listening to visitors comments, I received the impression that our standard of vehicles went down very well , and this also came to light with good write ups in both Practical Classics and Classic Car weekly.
To cap what was a very cold but worthwhile weekend, we came away with three trophies including Lee Pike winning best paint in show. This made both Lee and Jerry Denning laugh as they both thought how much the paint work had sunk over the years of abuse the much-travelled B had endured.

Thanks to all who took part - as it does mean giving up your own time, and all you receive is a china mug in return.
