Re: Lancaster Insurance NEC Classic Motorshow 2016

Not as yet Dave.
Don't know who's cars will be there.
Thats up to Alex, depends on the choice / variations of cars offered.
I believe that there will be Mk1's only this year.

Re: Lancaster Insurance NEC Classic Motorshow 2016

There will be an 800 stand, looks like it'll be in Hall 1.

Re: Who's still active?

I'm still here too.

Had a look on How Many Left.com, which gives a figure of 837 various 800's licensed.
We've struggled to get 30 at the shows this year, wonder where the other 800+ are lurking.

Re: BMC Rally

Thanks Dave,

just a bridge camera, knowing their limitations like you have there's not always much difference in picture quality.

Re: BMC Rally

A few more pics, I took shots of all the cars on the stand but some are missing here, I took these together later but did'nt notice at the time they were blurred... Damn Sorry to those owners, perhaps someone else will be along with some pics. Good to meet everyone again and some for the first time....

Re: Rover 800 Owners Club at the NEC 2016

What`s with the yellow rust bucket Cortina mk3... why is that there ? Apparently the owner intends to restore it ! Other than that, an object of curiosity I think, it certainly attracted a lot of attention. Same with the MG,and a Mk2 Cortina in a similar state. The lecterns looked realy good - a ni...

Re: Kates D reg 1987 820Si Saloon

Just spotted this, that car has passed on to the right owner / custodian.
I saw it at POL this year and is superb, looks even better now. 8)
Glad it's got a garage too.

Nice one Kate.
