Practical Classics Resto Show - 31st March to 2nd April

Post by MrGoldtop1960 » Tue Jan 24, 2017 9:20 am

Morning All,
I'm on the look out for a really nice 5/5a or Coupe that would be available to be on the Club stand for the above show at the NEC over the period Friday 31st to Sunday 2nd April.
If you wish to put your car on the stand and be available for the weekend, please PM me or send an email to kevandsar@ntlworld.com

Thanks
Kev O

Hi All,
Just to let you all know that I've now got a full stable of "shiny" and "In progress" cars for the RSSOC stand!
Shame I'm not going to be there to see them :(

Cheers

To anyone attending this event, I've bought tickets on line using the club discount code and have received a second email that contains a voucher for each ticket bought for handing to your car club, this will enable them to get £1 commission back for each voucher they receive, so don't forget to print off and hand in to the RSSOC club stand where they will no doubt be gratefully received, the 2nd email I got made it look like I'd bought two more tickets at first, what worried me is I was sat in a seminar at the time of booking and was confused as hell about it.
