Lucky to be secretary to a noggin that has a cracking range of cars that their owners keep in great condition, a big thanks to all that provided their car some of whom won't even get to the show themselves but arranged for other members to take them to allow them to be on show, you are all truly a credit to the RSSOC and thanks from myself you make it a pleasure to organise

A very good display of cars indeed, the Sabre was a particular favourite of mine but they all were a credit to their owners. Here are a couple of the other cars that took my eye and some of the Middlebridge stand too. Well done to all involved who gave their time and cars, I know how much hard work goes into this.

My mate tells me there was a Rochdale GT "barn find" up for sale at the show. Tempting. :wink:

There was a rather pretty jaguar xjr for sale as well...
Until you look a little closer and see that the front shock turrets are rotten under the seam sealer/sound deadening. Such a shame as its a really tidy looking car otherwise.
