Post by Dean » Sun Sep 17, 2017 6:00 pm

Just spent the weekend at this event and had a very good time, spotted a few things of interest to me, especially this, anyone know who's it is?it was for sale at £1200, Perfect paint and a generally very tidy example of the TZD.

It was a very good weekend with even more diversity than last year, Tesla was there with the model X making it dance to music and there was even a pair of Sinclare C5's trundling about.

That's the one Paul, they make it flash it's lights to the beat and flap it's doors like it is flying, damn big cars though. There was a nice H van there, the BX which although not a colour i would have picked looked really nice and won me round, must be a respray but a damn good glass out one, there was also a Picasso (no idea why) and mine.

The blue Alpine widebody was very nice and managed to talk to the owner who was a nice guy.

Will, losing yours was a terrible shame but i am sure you will do wonders with your new 24v.

It was my GSA at the Manchester Classic Car Show. There was space on the stand for more cars, but there were some last minute drop outs. Anyone who'd like to see an XM on a CCC stand, you only have to volunteer yours. In return, you get a free pass to the show. You can either wander round the show or hang around on the stand talking to whoever looks at your car, as you will.
