Today I've been out distributing flyers for the 2020 NEC restoration show. This is part of the deal for having a stand. Done the local shopping centres, bus and train stations plus the airport!
We have taken these shows very seriously for the last few years; last March we had over £1 million worth of vehicles on display and just last November we took home the sponsors award for cars they would most like to own.
This year we will be taking a more light-hearted approach and having some fun; we will attempt to recreate a typical 1970s/80s-era back street garage, the ones you saw everywhere back then. There will be four regular everyday motors on the stand - 2 in for repair on ramps and 2 on sale.
We are sourcing lots of stand memorabilia such as signs, tools, a krypton tuner etc etc, bunting, flags and my wee 9ft caravan will be dressed up as the ' office '. Three of us will be in boiler suits and 3 in camel hair coats and trilby hats.
