I've just been thinking about how our stand compared to some of the others this year, and to be honest I was taken-a-back at the standard of the cars we had on our stand. Sure there was some quality motors on the others stands but we had consistently quality motors (if you see what I mean) and I feel that some of them deserve a special mention.
I'll start with Big Phil's - we all knew that this car was going to be looking great as always, but no one was prepared to see it blinging in the sun like it was. Good work big guy. All it needs is a CDTi engine and you'll have the complete package
Next is Payney's car - I've always admired this car as the colour is fantastic and Nick really knows how to look after his paintwork. But he's raised the bar to another level with the quality paint flek on his alloys. Nick has told me of some of his plans for the car, and all I can say is watch out for this car next season as it's going to kick ***.
Next is a car I hadn't seen in the flesh before - Soulman's. This car caught my attention almost as soon as it drove onto the campsite on the Saturday. Now, normally I think the JDL kit is just too much, but on this car and in conjunction with the other mods it really works. The car is in my eyes unique and a beauty.
The next car I wanted to have a closer look at after viewing the Irmscher trip photos was Pacarcher's. This is one sexy motor and I think I'm right in saying he bought it mostly like it is. Obviously he's added his own personal touches to it and it looks amazing. It metaphorically grabs holds of you as you're walking passed for some reason.
The next car didn't grab my attention until the votes started to come in for it for members choice and this car was Duncan's. I've obviously seen this car quite a lot at meets and shows and I knew it was a quality motor, but this year it's something special. I can't quite put my finger on what it is, maybe it's the VXR side skirts and the new 18's, or maybe because the paintwork is in great condition (it should be most of the panels are new, due to a few recent fender benders . Good work matey!
Last but no means least is Davie K's. This is one of those cars that's grabs you again. You can't quite put your finger on it but you just have to stop and have a closer look at it. This to me means the mods on the car all work really well together and nothing is over the top. It was in fantastic condition and is a credit to you dude.
This was just a few of the cars that have stuck in my mind after the event, but all the cars on the stand were an absolute credit to their owners and did the club proud.
Anyone else spot any other outstanding cars?
