Now Lads it looks like I will be joining you all on Friday as I will be in Lincolnshire on Thursday and just happen to be coming down the M42 on the way home on Friday.

Please do not change your plans just to avoid me. The NEC is a big place and there is more than enough room for us all. Some of you I know well by sight, Others I have not met before, and  I may well pass you by in a crowd. But I look forward to putting faces to names when we do meet up. Lets hope it knocks spots off Retromobile.

I hear that Baynards leap has opened again. Does anybody know the new name and address? I may try and drop in there on the way up.

See you there

I cannot comment on the opening of the collection. They normally closed for the winter at Byaird's Leap. However I know the intention is to have a collection to put on show for next year. The new address is near New York - the real one complete with an umpire, a building in a state, Downtown, man with hat on, central parking, Wall's treats and stuff.

Yes & Yes  ;)
Will leave it to Lord Cyphus to post the first pics and tell the world.  Fully expect that Stuart will have bought Baby Bamby chassis 001  ;D

Come on Stuart, this is no time for a Saturday morning lie in !.  Get some pictures posted of the new Evan's cars and the NMCR stand at the NEC  >:(  Not everyone is going to see it in the flesh this weekend.
