Thank you

I felt a little out of my league at first but once the doors opened to the public it proved extremely popular as demonstrated by them voting for it , the same thing happened at Ignition when it was on show opposite the McLaren stand I thought folks would be more interested in them but no it got loads of attention 8-)

Little update

The GTE has been out at a few more events since the Monte Carlo Classic Car Rally, in March I took it to the TT Breakfast meet at Motherwell College along with a few other retro car owner friends that I had asked along,.

A few days later I was headed back to the NEC in Birmingham at the invitation of the show organiser for the Practical Classics Show , then on Sunday gone it was out again for the Drive It Day show at Summerlee Musuem in Coatbridge in support of the charity CHAS

A few photos from those events

Fuzz Townshend stopped by for a chat at the NEC and informed me he will be up in Scotland next month at the Morris Leslie Classic Auction if anyone is thinking of going
