I thought it was about time I gave a little update on where I am with the book....
It is nearly finished, well subject to the editor making sense of my ramblings and the layout artist turning it from a shambles into something presentable and then the printer.... and so on.
Loads of people have contributed, and if you are tempted, then the deadline for them is May 20th, which then gives me a whole month before I pass the whole thing onto the above-mentioned folks. I really appreciate all the support that you people have shown.
I don't think I would have attempted to do this had it not been for the welcome shown to me at Worsley (thanks Glyn) and then much later at Billing (last year) and the ongoing support from Russ D, Mopar, Nick Pettitt, Nick Butler and Mike M.
You're welcome pal, it's been a pleasure. Looking forward to seeing it. It seems like a long time since we were sat at Cleethorpes and you first told me about it - 2007?
I know I am resurrecting an old thread, but I was at the 78 Bell Vue show with my Mk1 Capri twin cam. I shared the stand with the V8 milk float, my Mrs was pregnant with our first child and it was fingers crossed she didn't give birth . I went with a few of the guys and their cars from the Valley Vans and Cruisers Custom club, the only one I can remember was the chopped straight six 55 Austin van. It would be great if anyone had any more pics of the show as I never had a camera back then.
I think I must be suffering from old timers disease as I never went to Belle View Manchester in 78. It was the Birmingham Custom Car Show in 78 but I can't remember the venue name so if anyone out there can help with any pics or info I would be most grateful.
