Dream cars film night, photos here please

I've just got home from what I can only describe as one of the best nights out I've had in a long time. Myself & KC55 arrived at 7ish & until the films started at around 9 we were bombarded with offers of nibbles, lager & bubbly by the excellent waiting staff while we had a look around the Dream Cars stock & the cars that had shown up.

The films were excellent, the first Chelsea Cruise only being knocked off the top slot by the huge cheer that a number plate managed to raise, mind you it did read 11 DYN...

As the first film finished we were invited to try a top flight curry & more complimentary Fosters, the Battersea Boys seem to have got hospitality sorted!

I did make a point of finding Milt & Stewart to thank them for a great night before we left but I think they may've started drinking a little earlier than I did so thanks Milt, Stuart, Nick Pettitt & all concerned for a brilliant night of nostalgia & hospitality, I can't wit 'til next Saturday, you are making it weekly aren't you?!

I'll post my few photos just as soon as I find the lead for the camera.

Oh! What a night !

Yep ! It was AMAZING as Stew would say. And i bet he has the biggest sore head going this morning. Haven't you Stew? Well who would have thought there would have been such a great turnout last night? When Brian Surreys cine film was showed first every time Brian,Mike or Alex etc appeared on the screen everybody when crazy. Then Ken Sweeneys film came on it was even more mad. Alex photos from 1976 USA Trip with music was really great as well. What can you say but a massive thank you to Stew,Sam,Milt and Tracy plus all the others that made it happen. It will never be bettered. ps and Nick from Time Travel who put there Super 8 cine film on DVD so we could all enjoy a piece of history. From Ken, Ken's Brother :D George and his son James. Thanks again.

Where do I start to write this one without getting it all wrong?
As the time drew nearer I knew it would be a good night. What I didn't expect was a simply great night...for me one for which the memory will last forever.
I was priviliged to be a part of a fantastic crowd of people in the seventies that all shared a common interest. As time moved on people came and went within that group but a common passion linked them all. In recent years the internet has shown me what I missed in the eighties as I moved into other areas of the hobby and brought home just how many people made up parts in that puzzle known as the 'Spirit Of The Fifties'. What Stewart and Milton did last night was to put that puzzle all together and bring back time. And they did it with a bang...
Photographers on the gate, a real red carpet, A steady stream of bubbly and canapes, Marilyn wandering freely, a real curry, choc ices!,endless bar, proper screen, cars and an obvious amount of very hard work to get the feel of things just right!
What the people did was bring themselves. Faces I hadn't seen in 30 years mingled with people I'd only got to know recently but each and every one went towards making the evening what it was. The funniest was looking into faces until it finally clicked just who they were. Someone saying 'I know you don't I?' Me saying 'yes I think you might...' Some I owe apolgies to as I couldn't remember the faces at all. Sorry!
For those that were there it will always be 'remember that film night at Dream Cars...'
Who to thank? Well Ken Sweeney(Ken57) was the catalyst with his Chelsea film. Then Nick Pettit(Timetravel) took things a little further with his help in transferring things to DVD. Things grew with film input from others, Alex, Ken, Brian, Pete and apologies to any others I've missed. But the stars?
Stewart, Milton, Sam, Tracey and your families. Your hospitality was just out of this world. You made everybody so welcome and spoilt us all beyond belief. Be proud of what you achieved because you truly touched every one of us. I'll never forget it. Thank you.

It sounds and looks like it was a really good night. Its a real shame we couldnt make it , maybe next time.
I think its very fair to say that our history and the nostalgia surrounding it is very important. The Americans realised it a number of years ago and we have too.

Well done to the Battersea Boys.......respect:smoke:

Now where are all those cars that went out of fashion???

Remember "Nostalgia is nothing new"

Milton, Stewart, family & friends,
My thoughts completely echo those who have posted previously, was a fantastic night, great to see faces old n new, the movies were like being transported back in time, with certain images being as clear as yesterday & some that I remembered when seeing, but had completly forgotton about.
The atmosphere, abundance of drink, excellent food & friends made it a trully memorable evening.
Many Thanks
Mark, Paul & Steve
