Spent nearly 3 days at the NEC meeting lots of interested parties, many people from the MMO's forum, and a few who didn't appreciate what I've done to PU. (They're entitled to their opinions and I can respect that)

In short though, had a really enjoyable time and definitely deserved my drink in the evening.

Shame some folks didn't appreciate your beautiful little beastie. (Spied your pick-up in a couple of photos on the LCV Register site http://www.minorlcvreg.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=499&start=10 )

There are always naysayers, just pity the fools :D
I've had it since 1972 and not just from the standard worshipers. Most annoying was from a fellow hot rodder who asked when I was going to upgrade to something he considered 'worthy' :evil:

Like another Ford Pop :roll:
I've got an idea, lets issue some rules to say how your car should be built so we're all the same. Exciting :?

No, he was meaning Ford model A,B, Willys coupe, 40's Ford etc etc. Strangely enough, cars that he'd owned or still owned.

Same up here, although today was lovely, but damp in places with some salt residue.

Adam (& Paul) chatting to Mike Brewer, or Wheeler Dealer fame. Was Mike making him an offer he couldn't refuse, or just salivating over his mega clean pick-up?! :D
