I will confirm the date tomorrow and it will not clash with Le Mans, almost certainly the weekend before*

*or next time I go to the pub. I am happy to stake my name to 10 interesting cars so please turn up

OK.

Saturday 10th of June 2017

I am also going to try and sort out some kind of ticket system so you all buy a ticket and then get the about the same amount back when you arrive. Just to encourage you to actually turn up.

Give me a few days to sort that out but expect something like a 20 attendance fee which entitles you to a free 10 note and some free shit.

This is just to cover my costs of setting this up and then none of you freckers showing up

We have an update!!!!

Meat and Motors

The Tribute Automotive Owners Club BBQ is definitely on June 10th 2017

There will be just 10 show car places.
There will be room for other people etc but just 10 in the Car Show spaces of honour. Depending how this one goes I might arrange bigger things in the future in other parts of the country but I need this to be a success first.

The lucky people who are quick enough to book their space in the car show will get a free, yes FREE, BBQ Burger. Look at the menu on p[ub website and you will see these are great burgers with no added donkey meat.

The lucky people who are quick enough to book their space in the car show will get a free, yes FREE, Tribute Automotive t-shirt

The lucky people who are quick enough to book their space in the car show will get free, yes FREE, automatic entry into the public vote for the "Car of the Show" with a keg of beer as the prize!!


I have borrowed this place : http://www.brewhouseandkitchen.com/venue/southampton/

If you are travelling a distance then there are loads of hotels in Southampton to suit your budget. Perhaps your other half would like a weekend away shopping in Southampton on Saturday and a cruise around the New Forest on the Sunday?

WCA - Z300S Original
Ian A - Z300S Replica
Lucky@LeMans - Something road worthy
LancelotLink - Something possible off the back of a trailer
Chris - What ever he has on the road at the time

FatBloke - MX250 - 'Best efforts' commitment so far
Drum Major - MX250 - 'Best efforts' commitment so far

So 5 of the 10 spaces are gone for definite.
2 people will make best efforts depending on work etc.

I will try to keep the list up to date at the end of this thread so everyone knows when the show spaces are filled.

I have pulled some favours to get this off the ground and the landlord will also be publicising this with leaflets, social media and a family day or beer festival at the back of the pub to ensure there is a good crowd. I really don't want people saying they will turn up and then not bothering so at the start of May I will be asking for 20 from each person reserving a show space that will be fully refunded when they turn up just to encourage those who might waiver on the day.

If someone doesn't turn up, for what ever reason, there will a random choice from any of the other interesting cars there to fill the gap.

All make sense?

Blimey, 7 definites and 1 probable already. Anyone else better get in quick or people will be selling their spaces on the black market.

There will be a charity raising thing at the show where people pay to have their photos taken while sat in the show cars. If you don't want the great unwashed sitting in your cars then that is fine, just let me know on the day.

Also possible show video being produced by a professional videographer, this guy : https://vimeo.com/luisarnold

Brush your hair and dress pretty :-)

Lucky@LeMans - If he gets back from holiday on time

A quick shuffle and we have 8 definite, 1 probable. When the last places go I will open a 'reserve' list in case anyone drops out late.

Even if you don't get a show place, please come anyway. The more the merrier and plenty of time to poke around other peoples builds and ask questions.

Hmm- apart from the radiator grille, lights, filler cap, bonnet bulge, interior and colour I suppose it is a replica. I'd rather it was known as "Z300S Barchetta #4" !!!

Default Im up for it

Hi Nick

I would love to come along. Cobra up and running although the paintwork is not perfect yet. Showed it at Wickham square on Boxing day - got lots of interest.
Lots of people scratching their head as to what it was. Cheers

Steve P

Hi Steve P,

A cobra you say - have any pics etc as yet?

It's good to see one newly built as the SWBs have been stealing the limelight recently.

Many thanks

Dave

Steve,

Just found this video of the event. Is your Kobra the black with red stripe shown right at the end of the footage? Looks cool from a distance.

Default Kobra

Greetings.
Photos hopefully attached.
Paint came out of a rattle can - well actually about 50 of the bloody things.
Lessons learnt and I now have a spray gun and compressor. I may have another go in the spring. It looks ok from about 6' away.
I had a look for the Wickham video and the only one I could find had a fraction of a second of my car right at the end. Was this the video?
My Kobra is a 2.8 Auto with a loudish exhaust. Lowered suspension. Spaced out wheels. Goes well. Looking forward to getting back to it soon but been working on my other vehicles recently. 4 cars and 4 motorbikes is ridiculous and I have to thin them out. Kobra staying obviously :-)

Smile Kobra

DO NOT OPEN IMAGE AT WORK - Strangely after I painted my car black with red stripes I looked at the back end and thought it reminded me of a lovely black arse wearing a red thong! Photo attached reflects my thoughts
