Yeah, well done Jason, well deserved!!

For those who couldn't make it, here is the proof.....


Stonleigh National Kitcar Show - 2012 by marlinpeter, on Flickr


Black Cherry Marlin Sportster by marlinpeter, on Flickr

I've posted my other pictures of 'cars that caught my eye', on my Flickr site.....

http://www.flickr.com/photos/peters-...7629987559555/

I hope you enjoy them..........

P.S. Mike Garner has promised me he'll be there next year in his Cabrio to pick the prizes ! (that's if he isn't in the main hall as MBM's European agent, selling dual diaphragm boosters )

Truly a vision of loveliness when seen in the flesh.

Wish I could get my better half as enthusiastic as Pauline is over your Sportster.

Congratulations Jason.

Really good to meet everyone else at Stoneleigh that frequents this site.

Dennis

I second all your sentiments!
Well done Jason, Vikki looked resplendent!
- thats the second Overall Show winner who was a Madabout user - Simon Gregory won a couple or three years back.

My Sue shows less and less interest in my car, but says it due to how long its taking to build!!

And yes, it was really nice to meet up at Stoneleigh, particularly the first timers - Dennis and Mark.

As Peter says if my foundling importing buisness doesn't flourish due to supplying duff servos, and I can keep out of the Marlin AGM tent (good move those who stayed outside! - 21/2 hours the meeting lasted) I hope we can meet up next year with more of our cars there together? I've got no chance of competing with the likes of GOO and Vikki - Lee Hunter will have cossetted his Cabrio for another year in its carcoon, and made it so spotless and shiney that none of us will get a look in next year!

It was good fun to see you all
Mike

Did anyone get some pics of Vikki from the side? With all the excitement, I've only got a couple from the front.

I know you've got some on your Flikr site, Pete - would you mind if I pinched them?

No problem, your welcome to download them. I'll see if I've got any more, not posted on Flickr.

Thumbs up

Well done indeed, Jason - Vikki really is a beauty and the trophies are thoroughly deserved.

It was great to meet everyone and have a chat and inspiring for me to see so many other Marlins in the flesh. Let's see if I can turn that into some progress on my rebuild!

Mark.
