Thanks Rob, its early days and I don't know at the moment, but I will keep you posted. However I can tell you that it will be limited to a maximum of 15 this year. Also the theme is the Evolution of design, looking back over the past 135 years. So we will be keen to present at least one of each generation, and any models which show specific developments or uniqueness (not sure that's a real word).

I hope this doesn't mean the show will be a blow out.
James - Sarah's post was simply advising the requirements of the Show Organisers to make the weekend safer for all. The fact that you added the "mad" smiley to her post, and your above comment, would imply that your main priority is that the show will not be a "blow out" as a result.

I will be exhibiting on two different stands over the weekend and will no doubt be required to speak to a lot of people. My priority is to keep everyone (including me and you) as safe as possible, and if it means that a few people (of debatable enthusiasm) miss the show, then so be it.

Please give a little more thought on how some of your comments may be perceived by others.

Totally concur with you on this Rich but I have my doubts that the facile comments will not continue . Previous warning shots across the bows have failed .

I had to think about your double negative comment for a bit there Chuffer - but two negatives make a positive so we are ok - unless you are jump starting a 12 volt to two 6 volts - ask me how I blew up a 6 volt - second thoughts better not

Rant Time.
I see that any attendees to the London Classic Car show will need to show proof of negative Covid tests. And that's fine - the organisers are doing the 'correct' thing (and I support their adhererence to HMG's guidelines). But out of principle I will not be going. And similarly 'out of principle' I will not be going to any other event or location that also requires a 'negative' Covid test. Why? (you may ask) - it is the age old 'rule for one' and 'not the other'. On the one hand the majority of the UK population are following HMG's guidlines re. Covid jabs, sociual distancing, rule of numbers etc etc. - and presumably we are all in agreement here? - yet we have a government that has 'allowed' attendees to fly out from the UK to religious festivals in areas that are know Covid not spot 'no-go' locations and additionally return also on private charter flights back to the UK with no quarantine requirements like us 'mortals' have to. So now as a result we are seeing a significant 'hike' in the newly classified ultra contagious Delta variant.....all as a result of our hopelessly inadequate governments legislature. And now all of us who have followed HMG's recommendations relating to Covid are seeing the results yet again of HMG having allowed the G7 conference to continue in 'real time' (when for the last 18 months the rest of of us have been using Zoom and various other on-line video links for meetings). We now have a major Covid infection increase in Cornwall due to all the G7 participants and their 'hangers-on' staying in hotels and dining in cafe's etc not just in Cornwall but probably in areas close to London airports and hotels when the delegates first arrive in to the UK (and once again before they return). I am infuriated putting it mildly - that all us us in our private and business lives have sacrificed much over the last 18 months - and we typically have a government doing exactly the opposite to what they are telling the population to do.......
