The NEC Classic Car Show is now a "Classic" event for the quattro Owners’ Club.
As always, Phil Jameson and his crew have done us proud in Hall 5. The choice and presentation of the cars is always immaculate. The excellent lighting does show the cars at their best. Great display of cars this year and we must all thank the members who took the trouble in bringing their quattro to Birmingham, remembering that the Show is over 3 days, quite a commitment.
Very busy over the 3 days and quite a few qOC members came to our stand for a chat and already asking about next year’s events. All members were presented with a free qOC lanyard. It is also amazing to see how any previous quattro owners came to see us, remembering when they had a car and when they sold it, long gone memories. Also, most visitors mentioned Rallying in the 80’s and how amazing the quattro was, indeed it was. Others, asking about values, some looking to buy a quattro and enquiring where they could find one.
In conclusion, a very successful show for the Club. No doubt, the Classic and Car Show raises the iconic status and profile of the quattro. See you there next year.
