    Hi All,

    Quite......The Mercedes-Benz Club has a stand.

    I am a member and was there last year......I am still uncertain about going on Saturday, it would have to be Saturday for me, but I do think the entry ticket and the cost of parking/courtesy bus adds up to a lot of money to access what is essentially a trade fair.

    I still might yet go though.

    Single tickets for the Saturday are £21.50 on the door (discounted to MB Club members to £16.50 if purchased soon enough and in advance) and if bought in advance on your own account £18.50. (see www.necclassicmotorshow.com)
    If I remember correctly parking/bus was about £8.

    Thank's Mic, I googled it awhile ago, ten quid to park now. Easier to catch the train methinks, delivers you outside the door so to speak!:D

    I have learned that MrsB will be ''sitting on'' the Grand Children on Saturday which has prompted me to be decisive!!!!!.....ticket purchased.
    14.00hrs. for coffee on The MB Club stand works for me.

    Was that the year that the Car and Trucks Show were combined?.....That year I was working for Arlington Motors (Trucks) Chadwell Heath and as one of the more junior salesmen we had to attend over the weekend.
    To gain access to our stand could take over 30 minutes from the start of the exhibition hall a distance of 80 metres! Chaos.........

    Yes TV --I was a regular vistor in the early days as well ---parking was free (included) if I remember ?
    Far too expensive for me nowadays even though its only an hour down the M6.-get ripped off for food -a brew and hot dog -its around £100 for a day out for 2?

    Well i went yesterday...great day thoroughly enjoyed:D spent some time on the MB club stand, renewed my fees and got a nice Meguiars gold class wash and wax pack as a bonus:D i really enjoy this show...highlight of the show year!

    Dream rides where there (sporting bears club) took a ride out in a TVR Sargaris, GF went out in a Tuscan...10 mile run around NEC was excellent and its all for charity!

    What was not excellent was the 1.5 hr traffic jam from the motorway to the NEC car park, total of 2 miles, arrived off junction at 10.30. got to car park 12, total shambles...in the end the police had to get involved as jam was backing up onto the motorway...after complaining i was told more people than expected had turned up, and if i didn't like like don't bother coming (from a vile NEC traffic officer) anyway will make complaint for sure, train next year me thinks....still left smiling and had a great drive home in the E55, managed my best MPG so far 24.5mpg ;)
