21/03/10 - 2010 National Indoor Show
So were you there??
A lovely, but long, trip to Stafford for the TOR Indoor 4x4 show. It was nice to have a totally indoor show even though the weather was warmer this year. Although the venue was slightly larger it seemed to be a lot emptier of visitors although there was a very long queue at the door for the "Pay on Entry" visitors and an equally long queue for the only catering establishment on the premises!, it was quite a long drive for what was a strongly Landrover orientated set of stalls.
It was really good to meet up with some of the faces from the Suzuki off-roading world, Gary (funkyjimny), Dave Jones (Bits4Vits), Richie(Shropshire Suzuki), Jamie (from Tong), Ezz must have been there somewhere as his car was on display. More Jimnys in the car-park than on display in the event.
As you can see in the pictures below there was some space in the crowds.
Still, Dave from Bits4Vits was entertaining a few customers on his stand.
Over on the Off-Road Armory stand, James was showing off his smart blue Jimny (and yes, my son did point out what a lovely interior it has, a lovely gearbox action and a smooth clutch and no, I didn't let him buy it!!)
I even got Jamie to pose - but he was still a victim of my sales technique ;)
Ezz's Jimny features in the modified car display.
Under the bonnet lurks its V6 engine.
And perhaps the least recognisable Jimny at the show was this "Smart" Jimny.
And a little Suzuki to drool over.
Whilst a few more lurked in the car park - are any of these yours!
