For the very brief period I was there, it looked to be a good show, lots and lots of eye candy. MEV pitch was great, loads of cars and tr1kes turned up. We had to head off with other engagements, glad I came down, only wish my caravan was finished, would have loved to have camped. Nevermind, see you all at Donington in August.
Had nose at the rockets today all very nice and met huggy, good to meet a fellow builder although he's way ahead of me! Took a pocket full of cash but apart from some rivnuts, gloves and drill bits I didn't really spend a great deal. Saw a nice 320mm wheel for £50 but when I went back it had sold. Had a moan to rd about uprights but didn't really get what you would call a positive response! When i also queried about product from omp they said, and I quote 'problem with omp is that they are slow and always seem to be on holiday'!
Had a drive past the general direction on sat & today (to and from my grandmothers 85th with the rest of the family). Saw a lot of Caterhams, tigers and some other 7 types, plus a couple of buggies. At first was disappointed not to spot an MEV but am now liking the relative rarity of them as much as their modern styling.

I am so glad I didn't go down the westfield/seven route, soooo common. I agree with you on the 917, I have an rc model of this and the thought of owning a full size replica makes me quiver with excitement.
Went today for a couple of hours, was cool to see but only a few mev cars left by the time I go there. Did manage to buy a throttle body kit from danST on the way out as an impulse buy! Few questions on it, pm on the way airforceone!
Was tempted by the Dax Cobra replica, but really want to do a Mevabusa too...I guess we'll see!
Want to get the car on a track so on the lookout for the next local track meet/anyone in or near London want to organise a track meet or is there one going on?
What a fantastic show, we had a great time, brilliant to see so many MOGGERS enjoying their creations too. A decent turn out of MEV's was a real attraction to those considering a kit. The party night was a little extreme but I did recover by lunch time the next day. Many thanks to Jason for bringing his wonderful movie prop. Even more pics of MEVs were taken than normal as we placed it in front of our cars!
The Dalek was great, my kids loved it. I had a good chat with Bob (I think he goes under carbonbob on here) who was very helpful to me and another rocket builder Mikey. The show certainly gave me another push to get the rocket finished.
Well arrived early on Sun drove up camped and left fairly early on Sun to go to another event had a ball met a lot of old friends and made a few new ones what a friendly crowd the MEV group are. Thanks to every one cant remember all the names (age is my excuse lol)some stunning cars putting mine to shame but regardless I stillget out with a smile on my face lol see you all soon and hope to see a some old friends and a few new faces at castle coombe and Donnington thanks Bob
If it was easy every one would do it now its done its lots of fun LOL
