I'm going for the first time in a few years as I start to amass stuff for my next project. Always a good day out as were all a bit stir crazy after the christmas 'festivities' and theres nothing better to get you back on track than walking round a drafty cold hall on a january sunday to kick some tyres...... :lol:

Pretty much. I usually turn up after 1400 and get half price entrance.

They normally raffle the mini at 4 o'clock, then there is a mad rush to the exit

Dire. Spent an hour looking round and left. £24 down the drain. It's all just traders stands. Less than 50 minis at a push

I saw a few minis around Stafford on my way home from swimming, I was in my snot green Morris Minor. Blue clubby estate with yellow arches I think?

Have to agree it’s just traders. Handy to see a few bits in the flesh so to speak to see what sort of quality they are. I was done after an hour and half with my net spend being a quid on a packet of washers!.......and they were for my gate!

I think I'm gonna be the odd one out here but i liked it.

saying that my journey was 180 miles (round trip) of nice curvy roads so I enjoyed the driving.

However I like the traders and auto jumbles more than a room full of show cars as I just walked around the car park to look at the minis and enjoyed looking for the odd bits I needed.

Forgot to mention. Well done to the two numpties who were doing donuts in there 4x4s on the grass. Damaged the grass area something chronic. Im sure the organisers are delighted with their efforts.
