Same here on both counts, sadly I'm working this year so can't go at all, but a couple of years ago because we were there for two day, me and a mate spent one day in the autojumble/parts bit and the next day in looking at the cars.

Last year because I was exhibiting I got loads of time to look at everything. Probably the best experience of the show I've ever had apart from going with my Dad in the 80's & 90'S

Hope someone gets some decent photos of Rahails stand.

Cheers,

JK

If anyone going could take some photos of the MZR cars and share them here that be really cool. I've seen various pictures through Instagram and the cars have a really nice restomod vibe about them.

I'd be really curious to see some close ups of the door mirrors they've fitted to the window frames, they look like just what I'm after. Will have to make some inquiries with MZR myself.

Shame I'm away for the weekend and will miss this one again.

Will see the MZR stand for sure - it's on the list - and will try and have a chat and find out more ...

Everytime I go to the Mustang Owners Club stand they seem to have more or less the same cars on ... and even I am sick of that bladdy Bullitt car chase (we had it on a loop the year I did it)!

Nice - VIN?

Makes my blue car look cheap!

I do like the colour, battery in rear I suppose.

It wont look the same with wiring etc.

Are those the mirrors then Woody? If they are, I'll ask more about them if I get a chance ...

You're getting old and like older men, you need a flashy (fair) lady to help get it up

The colour is class - discretion speaks louder !

I've always loved the clean look. It looks even better before you add all the rest of the required bits. What other cars do they have on display? Still considering going but there needs to be more than just one car.

There is another more complete blue car on the stand.
Didn't get a chance to take a photo as there where to many people stood around
It at the time.
Both cars where getting a lot of interest which on the face of it was looking is good for MZR
How many will part with £80k+ I am not sure

Someone's nicked the MC off the blue car! Looks a quality job for sure. Looking forward to seeing it in the flesh so to speak.

The cars looked absolutely stunning. I had a chat with Rahail and when you hear how much work goes into each one and how many bespoke parts they have developed you can see where the sales price comes from.

The lad has put huge amounts of time and money into his company, he loves his Zs and I really hope it works for him, he deserves it. Then again, I deserve one if his cars, but short of a lottery win, it won't be happening!

Nice looking cars build wise. Not keen on the wheels and lack of profile of the tyre, doesn't look as classy. However its subjective and easy to change.

Nice to see there's someone in the UK making decent 240's at last.
