    Car Shows

    These car shows sure dont come cheap do they

    For me an average breakdown of costs would roughly be

    Car Cleaning Gear £25
    Tickets average about £12
    Petrol £25
    Spending Cash £40

    Total £102

    How much does everyone else roughly spend for one show?

    Me too, I didn`t buy any new cleaning stuff for tomorrow.

    We`re bringing a stove, for bacon sarnies and tea

    The cool box is full

    I had 1/2 tank of petrol, the other half was £25.

    But as for spending money, whatever ................................... to be honest, dont think I really need anything

    I'm with Martin and Pete here, already have the car cleaning gear and it lasts me about a year so can do all the shows on say £40?

    So entrance fee, a little bit of petrol and probably some dodgy burger at the show will be my money for the day.

    Really should spend anything else as i've done enough on my car this month :shock:

    You guys are sooooo luckyyyyyy


    Most shows are still England based.
    If we want to be seen we have to pay a fortune in petrol, and invest a lot of travelling time just to get to the shows.

    So how about we make a deal...... We still attend shows as we do.....


    ..... but a LOT of you guys travel north, at least to Edinburgh for next years Fast Car Full On Show. IT would be great.....
