What to Expect from2007 from Laura (Minxy)
For the second year running AOC has been invited to take part in the All Vauxhall Show and have provided us with a 30 car stand which we're thoroughly looking forward to filling.
If you thought PV sounded good and you've stuck your name down on the camping or hotel thread...or even just to come and attend for the day then Billing is the next step and not to be missed!
Billing Aquadrome is sat right in the middle of Northampton and once a year it sees Vauxhalls of all ages turn up in their numbers. If camping isn't your thing then there is a hotel right on the doorstep of the site but be sure to book your rooms soon or it tends to fill up pretty quickly.
The great thing about the VBOA show is that is so laid-back. Because it stretches over 2 days and most people are camping for the weekend it means there is no rush and no urgency to squeeze as much into one day as physically possible whilst trying not to get sunburnt! It also means not having to get up at stupid 'o' clock in the morning to get where you need to go. The cars are mixed and varied, the VBOA always put on a good show of vintage and ex-racing cars and everyone is welcome whether their cars are standard or modified.
Last year consisted of long lay ins, big cooked breakfasts followed by chilled afternoons and evenings in the funfair or just relaxing with a beer and good company.
I have some fantastic memories of last year and some great photos. Roll on July!
