Classic Car Weekly Photo-shoot Request - Thu 08 Feb 18 19:08

MANY THANKS FOR ALL OF THE RESPONSES RECEIVED.

THE REQUEST FOR CARS IS NOW CLOSED.

I have received a request from Classic Car Weekly Magazine that has just published an editorial on the upcoming Nationals event. Any member wishing to offer their Corvette C1, C2 or C3 up for a photo-shoot please contact me on kmills6737 @ yahoo.com with photo of car and location.

Keith Mills

PLEASE READ EMAIL BELOW

Thanks for letting us know about the plans for CCCUK’s celebration for the 65th birthday at the Nationals event – the news has been covered in today’s issue of CCW

I was hoping though that you might be able to help me out with a feature I’m aiming to put together, again celebrating the anniversary and again plugging the Nationals event

I’m aiming to either get C1 versions of the six-pot and V8 to compare the pair OR an example from the first 3 generations of Corvette together, again to compare them

Does one option strike you as being more straight forward than the other?

Either way, I was hoping you’d approach CCCUK members’ on my behalf to see if they’d be interested in putting their cars forward for the feature, to be professionally photographed and featured in Classic Car Weekly

We’re based in Peterborough but are happy to travel – the key would be to have the owners all within striking distance of one another so we can pick a venue for the pro shoot close to them.

CCCUK NATIONALS - 2nd/3rd/4th JUNE 2017 - Wed 25 Jan 17 23:44

To be held at the Sharnbrook Hotel near Bedford

Image

For 2017 our annual get together has had a complete make over thanks to our new Nationals Organiser, long standing Club Member Mike Lacey.

For those that want to enjoy the whole new experience this is a three day event, starting on the Friday afternoon with an organised cruise to an American diner.

On Saturday morning there will be a second cruise to the Old Warden Aerodrome to see their collection of vintage cars and planes. Lunch can be taken in the café, after which a run back to the hotel for -

the Corvette Club AGM - at which your presence will be expected!

On the Saturday evening a Gala Dinner is arranged with entertainment and a free welcome drink. Cost is £25 per head with the choice of a three course menu and tea/coffee to finish

We hope everyone will come along to this - a great opportunity to catch up with old friends.

Sunday is the main show and shine day when we will be joined by many more club members who come for the day. There will be a total of 17 trophies up for grabs, and for those who get peckish a hog roast will be available with the hotel bar remaining open all day for refreshments.

Rooms are available in the hotel for Friday and Saturday nights at the cost of £75 (£85 deluxe) per night for a double with breakfast.

These are selling out fast, so if you want to book in please phone the hotel on 01234 783 142 to make the reservation.

It's MEMBERS ONLY so have your membership number to hand - they will make a note of this.

We hope to see as many of you as possible over the weekend, so even if you can't stay over please make a note in your diary for either the Saturday or Sunday - EVERYONE WELCOME
