We only lived 16 miles from Doncaster and I didnt get to that show until 88! The unfulfilled wish - I never got to Belle Vue, the offer was there in 83 but I thought it was all over by then there. I picked this DVD up at Billing last year, only about 20 mins long covers the 79 show, a real insight into the popularity of the 70's custom shows - the que's outside to get in! :shock: Captures well a very different and long gone era ..
I would be interested in seeing that Darren.

Here's the April 80 Northern Drag & Custom Show I mentioned in Harrogate, from Hot Rod & Custom. Think you can spy Highway Patrol behind Warlock.

Also the 1st custom show I went to was this at Donnington in Jan or Feb 79, not a lot of cars on display but I did get to see Bob Welstead's radical Moulin Rouge rod and the Komodo Dragon funny! 8)

I'm sure I went to that show at Donington (or something similar) with the tie in with John Brown Wheels and Long Marston. I'm sure there's a box of slides kicking round somewhere I must try and find. Wasn't it on for a week or something like that. Entry included the museum as well I recall.

I don't remember us going in the museum, but I do remember a big JBW display, I'll have to look out the ad for the show from a late 78 issue ..
Ollie's funny was the first car you came across as you entered which pulls all JBW connection together.

Perhaps this was another follow up show then that I went to. I don't think I've got the show guide anymore which is a bit remiss of me.

It may have been on all week, that seems to ring a bell. I remember it not being very busy at all and we would have been there at the weekend.
