I went on my own on Saturday. We usually go everywhere together as a family but MrsJim and JimJr weren't keen and.....I have to admit that cost saving aside it meant I could leisurely browse the show, linger and move entirely to suit myself and consequently, enjoyed myself immensely. It's maybe six or seven years since I last went and was a bit underwhelmed so it was all good.
I saw Simon chatting to some guys on the AROC stand so just tapped his shoulder to say hello. I doubt he recognised me, however.
My car of the show- the one I most wanted- happened to be "just" a replica of the 73 Targa Florio Porsche 911 rally mule in silver with beautifully painted on Martini stripes. It was stunning and sat on the Swisswax stand.
Nostalgia isn't what it used to be.
