    Thought I would start the thread before I head out for the day so I can try and upload pictures as I go :)

    Confession time, I don't do this very often but for obvious reasons yesterday had little choice... Funnily enough the place was full of BMW convertibles at the time. The 330 in front, and a 640 that had just left. The chap cleaning the cars was really impressed with Rosie though.

    How does that song go? "All by my self, don't want to be all by my self..." :)

    I've uploaded some more pictures to the media gallery here - https://zroadster.org/media/categories/2014-bmwccgb-gaydon.42/

    Was great meeting up with you all, and even got to catch up with @NeRo as well. Very handy having the Zorg welcome cards with me and already had new members sign up from them.

    @gookah while you were off enjoying the show someone who noticed the family number plates on the cars thought it was great! Lots of nice comments about your collection of Z3's & Ben's E36 Coupe certainly was well received by the passers by. Has to be said, I was really taken with it too... Can you let me have some details on your wheels - make & size? Someone has seen a picture I posted on Facebook and wanted to know more about them ;)

    Nice shiny cars everyone, as ever poor Rosie was put to shame!

    The look on @GazHyde 's face when I knocked on his window-PMSL - was good to catch up with you

    @siwilson I saw the car, but didn't see you

    I've got to get my photos sorted out and uploaded

    Dang, I wish I had known you were there Neil. I would have made a point to find you and say hello. i would normally have spotted your Z a mile away, but didn't on Sunday.
