A Nissan R32 GTR that's never seen a road in it's life. It was very nice, but it's a totally different category to Karl's daily driver.

Looks shite compared to Karl's Elgrand. Even though it is an E50 I'd rather have that any day. :)

I think Karl's Elgrand looks great and chuffed he got runned up but sorry I disagree, I'd take that.




(Might sell it and buy a nicer E51 though ;))

I think I'm getting old @blingo :laughing: but I don't see the point in a car like that unless you can afford to just keep it in the garage.

You're right about selling it to buy an E51 though ;):)

How much do you reckon it's worth?

No I don't see any point of a car like that either! If I had it, it wouldn't stay like that - would get driven / crashed or sold.

If I lived in some fantasy world where practicality didn't matter and I had to choose a car from the show and shine entrants, I'd be sitting in the datsun 1600 roadster that was there!

How much? No idea. Lot more than an E50 though, no matter how nice it is.

Surprise surprise... It wouldn't look like that if it was driven anywhere, yet Karl has kept his in such good condition that it did compete with it! So close!
Yeah, he did really well - there were some seriously nice / pampered cars there.

Thanks all for showing your love and support. Here are some snaps from the Show and Shine hall. I'll be putting up a whole load of pictures when I get a chance to sit down and sort through them all :D

Cheers @Claptrap. I can finally spend the evenings giving @Pippa some much needed attention rather than polishing the van every night and then being knackered all the time :joy:
