Cars of the Month for 2011

by zacmarshall » Mon Nov 07, 2011 12:59 pm

This is Mark Maniatt's Interceptor III.

Mark is also known as Pie Man and is the man resposible for starting one of the longest running threads on the forum - Unwanted Heat.

Mark's car will be on the JOC stand at the Classic Car Show at the NEC this weekend (11th - 13th November).

There he is my partner in crime with his better half.

Taking a mug of tea after all that polishing :wink:

And all them that go to the NEC will have a treat as it will be there in the flesh.

Some photos from the NEC at the weekend.

Mark and Denise were excellent ambassadors for the club, speaking to lots of interested people and inviting people to sit in the car. It also made their weekend to have some very interesting visitors to the stand.

Unfortunatley Mark had gone walkabout when the son and grandson of the original owner spotted their old car on the stand. This is them next to the car.

You've found me out Joe :lol: Just think the wider spacing looks a treat.Just my opinion.
Denise and I had a ball down at the NEC Classic Car Show.Loads of positive Jensen comments from interested members of the public.One chap enthused,"Yours is the most beautiful car in the show"!!!And if that was'nt confirmation in itself,his guide dog agreed :roll:

Thanks to Thelma and Ron Smith for a job well done,yet again.Try organising one of these events and you will realise just what an effort it really is.

A grand job by the best car club in the business,
