Following on from the nominations thread here we can now have a vote for the cars to be on the stand. We have space for 5 cars, but you don't have to pick all 5 if you only have one favourite!

Choosing is harder than you think! Mk 1 or Mr 2, Diesel or Petrol, hatch or estate, trim levels... Eeek!

If i'm honest, i used one of my votes to persuade Mr Kitch to finish the GT :D

Personally i'd have liked to see a van/enterprise in there, shame there are so few :(

Oooh, this is horrible! In the interests of fairness, I believe Modstox has modified his TGD slightly from the picture?

I feel really bad for the people I didn't vote for. Especially difficult with several of the same model to vote for. But this is reality, you can't all be winners. It's not some bloody telly show! :p

You're right, and I've edited with a more recent pic from his blog - thanks for pointing that out.

If we put on a fantastic show this year, then hopefully there'll be chances for others 2014 and beyond :D

And don't forget, there are other shows (like Bristol) which these car could be lined up for if the owners wish!

I agree it would be nice to have a commercial variant (or an ambulance for that matter), but there's not exactly much choice when it comes to those!

I actually found it easier than I thought I would :D
perhaps not having a bx at the moment made me more objective , perhaps it was the crisp tenners forced into my hand , who knows

'At least it's better than Timex.' On this occasion Mike, that's not true is it!? :D

No, it missed the deadline. Shame, bit of polish would sort that out something lovely.

I'm just glad the 14 is up there. There's a bit of a stigma over the 14 model around here and I've no idea why, so glad it's out in front :D

I should have nominated the estate really.....it's probably one of the most well-known cars on here :lol:

I also can't believe mine's the only 16v in it :? There wasn't a ph2 last year either, and it's one of the most distinctive versions (certainly provokes more talking from bystanders in shows I've been to) there is. I just thought with the number of decent ph2s on here that there would be a whole heap of them offered up. Maybe people can't make it on that day?
