Went to the classic and sports car show at the NEC last weekend, anyone else venture there? I thought there were more 911`S this year than last, which was nice to see.

Only problem was it confirmed that I really like the old Merc SL`S I think the old Porsche needs to watch out  :happy07:

Hi Craig

I normally go, but didnt get there this year!

The old SL's are awesome.  I had one some many years ago.  It was a 280 SL.  Great car.  Very thirsty though.

Post some pics of the POrsches you saw over on your Channel P101tv account so we can see them.

Hi Pete, no pics i am afraid, didnt take a camera and the one on my phone played up when i got there. Guess i will just have to go back next year. Wouldnt have thought the SL would be any worse on fuel than the Porsche, if they are god help us.  :happy07:

True.  My 911 isnt too great on fuel when I press the loud pedal.  If Im really on it I get single digit miles per gallon.  But, I have to say, if i run at 60-70mph and keep it steady, I can get 25mpg....  Not too bad for a 3.5l 330 bhp car!
