Has anyone got a discount code for tickets. Neither of the car clubs I'm with are attending so no codes.

If anyone is willing to share openly or PM me one that would be greatly appreciated.

I'll be going but the code only gets a quid or so off so it's no biggie

 

Especially when a sandwich costs £100 and a pint is £250

 

I got in a mood last year as cars were selling for astronomical amounts - so I'll be avoiding the auction area this year just to keep my spirits up.  Last year I felt poor !

I met 17_Coffees and Supernaut last year; it was a good day out. I think we saw dollywobbler too.

 

I don't think 17_Coffees and Supernaut are making the same pilgrimmage this year. I may go, but it won't be a quieter trade day obviously.

Probably be there on Friday, it's a bit quieter and doesn't mess my weekend up. If anyone is there and heading south towards Stanky then I have a FIAT 500 engine in need of shitlying in his direction if possible.

Found the code CSCMS15 from a 2015 forum post but it didn't work. However CSCMS17 seems to work and gave 2 quid off a ticket...

Not sure which club discount it's for though!

Anyone know of stands worth viewing or taking a look at as a priority?

Hard to say. I find the entire show rather joyous. It's tricky to get round it all in a day. Mind you, that's probably because I spend so much time chatting to folk...

Too expensive, too crowded, too manic, appalling lighting. I like the autojumble but haven't been able to spend any time there for three years on the trot. 

 

I'd rather be in my garage making the Subaru work.
