Welcome to the XR4Register website
The XR4Register at the Ford Enth Show 13th November 2005
Set Up Day (Sat 12th Nov)
Ford Enthusiast Show: with no theming this year, we managed to use the
flooring in order to make our allocated 2 car spaces more appealing. We decided that Gengis's and Jaffa's cars were going to be the
stars of the show so to speak , a standard 4x4 against a modified 4be.
Having got there, Neil (Show Organiser) asked us if we could help fill empty
spaces as a few clubs were not attending. We obliged and a re - shuffle of
the stand was in order!. Bhav's & Paul's cars were used as templates for the flooring to work around and we used Alan's XR4i for yet another show
appearance and so was already in place. We got the stand ready and waiting
for Gengis & Jaffa to roll in with their sparkling motors to show off to the public on Sunday.
For once Alan, Paul, Bhav & Caz were all out of Donington Park before they closed the gates, thank you guys for your help and the stand looked the Biz.
Well, it was a bright but bitter day so it made a change for us not to be
theming, which usually consists of us wearing something silly, getting
strange looks & comments from everyone whilst walking around the show
freezing cold. If next season the theme is not related to Summer again then
we will be back in 4orce!
As we were putting the finishing touches to our stand on Sunday, we were
once again asked by Neil if could fill some more space as yet another club
had let him down!. Alan looked like Garfield with a big Grin as he went to
fetch his GT and we also managed to get Matt in with his silver XR4i. They
were both driven in from the car park looking a tad dirty but a quick spit
and polish later with everyone lending a hand they were on show for the
The show had a slow start but became busy as the morning progressed and as
usual it was quieter in the afternoon. A good variety of Auto Jumblers
outside but indoors there was a few stands selling 'tat' and 'tack' though.
All in all, still a good show to visit and pick up bargains or freebies as
Dave 3.7 was already on the PE stand drooling over his PE t-shirt which he
Our stand was busy and hectic throughout the day. There was lots of people
with lots of enquiries much to Caz's dismay as she was getting called away
from the bar and her drink!. Visitors included Fitz aka 'Top Boss', Chris
from Power Engineering and lots of faces from the past including, the nice
folks from the newly formed Blue Oval Club.
It was good to see 'Yam Yam' up and running and eyeing up another 4i for
next season perhaps. All in all a good turnout from the XR4 Register crew
including Norman, Pikey, David A, Ross L, Pete & Lisa, James & Jo & the Carter Brothers aka Mike & Matt.
By the end of the day it was too much for 'Jaffa' as he was slowly turning
to the 'Bling Side', not being able to cope with a standard looking engine
bay. He kept coming back with more shiney chrome fixtures & fittings.
Well its officially the last show of Season 2005, many thanks for your help and support and look forward to yet more fun and games in Season 2006.
