interesting, what didn't you like about E38?  Although to be honest, all the "I love paint" cars don't really interest me either, I just go for the social side, camping, having a laugh etc... Although I did spend a large part of the last e38 half dead in my tent after overdoing it somewhat on friday night.

BVF is more about the having a laugh side than it is even a car show really!

yeah those fancy paint cars and diamonds in wheels bore the hell of out me too.  To be honest, the actual E38 show during the day is just something to stumble around while you sort your hangover out before the session starts again.  For me anyway.... But there are always some damn cool cars hidden in between all the paint-mobiles too.  Honda fireblade engined, RWD Derbys and such like :)

Ha ha you were in a right state when we turned up last year Paul!

It is a shame BVF is the same weekend as I'd like to go to the Retro show, looks like lots of cool stuff goes but BVF rocks. One of my favourite shows.
