There were some nice cars there, the cortina, original mini and 205 cti were all very tidy but the Clio looked very good.

Thanks they look fantastic loving the beetle, but i have to ask do some of these cars arrive in sealed trailer to the event and do they enter in different classes , as seen a few shows that cars and better prepped than new , but are they used ? as seems a waste , have to add seen the Cortina in the Flesh and aware Jim Drive's it to all the shows and the car is amazing. Thanks for sharing

I had a quick chat with the owners of the black beetle,what a special machine that was and it had just come back from a german car show a mere 1000 mile round trip.

Every car is beautifully kept and leaves my car alot to be desired :-/

However if I could get mine to anywhere near that standard I would be a very happy man!!

Great pictures too

Looks like some hugely impressive cars and some stunning results from the pictures above. My only thought is and I often think this at many shows that I have gone to, is that there should be two categories for show and shines. Show cars and daily drivers. Anyone who drives there car on a daily basis can't compete on a level playing field with anyone who can place mirrors under there cars to show how clean the underside is. I think sometimes it's more impressive to have a well prepared and presented daily driver over a "garage queen"

Apologies if I am making some assumptions over some of the cars featured above and if I had to choose a winner.... I would of choose the Mini with the mirrors underneath! Stunning car and I have a total soft spot for minis :thumb:

I am off to polish my floor pan ;)

Had a good time at the show and very pleased to come third ,driven cars 220 miles to get there in heavy rain will never compete with cars that come in boxes ,but congratulations to Mandi for winning

Lots of stunning motors, Great pics there...:thumb:

Slightly confused with title at first though was it was the show and shine cars outside.

Rather than the Detailing world Car showdown....:D

Again stunning motors on show for judging.

All of them look stunning, the Bettles wheels and colour look very sharp in the pictures, plus the Celica GT has a nice glow to the paint and wheels.

The White Mini looks stunning as well along with the Green Focus RS from the first picture.

Who owns the Celica GT, would love to know which polish has been used on the alloys, as my car has the same exact paint finish.

I was very lucky to be asked to clean it for the owner.

It had two coats of Gtechniq C1.5 topped of with a layer of Crystal Wax, the paint work was two layers of just Crystal Wax :thumb:
