And here's some of the meet pics - Trinity Buoy Wharf did us proud and so did the Fat Boys American Diner

Thanks to all who came along

Great photos

The S8 is certainly the best looking car there I reckon, with the Quattro a close second.

So what's the story Stephen? How did it come about that you were invited to exhibit your car?

I can probably help there - I was approached by the guy who runs Audi's Classic UK Fleet and asked to help. he was already supplying the UR quattro and said he would try to help with the S8 D2. I initially supplied 3 likely suspects - Ricky D and HP Sauce who both had Ronin-ish coloured and eminently presentable D2's and both lived within a radius of Excel Exhibition Centre plus TinTin who has previously supplied his car to the Audi Owners Club Stand at the NEC Classic Car Show in Birmingham. They had pictures of each car and finally settled on Stephen's Car (possibly with Andrew's as a back up - but that's another story)

Wot he said

In fact....I'm going to suggest that Neil changes his forum name "Architex_mA8tey" to "Icanprobablyhelp_MA8tey", as that's more apt. This place wouldn't be the same without him...

Always nice to see a flotilla of Eights no matter the reason.
TinTin's Herman did look embarassingly clean and shiny.

That's a great souvenir to have, and despite my earlier cheeky comments the car looked great, think the lighting made it look even shinier
