What Can I Say

Vipers

203 views

Hi All,

 

Well, for once I really don’t know what to say other than a huge thanks to everyone involved who helped make our first Boys Toys Event something very special indeed, it certainly looks like the big man above is obviously car and HiFi fan as he really did lay on glorious weather which really helped make the day something quite special.

 

Now for the Oscar speech :-) Firstly I’d like to thank everyone at PMC Speakers who really did got the extra mile on this one, without them this would never have happened, they really did put in a tonne of work that I really do appreciate, also to Ross who was a star trapped at the BBQ cooking breakfast all morning, well until all the food had gone, it was certainly a hungry crowd :-) thanks also to Matt from Lotus Silverstone from taking time out of running a busy showroom to bring along a Lotus Evora which certainly got a lot if interest and to Stephen ‘hilly’ Hill for bringing along a selection of his great and unique motor inspired art, but most importantly I’d like to thank everyone who came along and supported the event and really did make the day an amazing success that really did far surpass any thoughts I had regarding how many would come, 5 acres was almost not enough :-) This started as a small idea a couple of years ago that I had so it really was pretty awesome to see it all come to fruition with so many people and cars attend and with the sun beating down all day in PMC’s beautiful grounds, well I don’t think I could have wished for more but it was only a success thanks to all the Petrolheads and Music Lovers that came, so thanks again to everyone :-) I have to say that I think HiFi Lounge has the best customers out there :-)

 

I have been waiting years to hear PMC’s awesome active MB2 XBD-A’s but I ended up spending all day outside talking cars + hifi whilst enjoying the glorious weather, there were most definitely worse places to be that’s for sure, I did try once to get in but people were spilling out the door, so I am still waiting to hear these speakers but everyone I spoke to really did seem blown away by them, especially with the Vertere Turntable running through them, it really does sound as if I missed something quite special there, maybe we’ll have to arrange another PMC open day without the cars next time :-)

 

Below are a few of the pictures from the day, all cars I’m afraid, there really was a great selection of different marques on show, there were a few very nice camera’s floating around so hopefully I will be able to post some better one than what my phone produced later in the week, actually if you have got any nice pictures can you please send to [email][email protected] and I’ll create an album on Photobucket, thanks.

 

So again, a huge thanks to everyone who made our first Boys Toys event such a success, I was asked several times if this will be a yearly event, I have to say that it would be hard to top this one to be honest but it was mentioned that maybe a live band next year would be a good idea, definitely food for thought :-)

 

[b]We started off with just 3 cars[/b]

[b]But that soon grew to 50+ cars at HFL, we just about got away with squeezing them all in :-)[/b]

Thanks again everyone :-)
