60th Anniversary Type 3 display, Coventry motor museum Sunday 17th October 2021

Post by Danny Lord » 8th September 2021 - 1:54pm

So had 2 attempts this year to put on some sort of Type 3 display to celebrate 60 years and both shows had to be cancelled 😞

Gonna have one last try at it, I have messaged a venue this morning in the Midlands, to see if it's at all possible to gather some cars at their place on a Saturday or Sunday in October or early November, I'm waiting to hear back from them, fingers crossed we can get something together! Add your name below if you could possibly bring your car. I'll update this thread as soon as I have any other info.

*UPDATE* The venue have finally got back to me, I've had to submit a stupid form to the council, the provisional date I have asked for is Sunday the 17th October, the provisional Venue is Millennium place which is outside the Coventry Motor museum. I've literally just submitted the form, so I hope they will be in touch soon, I will update again as soon as I hear anything. So just to clarify at this point its a provisional date and venue, nothing set in stone at this moment in time.

**UPDATE**

All looking good for Type 3 meet, public liability insurance sorted, date and venue is in their diary and that date is free, just have to email them with a risk assessment and then wait for the reply, which will hopefully be in the coming week.

Thanks for the gesture, but no need to help cover costs, this will be a free event, it's only my time and a trip to Coventry today to check out the venue, the ABVWC (association of British VW clubs) has covered the public liability insurance, we do have a magazine (possibly 2) covering the event, for a future issue, Sam Jeffery who is editor for Air Style magazine will be there in his wife's recently restored Squareback. Hopefully Paul Knight will also be there from Volksworld Magazine.

here's the facebook event link....

https://www.facebook.com/events/3996194 ... tory%22%3A[%7B%22mechanism%22%3A%22surface%22%2C%22surface%22%3A%22create_dialog%22%7D]%2C%22ref_notif_type%22%3Anull%7D


and for those not on fb.....

This is a VW Type 3 only display, so if you have a Notchback, Fastback, Variant or Type 34 Karmann ghia, then you are welcome to display your vehicle at Millenium place which is right outside the Coventry Motor museum, there is a car park a couple of minutes from the museum for those not in Type 3 which is £1 all day. this is located in Bishop street, this is a free event, so no charge to display your 'back, however if you want to visit the museum it's £14 for adults, £7 for Juniors and free for 4 and under. we're allowed to display from 10am until 3pm, so if you can arrive from about 9.40am onwards, we will have a couple of parking marshalls to show you where to park, a strict 5 MPH on site as this is a pedestrian area, so no burn outs, donuts etc, my plan is to have one line or so of each, so a line for Notch, a line for Square's etc, but this may not work out on the day. Please, please please, bring some form of drip tray, even if your car doesn't leak oil, we must all have one due to the terms and conditions, so no drip tray no entry! there are toilets in the museum and also some at Pool Meadow Bus station opposite Millenium place, there are plenty of Cafe's pubs etc in Coventry town center, which is not to far to walk to, to get to millenium place set your sat nav for Chauntry Place CV1 1JR this is the access road that takes you to the display area, I think I've covered everything, feel free to message me if there is anything I've forgotten, hopefully see you there! 🙂

I am thinking about doing another next year, would probably do it mid September and cap it to 50-55 cars, would also need a few more marshels/helpers just to keep a eye on the cars parked up as the general public that were passing/visiting the museum, did have a tendancy to touch the cars, which made me very nervous!
