There has been considerable hype building up to the launch of Show & Glow, firstly as the show is making its debut and secondly it is the final UK show of the season. Expectations were high – the atmosphere queuing up to get in was that of excitement. Held at Bluewater shopping centre in Kent, this was the last place you’d imagine going to a car show, but it actually worked surprisingly well.
I thought I’d start off by highlighting this fine example of an S8, this sums up the quality of vehicles on display.
The Players wrapped Mk1 looking as good as ever.
How about a bit of supercharged goodness with this R32.
‘that 635’ that we all know and love. Yes, it was essentially a VAG show, but I don’t think anyone will complain about seeing this inside.
…along with this E30
James’ Mk1 Polo rocking some new shoes this time.
I don’t think I will ever tire of seeing this Audi 80.
This white Rallye was such a tidy example.
One of my favourites back from the Westside Show.
To most this will be considered Mk1 perfection. What do you think?
What a treat it was to see a Porsche Speedster!
In addition to two indoor floors, Show & Glow also had the top level of the outdoor car park for even more cars – let’s take a look…
This was awesome – a bagged VW Tiguan on Ferrari wheels. It’s nice to see something different and this really works!
Ben Anson’s newly wrapped E21 is always a stunner.
Another car spotted back at Westside VW, this E30 now on a fresh set of wheels.
I shot this Mini back at Edition38, it’s nice to see the Brock’s rocking a new colour. The fitment on this is just right!
Staggered Z3 wheels looking good on this E46.
Well there you have it folks. Show season is over! Congratulations to the Show & Glow team for such a successful debut, there’s no doubt in my mind that this is going to continue to grow and probably become one of the bigger shows of the year.
