Owners Club Meet "Wings & Wheels" Open day Coventry
Show review by Pete (Crazy Musso):
August 21st saw the first attendance at a show for the Ssangyong Club,
when a few of us attended a "Wings & Wheels" open day at the Midland Air
Museum, Coventry Airport... I am a volunteer there, and also bring along my
motorcycle owners club every year, so this time I invited anyone interested
from our club to come along too... I arrived early on Saturday morning to
set up various displays, before retiring to a local hotel for the night
ready for the big day... Sunday dawned dry and sunny, with the distinct
possibility of a good day ahead. Once I had arrived on site, it wasn't long
before Musso's started to appear within the grounds of the Museum.
We were able to display next
to the resident aircraft, which makes for some interesting photography...
I had a gazebo set up over my
tailgate so that I could run my laptop in the boot showing various Video
clips relating to the club, including Andi's "Wales Meet" video of course!
The arrival of Rob's "Monster Musso"
certainly raised a few eyebrows, as it towers above our UK models... I tried
to enhance the size by getting Rob to drive onto a borrowed car ramp on one
wheel - purely for effect of course! (I pinched the idea from a nearby
Landrover dealer forecourt).
The weather was outstanding, and
we all enjoyed the relaxing surroundings of the Museum. Picnic hampers were
soon out, and easy chairs spread out behind the Musso's.... It was nice to
see a few new faces amongst those attending, and especially good to meet Rob
and his family having travelled the furthest recorded distance ever for a
museum event, as well as our club meets...
This was a first for the club,
but I hope it won't be the last? If the Museum puts on the same kind of
event next year, it would be great to see the visitors expand... We are able
to put on an interesting display without too much effort, and it adds to the
publicity for the club....
So a big thanks to Alan
and Hazel, Gareth and Vicky, Paul, Jill and family, Rob and Family for
making the effort.
