Fig10 was on the 16th May 2010, at the Heritage Motor Centre near Warwick. 170 Figaros, 4 PAOs, 2 S-Cargos and 2 Viewts attended the second Figaro Register Event at the Heritage Motor Centre on 16th May 2010.


The gloomy weather predicted failed to materialise and owners enjoyed a full day of Figaro fun. The condition of the cars on display was as one visitor put it “amazing”. There were some great paint jobs which were show favourites (see winners below). Over a quarter of the cars now have non-factory colours with variations in pink being the most popular. Customising to the interiors was carried out with great taste but still maintaining the retro theme.


Highlight of the morning was the draw for the special prize of a new roof fitting which was won by an excited Sue from Crawley. Following this Laura ran an experimental Regional Gatherings, on foot, which seemed to work very well with owners reporting back that they met people from their areas for the first time and had swapped details for future meets.









Figaros on display adjacent to The Figaro Register HQ were the Boden Figaro owned by Jenny from Liverpool which won Car of the Show; Madeline's Pink Figaro and trailer which was the Fig08 Car of the Show; the earliest and latest Register Figaros owned by Ruth from Swindon and Linda from Enfield: the Figaro that had travelled farthest to get to the event owned by Martin from Holland. The runner up Figaros for Car of the Show were owned by Carolyn from Upton on Seven, Tina & Stuart from Cheltenham and Nic & Alison from Wimbledon . The Non Figaro Car of the Show went to the Viewt owned by David from Stockport .


Sixty cars signed up for the afternoon driving tour which was a roof down affair (more actually went). Drivers reported back that “it was a beautiful route held in a gloriously sunny Warwickshire”. A novel feature enjoyed by all was meeting half of the Figaros, S-Cargos and PAOs going in the opposite direction especially as it is rare in normal driving to see another one at all.


Those not on the driving tour continued looking around the cars in the arena, the Figaro Businesses and the Heritage Centre Museum. Four owners had new roofs fitted by Jason from figaros4sale and others watched to see how it was done whilst the organisers sorted out the prize winners entries and continued selling raffle tickets, Register Stickers, Posters and Figaro Cakes.


A number of Figaro Fans and prospective buyers also attended and two went home with Figaros bought on the day.


We have received some great feedback which sums up the whole day.


"Thank you again David & Laura for years of hard work. The weather held, there were smiles everywhere... and cake! hurrah for the cake! "

"Huge thanks for organising this (& others who helped, traders who came along), it was a splendid day. The driving tour was also a beautiful route held in a gloriously sunny Warwickshire".

"Thanks to you and your gang for arranging such a brilliant Fig10 - what a fabulous day".

"The 'follow the people in you area' was an excellent idea and Ruth and I met two more Figaro owners from close by and will be contacting them in future". Read more feedback


Our thanks to all our friends and family who gave up their Sundays to help us with the show and raise a terrific £700 for the Macgregor Ward Trust Fund. The Ward is a 18 bedded acute paediatric unit, always very busy. Most sick children have a resident parent or relative, and the ward provides a chair bed for their use beside each patient bed. The current beds urgently need replacing. Money raised goes into the Macgregor Ward Trust Fund c/o Chris McGuire, Macgregor Ward, Warwick Hospital , Lakin Rd. Warwick cv34 5bw. Chris will be very grateful for any help from the Figaro Register.


This amount was mainly achieved thanks to the generosity of the Figaro Businesses who attended. They were:- figaros4sale, Clarion Service, Sands Imaging, Figaro Club, The Figaro Owners Club, Figaro City, Figgy Pudding, Figaro Restore and Figaro Car Imports.
