“Harrys Garage” Competition with Footman James

At Footman James we are currently running a competition for one individual to win the chance to feature their car in an episode of Harry Metcalfe’s YouTube Channel: ‘Harry’s Garage’, as well as a full detail on their pride and joy beforehand, courtesy of Meguiar’s.

To be in with a chance of winning, all entrants must do is explain why their car or bike should be the star of an episode. It’s that simple!

The competition will close at the Footman James Manchester Classic Car Show (16th/17th September).

You can find out further information and apply here.

Site update

I have recently moved so was without internet at home for a while, but I now broadband again so the site updates should become more frequent (and I can catch up with the backlog of gallery pictures that need to be uploaded)

I have added SSL certificates to the site, for those who don’t know what that is, it means that the site is now encrypted during transfer and any forms that you complete can not be intercepted easily by hackers. Hopefully this will give everyone more confidence in this day and age where nothing seems to be safe anymore.

There is a chance that some old posts will throw up a mixed security error or even be un-encrypted. This is nothing to worry about as some links and images are not hosted on our site and are coming across unencrypted channels and some of the posts are hard coded on the website to come via standard channels. I’m working my way through the site to remove these issues but all pages with forms on are now secure.

If you notice any errors then please let me know by either filling out the contact us form or mailing me direct on steve@blackcountryclassiccarclub.co.uk
