A very warm welcome to our September 2016 Newsletter. Yes I know it's not September just yet but Sue and I need to start preparing for the 'Belgium Figaro Rally' and she has T-Shirts to iron and I have a car to get ready (it's a tough life for us men)!  This edition includes links to our Calendar Competition, Local Chapter Update, Members Cars, Club Offers, Events, Owners Support and more...

Local Chapter initiative gets off to a flying start    
The club is delighted to announce all but one Chapter 'Northern Ireland' in the UK has been filled by our Club Members (Volunteers). Over the next month you will be contacted from each of them to introduce themselves as a 'point of contact' regarding future local meets and events. It's still early days but we are hoping this initiative will help us deliver more events for members to attend across the whole of the UK and World during 2017. The 'rest-of-the-world' just requires 'Belgium' to complete the world chapters.  Read more 
 
STOP PRESS - Figaro Shop 'Open Day' April 2017 
We have been invited to attend this rather special event which is taking place at their Didcot premises next April (exact date to be agreed). The day will include a comprehensive tour of the workshops and a number of interesting talks on the Figaro and lunch. Part of the day will also include a Figaro Rally around the Oxfordshire countryside. Watch out for more details on how you can register to attend this exclusive event in the next few months.

How is all began (in the UK)  
A few months ago we were sent this clipping from Member Brigitte Caro in Holland.  Brigitte found an old Classic and Sportscar Magazine from 2001.

That's 15 years ago, in it there is an advert for a Nissan Figaro from Figaro Cars. Strangely it stated; "Due to changes in the registration rules the Figaro will not be imported after 2001. Hurry before the classic becomes a cult"  Hmmmm????


Nissan Figaro Wall Calendar 2017  
Our 7th Nissan Figaro Wall Calendar is due to be published in December and like all the previous versions will include Members Cars from around the World. So now is the time to dig out those special pictures or pack your camera and go take some! With 12 Months to fill we are urgently seeking pictures...  Submit your Pictures   
   
WANTED! High Quality 'Lapis Grey' & 'Emerald Green' Figs to Exhibit at the NEC Classic Motor Show 2016 
To celebrate our cars 25th Birthday the club will be making a 'big splash' at the above show during the 11th - 13th November 2016. We have taken a large stand that can accommodate up to 4 x Figs and we are still looking for 1 x Emerald Green and 1 x Lapis Grey Figaro in very good condition to line up so we can display each colour. If you can help please email me at sales@figaroownersclub.com  
 
Next Month will be the publication of October 2016 Figgyworld so keep an eye out for the link.

Go steady and I'll catch you next month :)

ABOUT THE CLUB 

Our Mission Statement
"To provide comprehensive advice and information to both present and future owners (in addition to having lots of fun in the process) and to ensure these wonderful cars and their providence is preserved for the next generation of owners"

How the club started

My son 'Daniel' had always wanted a Figaro having seen the car at our local garage when he was just 16. After saving for a number of years (plus a small contribution from his mum and dad!) he brought an emerald green model in June 2008.

Following the purchase we searched on the internet for a club in the hope we could attend events with other owners but were amazed that no club existed... So the Figaro Owners Club was born!  We decided to build a website and forum which took 6 months and on the 1st March 2009 we pressed the 'publish button' and waited to see if anyone wanted to join? Within a week we had 10 members, a month 35 and a year 478 members.


Today the club has around 1,600 members worldwide in countries such as New Zealand, Japan, Australia, USA, Canada, Germany, Spain, France, Belgium, Luxembourg, Sweden and many more countries...

Thanks to all our supporters and members for their help and encouragement throughout our journey.

Warmest Regards
