Back to '89 or B289 started back in 2001 with Stu Betty, Michael Leche, Alex Markille and Simon Tomlin. The first 89 display was at Bug Jam that year with 25 legendary cars taking you back in time.

Since then, 20 years have passed with me continuing from the first display with many cars found and bought into the Back to '89 displays. The ethos being that the car needs to be well known on the show circuit from the 80s to the mid 2000’s.

Highlights in those two decades has been the EBI B289 display, sponsoring and making the California Prado 80's Back to 89 trophy given out at the end of the weekend. Multiple magazine features, TV and radio interviews has helped spread the word. Including the Volksworld Vaults with 2 years of features.

Merchandise had always been at the heart of B289, from the original designs in the 00s, the Gary Constable airbrushed design and now the Peter Cronin new designs launched last summer for a limited time.

I am really delighted to announce some very exciting news over the next few weeks.

Lee Southerton aka Mr Magic of Volksmagic will be Back to '89s only distributor of B289 merchandise. I would like to thank Lee for working with me. I would also like to thank Kelly from Dub Prints who is looking after all our printing needs.

I wish Lee and the Volksmagic family the very best in this venture with Back to '89.

Stu wants to thank all the car owners who have displayed their cars over the years and the 4,000 supporters on Facebook and many more beyond.

Grabbed a nice new hat whilst picking up some dub parts. Nice and warm and loads of colours to match your dub. Decent price so had two of them!
