Spotted - Classic Cars At Shows - Not On The Road
The bandwich limit is really an weird surprise. but now I have an entire new account to spent :)
Fresh catch from last Lisbon's RWD meeting (last Thursday)...
an BM02 with to much moods...
I am sorting through Photos as we are moving and ironically the Espirit belonged to a guy who helped us with our last move 8.5 years ago so these pics are from the Clacton Show that year 2005-he was busy rebuilding the original 4 pot Turbo but had fitted a Rover V8 in the interim, seen here of course with a Ferrari 308 and a TR6
A few more from the CMC Classic show, Sydney, August 18th.
some Kombis out in the sun,
Studebaker Avanti - one of my favourite shapes ever,
and a '32 Ford Roadster that escaped being a hot-rod.
and a classy '30s Packard.
Another view of Packards at the same show;
and an old Sydney bus was giving rides around the race track - not as far as Bondi though.
Went to check out some nice cars at a local show at Kiama NSW and found these two Mustangs. Quite nice too, but then I noticed what is parked behind. Could this explain Nuno's recent absence from this forum? Is he on a driving tour of Australia?
Early this year I was driving the 450 SLC up a mountain pass near here, (and that car does not hang about) when I was passed by a tough sounding and obviously very fast Triumph of the 'Beastie' kind. I saw it later but it was parked tight between other cars and I could not get a good photo, but it showed up at the Kiama Car Show yesterday and revealed it's secret, a Leyland V8 transplant from a P76; a derivative of the Rover (ex-Buick) lump.
So this one is for you James!
Here are some Photos taken at Thatcham by Matt Hoskins:

Fresh ('n wet) catch
SomePorsches spotted yesterday (2014.11.11) at the Telheiras Classic Meeting, an weekly informal meeting every tuesday night in Lisboa area.
In the past it was every Thursday, but the tunning brigade start to show up, so the classic people move to Tuesday.
A 2.2 T
And 2 2,7 rising the value of my MkII Scirocco...
I have to admit that the road trip photos of the classic on top of that truck and the reflection on the rim looks fabulously. Kudos to the photographer for showcasing them in the best manner possible too. Gracias my friend.
