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:
