|Steve / Pauline and I met James and Helen|
at the services. Steve's white beetle, James
baby blue beetle and my bay window.
|James led our small convoy through the |
country lanes to the village of Chearsley.
|Outcast VW Club parked up at the show.|
Nice blue sky and sunshine when we arrived
but the sun didn't stay long.
|This Cooper T3 ( I think) F1 racing car circa |
the late 1950's.
|It must have been frightning driving this around|
at breakneck speeds with those skinny tyres
and I shouldn't think that roll over bar would
help much should the car roll over.
|A bit different from the F1 cars of today, note|
the 4 speed manual gearbox changer down
on the drivers right hand side.
|A nice looking 1972 crossover bay window.|
|A lovely looking Zeus ZR163 Formula Ford|
racing car. This has the Ford Kent 1600cc
cross flow engine.
|Another Zues ZR163, this one was produced|
but never assembled by the manufacturer.
|It's probably just as well it only had a 2 cylinder|
engine with a 60mph top speed because
considering how the wheels are connected
to the hubs I'm not sure it could survive much
|A late T25 with high top and bright paintwork.|
|This 1980 T25 looked as though it had been|
freshly painted, nice colour though.
|Interior was clean and functional with full |
|This lovely 1967 Type 34 Karmann Ghia |
painted in a light bronze really caught my eye.
|Such a lovely classic shape that will never go|
out of fashion or style. This car has been all
over Europe including, France, Germany,
Switzerland and Hungary now that is a lot of
|But I reckon sitting in the drivers seat in this|
Type 34 the miles of driving would be so
enjoyable they would just fly by.
|This enormous Pontiac looks like a 1950|
Silver Streak eight convertible to me and
finished in a spotless light blue colour.
|I do like all the chrome work the 50's American|
cars had, I don't think there is enough chrome
around on today's cars.
|That bench seat must have been 6' wide,|
and with column change you could easily
fit 3/4 people in there. That dashboard is
a work of art with the styling and even more
|These two MK3 Ford Cortina's brought back|
some happy memories as I had a 2 door MK3
in Carnival red with a full length sunroof.
|This 1600cc GT finished in deep gloss black|
and didn't look this nice when it left the Ford
production line back in 1973.
|Another car from my era was this MK1 Ford|
Escort. This race / rally style themed car
|A 1967 Ford Mustang fastback finished in|
a deep red. This car used to be called the
'Enforcer' and had airbrushed pictures of
Clint Eastwood back in the day.
|This Austin Eight was running a 2 litre pinto|
motor with Vauxhall Viva HC front suspension
and Ford Capri rear axle.
|It has model 'B' rear fenders and running on|
Wolfrace slot mags. A pair of good looking
VW's in the background.
|This mid 1950's Ford Popular was finished in|
blue with dark blue flames and again running
on slot mags.
|Classic 1980's styling from the rear of this |
'Pop', teardrop rear tail-lights and wide rear
|A lovely 1958 Chevrolet Apache 31 series|
pick up truck finished in a lovely emerald
green with super bright chrome work.
|Such a lovely looking truck in excellent |
condition that just looks so cool.
|A lovely baby blue Dodge Challenger circa|
|These Challengers are massive but they had|
the big block V8 to power them along.
|A 1954 Chevrolet step side truck in matt black|
with white bumpers, pure hot rod. This truck
was imported from California 2 years ago.
