A lovely looking 1981 T25 in yellow with it's
flower decals which actually suit the bus. At
stock height and with those big aftermarket
wheels this bus really did look good.
|This stretched Lincoln had ribbons on the |
front and heart shaped windows so I assume
it's used as a wedding car...?
|This off white coloured MK2 Ford Zephyr|
convertible looked great with it's immaculate
paint and those matching white wall tyres.
The MK2 was produced from 1956 - 1962.
These Zephyr's had the 2253cc engine with
the 3 speed manual gearbox.
| A gorgeous Jaguar D type (I think this is a|
replica) in an unusual light green colour.
Jaguar produced the D type between 1954 -
1957 it shares a lot of mechanical components
with the earlier C type including the 3.8 litre
straight six engine.
|The D type won the famous Le Mans 24 hour|
race in, 1955, 1956 and 1957. Behind the D
type is a blue and white Ford Consul Capri
from the early 1960's.
|You could have, if you had wanted to tried the|
latest craze off Zorbing. You get inside these
big inflatable balls and well, sort of roll around
in a cordoned off area like a hamster in it's
exercise ball bashing into each other.
|A 1928 Scott Squirrel motorcycle made in |
Shipley in West Yorkshire. This 'sports' bike
had a 486cc engine with aluminium pistons.
|A gorgeous red Ford Model T Tudor with black|
running boards and visor and wooden artillery
wheels. The Tudor had a 2.9 in line four cylinder
engine, with a top speed of 40 - 45mph.
|A lovely 1925 Ford Model T Tourer named|
'Nellie Jean'. This gorgeous car was made in
Detroit in 1925 and has had every removable
panel removed and re-painted, the engine
has been reconditioned and the distributor
has been replaced.
|The Model T controls look basic to say the |
least. The Model T had a 20hp 4 cylinder in
line side valve engine with a 3 bearing
crankshaft which works out about 2896cc.
|The Ford Transit owners club were attending |
the show and had some amazing Transit's on
display including this 1966 dark blue camper
model with pop top.
|There were a few 'bubble' cars on show and |
here is a blue / grey 1963 BMW Isetta and a
lovely white Messerschmitt both in a beautiful
|A lovely blue and white race themed 1958 |
Austin-Healy (Frogeye) Sprite. The Sprite was
low cost car with a sales price of just £669
and the advert said it was a car that "A chap
could keep in his bike shed"
|This gorgeous Jaguar C Type is a replica but|
still looked great. It's based on a 1956 Jaguar
and uses many original Jaguar components.
|A beautiful 1950's Alfa Romeo 1900 Super|
Sprint in the famous Alfa red paint. These
1900's were produced from 1950 - 1959
and even back then the design was simply
|The Alfa from the side, not a very good photo|
but the guy on the edge of the photo was a
judge talking to the owner so I thought I'd
better not disturb them.
|Unusual side windows, I don't think these were|
standard so I assume they have been made
to order, they do look good though.
|Annelise came along in her baby blue and |
white 1971 early bay with the kids while her
partner Andy, came along on his newly
purchased 1960 Puch Motorroler SR 150.
Both Andy and Annelise are members of the
Outcast VW Club.
|Annelise's baby blue bay parked up between|
a yellow early bay and an orange late bay.
There was a good variety of air cooled VW's
at the classic car rally.
|I do like the early 1960's American station|
wagon's, they just look so cool. In 1962 the
Squire featured faux wood trim on the sides.
|This blue 1968 beetle looked like a solid car.|
This looked all original and in very good
condition. Apparently the yellow ribbons were
there due to this Bug being a prom Taxi on the
Friday before the show, they add a nice touch.
|The classic 1950's styling of having a wrap |
round rear window. The two tone paint came
as standard. Studebaker closed it's factory
in March 1966.
|This really was a lovely looking bug. It doesn't|
really show in my photo but the camber on
those rear wheels was amazing. I did like the
boot rack and the all red rear light lenses.
|This lovey 1966 gloss black beetle looked|
amazing, it was so straight and the reflection
down the side was almost perfect. I do like
the BRM wheels which suit the car perfectly.
|Amazing reflections all over the body on this|
beetle. The chrome nerf bars, instead of the
original bumpers suit the overall look of this car.
|A lovely looking 1974 beach buggy finished|
in black, which thinking about it is quite an
un-usual colour for a buggy as they are
normally painted in bold bright colours.
|Putting the colour to one side, this really was |
a fantastic looking buggy, those huge rear
wheels and tyres looked great and looked as
though they could take this buggy almost
|There were the customary military vehicles|
at the rally, every conceivable vehicle in the
military colours with lots of original equipment.
Most of these were all original vehicles.
|Numerous classic bikes from years gone by,|
from pre-war to the eighties what ever you
can think of, it was probably here.
|A stunning Wolsley 6/90 Police car in what |
looked like original specification. These 6/90's
were produced from 1954 - 1959 with the 2.6
litre engine which gave a top speed of 96mph
and a 0-60 time of 17 seconds.
