Doncaster Racecourse Car Show.
Posted 22 October 2007 - 02:52 PM
Did think the car park might be a good place for autoshite spotting, but very little of interest:
A couple of Yank campers.
A pair of Veedubs from the same year.
Not usually a fan of more recent Mercs, but this is a stunner!
The show it's self had two areas- the real show queens were tucked up inside, the more usual stuff outside:-
I was rather impressed by this Astra- much more subtle than the usual treatment.
Absolutely lovely P5
Whoever is responsible for this abomination should be shot!! In my opinion anyway!
Not at all sure what to make of this!! I thought the fenderless look was illegal?
This inoffensive looking Avenger..............
was packing nicely installed V8 power.

'29 Ford Model A van
'32 Ford Model B roadster
'32 Ford Model B 3-window coupe
another '32 Ford Model B 3-window coupe, this one un-chopped
'33 Ford 3 window coupe
Stunning '46 Chevy pick up
Astonishing '47 Ford "woodie." The woodwork was breathtaking!
Lovely Ford V8 Pilot
Absolutely amazing late '40s Humber Pullman. Started life as a 4-door sedan! Had it's roof removed and a one-off convertable hood made, and a V12 Jag under the bonnet!!!
One of many Ford Pops, this about the best, I thought. Proving you CAN get a V8 under the (original steel) bonnet without resorting to major bulkhead butchery, or driving from the back-seat!
Stunning '56 Chevy Belair 2 door hardtop.
Mean-looking '57 Chevy Belair 2 door sedan
Very subtle '55 Ford Zephyr..............
with a V8 that looks like it belongs there.
equally subtle Mk 2 Zephyr High-line...............
with a V8 that also looked right at home.
I have MANY more pics, but probably pushing my luck posting these!!

Glad you like BS6. Totally share your views- I had a feeling you'd be horrified by the Mk 3!! Looking it over it appeared to be a pretty sound shell, no signs of holes in the sills or under the wheel arches, but the door bottoms were full of filler, and it had dings all over it! Sacrilage!!
Mind blowing pics 55bloke, the Humber Pullman is just an incredible creation But, the high riding MK3 Zodiac nearly made me sick You have to admire the skill and workmanship that has gone into most of those vehicles though, in a slightly different league to the shit Barried up Corsa's you see at the local McBurgers carparks

2006 Hyundai Getz 1.5 CRTD CDX 3-Door....More fun than you'd think!

When you were 25bloke?
Moving indoors, we find the REAL stars. Have to admit, these are the kind of cars I fantasise about!! Loved' em ever since I saw my 1st copy of Custom Car, 30odd years ago!!
These are amazing like real life Micro Machines / Hot Wheels cars!
These aren't the sort of thing I hanker after myself - not to own anyway - but they look fabulous all the same - just to stare at & admire.
Not sure I could pick a fave, but if I was pinned down.....
It would have to be this
Mean-looking '57 Chevy Belair 2 door sedan
Posted 22 October 2007 - 04:45 PM
1973 Datsun 1200 B110 2dr; 1980 Laurel 2.4 C230; 1988 Sunny 1.6 LX N13
1992 Camry 2.2GL project car (still on hold); 1993 Camry Estate 2.2GL (was daily driver, written-off and awaiting repair)
1996 Lexus LS400
And a couple of modern Toyotas.

Its not widely known, but Ford did produce a one off prototype Mk2 Zephyr 2 door pillarless coupe, there is a picture of it in the excellent book 'Consul,Zephyr,Zodiac, the big fifties Fords' by Michael Allen, and it looks fantastic, shame it never made production....
The 'inside' stuff is great, but like Reg it's the Avenger which appeals to me most.If only they hadn't gone for a 2dr conversion on the Mk2 Zephyr...

Let me see what I can do, I don't own a scanner myself, but will try and use a friends/family members over the next few days
That sounds like it would look superb! Any chance you could scan the pic and post it for us?
