Went to the Custom Car Show on Saturday. Excellent show, though amazingly few people there! Some stunning cars- not shite in any way, but think there's a few on here who'll appreciate them.
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.
Posted Image
Not usually a fan of more recent Mercs, but this is a stunner!
Posted Image
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.
Posted Image
Absolutely lovely P5
Posted Image
Posted Image
Whoever is responsible for this abomination should be shot!! In my opinion anyway!
Posted Image
Posted Image
Not at all sure what to make of this!! I thought the fenderless look was illegal?
Posted Image
Posted Image
This inoffensive looking Avenger..............
Posted Image
was packing nicely installed V8 power.

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!! :shock:
'29 Ford Model A van
Posted Image
'32 Ford Model B roadster
Posted Image
'32 Ford Model B 3-window coupe
Posted Image
another '32 Ford Model B 3-window coupe, this one un-chopped
Posted Image
'33 Ford 3 window coupe
Posted Image
Stunning '46 Chevy pick up
Posted Image
Astonishing '47 Ford "woodie." The woodwork was breathtaking!
Posted Image
Lovely Ford V8 Pilot
Posted Image
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!!! :shock: 8)
Posted Image
Posted Image
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!
Posted Image
Stunning '56 Chevy Belair 2 door hardtop.
Posted Image
Mean-looking '57 Chevy Belair 2 door sedan
Posted Image
Very subtle '55 Ford Zephyr..............
Posted Image
with a V8 that looks like it belongs there.
Posted Image
equally subtle Mk 2 Zephyr High-line...............
Posted Image
with a V8 that also looked right at home.
Posted Image
I have MANY more pics, but probably pushing my luck posting these!! :lol:

Mind blowing pics 55bloke, the Humber Pullman is just an incredible creation :shock: 8) But, the high riding MK3 Zodiac nearly made me sick :cry: 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 :lol:

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!!

You have to admire them for investing so much time/effort/money on their cars....Yellow Chevy looks beautiful! 8) Have to admit, I don't share Your enthusiasm for that P5 Rover though! :shock:
2005 Honda Accord 2.2i-CTDi Executive Tourer....Not Shite, but splendid nonetheless!
2006 Hyundai Getz 1.5 CRTD CDX 3-Door....More fun than you'd think!

When you were 25bloke?

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.....

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...

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.

Loving that Avenger, it must have a power to weight ratio to match a McLaren F1!My other fave is that Mk2 Zeypher (GFL758), no gash wheels, a V8 engine and a understated paint job, a fantastic period tool.

Quite agree! Pointless, and destructive. Spoils an otherwise superb car. Still, each to their own, I guess.

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....

That sounds like it would look superb! Any chance you could scan the pic and post it for us?
