We trundled up to Stoneleigh yesterday for the restoration show/jumble. Some quality tat spots in the bit where we parked :D

A lovely pair of old English cars. I hope the MK2 owner found lots of useful parts :wink:

I'm loving that Maxi, even in it's strange 90's-looking colour.

Any similarities?

No? Just me. I'll get my coat...

That 90 looks very good for an 80's Alfa! The Mitsuoka looks almost like a weird photoshop of a squished MK2... odd things. Would love to build a mid-engined one with a 3.8 litre XK :D

I walked around there really unimpressed by it all. The autojumble is very large but so 'main stream british' it's scary, whilst the 'show' bit was very very weak. :(

That CX looks like it could be a bargain. If the DS makes a half-decent amount I might well be into that.

There was at least one other Mitsuoka there too. Perhaps they're getting acceptable as "winter drivers" for real Jag owners? :shock: We had a pretty good rummage round and picked up quite a few bits including a decidedly non English ball joint for the Saab, chassis outrigger for the Herald and MGB rear telescopic shock conversion bits that will hopefully work on the Oxford for a fiver. :D

Ha, I'd love one of each with 'my summer car is a real MK2'/'my other car is a Mitsuoka' stickers.

"WBH" indicates a Luton registration. Ex-brochure/press car? Or a survivor of the (very generous) employee perks scheme?
