Some lovely spots there mate, thanks for posting.

I watched Bronson recently and that made me realise how much better looking the earlier Marinas are than the last of the liners.


Yeah I like the colour coded grilles on early Marinas, that shade of red really suits a Marina.

Looks like a good selection of cars - especially love the Corsair! Looks like it's got Lotus steelies on, and maybe lowered?

Great selection of stuff.

I think the chap who runs Power & Performance up this way is/was working on a Kapitan. I have the badge off one, found it in Medler's scrapyard 10-odd years ago. Don't recall seeing the car itself though, could have still been there but there was so much rusty and odd stuff it would have been difficult to tell.

The home of one previous owner Japanese cars:

1973 Datsun 1200 B110 2dr; 1980 Laurel 2.4 C230; 1988 Sunny 1.6 LX N13
1992 Camry 2.2GL (definitely just for spares now); 1993 Camry Estate 2.2GL on the road again!!

And a couple of modern Toyotas

That Corsair looks good in my opinion, the front end on 'em looks tough yet they seem to be overlooked. I suppose they're not exactly popular..

Strange isn't it, that they're not in the same league as the Mk 1 Cortina, with which I believe they shared so many parts. Don't think they look as good, so obviously image is everything!

Michel, don't know. Not a number plate style I'm familiar with.

I took some photos at the Ace at last nights Classic meet for the first time in a couple of months. The weather was good during the day which probably helped get quite a respectable turnout for a Feb do.

I am not sure I do know the pre-war thing Seth, can't say I can 100% confirm the location.
1930's (ex)council stock like that is found in pretty much every village within 10 miles of here(and highly prized) - all I know is there are none like that in poggleswade itself...

Pog, it was on the way down to Keith's though I doubt you go that way often.

A quick update! Clock and Watch fair today so there's always something interesting in the car park but I think the weather made todays haul a bit of a bonanza.

Caught this in the traffic outside. Police had closed the road so I did a U-turn and this was stuck a little way back.

Tonight I went to pick up an Ebay purchase. I'd never me the seller before but turned out he was a CO-OC stalwart and could tell me my Oxfords reg no! This is his current daily though he also has a smart 16/60 that was parked elsewhere.

Posted Image

Posted Image

Also owned a Hunter his dad bought new in '73 but I didn't see that either.

His area was a rich seam that requires further investigation. These two were just from driving round the block to get back towards home.

The remainder are all off Mrs_Seth's phone. a couple may have been up before but I can't remember.

Some good spots there, that Marina is buff. Also, that Skoda takes the biscut for obscure London wrecks, I bet it sounds utterly terrible/lovely.

Is that off a Maestro, Montego or a Metro?
DUNNO!
