Some prime chod right there, I'd have thought stuff would've lasted even less well than in Scotland! Good to see that's not the case.

What's the script with registration marks, do they follow any age or area patterns, or is it random?

ECC Open Day time again.

 

DSC_0413.JPG

 

Fine BL collection. Maxi is the latest barn (swamp?) find. Assume it will be teased back to life at some point. It makes no economic sense but will probably happen anyway as "the right thing to do"

 

DSC_0327 - Copy.JPG

 

75s well represented as usual. Recent imported ZT..

 

DSC_0350.JPG

 

...and primrose 75 requiring some attention

'Best trousers' award went to this chap. Nice bloke...came in a TVR of all things

 

DSC_0378 - Copy.JPG

 

..but another one, not this one

 

DSC_0408.JPG

 

At the other end of the scale a Post Office LDV Pilot came along

 

DSC_0355.JPG

 

At the end of the end of another scale a hipster bloke brought this along. Salmson I think. He had one of those buns in his hair which, as a bald bloke, I find really irritating.

TR6 with bored dog to finish off with

Thank you to Steve, Don and Ken once again

Nice part of the country with the lakes etc. Sadly I will probably be moving back to UK at about the same time after ten years
