Just got home after an unscheduled stop to fix a Sunbeam Tiger with a dodgy fuel pump :shock: Many photos to sort now and yes I did spot the bASe looking rather out of place. This was my favourite:

And here's said Tiger before it disgraced itself. Fixed now and hopefully well on its way home.

Stanza looks purdy. Wtaf is a new MX5 doing there though?

Them yellow cubes from out of a proper old-school urinal are easy to sneak in and a better buzz than any modern chemical shit. Never done me any harm.

There was a lot of modern stuff that wasn't in any way classic and didn't deserve to be there. Even a 64-reg Vauxhall Insignia in the show field for some reason! Also, a ten-year old Goona still in working order is now officially a classic - see photographic evidence below

I was in the carpark with the daily, but walked about on foot.. Lots of nice stuff!

 

T5 mid-engined mini

Going back tomorrow, cos it'll probably be stuck there with handbrake or electrical problem

^ Goonas are the equivalent of Renault 20's in the late 1980's. They're all falling apart, they're being broken at a rate of knots and in around 25 years time, a tiny group of people on the internet will track down the few remaining cars and try, with limited success, to make them work reliably.

Edit: Great photos above. Mk1 MR2 looks lovely as well. Has a tall cat peed on the base's passenger door lock?

Loooob. The lock was perilously close to seizing. Washing it is also illegal, so it's a catch 22.

My favourite car of the night? The signal orange Capri. 😍

It is a nice meet up this one......nice mix of cars and you don't have to look at the ones you don't like.

I saw the quicksilver Maxi too....looks even better in the metal.

Had a chat to the proud custodian of the base..........and I noticed it got papped a few times too.

I saw Mr Six in the distance but he vanished.....tried to guess which car he would have but his fleet is too big for my memory so I didn't have a clue.

A few more highlights

 

Sherply Sherpless

YIL8902.jpg

 

SVM Funeral Services

A20TUD.jpg

 

Local reg Acclaim

A393XNH.jpg

 

This looked like a full-on roadgoing BTCC car

KF56POJ.jpg

 

Late BX

L387CEL.jpg

 

Don't normally like Beetles but this was sweet

MNH800.jpg

 

Straight out of Max Power circa 1998

P842TBM.jpg

 

German build quality at its finest. Check out that hole in the wing

S202EAB.jpg

 

One of these would fit in the back of the other

TOS6191.jpg

 

Magnum opus

GRD4L.jpg

 

I know it isn't but I'm going to call this a Lincoln Continental just to annoy Herr Junkman

KSU847.jpg

 

Just like a mini Thunderbird

861RPD.jpg

 

Where did these all disappear to?

G822FBD.jpg

Scened VWs were in abundance but here's some natural rat look

F839CPW.jpg

 

Nice unmolested early Ashtray

J284OJF.jpg

 

This was in the car park for some reason but was far more deserving of the show field than many of the things that were there

Could have take plenty of "Twunts who have annoyed me with their cars" but decided to keep my blood pressure down.

There is a 'breakfast' version of this on Sunday 21st May............about 9 until 1 I think.

 

Facebook flyer mentions bacon butties, coffee and live music.

 

I've promised to tidy the garden up..........and this isn't far away from the tip I use so might pop in with the truck!

Having to miss it again - I've got to look at the brakes on my friends Sebring convertible. Kwik fit have been there, so I'm expecting everything to be seized, rounded or both.
