Heads up, who will be attending this cavalcade? I will be at the Felixstowe end at around lunchtime, any shiters up for a meet? We could meet at the Ace of bASe/ Cardinal Greygrille perhaps. I shall be in my wheelchair, so fairly easy to spot I think.

Talk about a trek, we had Herr Trigglesworthington at one end with his SD1, and shoved right up near old Felixstowe, Bournidentity with the Ace of bASe/ Cardinal Grey Grille. Was nice to speak with Triggs and Daniel, weather was a bit too hot I think for me, I'm exhausted.

This Escort that was once native to the Isle Of Wight was rusting in some 'interesting places'.

One thing that did baulk me was when Triggs told me the entrance fee, £17, I'm sorry, but that is somewhat excessive to be brutally honest, the similar sized Hull-Brid run is just £6 (with a 30 odd mile road run and park up at a huge rally site), it just seems to me that everything involving Ipswich Transport Museum is over priced. the museum inside is poor, too many exhibits packed in like sardines, and today, the PCV section, most were parked up so you could barely get a fag paper between the vehicles, I gave up trying to snap stuff, and today at Felixstowe, the vehicles were spread almost as far south as you can get, and stretched right up to Old Felixstowe, this knocked seven shades of shit out of me and the Mrs, so much we had to get a minicab home. I don't really think Felixstowe has anywhere suitable to host this event any longer, it has outgrown the seafront, it would have helped a bit if there weren't so many Triumph Stags there. Sorry for the rant, but today has really left me utterly exhausted, and I lost count of how many people actually walked in to me, FFS I'm in a wheelchair, I',m not that easy to miss

That's my friends Galaxie, it's a pretty interesting car, it was built in 1960 by Ford of Canada in RHD for Ford of America to be exported to the UK, Capel St. Mary garage in Ipswich got the franchise to sell the American imports and sold 6 cars over a year in total, this was one of them.

It had a couple of owners over the next 11 years, all from Ipswich and mostly used for holidays until 1971 when my friend who was 19 at the time bought it as it was the rag top version of his father's wagon, which coincidentally was one of other the 6 cars sold at Capel garage in 1960. He used it on and off over the years until parking it up in 1988 due to lack of use.

Then last year it came back out again and was recommissioned.

ece842d7be5e7e7a2b3ecb8d6b758fa6.jpg

The paintwork is still the original, it has a cool patina to it, when he first bought it he ended up in the local rag due to the wheel trim coming off over a local bridge in front of a poilceman on a bicycle!

Love stuff like that Triggs, it is a part of local history, and being RHD, well crumbs. Just uploading my photos to my site host to save flooding the group, only took around 200 photos, it knocked the snot out of me, next year I think I will just go down to Trimley & set the camera up on the tripod

Enjoying seeing the photos and reading what others thought about the run.

 

A quick report from me, the day went well for us in the two Datsuns. Mrs SL told me the brake lights on the Laurel weren't working, which I didn't know about, but as she would be pretty much the only car following me for the next two days and 120 miles I decided to live with it.

 

We were a bit late arriving at the park so ended up in pretty much the last full row of cars. A familiar shape a few ahead of us.......

 

P1000098.JPG

 

For some reason the Pontiac, a regular entrant, had an FTP. Didn't see it any more so presumably it didn't make Felixstowe?

 

Trigger was his usual cheery self.......

 

P1000096.JPG

 

Sadly this happened to one or two people, but surprisingly few given the number of entrants:

 

P1000101.JPG

 

Ended up following this for much of the journey. There was the occasional smokescreen, but the maligned straight-six did make a lovely noise with more of a snarl than the waffly six in my Laurel.

 

P1000103.JPG

 

Photos at both the park and on the prom were challenging due to the sheer number of people around. A few of those I've sorted so far......

This 1948 Wolseley limo was really rather large.

End of the day. By the time we'd eaten our fish and chips we were the last cars left up this end of the prom. We were within the last dozen or so parked here and I did walk to the very opposite end to see the Sierra and everything else in between. It had obviously been a challenge for them to fit everyone on, for reasons mentioned above.

 

One thing I like about this event is the fact that it exposes old cars to people who wouldn't otherwise go to a 'normal' show, and of course it was good to catch up with a few AS folk.

 

Brake lights aside, both my cars coped admirably. Mrs SL was somewhat nervous about using the 1200 again after 2016, when its running problems started to occur (plus a one-off braking issue), but all was OK this time around.

Interesting. American cars never re-gained their popularity here after the war, in part due to the exchange rate and other pecuniary influences which meant even the cheap U.S. cars were around the same cost as a British luxury car.

I was always amazed by their cost when looking through 50s and 60s Autocar and Motor mags.....You presumably had to be a gangster, amusement arcade mogul or Diana Dors to afford one - or at least choose one instead of a Bentley or Mark Ten.   What is hard to understand is how, even with the preferential duty afforded by Canadian origin under Commonwealth regime of the time it still didn't make Galaxies or Laurentians any cheaper than US cars.    They depreciated like a stone, too - car lots were full of cheap five-year old Yanks back then.  

 

Excellent photo coverage from Mr Laurel, too....

I was there for a few hours, mainly to see a friend of mine who was participating in his rather scrummy Fiat 500 Abarth replica. Unfortunately, though I found his car, I didn't bump into him, and the same is true of Trigger and Borniteidentity, though I did manage a 'hello' in Spottedlaurel's direction.

 

I also took the wrong lens for the event - my 50mm is by far the sharpest thing I have, but requires that you stand about thirty feet away to get the whole car in shot. No use whatsoever with the crowds of confused chipeaters that were milling about.

DSC_0097.JPG

 

That Princess limo made quite an impression on me, though. What a fantastic shape. Kind of a Harris Mann equivalent of the long-wheelbase CX.

 

DSC_0144.JPG

 

And, I know we're not supposed to like these, but an early MGB GT on these wheels is a lovely thing indeed.

 

Good event. Not really sure why I had never attended in the past.

This usually gets blessed with decent weather as well, which ironically is the reason I no longer attend. There's always a few people who don't even make it the first mile or so through overheating/fuel evaporation and I agree it's kind of outgrown Felixstowe seafront, hordes of ambling doughnut-grazing pedestrians leaving scratches and smear fingerprints up the sides of your car. The journey itself is pleasant though with the road lined with spectators

Always a good turn out of interesting stuff too including the aforementioned and apparently annual Stag-only section about halfway along. My favourite memory of this event is from about five years ago as me and a mate were walking past a metallic purple Beetle, not my bag but clearly cherished. The owner was sitting in it with the windows down as two old Suffolk boys were inspecting it. One turned to the other and said "lovely little motors these, ain't they?" to which his mate replied after a beautifully timed pause "Nah. My dad had one. They're fucking shit."

I managed to get there last year and really enjoyed. Clashed with Japfest this time around, so I couldn't go. 

A really special event, though - even if I couldn't find Rex Garrod's clock (and no bugger knew where it was until I asked Trigger, and even then I couldn't find it).

I LOVE how Team-SpottedLaurel split into Girls vs Boys. What a lovely family, and really nice to meet Lisa and see the kids (who looked like they actually WANTED to be there!)

I also look almost cool. I remember seeing someone semi serious with a couple of cameras on that relief road between Levington and Trimley; I’m glad I gave them a wave!!
