Yes, this was weeks ago. I couldn't be arsed uploading the pictures until now... I took the Acclaim as late entries don't get in and I'd not pre-booked so not worth the hassle of taking the Dolomite.

 

First spot was this as the Scottish Vintage Vehicle Trust were running some proper busses around town:

Is it even a car show if there isn't a row of Stags?

1980s BL/AR crap was out in strength!

Girlfriend couldn't believe the GS was the same age as my antiquated Doloshite!

 

Older BMC stuff was also kicking about:

The show is organised by the local Rootes Group club so there was much Rootage in attendance!

All in all a really good show with a large selection of vehicles and less rows of Mk2 Escorts and MGBs than I'm used to! I've discovered my girlfriend likes VW Beetles, Morris Travellers and Hillman Super Minxes, which is a good start.

The likes of Moffat and Biggar can sometimes produce a decent selection as it's close enough for the north Englanders to make their way north. The likes of Bridge of Allan, East Fortune, Errol and the likes all seem to produce the exact same lineup of Ford Cortinas and Escort Mexicos. Going by how many Mexicos turn up at the various Scottish events, it would appear that of all the Escort Mexicos ever produced, approximately 140% of them survive.

 

I keep threatening to do Selkirk but I'm yet to make it.

 

You should do Chumly with us whenever it's on. It's usually a decent laugh and a decent selection. There's also ample oppurtunity to heckle the god awful announcer and the concourse events are open to all. We normally completely hijack the 80s and 90s catagories. The best one though was the one at Arley (same organisers and not that far away) when dollywobbler entered the 2CV into the coupe / cabrio section.

I'm used to the North East where your oil money can buy you many things but an imagination isn't one them. Thus 20,000 Mk2 Escorts show up on trailers along with the local Morris 1000/Austin A30/35 clubs and that's about it.

Please come to Chumley, it's always a good day out (if a long way!). There are local campsites, though.

Scottish Classic Car shows have been exactly the same cars in exactly the same fields for as long as I can remember.

Haven't been to one in years. Should go and see, but these photos suggest little has changed.

I bloody thought I saw you around too but didn’t say anything as I assumed that you lived too far north to go. I honestly thought it was just coincidental that I happen to know someone else in Scotland with a beard and a thing for 70’s clothes...

I didn’t realise it was your Acclaim parked beside the fence either, I got a nice shot of it in 35mm film, I’ll send it to you if it develops alright.

On this occasion I totally agree. Did you see this 1979 Colt tucked way up in the corner?

Shit, the 2 standouts in those pictures for me were the 2000 and the Post Bus. Looks like I'm on the same wavelength as Hairnet!?!?

The GS belongs to the fella that was helping 320Touring with his GSA, I know that much!

 

I missed the Colt sadly, by the time I did a sweep of the car park it was pretty much packing up time.
