Very nice to meet you Mr Loud! My photos from Knebworth ought to be appearing via RSM at some point and will post some/a link when they do but I think you've covered most of it anyway :D The little Honda Z at Bromley is a friend of a freinds. Has appeared in my spotted thread. Some amazing kit at that show!

More please!Are those 'spotted' pics from Brighton? That DS lives in Hove I think, near where I work. I saw it being used at a festival thing in Hove Park too. I've also spotted the manky Volvo and lovely Carlton...Great shots from Bromley, I followed that Fiat coupe into the car park and parked next to it (not in the Skoda, I was the other side in a Transit van).Did you get any pics of the white Ventora in the one make bit? I took some but the memory card in my camera destroyed itself before I could transfer them...

Thats exactly where they're from. I have to say the shite has decreased considerably since the last time I visited - almost every road had something of interest. Bristol was the same, I really have to look hard these days.

A few more from Bromley:

This beast was leaving just as I arrived. Must have spotted the Seat Leon display (yes there really was) and thought 'bugger this'.

Check this out! On a 'K' too. They did this shape up to 1992, so this is genuine, but one wonders who would have bought one - as this would have been an expensive car.

Posted Image

Always a few Fords there. Some of the shots a bit over exposed, the sun was popping in and out all day and playing havoc with my ability to control the light.

And a few more from Knebworth.

What's going on with the paintwork? Have they fitted "new" doors to match the "new" bonnet and oversprayed from the front wing? :wink:

I thought it must be this one at first :-

Bletchley today. Not cheap to get in - tenner a pop but you get a season ticket which allows you to go in and ogle the fascinating historic computers and war time efforts - the 'pigeons in war' section was ace too. As a bonus they had a car display today, which mostly featured 2 door convertibles, minis, etc but I think we can agree that these made the day worth it:

Posted Image

Posted Image

Initially I saw it on the side of the road with its bonnet up and a RAC guy fixing something. Thankfully it made it to the show, but didn't stay long.

Posted Image

Posted Image

Familiar to RR and Orange Juice Chat forum members, first time I've seen it lowered and without the reflectors. 100% improvement. I'd love this.

Then the rest:

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

This was a capri - I couldn't get to photogrpah the front because the owners were sitting in front of it giggling and drinking Kia Ora. I think.

Mash, as far as I know it was a meet at Bletchley Park, and all cars where privately owned by the public.

As for the hearse, it probabily is a Granada - with a capri front end. This is the best image I could find - lurking behind the XR4i.

Slightly different element of cars here, with a selection of stuff at the Goodwood festival of speed. One day I'll go for the whole 3 days and try and capture everything going on - too much happening at the same time. One of the biggest problems was the traffic jams - 2 hours stuck in traffic and the vast volume of people, many who act as if they have never seen a car before. That asides, I present you with a small selection of my images.

First off - a random ramble in the car park:

Posted Image

First 5 door I've seen for a long long time.

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

...and this was worth seeking out. Virtually every 505 I've seen recently have been the Estate versions.

Posted Image

Posted Image

Not entirely sure about this one. The owner had added some 'handling by lotus' badges on it which might suggest its a bit of a goer.

On the Cartier stand.

Posted Image

Posted Image

I have fond memories of my Matchbox version of this car.

Posted Image

Posted Image

I think, with the Maserati Bora this rates as my favourite 70's supercar.

Posted Image

One of several concept cars. This was designed in 1966.

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Peter Sellers mini

Posted Image

A rebodied Jaguar E-type. Must try harder.

Posted Image

I know nothing about Bugatti, but this was very elegant.

Lots of track action, again due to time restrictions I missed most of it.

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

De Tomaso powered DAF 55!

Posted Image

I took a few in the paddock, but the volume of people and the tight parking arrangements made it a pointless spending too much time there. I waited until the end of the day by which most cars were covered up.

Posted Image

The rally stages provided me with some welcome shade. Due to the fact it was right on top of the hill, most people didn't explore this - glad I did though.

Quite a few celebrities and well known faces there, particularly on the track. I missed most, but managed to capture Peter Fonda riding one handed on his chopper.

Great pics Darren. I love the festival of speed, but I doubt I'll visit again soon - last time I went I pretty much killed a brand new clutch and my diff getting out of the place, it really is abhorrent for access/egress. Maybe one day I'll have suitable transport for the revival and make about a week of it.

The Billing Toyota show has been well covered by Hirst, Mash and Spottedlaurel but in the interest of continuity and modesty, I'll bang up a few of my faves that day.

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image


I'll have to sort my one out for next years shows now I finally have a little spare income.

Posted Image

Our very own X-Factor reject, Yorkshires own Hives tribute act, one man biege saloon saver.

One the way back south, I got bored of the horrific queues on the M40 and decided to take a nosy around Silverstone as there was a lot of sports car traffic - Ferraris, Porsche etc. I saw this off the A43.

Posted Image

A few more random spots I found on the memory card.

Posted Image

This Rover was behind the Fiat/Citroen Dealer. No doubt part of the Scrapping Scheme 'incentive'.

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Today, was the renamed Adrian Flux classic show at Beaulieu - I think this was a fairly late change in venue for the Wroughton Classic car show - normally held in Wroughton near Swindon. Not sure why they changed it for beaulieu as its a fair distance away but good enough reason to pop down - despite the near £17 entrance fee for Beaulieu but to be fair this allows you up to 6 visit throughout the year, alas not including Autojumbles but they do have a few good events there so hopefully I'll make the most of those free visits.

The show itself had a pretty ordinary but neat range of cars...

Posted Image

Posted Image

The owner drove with quite a smug look on face, while his wife and kids looked decidedly sheepish and exited the car very quickly once he stopped. BL Maxi doors dontcha you know.

Posted Image

The resto work on this was excellent, as the owners were keen to show by the use of upskirt mirrors. Owners simply sat back in deckchairs and stared at people.

Posted Image

Posted Image

Quite a well known car, the owner had made little tweaks to the engine and interior, tastefully done and as I recall featured in a fairly recent magazine.

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Nice clean unmolested standard mini.

http://farm3.static....6a2349c97_o.jpg

http://farm4.static....57030e979_o.jpg

http://farm4.static....cbfebfe87_o.jpg

Not nice, but glad to have seen it here just to show the kids that the 80's was mostly tacky and a bit OTT. I'd imagine this would have set the owner a few pennies to convert though back in the day.

http://farm3.static....327558220_o.jpg

http://farm3.static....a38426874_o.jpg

Have any of these not had a confederation flag painted on it?

http://farm3.static....cb4302093_o.jpg

Wierd little thing, with Sierra back lights.

http://farm3.static....12993344b_o.jpg

http://farm4.static....9b27d5b4a_o.jpg

Would the Police have used these vans? I can't see too much use for this Austin other than transporting the confisicated narcotics and booze for the xmas party.

http://farm4.static....b98631024_o.jpg

Another ground up resto job.

The civil serene atmosphere was occasionally broken by the sound of the blues and twos of 2 Vauxhall Police cars offering free rides to kids around the grounds.

http://farm3.static....9396a4505_o.jpg

There was also a powerful motorcycle on a cradle secured to a frame. You paid a tenner to rev the nuts off it and wheelie it in the air. The noise was most unwelcome - reminded me of a Craggy island ride.

These were seen in the car park, not much pickings as today event typically attracted holiday makers as opposed to classic car seekers.

http://farm4.static....40f40f255_o.jpg

http://farm3.static....764bec3d8_o.jpg

I took snaps of a few of the Beaulieu museum cars - quite an impressive but rarely updated selection of cars. The Top Gear area had a few cars of interest - I'm not familiar with these two at all.

http://farm3.static....e91e8ee56_o.jpg

Filled with water apparently, but according to the info did reasonable well in all TG tests conducted.

http://farm4.static....39303c39d_o.jpg

Whats the story behind the Ami? It has James May tags on it.



As I continued to grumble about the entrance fee, the appearance of these made up for it.
