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.

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.

Nice clean unmolested standard mini.

Thanks girls, see you next year!

WOW! some great pic there, I really like the BMW E12 M535i (very rare car now) and the Princesses, that Panther is rank. Bothe Minis very nice although it looks (from an anorak's point of view) that he's fitted the rear wheel arches to the front tut tut bloody anal concourse types. White Mini is lovely-really like that...as well as those lovely laydees.

I was asked if I'd display my Mini in September, I hate the idea to be honest, quite different looking at other cars but not sure I want to spend eight hours bored out of my mind although I could go looking like this:

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.

That's a Tatra T97, not T87. It's got a flat 4 engine, not the V8 :D

A few spots while roaming around.

How much would something like this be worth?

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Been there for a week or so, presumably going to transport that expired Passat back to Poland. The car under the tarp *might* be a Jeep.

I couldn't snap the Transit, as there is a childrens playground to the right and I'm not willing to take the unnecessary risk - I'll wait until some other time. Its been here and seemingly occupied for a few months now.

Posted Image

Proper car for the job.

Early column shift model. Not sure whats going to happen to this car, it was parked outside a recovery garage - I can forward details of the exact location if someone fancies a resque plan.

Cheers brammy. The cav is a 1.8 LX model, I think a run out model before the mk3. Car belongs to one of my dads mates, he's had since the late 80's and might be persuaded to get rid. Not sure what I'd do with it though....

its okay :) I love those cavaliers, i love all cavaliers.they remind me of my childhood, i used to see them everywhere. One of my favourite cars.It looks in good nick, so should be worth a fair bit more than the occasional 'L' models you see on the bay.slightly O/T, but does anyone else see loads of MKIII cavs everyday? I see at least 7 a day.

Apparently this is a 1938 Sidney Smith Special. It was at the Bristol Italian car day and there is a bit of history and it's resto on this link

As always DC - a great photo.

Same colour as my old one. I'm not sure they ever had a column change - but the early cars had the umbrella handbrake under the dash. This looks solid enough - rear arches just starting to go but not bad. Bonnet looks a bit crappy. I have too much on my plate - really sad to have to say 'no' to this. :(

IIRC they did an ‘i’ version of the LX Cavalier too?Sunny’s a run-out model too. Think I prefer the Spirit version to the Maxima they also did, but both were just a UK lash-up with extra bits. Ultimately I prefer my B11s in pre-facelift flavour.

The home of one previous owner Japanese cars:

1973 Datsun 1200 B110 2dr; 1980 Laurel 2.4 C230; 1988 Sunny 1.6 LX N13
1992 Camry 2.2GL (definitely just for spares now); 1993 Camry Estate 2.2GL on the road again!!

And a couple of modern Toyotas

That is a Cav LXi, one of my favourite versions of the Mk2 Cavalier and rather thin on the ground now.I recall they did an Astra LXi estate as well towards the end of Mk2 Astra production.

I suspect people have seen enough of the recent RR event, so I'll only post a few of the 500+ shots(!) I have to say I really enjoyed it and credit goes to the organisers for presenting a varied and diverse show. I'm ok with modded cars, and it was great to see cars with a bit of humour and imagination. Good to see a few friendly faces and meet some new ones too.

Commencing pic dump.

Marvellous pic's RL!Though it would have denied you that shot of the big American estate literally in the weeds, kind of a shame that the hosts of a big event like this can't whizz a mower around the field first.Seeing these pic's and by chance finding some I took at the museum years ago has reminded me it would be good to pop in when we're down that way next week. Shame I missed it by just one week...

As mentioned before the expected variation and locality (to me) made the Retro Rides show a no brainer for me to attend. I never got a chance to roam inside the museum but I plan to make a day of it soon.

These are a few bit and pieces of non show cars I've seen over the last month or so.

We'll start with some BL tin first. By co-incidence these happen to be run out models. I also saw a X reg maxi and R reg maestro, but wasn't quick enough to snap them.

Posted Image

Posted Image

Even later Allegro on a Y - I'd imagine sharing a dealership with the then spanking new Maestro.

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

I'd quite like to buy one of these - the novelty of standing up while driving or maybe selling ice cream has some appeal.

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Seem to be a few of these 11's knocking around.

Posted Image

Boutique wheels! Midway through T-cut resto.

Posted Image

Posted Image

Quite pleased to have seen this anonymous looking Nissan. The car would have been a massive improvement over the RWD generation which looked similar.

Posted Image

Probabily the most inspired spot, typical old man driver but surprisingly without stickers, reflectors and all that crap older people tend to customise their cars with.

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

These Uno's are on the endangered list, the government is to blame. Like early 309's, Volvo 3 series and R19's, Unos are still fairly common so I'm relectant to generally post them up on here. Won't be long before Tempras and Tipos start become the endangered.

Posted Image

This is a shame, but hardly unexpected in this day and age. I would almost guarantee that nothing was stolen from this fragile looking Cortina.

Posted Image

Top spec 1.5 Ibiza and seemingly well looked after. I rather like the look of these cleanly styled cars and find it amazing that no ones done a 'scene version' yet.
