Spent the weekend in a reasonably sunny Shropshire and used the opportunity to visit Weston Park off the M54. The content was heavily VW based, but I think the event started off as a Volkswagen thing a few years back. There was a lot of modern content (new scirocco, lupos, golfs etc) but the vibe of the show was very broad in selection and friendly - something that seems to be lacking in a lot of shows these days. I noticed a MGB and Spitfire driving out as I drove in, and took that as a good sign.

VW's first....

One of relatively few beetles on display - and by far my favourite. I'm under the impression that a lot of the kids who own Golfs, polos, lupos etc aren't generally that interested in the air-cooled side of VW.

One of the first UK registered GTIs.

One of at least a dozen Golf GTIs. I borrowed a Y reg one for a summer years ago, and I fully understand the appeal of these cars.

2 door Jettas were never imported into the UK, this is a Dutch sourced one.

Lovely trio of civics. Amazingly I counted more old Hondas than Fords at the event.

Good day out, a bit different and I really think this is the way forward for car shows - certainly for me anyway.

Great photos RL, I do like the variety of cars on display there. I like that Acty, and I also like the Prelude. Until you see one, its quite easy to forget how small they actually are, not so keen on the alloys but they could be a whole lot worse.

Good day out, a bit different and I really think this is the way forward for car shows - certainly for me anyway.


Have to be honest. I was a bit disapointed with it. There were some nice cars there but the vast majority were modernish VWs and there just didn't seem to be that many people about. Certainly from a traders perspective it was a waste of a day for various reasons - more of which later.

I do like the idea of the show though and hope it succeeds - in five years this could be a very big, very good show if the promoters persevere with it. This weekend was the first time it had really been done - they did hold it last year but the weather was terrible and that killed it. They did say it probably wouldn't happen this year but must have changed their minds. Spoke to a few other traders who hadn't really done much either.

Not a bad show, could but good in a few years though.

Well, after moaning about Bromley, I still decided to go. The attraction of possibly the biggest collection of classics in the south and its easy to get to location swung it for me. The weather held out and I have to say I had a good day. I took photos of about 400 cars - roughly about a third of classic in attendance.

Trigger had a neat spread of cars in his thread, so I'll only post a few select ones now and maybe a few more later on.

Usual trawl of car park fodder:

Then a selection of show cars, including the usual heavy Ford content:

Posted Image

Posted Image

This limited edition model is said to be the last Cortina Huntsman in existance - they made Escort versions in the same colour.

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

I did't think they actually made these - I know the mk1 Mexico was made as an estate though.

American - or maybe Canadian spec Cortina.

Yep, they're not very well made hence the lense always eventually falls off. Was given a brand-new indicator for my Rover, few days later the lense fell off.

It's a 1302 Rallye. I raced one at Retro Day in the C4. I can confirm that they're faster past 55 mph, annoyingly. I got a decent start off the line though.

At this point I just dropping back, way past the power band in second. I shifted up into third and he slowly pulled away. Says a lot for how crap the power to weight ratio of the Citroen is.

Tenious link to Simca racing and an excuse for me to show the results of my efforts on sunday at Thruxton. Glad I went, instead of watching the collosal failure of the England football team. it was certainly more exciting. I took a tripod this year and was rewarded with a better percentage of decent shots.

Very tastefully finished golf.

This won one of the races. the owner used an Imprenza as a tow car and despite the weight of the Dolomite, trailer and spare tyres it made rapid progress on the back road from Andover to Newbury.

I saw this race last year, but this year suffered from mechanical issues.

Thanks minimad5. Quite enjoyed snapping away - pretty much filled up a 4gb card! Hopefully next time I'll find a better vantage spot - i would have prefered to have had cars come towards me.

Here's a selection of car spotted in London.

Posted Image

Always thought these were great looking cars, pick up conversion looks pretty convincing.

Posted Image

Looks a lot earlier than the plate suggests - maybe the owner retro fitted the chrome.

Posted Image

Posted Image

Always a few of these hanging around - when i was kid during the early 80's we occasionally travelled into London and I always remember seeing loads of these tough cars.

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Italian registered capri.

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Nice early transit.

Posted Image

Don't know much about pre war American cars, but this is neat looking car - love the headlamps.

Posted Image

Posted Image

Bizarre Japanese manufacturer infamous for using exisiting Japanese cars and styling them to look like old jags. They did several versions of these cars - this one is based on the early 90's Nissan Crew - kind of a purpose built taxi. Other versions are considerably less restrained in their styling.
