  3. Back on home turf for the annual midweek spectacular that is Harpenden Classics on the Common. This event always contains some spectacular chod and many rarities which makes up for the ridiculous amount of scene tosh in attendance, that and the high levels on CLUNGE walking about. As soon as we arrived I was confrinted by these two sexy Italians which were just heading off. 1982 Fiat Strada 65 CL by BMC Dan, on Flickr 1966 Lancia Fulvia Berlina by BMC Dan, on Flickr 1967 Commer Imp van by BMC Dan, on Flickr Beige Mk1 Escort is best Mk1 Escort 1974 Ford Escort Mk1 1100 L by BMC Dan, on Flickr 1974 Ford Escort Mk1 1100 L by BMC Dan, on Flickr GR9 for Bond villains. 1958 Mercedes 220 by BMC Dan, on Flickr 1977 Ford Mustang II by BMC Dan, on Flickr 1956 Simca Versailles by BMC Dan, on Flickr 1956 Simca Versailles by BMC Dan, on Flickr If I remember correctly this was on ebay not too long ago, glad to see it hasn't been plate raped. 1957 Austin A55 Cambridge Mk1 by BMC Dan, on Flickr Probably the only really interesting 50's Yank there 1954 Hudson Hornet by BMC Dan, on Flickr 1954 Hudson Hornet by BMC Dan, on Flickr 1971 SAAB Sonnet by BMC Dan, on Flickr "Got stance" etc. 1978 Morris Marina 1.3 SDL Coupe by BMC Dan, on Flickr 1978 Morris Marina 1.3 SDL Coupe by BMC Dan, on Flickr 1968 Citroen Ami 6 by BMC Dan, on Flickr 1987 Austin Montego 2.0 HL by BMC Dan, on Flickr 1987 Austin Montego 2.0 HL by BMC Dan, on Flickr

  6. I also attended this, one of the better shows I've been to in the Clacton area. I'll stick my photos up in a bit.
  7. Only this morning, looked undamaged so could have just broken down or ran out of fuel come to think of it.
  8. Has anyone in the Essex area had or know of a red Renault 6 that has been pinched? There was a shabby L reg example abandoned in a layby on the A12 by the big Royal Mail building in Chelmsford with a Police Aware sticker on the rear window. Registration started RLO iirc.
  9. "Retro Traveller" tax in full swing: http://www.carandclassic.co.uk/car/C310515
  10. That VDP came from a dealer near me who had it up for just under 6 grand, he must have ROFL'd his way to the bank when said deluded buyer came along. http://www.carandclassic.co.uk/car/C257539 Check out the high quality* photo skills on this Rapist! http://www.carandclassic.co.uk/car/C268854
