I've decided to take a leaf out of Trig's book and create a thread to stick my show photos into, starting off with the rather drizzly Greenwood exhibitions do a couple of weeks back.

Looks to be the same tatty 'Vette posted on here recently, I was approached by some old boy who asked why this was worth taking a photo of to which I replied "It's the shitest car here" :mrgreen:

A potential future Barrettmobile which seemed to be attracting alot of "crap car" type comments from mainly kids and women who had wandered over from the fete opposite- MONGS. The old giffer in the red top did own the Ferrari btw, wonder if he attracts many birds?

^MR2 GTS Turbo, or someone trying to make theirs look like it is. TRD and Tom's also sold those snorkel kits.

The Dodge is making eyes at me. Definitely. Not least 'cos my mate had something similar years ago, and it was the most hilariously pointless car to ever own.

Gwan gwan gwan CJ! You know you want to! :wink: Shame about the colour or I could promise to have it off you in the autumn should you decide you don't like living with it... but I can't bring myself to consider a beige car, not even a Dodge Diplomat. I can say that, having had a Plymouth Gran Fury which is essentially the same car...

Yeah, I've got a massive lob on for that Bond... It's a shame the general public are so ignorant to its charms, but it never really stood a chance sandwiched between an Escort Mexico and a new Ferrari!

That beigey gold Marina 'koop' is doing a good job of re-profiling my trousers, too. Genuinely nice looking cars I reckon and a great wheel choice. YUM!

Managed two local shows this weekend, starting off with a small gathering at Dunstable Priory.

This was proper scruffy close up which seems unusual for one of these nowadays and looked ideal for spending a soggy summer in.

This one family owned A60 was up for grabs, looks clean in these photos but actually had been well bodged up and most of the panels needed attention, well worth doing though. £2500

Never buy a car radio of this man unless you want to be ripped off by £20 for one that doesn't work. :evil:

 

Also never buy a used Triumph 1300 of this man...

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. 8)

 

As soon as we arrived I was confrinted by these two sexy Italians which were just heading off.

If I remember correctly this was on ebay not too long ago, glad to see it hasn't been plate raped.

No idea what this was all about, as if owning an over restored Tartan reg MGB roadster was prickish enough.

Great photos Dan, I wish i had gone to this as i had nowt to do yesterday but i couldn't be arsed to drive the Cortina down!

 

You should have done, there were only a couple of Cortinas there from memory, 1 MkIV and 1 MkIII ! Unlike Escorts and Capris, of which there were very many....

Might well consider it for next year. Is it just a case of turning-up?

 

As a spectator, yes and it's free entry but donations are encouraged. They give you a little sticker to wear which prevents you being hassled by collection buckets more than once and you can move freely between the sections safe in the knowledge that you've chipped into it.

If you want to take a car there to display, you need to apply a while beforehand as with the Bromley Pageant and you may have a deadline of at least a couple of weeks before the event unless there is still space at a late stage which is unlikely. It's reasonable though, only about 6 quid I think.

Great show, not been before, spotted Seth and his beige estate, met EL by a shiteworthy R6 and saw all variety of interesting vehicles. It has all the variety you would expect at Bromley but on a smaller scale and less regimented. Still took me about 5 hours to see everything as by being there early on, I had to keep returning to the same sections later to see new arrivals. Took over 800 pics :shock:

Would definitely go again next year!
