Recommended Posts

Hello again, MOR show photos for you all, Yesterday i took a drive to the BL show at Ferry Meadows in the Acclaim with some mates, It's the first time I've been and to be honest, I think I've found what i've been missing out on in my life!

 

It's a fab little show chock full of shite old cars, perfect!. Anyhow here's my photo dump from the show.

 

This Marina pickup was spotless.

This was quite honest, over 100k on the clock too.

I loved this sign, it was in the Autojumble which it's self was very quite (although a bit pricey at times!)

This 105E had been in a barn since 1988, it was fairly solid but it's had some shoddy repairs in it's time.

This genuine 827 was used in the Bill after it's retirement from the force, 160k on the clock and washed 3 times a day when it was in service, it's still unrestored!

Nice work Trig!!!! Any sign of that blue & white Marina koop with the hatchback conversion and the sills made (badly) from reconstituted banana peels?

 

I think this might be the one but it's been restored?.

This Morris Oxford was amazing, Converted to 2 door, all metal made, even the bumpers are cast iron!, Running on a Maestro floor plan and a 2.0 Perkins diesel and weighing in at a hefty 2 1/2 tons!

I saw these three in the car park. The DS was stunning.

Yo Trig, that 'Ital koop' is not the one I had in mind, for a start its stil got a 'boot' and I think from having seen it on the bay that that one has a Dolly Sprint engine. Great find nonetheless!

 

That flipping hot rod thing is extraordinary, 2.5 tons? Imagine a Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit LWB powered by a flipping Perkins Prima, must be a total liability on the open road!!!!

Great pics and thanks for sharing. I was in the area driving back home from harwich after a holiday but couldn't justify to family I really needed an extra day to see some bl tat.

I saw that DS at the side of the road with lots of water around it so had popped somat.

That marina coupe / hatch has disappeared from the scene, I hope someone is restoring it.

Fingers crossed I'll be there next year with my recent marina purchase. .

Here's a couple more that I took - Trigger's papped most of the good stuff already.

 

RONG MODEL M8 etc.

MG3 - first one I've seen in the flesh.

Probably the oldest car there.  I overtook this on the way home - it wasn't going very fast.

Standard and not-so-standard MOs.

This line-up must constitute approximately 110% of the total production of 3-litres.

YES!!! That's the kiddy

It wasn't there this year, sadly (at least not that I could see).  It had been there on the two previous occasions I went (2 and 3 years ago) and appeared to get even shonkier as time went on, so I was slightly disappointed to miss it.
