Earls barton classic car meet

Recommended Posts

Just got home after an unscheduled stop to fix a Sunbeam Tiger with a dodgy fuel pump :shock: Many photos to sort now and yes I did spot the bASe looking rather out of place. This was my favourite:

And here's said Tiger before it disgraced itself. Fixed now and hopefully well on its way home.

Stanza looks purdy. Wtaf is a new MX5 doing there though?

There was a lot of modern stuff that wasn't in any way classic and didn't deserve to be there. Even a 64-reg Vauxhall Insignia in the show field for some reason! Also, a ten-year old Goona still in working order is now officially a classic - see photographic evidence below

^ Goonas are the equivalent of Renault 20's in the late 1980's. They're all falling apart, they're being broken at a rate of knots and in around 25 years time, a tiny group of people on the internet will track down the few remaining cars and try, with limited success, to make them work reliably.

 

Edit: Great photos above. Mk1 MR2 looks lovely as well. Has a tall cat peed on the base's passenger door lock?

Loooob. The lock was perilously close to seizing. Washing it is also illegal, so it's a catch 22.

 

My favourite car of the night? The signal orange Capri. ðŸ˜

It is a nice meet up this one......nice mix of cars and you don't have to look at the ones you don't like.

 

I saw the quicksilver Maxi too....looks even better in the metal.

 

Had a chat to the proud custodian of the base..........and I noticed it got papped a few times too.

 

I saw Mr Six in the distance but he vanished.....tried to guess which car he would have but his fleet is too big for my memory so I didn't have a clue.

This was in the car park for some reason but was far more deserving of the show field than many of the things that were there

There is a 'breakfast' version of this on Sunday 21st May............about 9 until 1 I think.

 

Facebook flyer mentions bacon butties, coffee and live music.

 

I've promised to tidy the garden up..........and this isn't far away from the tip I use so might pop in with the truck!
