Towcester Racecourse Car Meet, 9 June


Recommended Posts

It's been a very long time since I was able to post a show report but one actually happened yesterday :) A pleasant fairly small event at a nice local venue I hadn't been to before, organised by the people behind the Earls Barton meets. Quite a lot of modern supercars but plenty of variety among the classics too. Some show staples were conspicuous by their absence though - no Morris Minors, no TR7s and only one Mini!

Enough waffle, on with the photos...

Nice building that someone dumped an old Maxi in front of

Not shite but gorgeous and definitely going in my fantasy garage

Is this the ex-Practical Classics 'Generally'?

Something quite menacing about this scruffy black Granada

Ridiculous Caddy

And finally, bizarre Japanese-spec 205 GTI automatic

Felt so good to finally be out at a show again.
