Default My latest car show pics...

Thought these photos might be of interest...

They were taken at a classic car show just a mile down the road from my place in the village of Horndean, Hampshire. It was a damn good show, great turnout, friendly and inclusive atmosphere, and free entry....

Austin A90 Atlantic:



A selection of pretty Austin-Healey Sprites:


A well-used '56 Chevrolet Pick-up:


1961 Chrysler New Yorker:


A '50s Daimler Majestic:


For the Mopar muscle fans out there.... A 1968 Dodge Coronet R/T:


....and a 1970 Dodge Challenger:


A very charming Ford Model T Pick-up:


A Ford Fieldmouse, apparently one of only three survivors:


This 1977 Ford Mustang II Ghia was in stunninbg condition, and probably the best I've seen:


A circa 1956 Morris Isis:


A lovely 1973 Saab 96 V4:


A circa 1909 Stanley Steamer in action:


1929 Triumph Super 7 with a Ford Model A:

A 1964 Austin A60 Cambridge:


1972 Buick Skylark:

Really enjoyed the shots! You get to see some cars we've rarely if ever heard of over here. Very good stuff!

V-TEC yo!

It can't be a Honda.... I don't see any utterly useless hood scoops or tripple bookshelf wings. Not one NOS sticker, or any other HONDA go fast mod.

Nope. Instead it has 0.6 litres, 2-cylinders, 38-hp and a top speed of 78mph!

Those pics look great, Simon. Thanks for giving us a taste of some cars we seldom see in the States. Looked like it was a pretty excellent show!
