Lots of my pictures... quite a few interesting - SEE PAGE 3

LATEST: Goodwood Festival of Speed 2015 - http://www.automationgame.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?p=76965#p76965

Hi guys,

This year I've been to quite a few shows, and taken quite a lot of photos. Few of the albums can be seen here:

Now, this thread would be worthless without some example pictures!

If you like what you see, please feel free to take a look at the rest any maybe repost your favourites in here. The Classic Motor Show happens in a few days, so I hope to have a ton more photos up from that. Also, I should mention, I am no Killrob, I just do this because I like the cars, I'm by no means a pro photographer.

If you want to subscribe to my photostream, also feel free, and cheers for looking. :)

Yeah, it's an old Kit Car that you could get plans for to build from marine ply, with the back glass bit having it's own aluminium frame.

Re: Lots of my pictures... quite a few interesting

Been to some more shows this weekend, so have some new pictures. :D

First was Pride of Longbridge, so a lot of British stuff:

Second was the Practical Classics Restoration Show, where I didn't get too many pictures but still managed some interesting stuff. Excellent show too.

Personally, I think the strangest thing there was this, a Tarpan 233S:

Hmm...how is the Tarpan a weird thing? There used to be one parked on my street when I was 7. Rarer today, but not THAT rare of a sight.

Re: Lots of my pictures... quite a few interesting

Outside of Poland, they don't really exist, at all. This one was brought back by a guy from Practical Classics magazine. (Excluding Greece/Iran, where it was apparently sold.)

Re: Lots of my pictures... quite a few interesting

I have found one picture that I did like a lot, I shall explain why.

https://www.flickr.com/photos/102973208@N06/9904137926/

This - the Mercedes 230 E. Nothing special, you're right. The thing is, this is the first car I consciously remember driving in, it belonged to my grandfather at the time. His Mercedes was of brown colour, the engine had 136 hp and when my grandfather brought me home, I was allowed to climb on his lap and steer up the driveaway, which was a huge deal for me. I was 4. Also a very nice car, very german though.

This show is hosted by MG, so about half of it is just MG. And for all their flaws, I really like the MGF. :roll: At least one of them was showing signs of head gasket failure on the day though, good old K series. :P

Nothing special as it is, but sometimes the boring unappreciated stuff is the good stuff. Similarly, my earliest memory is being sat in the back of what I later found out was my parents' old 1985 Toyota Corolla 1.3 GL (this probably explains a lot :P). I quite like crappy cars. A lot of them go along performing their function of getting people from A to B faultlessly, then are scrapped when they get old. For me, that's part of their charm.
