No point going to these shows without having a good look around so normality is a dump and run approach

I love the scrambles, such a lovely eclectic mix of cars. Spotted quite a few familiar faces today, Jethro Bovingdon, Jonny Smith, David Richards MBE, Ian Callum. My son and spoke with Julian Thompson, really lovely chap..

Really great day today, first time attending and would certainly go again. The weather certainly helped! A great turnout and a really well organised event.

A couple of pictures below whilst I edit some of the others;

Rep-tastic with plastic trims on steels and everything - a few years ago they were bloody everywhere now only a car shows

I have come to the realisation, towards the end of my 4th decade on this blue marble, that there is as much to be gained from the nostalgia for the dreadful cars of one's youth as the exotica normally found at shows.

When we were 17, one of my mates got to drive his dad's brand new G-reg 1.4 Cavalier company car and it seemed so good (it had 5-gears for heaven's sake) when the rest of us had to make do with our mum's one-litre Metros and Fiesta etc.

BMW Z3, essentially.
Saw that when it was leaving. Was confused as well that clears it up. Hard to tell which 250's there were Real or recreations made by GTO Eng.

There were quite a few replicas on display yesterday and also spotted a number of Pistonheads stickers and recognisable cars, such as Larjammer's NSX.

Enjoyed a pint at Wriggly Monkey, where I can be found regularly on a Friday evening, the food trucks were a bit disappointing though as everything was fairly samey.

And a metro 8R4

I'm intrigued by this. Is it a typo, or something I've never heard of?

As I snapped it I said to my mate Will 6R4 - he wandered over to look at it and caught me up and said it was an 8 banger in the back therefore it was an 8R4

If it’s not I blame Will biggrin

Hard to tell with the 250's the only way to know if replica or not is chassis number. There were a fair few Jap cars. 2 R33's and a MK4 Supra I think I saw as well.

Great venue a d event.

Drove up in my Vette. 200 mile round trip in a 7.0 with side pipes, my ears are still ringing.

Nipper followed up in his 63 Galaxie 427 toploader.

Part Two of my potato cam shots

Haven't seen one of these for a long while Renault 4



Looking at the back something triggered my spidey senses



Yes that would be it (complete with the backing film - weird!!!)



Well in that case I think I'd better do a few other ringmeisters

Batmobile



E30 M3



Have another with race livery - the 80's font on the plate makes my eyes go weird now



I still have a real itch to scratch when it comes to TVR's



This one was a bit incontinent (I didn't do a scratch & sniff test)



Have a lovely old TVR which didn't have leak issues



Moving back to a German flavour - lets have a M1



Of course I needed to pair it up with a 1M

(was talking to a guy near it and said I just don't understand why the M2 hasn't weakened prices - he said I know it's why I bought an M2 because the 1M was out of reach)





Wasn't going to post this one as BM had already posted it - "All Agro" in lovely order



So instead I'm going to post an Austin 1300



Now for something completely different "swallows and ............" The green one in the middle is owned by my old boss from years gone back - he's had more Amazons than I've had Senators....



Loved the plate on this - shame it was badged as a Honda



I always thought Gulf painted cars looked great - trouble with these three was they were all different shades - none of them matched the oil drums either



I'll finish off with a shortie

It began with the inviting interior of a Toyota Century, owned by PHer 21st Century Man (previously Balmoral Green)





A tasty Testarossa in some shade of anthracite





This Zagato Vanquish(?) shooting brake costs a cool £790k, with 99 made.



I sat in this DBS and made broom broom noises. Come to think of it, I don't know why I didn't just ask him to fire up the engine. I would of brung it back. Honest.



A rather lovely Lancia coupe.



A Lancia Aprilia



How do I know? The Marque and Model name were embossed within these lenses!



WTF is this? I don't care, I love it.





I would love for someone to verify the colour of this R107. It looked too metallic to be original. Nevertheless, my guess is Pine Green.



A very nice interior



I don't believe that it's possible to get enough interesting shots of the detail of the Ford GT. I didn't take a photo of the shocking loosening of the stitching in the passenger seat squab bolster!







Angry birds, anyone?



Possibly the most mundane colour of any E39 M5, anywhere. With a black/red interior too...





Now this was rather exciting, to my eyes. DVLA has it registered as a 1957 Standard 2.1L.







Whatever it was, it made me want to jump in and drive it, as did the carbon bodied DBS earlier.



A Rambo Lambo Militaria





I don't recognise the bloke, but let us know if that's you!



The size of the spare wheel hehe





A beautiful Bristol. One for tog.


Can someone verify whether these alloys are the Gordinis from a Renault 5 Turbo?



Looking at the photo, the dash to axle ratio on this is ludicrous. It looks as though the Lancia Giulia is back to front.



Zagato... Vanquish(?)





The seemingly flawless finish of a Danish ZENVO





It resembles a Decepticon, it this guise









Finally, my car next to Stegel's SL500.

Have you anything to share about it? Why is it in the pre-90 area... it looks quite modern. What's all the paraphernalia on the roof? I presume a tent and a zombie survival kit...
