I was at a local "festival of motoring" and took a few pictures. Anyone else like photographing cars?

I noticed the Waltham clock in this Silver Ghost.

And the seaplane mascot

The calormeter on this Lagonda

And on this Delage

That first car is nicer than most cars out there today... The dashboard is very beautiful.

Back when products were made with heart and soul and not consumerism in mind... :(

Agreed. I can see why someone would want a Rolls Royce when they were like that. Modern Rolls and Bentleys leave me cold.

nice old motors - personal bugbear of mine is when the owners of a modern Jaguar stick a silver Jaguar emblem on the bonnet. These old cars knew no better but a person tossed over a bonnet can be opened up by those tacky accessories. Should be an MOT failure.

A few weeks ago, at the Silverstone Classic, a handful of my favourite rally cars.

And a few laps of the circuit by Sir Jackie Stewart in a Matra, to celebrate 50 years since his first British Grand Prix win.

   it has nice lines,  much like the Pontiac Fiero.

There was something about hearing a Stratos approach through a forest at night. Although they were actually better suited to tarmac.

'Fraid not Deano :(

I've a Midget in the garage which I started to 'Do up' back in 2015 but then my knee went kaput so didn't get the thing ready!, Had the other knee done in June this year so hopefully, I'll be able to carry on the work needed to be roadworthy next year!! :thumbsup:

This is a virt that someone did for me with Mini type indicators, I'd already removed the big ugly rubber and iron bumpers!

Mgw74Yy.jpg

I'd started cutting out the rot below the headlight and filled the massive hole for the indicator (Going bumperless so they need filling and then drilling for the wire to pass through!)

Pzvn7l9.jpg jGqtbwj.jpg

Put a section of inner wing in as it was tinworm infested!! 

uqY1QgP.jpg

 

And plugged a small hole in the wing!

wwVxe7r.jpg

I can't wait until I can get started on it again!

Hopefully then i'll be able to attend the meetups!! :thumbsup:

Deano, I work at Forgemasters and at certain times of the year we are subject to things called Triads, This involves shutting the whole firm down (Everything electric has to be turned off) for up to two hours at peak times, If we don't then it's possible that the grid could go down, For any power we use we get charged something like thirty times the normal cost! :huh:

I can't see the grid holding up if everyone suddenly acquired electric cars! :hmmm9uh:

true, I am safe in the knowledge petrol will last to see me off this mortal coil  or to the end of my driving ability which ever comes first, but I am not in a rush to do either :biggrin:

Well Karrusel, They were supposed to be pipes for the petro-chemical industry!

How were we to know that pipes for the petro-chemical industry shouldn't have an eight ton breech?! :huh::hmmm9uh::laugh:

Nothing wrong with those pics, and anyway, it's always good to see some real classics. Is the one at the top a Vanguard?

For the first set I posted, I saw someone else taking closeup shots of grills, badges, facias. So I copied them and was quite pleased with the results. It's still nice to see the whole car, though.

Yep, I think that was a Vanguard, I can recall my aunty having one when I was a kid, She used it to work for a Taxi company called Abbey Taxis!! :)

A nice classy old Lagonda
