I bet that sounds amazing!

Indeed!

Some pics from the latest Speed event, a hill climb. Nice selection of cars from a very tuned mini to a nearly new Subaru STi, big V8 Commodore, Mazda RX7, Westfields, a BMW 2002 with a Toyota engine, several MR2s (one turbo, one supercharged), and several Ford Escorts Mk1 and Mk2. Plus my little Lotus.

 

Edit: Sorry, tried using OneDrive for photos but it won't give me the correct url. Will find an alternative. Thanks to Photobucket for screwing up the internet.

Two good spots today, a pale metallic green Citroen DS in immaculate condition, and an equally smart Scirocco Mk2 in dark metallic grey.

I was up in North East Yorkshire today and saw the following....

In Malton at Malton Coachworks, A Studebaker Commander,

a fabulous looking low slung coupe in lemon with a black roof.

In the same yard were an E type FHC, An Anglia and I think, a Triumph Roadster.

In Pickering I saw an Austin Champ 'jeep' in dark military green.

Along the A170 is Thornton le Clay where there is a motor museum/salesroom.

I only had time for a glimpse as I drove past but it looks well worth a visit.

On the outskirts of Spalding this morning,

A C reg Rover 2000 in a nice 'Parchment' colour.

Elan bodyshells at a garage.

Later out near Holbeach a Blue Triumph Dolomite

parked in a front garden.

On my cycle round the New Forest this morning, I saw a whole gaggle of Austin 7s near North Gorley (near Fordingbridge).  And cycling across the old runway at Stoney Cross a WW2 Jeep  overtook me!

A red Ferrari 328 GTO on a D plate. It looks rather small next to modern cars!

Maybe it's my age, but that's what I call a proper Ferrari. :heart:

Spotted a Ferrari in the early morning traffic near Newark yesterday.

A fairly modern one, a 4something perhaps?

 

Today I saw a lovely Rover 2000, probably a V8 on a J reg plate,

in dark red with a vinyl roof just outside Scarborough, around midday.

An hour or so later a Jaguar XK120 or 140 FHC just South of the Humber bridge.

I drive a supermini (super....hah! that’s a misnomer - to our North American brethren  I suppose it’s a sub compact?) and I towered over it. What’s more I was more than keeping up with it with my 1.0 litre normally aspirated engine.

(then again we were in a traffic jam, so all those Italian ponies under his lid were no better than the French donkies under mine!)

I assume they only dare come out at night

Assuming they can get the lights to work.

 

I saw a lovely silver Maserati in Newark today.

From around 1962.

Something like this...

That was the first real Ferrari I ever worked on. I was so excited.  Went to pick it up and found out the car had a Roadmaster stereo installed. It was like going to a 5 star restaurant and being served cheese whiz on toast. Outside of that it was a fantastically great car.
