    Went to a country show today at Bank Hall which is currently under renovation.
    Some nice classic cars & tractors which I thought people may like to see.

    I love the Jaguars. Had an '85 XJ6, but never any of the classics.

    Hi Fossil, yes the Jags are beautiful, took pics on my phone and ran out of memory :confused:
    there were loads of old bikes and some fab old Austin Healeys which are my favourites.
    Will have 2 take a camera next time.

    Yeah, I like the Healeys as well...and the Triumphs...and the MGs...and, and ;lol

    I completely restored a '51 MG-TD back in the mid-1970's. Sure wish I still had that beautiful little car.

    I had a '45 Ford Jeep. Ford & Willys built to the same specs. Couldn't tell one from the other. Mine had a little telltale script "F" stamped into the dipstick, of all things. It was fun, but had some bad rust and I didn't own it very long.

    Hey, thanks man, but I am already taken.:p

    Love the classics. I find it interesting that the classics over there were much smaller than the average "classic" on this side of the pond (sans a few). Shows a completely different approach to travel, even years ago.

    Ah well, plenty more fish in the sea. :)

    Yeah I like the old American cars too, particularly like those very wide, open top types with all the chrome and fins on the tail.
    Not sure what they're called but would love to do coast to coast in one of those.

    We call that a Cadillac. ;)

    Antique car shows from across the pond are very interesting. Thanks for the pics!

    '51 TD (Bright red, complete with hollow steel frame, filled with 2x4's, and the Lucas electrical system.... ;sick) belonged to a lady I used to work for, was her Dad's car. Fully restored, looked awesome. Getting it running for one ride a year was always interesting.

    I like me the Jaguars, MG's, Triumps, even the ol' Sunbeams.....but when I think of classic cars from 'over the pond', nothing compares to the classic Ferrari GTO's. Just listen to those V12's.......I get butterflies in my stomach when I see and hear those cars! Great pics, Billybonfire!

    Urban legend has it that on a trip to the USA, Mr. Ferrari was standing behind a v12 Packard when it started up. Fell in love with the sound and vowed to reproduce that sound with an Italian flair.

    I have always loved the classics, Jags included. Had a 1964 MK X for a short while and it was a blast to drive. Unfortunately, as a young lad the insurance was more than I could afford.
