The Traditional car Club of Doncaster had a car show at Elsecar yesterday, so I just had to go as it is about 2 miles away 8)

Only two rovers there - Sparky parked on a slope



And a nice P5 3 Litre. Had a good old chat with the couple in here, who also have a classic caravan they tow around with it.



Some real vintage stuff including the 'Stanley'



A cracking little Singer Gazelle

And MG - in perfect condition

A whole bunch of proper minis

This - ermm Aston? Lagonda?

A lovely little Austin Seven

And some bycicles - with engines :?:


I learned some new stuff about P6s

My engine wasn't bored out to 4L. As the original Buick was a 4L but Rover sleeved it. So my engine had just had the sleeves removed :shock:

And 4 pot P6s were fitted with rear drum brakes, it was only the V8s with rear discs :shock:

(smile and nod :LOL: )

Great day though, had a lot of fun.

You do get some right d*ckheads walking about at car shows
Down my way , at Brooklands for example , you'll get some bloke talking loudly to his mate about the Ferrari he's got in his garage
And it always amazes me that the mate goes along with it
