First Outing of the Motor Show Banner

I've had it for years & it decorated the side of our stall rather well & fitted a treat, though it's bigger than it looks here. The whole thing looked rather splendid even if l do say so myself.

Yes, l have a couple & a white one too. There are a few flags there that people keep asking to buy but l won't sell. I keep buying more too. :LOL:
I've got a nice three yard Cross of St George pennant (stitched) which l'm very fond of. Naval flags are the best.
I'm still kicking myself for not bidding on a very large stiched Scottish flag a couple of weeks back at the Malvern fleafair. He only wanted £60 in the first place. :mad:

Here are a few of my favourite cars from the festival. Only one P4 keeping the Rover end up but l didn't photograph it. Was that wrong? :hmm:

This is Rich Moon's (Project Bruiser engineer) Fairlane 500 which l got a short cruise in around the field. It's a very comfortable beast of a car & sounds fearsome:

This Bristol in the same hands for nearly forty years. During ownership she spent a few years stored under a hedge but was then pulled out & returned to the road. Now running a Triumph 2000 or 2500 & O/D 'box.

The DS made a fine companion for her:

This looked extremely good value for £2600 & rather turned my head for a while. Henry & Sam make a good case for tooling around on old bikes & l find myself tempted though eventually forced my legs to carry me away:

Love the Sunbeam.
Thought Bristols had the sort of value in UK that would result in full restoration but the Triumph running gear would be about the right size, if not complexity.

It's a personal choice by the owner. He displays a short, weatherbeaten history of his ownership of the car which states that she may be painted one day but not by him.
That's obviously not the way he rolls. :)
