Hi all,

It's easy enough to take static photos of our old vehicles - but do you have any "action" shots of your car, lorry, motorcycle etc? This was prompted by spotting a photo of us with little Dodge taking part in a road run a year or two back, captured by a spectator.

Ooh, yes! I've plenty to offer; I'll not swamp the thread straight away, but here are a couple to start with:

My 1922 Star, at the start of a 120 mile road run in 2005:



My 1958 Lancia Appia Pininfarina coupe on the 2004 Nottingham Classic Tour:



and my current Austin Seven on a local run out:

Little Dodge following a lesser vehicle on a road run in 2017. The two Austin 7s in the background also belong to an OCC Forum member.

He's very famous now and made up for the decades he was locked away in the dampness.

Heres an image from the Flying Scotsman Rally where I navigated with my brother driving the Lagonda. We broke a rear spring on the tests but it was great fun. Image not crisp but I'm sure we made the biggest splash of the rally. Smile (links to another page)
