Hi
Re- Subaru BRATs;
We don't seem to have heard from Montbrehain lately.

Also I was behind a steam engine of some sort on the way to Chester yesterday afternoon, and a Farina Oxford / Cambridge or similar passed me last night. I've seen a couple of other older cars - one twice - that I can't identify.

Attended a 1940's event at the weekend, lots of very nice pre-war cars on show and some really good Military vehicles. Stand out to me was a very nice Black/Red Morris 10 (37/8 possibly) in a very workmanlike wartime guise.

A 1952 Bentley Mk 6 special, in a Le Mans supermarket. Apparently there are 50 people staying at the Hotel de France but most in modern cars. Sadly, we seem to be going the same way in the jDC.

Over the last 2-3 weeks I've noticed the corner of a lofty vintage saloon in someone's drive, partially hidden by a hedge. I did a quick look-up of its registration and it's a 1933 Rolls-Royce no less, there can't be many cars like that stored outside. There is a garage but I suspect the R-R may be a tad too tall for it.

I saw a dusty (but good condition) Triumph Renown on a trailer today locally.

Out in little Dodge today, we caught up (!) with this mighty Cadillac on wedding duties.

A short while after we happened upon the Caddy, we found this unusual little 850cc Fiat. I'm not sure that I've ever seen one of these in the metal before.

That Fiat looks very like one I saw in that same colour at Astle Park Traction Engine rally a few years ago.

I've seen a couple of older cars today, a purple MGB GT and a light green Mk1 Cortina, at Oulton Park.

Hi
These were on Blackburn Boulevard today.
Haslingden 2 was on display only but Darwen 39 was doing runs between Blackburn and Darwen so I came home on that instead of the service bus.

Coming into Darwen we followed an Austin Pearl (or New Pearl) with the roof down.

Hi Rick
That appears to be one of the earlier Spiders, they got rid of the plexiglass covers and moved the headlights forward later on.
