Morning all,

A few photos from Sunday's show at Cholmondeley .... highlights for me were the maroon Bristol and the rare Ashley 750, plus the black Bentley wasn't bad either Smile

There was a near identical Bristol 408 with me on Sunday so they must be getting common! I had no Gilberns though - Cholmondeley seems to have attracted 2! I like the veteran Vauxhaul Limo.

Thanks for the pictures!

Hi Paul
The red one above is a 410 based in N-u-Lyme.
The 410 typically has the full length double side trim and the grill tapers slightly in towards the botttom.
The 408 has vertical sides to the grill and one long and one short side trim

Rick, thankyou for taking and displaying those pictures! What a perfect cross-section of classics.
Would love the 6/110, open the bonnet once a year whether it needs it or not.

Hi
Don't worry about it.

408 to 411 mk4 were very similar, same basic body shape with generally subtle trim, lighting and interior differences.

I was just trying to give some idea of those differences.
With the more mainstream cars we have all had chances to see the changes over the years but even then we may not be too sure of just when they appeared.
