Classic car show details. Quiz!

OK, it's a long time since I went to a classic car show. It turns out that I have owned many of the cars that are now called classics. They even had an Allegro owners section.... (no I didn't own one of them)


OK. See how many of these little details you can recognise...


1



2



3


4


5


6


There you go petrolheads..

Pete

PS, if you are worthy enough I have another 6 or 7 to test you with :-)

Good answers.

Yes, an e-type with the bonnet open of course. A Rover 90, A TR6 and a Standard 10.

A Ford Cortina GXL with peeling vinyl roof (whatever became of vinyl roofs) and finally a Lancia Fulvia 1.6 HF I believe.

Re: Classic car show details. Quiz!

Quick guesses
Hilman Minx
Triumph Stag
Ford Corsair
thought it was a Mini but there's no bonnet gap so it's not?
MGB
?
?
The last two are very familiar but don't have time to rack my memories as late for work!

Re: Classic car show details. Quiz!

4 looks like my old Morris Minor

2 looks like the filler cap off a Jag E-type

1 a Hillman Hunter

and I would have said 7 is a side view of the forward hinging device on another E-type bonnet (paint work looks the right colour too)

Re: Classic car show details. Quiz!

Number 5 for me in the second set is a little disappointing. They haven't sourced the correct headlight for the vehicle.

Re: Classic car show details. Quiz!

7" round headlights? Come on Pete. They could be any car in the world made before the 1980s!

The E-type was easy, the rest a bit of a mystery
