  • Car Show

    These were taken at the annual All British Car Day last Sunday. At this time of year in NZ there are many car shows, when well-groomed vehicles come out to be seen. There were 300-odd British cars, motorcycles and stationary motors on show, here are a few:

    MG, with an odd-looking photographer in the reflections:

    A closer look at the underneath:


    3 Armstrong Siddeleys, probably Sapphires:


    Rolls Royce:


    Oh, and some Minis, ours the red one in the centre:


    Panos are fun; one man appeared 3 times here!

    As you see, it was a lovely day, enjoyed by many, and raising funds for the local ambulance.

        Interesting to see enthusiasm for British cars over there, some lovely shots here, I especially like the MG.
        Very nice to see some sunshine too!

          Nice shots indeed, at our shows it is usually the raindrops that show the high polish off

          Is that a genuine Clubman front on your mini, or one of the aftermarket fibre ones. It looks genuine to me
          The picture tells the story, great when you have a bad memory.DW.

            It is a standard (original) 1979 BLMC Mini Clubman which has done 91,000 kms / 57,000 miles from new. The engine has been rebuilt but is still standard 1000 cc. Its non-original parts are the spotlights, minilite wheels and flaring kit over wheels. It's loads of fun, and is the only car in our garage that needs a tray under it . (Details from my husband, who drives the Mini into the garage then jacks it up to push it sideways into the corner until next outing )

                These are great Rosemary - and I loved looking for your wandering gentleman in the pano!
                I really enjoyed this set.

                    Looks like it was a great day out , nicely captured. I really miss my Mini Cooper, wish I'd kept it. I wonder if you can trace what happened to cars like you can trace family history? Definitely like that pano, there are a few duplicate people when you look, and the guy next to the orange mini has lost a foot! Good fun looking though.

                      Great set of images, love the pano, you should have changed the shirt colour or the hat even just to add some more fun to the image.
