The Stamford Car Show

7 posts in this topic

Went to the 14th annual car show on The Meadow today.

 

They had the usual suspects at the show, plenty of old English cars, the odd E-Type, plenty of XJSs (love them!!), just the one BMW 635 CSI, many Ferraris, the 2 Maseratis, etc.

A Merc forum group turned up too, there was a fantastic old Merc Coupe with newer internals like a straight six turbo, 5 spd auto box and slammed, but looked damn fine.

In another area were these 2.

Beauty and the Beast....

:roflmao:

 

 

 

 

Why does this forum twist my pictures?  :roflmao:

I was there too. Some really cool stuff but some utterly pointless cars too - Citroen Xantia - why?!

Pea green elan was pretty.

Yep, there were 2 of those Citroens I think.  Quite why, I will never know.

Of all the Citroens they could have had!!!!  :roflmao:

I suppose if I had a Xantia I might have some kind of perverse pride that it still exists. Hypothetically.

I can think of many nicer things to be perverse over... :roflmao:

 

It is a shame the Ashby Foleville classic car show finished five or so years back. :(

Maybe they were celebrating the Xantia's rallying heritage :grin::grin::grin::grin::grin:

You can't beat a decent Vanden Plas.
