Hi,
Here are some photos from the QS meet last Sunday. To try and keep it fresh, I've restricted the photos to the interesting cars that I haven't seen for a while, if at all. I hope you enjoy looking through them.

In time-honoured tradition, the Fords are first up, and where better to start than Rob's stunning car.

The last time this 1.6GL was at QS, I didn't take much notice of it.

ImageFord Capri GL mark 3 PLG626V by Andrew 2.8i, on Flickr

This time, however, the bonnet was open. I'm not an expert by any means, but this doesn't look like a pinto to me.....

ImageIMG_2051 by Andrew 2.8i, on Flickr

This 2.0S was at the CCI Nationals last week.

ImageFord Capri 2.0 S DDF861Y by Andrew 2.8i, on Flickr

I've broke my own rule here, as I posted a photo of this last month. I think it's worth seeing it again, even if it's just for the shirt the bloke in the background is wearing!

ImageFord Capri 3000 GT Crayford YXC674K by Andrew 2.8i, on Flickr

A pair of rather nice Mexicos.

ImageFord Escort 1600GT Mexico JXC293H by Andrew 2.8i, on Flickr

ImageFord Escort Mexico YTW747L by Andrew 2.8i, on Flickr

Very nice, and rare, Twin Cam.

ImageFord Sierra Sapphire RS Cosworth G593TYX by Andrew 2.8i, on Flickr

Ferrari Dino 246GT. According to the Hagerty valuation tool, these are worth a cool £271K in this condition. Look at how tiny it is in comparison to the Bentley!

ImageDino (Ferrari) 246 GT 146MPH by Andrew 2.8i, on Flickr

Some nice E-types.

ImageJaguar E-Type TSV785 by Andrew 2.8i, on Flickr

This one is the V12.

Rare, but less face it, ugly Reliant Scimitar SS1.

Mini 1275GT.

ImageAustin Morris Mini 1275GT MNE761W by Andrew 2.8i, on Flickr

My favourite shape of 911.

ImagePorsche 911 SC BUY388W by Andrew 2.8i, on Flickr

This BMW must have had tens of thousands spent on it, including having a well-engineered 4.0 V8 fitted in it.

ImageBMW 1502 4002 UNM206R by Andrew 2.8i, on Flickr

Early Triumph 2000.

ImageTriumph 2000 HOF680D by Andrew 2.8i, on Flickr

Shelby Daytona Coupe replica. It's good to see a variation on the usual AC Cobra kits.

ImageAC Cobra Shelby Daytona Coupe Replica MVG730C by Andrew 2.8i, on Flickr

Mark 1 Golf GTi. This is one of the earliest 1.6 models.

ImageVolkswagen Golf GTi BLB296Y by Andrew 2.8i, on Flickr

I've never seen one of these before and may well never see another, it's a JDM Toyota Century.

ImageToyota Century G119ELC by Andrew 2.8i, on Flickr

Delta Integrale.

ImageLancia Delta HF Integrale Evoluzione J596NLJ by Andrew 2.8i, on Flickr

It's been a long time since I've seen an Uno turbo as nice as this one.

ImageFiat Uno 1.4 Turbo ie H707FPD by Andrew 2.8i, on Flickr

Plymouth Duster.

ImagePlymouth Duster SCW446L by Andrew 2.8i, on Flickr

Not really my thing, but nice none the less.

Saab 900 Turbo.

ImageSaab 900 Turbo 16v H298XYJ by Andrew 2.8i, on Flickr

A pair of unusual Gilberns. An Invader estate and a very rare GT.

This Avenger is typical of the sort of usable classics you see a lot of at QS.

VW Type 3 Variant.

ImageVolkswagen Type 3 1600 Variant MPX739J by Andrew 2.8i, on Flickr

It's amazing to think that people still use 66 year old cars.....

ImageChevrolet DeLuxe YVL640 by Andrew 2.8i, on Flickr

An almost as old Velox.

ImageVauxhall Velox JFX420 by Andrew 2.8i, on Flickr

Hopefully we can beat this line up of Calibras in September.....

ImageVauxhall Calibra TDZ7499, R209TAU, C13FEN and L296BRY by Andrew 2.8i, on Flickr

This drove to the meet as is. The real Police didn't seem to mind though, and fair play to them as they tolerate a lot and could issue a lot of fines if they wanted to.

...and finally, back to the star of the show! :D

Hi Andrew, great pictures, it's amazing the turn over of cars at this meet, there's some in your pictures I didn't see on the day. Come to think of it, we didn't manage to see the photographer of these fine pictures either :) .
Pity about the grey Capri ;) but thanks very much for including it :D .
Cheers,
Rob

Hi Rob,
A very fine car you've got there, it's even worthy of two photos!
As you say, it's a pity we didn't catch up with each other. I was waiting around for you for ages, that must have been some breakfast you had! :D

Hi Nick,
I agree. It seems to be quite a rare colour for a Capri too.
