Singleton Park Swansea

Post by Caprifan Rob » Mon May 06, 2019 2:42 pm

Came home off my hols this weekend & went straight to a classic show in Swansea. This used to be a big show but it’s getting more of a family fun day now & the cars are just a sideshow now. Still, there were 6 Capris there, all different models so made my day. All cars great to see, some i’d seen before & some I hadn’t.

Good morning out, bumped into friend Becca who was at Simply Ford & blew the engine on her Laser while up there. She’s getting a new one rebuilt & will be taking it to Brooklands for the 50th. Good luck getting it done Bec.

Cheers,
Rob

Yes, yesterday. She was there with husband Jonathan, they've got a spare 2.0 pinto & have ordered a new cam etc and will have to build it up ( in between extending their garage !). Hopefully they'll get it done in time for brooklands.

Hi Rob,
Looks like a great show and thanks for uploading the superb photos. 8-)
I was going to go along myself, sadly I've been too busy with some DIY jobs around the house. :banghead:

Glad I went, just to see the Capris. I'd say it was about a third of what it once was though. Nothing like it was when we saw you there. Done a bit of DIY since I got home, wish I'd taken another jacket now & braved the cold for longer :D

Hi Rob,
Thanks for the great photos.
Some very nice examples there (great to see the GT4 and Cabaret 2 models).
That Mark 3 Cortina is nice too.
Hope you had a good holiday too.
