Hi Andy,
Great photos, thanks for uploading them.
The Supersport is, er, super....I look forward to hopefully seeing some of the cars at Haynes.

Thanks Andrew.
Haynes September meet should be a good, and hopefully everyone can make it as planned.
Will have to arrange to meet somewhere close to the museum so we can all arrive and park together.....?

Yes, good plan.
What time do you think would be best for meeting up?

Andrew.

07.30 latest I reckon, as it will be busy if weather is good, don't want to be there much after 07.45

Have moved this to the Haynes meet in Events.

Hi Andy,
That looks like a good show in a great setting. A show at the seaside beats sitting in a field all day!
Did you take your car? I didn't see it in the video. Other than those beautiful Capris, my "best of show" has to be the gorgeous Testarossa.
Great photos, thanks for taking the time to post the link...... :)

Don't encourage him Andrew, he's cheating again :D
I agree, great setting for a show. Weather looked excellent too Andy :cheers:
Spent many a time on that beach as a child, my father had a tourer, we used to go there quite regularly.

Hi Andrew,
Yes we had 4 cars on there yesterday, mine, XR4i, Mk4 XR3i Cabby and Supersport.
Supersport is on the Torbay Old Wheels Club (TOWC) https://www.towc.club/riviera-classic-car-show-2018
The back of mine is in the background of one pic :wave:

It's a good show with around 400 vehicles, hot day but a nice breeze too :cheers:

I like Paignton....We used to holiday there from 1980 to 1985, and spend hours on the green playing cricket with other holiday makers :D

Found this from a show we attended nr Taunton last Sunday, where we had a stand of 11 cars made up of XR and RS Fords :D Unfortunately not in this video :( But a very good event!

Hi Andy,
That looks like a great show with a good variety of cars, including the obligatory green Focus.......

Several modern cars, including some kit cars, but no cars from the XR club stand. What's going on? :) 11 XR and RS fords would have made an amazing display.
I like the Escort Mk2 and the green Cortina Mk3, as well as the red Aston Martin V8.

Always a good show Andrew, with lots of nice cars spanning 50 years or so :)

We had a great selection of 80's cars from Fiesta Supersport and Mk1 XR2 to Sierra Cosworth.
