Classics in Cardiff (Ford cars) May 2018

Postby Andrew 2.8i » Fri May 25, 2018 3:25 pm

Afternoon all,
The Classics in Cardiff show is always well attended by a few Ford clubs. Here are photos of some of the Fords that were there.
Where better to start than the Capris?

Hi Andy,

I didn't realise that those cars were local to you, good on them for making the journey to South Wales!

The "POO" XR4i is a stunning car. If it was mine, it would have to give some serious thought to changing the registration. It's a difficult decision between keeping the original plate to maintain originality or changing the plate to something that schoolkids won't laugh at!

:sorry: Andrew they are from South Wales but make the journey to us once a year for the weekend. A really friendly bunch that help make up the numbers here :D

My car is only 2 letters from a POO :shock: A lucky escape (Would keep the original reg anyway) :D

Hi Jason,
Thanks!
No muddy wheels here, and no-one wheelspinning all over the place..... :lol:
This show always has a good turnout of Fords. As well as the Ford clubs, there are always lots of indivual entries. I find that the South Wales crowd are really appreciative of old Fords too.

Hi Andrew, can always rely on you for some great pictures (especially as I couldn't take any on the day.. Again). Was great to meet up again and look round your immaculate 2.8i. There were so many cars there, I didn't see quite a few in your pictures.

Glad I put sun cream on before going, my son did & still burnt :oops: :D .
Brilliant show, many cars there I hadn't seen before, always have a good time at this one.
Thanks for uploading them.
Cheers, Rob.

Hi Rob,
It was good to meet up with you and your boys again. Josh's BMW looked as stunning as ever.

Cheers Rob, this has got to be the best show in Wales and is definitely one not to be missed.

I should have taken a Ford colour chart to compare with Corey's arms, they looked like a nice shade of rosso red to me!

Very nice Andrew, with the possible exception of the slammed black truck. I always struggle to see the point in those extremes!

Thank you Peter! I agree with you about the truck, however, I thought I'd post the photo here to provide some inspiration for the impending lowering of Nick's car..... :)

Josh looked even worse, being there all day. When he took his sun glasses off he looked like Donald Trump with his white eyes :D .
