Haynes Breakfast Meet September 2018

Postby Andrew 2.8i » Sun Sep 23, 2018 12:29 pm

Good Afternoon,
As promised here are my highlights from our recent visit to the Haynes breakfast meet. In no particular order...

A bit of an oddity, apparently the last car to be designed to be driven from a wheelchair, the Elswick Envoy

A genuine single seater racing car, converted for road use. For sale if anybody fancies a nice practical family car.....

I hope you enjoyed looking through these photos. I've got plenty more of the sort of mundane scrappage scheme survivors that I find really interesting, but bore everybody else. I thought I'd spare you this time! :)

Cheers,
Andrew.

Some more great pictures Andrew. Loved that mildly modified Nissan 300ZX & the red Fiat coupe looked like a cross between a mk1 Cortina & Sunbeam Rapier, never seen one before. Big fan of that Dodge Challenger & that Black Camaro sounded fantastic.
Cheers for the extra pics :cheers:

Hi Jason,
Yes, there was a brilliant variety of all sorts of cars.
That rat car with the guns is a Toyota Corolla. If it was featured in a film, I can't imagine that it would be a very good one, maybe a low-budget Mad Max pastiche :D

Sorry I said Nissan I did read Toyota as well but very strange , can’t say I have ever seen the film but looks like it was for a film roll . Looks like a good turn out of cars . :cool:

This meet is highly recommended if you ever find yourself in the area on the first Sunday of each month.

Nice pics Andrew (other thread too) but you have to wonder what the MOT man thinks when that Corolla turns up!

Thanks Peter.
When the MOT man has stopped laughing, I imagine that he'd pass it straight away. I know I wouldn't want to upset the driver whilst staring down the barrel of those guns!

Great to know Andrew. Exeter isn't too far away so I'll have to come along one month.

Ps, your 2.8i looks fantastic.

We are hoping to get a few forum members to go in April or May next year. Hopefully you'll be able to make it along then. Andy lives in Exeter too, so if you come along you might be able to convoy along with him and any XR club lads that go.
I look forward to hopefully seeing your beautiful Laser in person.

Andrew.

:cheers: Brilliant.

I'm so pleased I took the plunge and bought a Capri. She may not be mint or a V6 version but I'm proud to be the current custodian and do my tiny tiny bit in keeping this marque alive.

Look forward to meeting you and your steed next year then. :wave:

It's good to have another enthusiastic member on the forum who is helping to keep the legend alive. :D
I would highly recommend joining Capri Club International if you haven't already.
