Darts Farm Classic Car Show, Topsham

Post by Brooksy » Sun Jun 16, 2019 3:52 pm

Went to a local car show today. It's only a small show and around 100+ cars turned up. A good mix of old and new on show. Thankfully, the weather was mostly dry if not sunny with just a light shower or two.
Just the three cars under our XROC banner (XR3i cabriolet, Orion 1.6i Ghia and my laser). AndyD and his wife called in and said hi too. :woot:
Here's a few pics from today.

Hi Nige,
Sorry to let the side down, but the forecast was pretty hopeless :(

Was good to catch up again, and yes some really nice cars there despite the weather. Yours is looking great :cheers:

:cheers: Andy.
No doubt if yours was there, it would have attracted huge praise.
Nice little show but it was lacking something. Can't put my finger on it.

Good to see your Laser getting a good airing Nige. Never seen a Zodiac estate, unusual car & in great condition. Like that American woodie too. Estates are getting really popular lately.
Cheers for posting these.

Cheers Rob. Yep the Zodiac Estates were converted by Abbott I think. Rare indeed. The huge Woodie is a Ford Country Squire and needed it's own field to park in :lol:

Hi Nige,
That looks like a great little local show. Sometimes these smaller shows can throw up some real surprises with rare and unusual cars.
Your car looks fantastic, as do the other XROC cars.

Andrew.

:agree: Andrew, small shows can attract owners/cars that wouldn't necessarily bother with the larger ones.
