What a great guess :lol: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yTVGONelp_k

I spent the day at a local show with Rover P4's, and plenty of other classics including a very nice 1974 Capri 1.6 XL :cool:

It was great to have my first Mr Whippy in 2 years too :D

I've heard it called Focus Fair for years :)

As you say good to get the Capri out whatever! There was a Mk1 Ford Granda/Consul with a Cosworth engine at the show I went to on Sunday, it sounded more like a V8 :cool:

It's a pity that the big Ford shows don't attract many classics these days.

:agree: Andrew.

Saying that I don't want to drive a minimum of 3 hours to get to one.

Some classic owners don't gel with modern/modified car drivers and vice versa, maybe that puts them off attending same shows :?

I don't dislike the ST, RS and Mustang etc, but seeing hundreds in a field isn't my idea of a good day out. Most are modified and all much of a muchness and that's why I won't do meets now as too much I'm not interested in!
