A Busy Black Swan breakfast meet. Jan 2022.

Post by Taff50ish »

Hi all,

So I had forgotten about this breakfast meet till first thing this morning when it hit me, it was the second Sunday in the Month. So I set off a little late to get down to this and I'm glad I did, what a turn out... So I got down there and the Marshall said I might need to park in the wet field!!! Ekk!!! But then said to have a little drive round to see if anyone had left. So I did and luckily as I pulled round the corner there was a big 4X4 leaving, leaving me a nice big space next to the Capri's Nemesis!!!! The Opel Manta!!!! Oh dear... Luckily I really like these and one of my mates had one when we were growing up... I do remember how good these were... What do you recon???

Another pretty quick Euro here for you...
ImageEuro V Brit a by jon taylor, on Flickr
NO, Not the Metro!!! (Rover 100???) I did my driving test in a Metro like this with BSM all those years ago... My foot covered both the Brake & Accelerator at the same time, so kept stalling it.... But the examiner realised and I got a pass!!! Phew!!!

Great pics again John :)

OLE still looking good :cool: I still remember seeing it forsale online when it had 19k miles on it and the price it was advertised for :)

I do like an old Triumph and the Rover P6. I had Stag back in 2003, my first taste of classics although it was a pretty unreliable piece of crap. Saying that I would still like a well sorted one!

Having had the newer Mustang, you can't beat the older american muscle cars, and in hindsight maybe that's what I should have had albeit getting used to LHD again :drive:

In the late 80s I test drove a black Manta GTE Hatchback (I often used to drive around dealers on a Sunday afternoon asking to test drive something I fancied usually with no intention of buying :lol: ) as much as I liked it and wanted to own it, it didn't go as well as the XR3i that I had at the time and left me underwhelmed so I left it.

:cheers:

Great photos as always, John.
Your Capri is looking as stunning as always, the usual bucket of water has worked wonders after your recent exploits!
It looks like you've discovered a brilliant meet here, I can't believe the high standard of cars that make the effort to attend in the middle of winter. That Silver Ghost must have attracted a lot of attention.

Andrew.
