Black Swan March 2022 Breakfast meet. Just...

Post by Taff50ish »

Hi all,

Finally got out to another breakfast meet today. It was a very late start though, but I did manage to chuck a bucket at the Cappa before I set off for a change this time... :xd: :xd: :xd:
So lets get into it then, as I say, I was very late to it today and I guess most had already left by the time I got there, but there where still some tasty motors there..... Lets start with this Escort...

Lets keep with the Escorts for now... As ever, you got to love a MKII RS2000....

And a view of the field... In a way I'm glad I was so late, otherwise I might have had to park in here!!! :shock: :shock: :shock:
Image20220313_102952 by jon taylor, on Flickr

So in the background there is a very rare car to me.... Here we go...

As this is actually a Subaru, its really nice to see this, as all I seem to see are the Toyota versions....

So a couple more highlights from the field... A nice SL...
Image20220313_103048 by jon taylor, on Flickr

And a cracking Beemer 3 series...
Image20220313_102941 (2) by jon taylor, on Flickr

Also caught this leaving the field... Got-a-love this!!!
Image20220313_102743 by jon taylor, on Flickr

A nice little line up just back in the car park...
Image20220313_102732 (2) by jon taylor, on Flickr

And for you sharp eyed peeps, yep, that is a 2 Door at the end... Here we go...
Image20220313_102843 by jon taylor, on Flickr
Just simply stunning!!!
Image20220313_102825 by jon taylor, on Flickr

OK then, a few more Brits for you... Lets kick off with the Estates again...
Image20220313_102900 (2) by jon taylor, on Flickr

Image20220313_102625 by jon taylor, on Flickr

A back to non Estate cars then... Just a little bit sporty...
Image20220313_102725 by jon taylor, on Flickr

The colours never really show too well in the photos unfortunately...
Image20220313_102716 by jon taylor, on Flickr

OK, something really sporty AND Sexy...
Image20220313_102434 by jon taylor, on Flickr

And again...
Image20220313_103439 by jon taylor, on Flickr

More every day...
Image20220313_103520 (2) by jon taylor, on Flickr

And now a round the World a bit...

Image20220313_102645 (2) by jon taylor, on Flickr

Image20220313_102544 (2) by jon taylor, on Flickr

A nice little pair...
Image20220313_102314 by jon taylor, on Flickr

And the Americans then.... It would be rude not to have one of these!!!
Image20220313_102636 (2) by jon taylor, on Flickr

But to find one of these, that's a bit special...
Image20220313_103404 (2) by jon taylor, on Flickr
Image20220313_103356 (2) by jon taylor, on Flickr

OK then, lets finish for now on the Capris then... Yes, there were more than just mine there...
Image20220313_102654 (2) by jon taylor, on Flickr

Then this Stunner turned up as I was getting ready to leave!!!!

Image20220313_103827 (2) by jon taylor, on Flickr
Unfortunately I didn't have chance to have a chat with the owner, as I had the folks in tow... Hence the reason I was late.... Dad broke 1 hip in Sep then the other in Dec...

But here's a pic for Andrew. A Capri & MR2 together!!!

Nice one John, some of us are still SORN!

I always liked the Mk2 1600 Sport. When I was 16 I would sometimes get a lift to work with a chap that had a S reg red one with 4 cibies on the front, always wanted one but it didn't happen :roll:

Great pics, enjoyed looking at those, thanks. Espcecially like the white Capri with vinyl roof, something about those roofs which are just so appealing. And the Herbie car, the film/TV cars are always something special to see.

Nice mix of cars! Do love the Escort Mk2 Sport!, probably rarer than most of the "sporty" escorts and in many ways the proper Mk2 Mexico?

Hi Andy, Lee,

Yep, defo something to be said for the MKII 1600 Sports, but this had been breathed on for sure!!! Still a great car though... SORN!!! How can you use it then??? :lol: :lol: :lol:

Hey Jason,

Yep, cheers, was hilarious getting them both in & out of the Cappa to get down there, but once in, they both commented on how comfy the ride was!!! I will admit to limiting my right foot somewhat to normal use though!!! :xd: :xd: :xd: But Mother took a tumble yesterday and now has 2 broken wrists to match dads 2 hips!!! :roll: :roll: :roll:

The White Cappa with the vinyl roof was a stunner for sure!!!! Really looked the part in the flesh!!!

Cheers guys, all the best till next time,

John....

Ironic isn't it John, our parents look after us for the first 16 years or so then later on we look after them.

Send my regards to your Dad and best wishes to your Mum :wave:
