Black Swan April 2022. Cracking meet....

Post by Taff50ish »

Hi again,

I hope you're all keeping safe n well out there. So having had a very busy couple of weeks caring for the folks and at work too. I decided it was time to hit the road again... So off down the Black Swan for some much need stress busting!!! I won't go into my Viscous fan coupling, which wasn't!!!! :roll: :roll: :roll: Needless to say, next time I'll do the basic checks I thought I had done!!!

So lets kick off then and I had to park in the Field......... NO!!!! :crying: :crying: :crying: Thankfully it was reasonably dry and if you kept moving, not tooo bad!!!

So this time I'm keeping it random, this is as I walked down the field to the coffee area!!! And some cracking motors here....

Image20220410_094325 by jon taylor, on Flickr

Image20220410_094337 by jon taylor, on Flickr


So then we got to a really nice E Type....
Image20220410_094354 by jon taylor, on Flickr


Lets stick with the E Types for a few then... Hows about this beauty???

Image20220410_094757 by jon taylor, on Flickr
I did have a pic under there, but can't find it now.....

Then yet another!!!! Series 2, sometimes frowned on, but what a car!!!
Image20220410_094444 by jon taylor, on Flickr

So then there was this Porsche parked next to the E Type
Image20220410_094431 by jon taylor, on Flickr

Image20220410_094446 by jon taylor, on Flickr
Did Porsche still put the 'lead weights' in the bumpers on this model??? :whistle: :whistle: :whistle:

So if you like your Porsche's, you'll probably like this pic then!!! I know theres a name for this kit, but I can't remember it... Andrew???
Image20220410_094654 by jon taylor, on Flickr

So I recon we'll finish with the Porsche's on this note!!! Can't get much better I recon!!!
Image20220410_094459 by jon taylor, on Flickr

So we'll move onto the...... Urm!!! Want-a-be Porsche's!!!! Hows about a Beetle or two!!!
Image20220410_101312 by jon taylor, on Flickr

No, OK, the Campers then....
Image20220410_101507 by jon taylor, on Flickr

And a Bank job get-a-way....
Image20220410_095104 by jon taylor, on Flickr

Some people didn't rate these early SD1's too much. However, I loved them!!! The small dash binnacle, choke lever in the style of a mini hand brake and that amazing V8, 3500cc..... I used to chauffeur in one of these in the 80's and loved it.... The day I gave it back after that summer and got back into the Chevette.... Thats when I stepped over to Fords!!!
Image20220410_094937 by jon taylor, on Flickr

Hi John,
fab photos as always, looks like you must have had an amazing day with such a great turn out.
I think the 911 is just known as a flat nose.

Looks like a good mix of cars which is what you want, and you have taken some pics of what I call 'proper classics' not the more modern ones we drive :cool:

Morning Andrew, Andy,

Yep, it really was a cracker of a breakfast meet was this one. The good weather certainly brings some amazing cars out to play. I also noticed in my sleep deprived way, I called the Cortina a MKVI.... Doh!!!

Well chuffed you enjoyed looking through them all. Cheers for now...

Super pics, I enjoyed looking through those. Especially like the SD1, just something so special about those. And the Porsches too, it's a shape you just want in a car. And I always like to see that Herbie! Nice American cars, always head for those when I see them. Thanks for posting the pics.
