Runnymede April 2022. A Cracker!!!

Post by Taff50ish »

Hi all,

Well another weekend and another breakfast meet. Thankfully the Petrol Heads have this meet back on at Runnymede, after cancelling last Months thanks to idiots leaving like, well idiots!!! Plenty of footage on YouTube of these…. Anyway, enough of this, so a nice early start this morning and I was there quite early, or so I thought, but there were a few already in, so let’s start off with this.

Image20220424_091241 by jon taylor, on Flickr

So now I’ve cracked off with the Capri’s, lets stick with a few more…. Here’s a really nice Laser…

So then I decided to go and get a coffee, as it was still early and cars where still arriving, so I wandered onto the Cafe, I got my Coffee and wandered back out to see this looking straight back at me….. I somehow wandered straight past this….
Image20220424_092301 by jon taylor, on Flickr

Absolutely stunning….
Image20220424_092318 by jon taylor, on Flickr

So onto this really honest 1.6 L, my first Cappa was one of these in Red and no where near as many extras…
Image20220424_092718 by jon taylor, on Flickr

Then I spotted this beauty pulling in….
Image20220424_101028 by jon taylor, on Flickr
Image20220424_101459 by jon taylor, on Flickr

Then a brilliant Laser. I’m starting to like these MKII Grills on the MKIII…… Humm!!!
Image20220424_112556 by jon taylor, on Flickr
Image20220424_112604 by jon taylor, on Flickr

Followed by another cracking Laser… Ops, same one from earlier, sorry!!!
Image20220424_091613 by jon taylor, on Flickr
Image20220424_105943 by jon taylor, on Flickr

Then as I thought this was all for the Cappa’s, I saw this one pulling in!!! What a stunner, all the way from Germany???
Image20220424_100416 by jon taylor, on Flickr
Image20220424_101249 by jon taylor, on Flickr

So that’s all the Capri’s I saw while I was there. BUT!!! More to come at the end of this…. So lets stick with the Fords for now and what about this one…. Sounded the Dogs did this…
Image20220424_113227 by jon taylor, on Flickr

Got to love a Granny!!!
Image20220424_110145 by jon taylor, on Flickr

And a Fast Ford….
Image20220424_103011 by jon taylor, on Flickr

There where also some stunning Escorts out to play today too….
Image20220424_091730 by jon taylor, on Flickr

From the Fox & Pheasant the other week…
Image20220424_095256 by jon taylor, on Flickr

And in White….
Image20220424_095332 by jon taylor, on Flickr
Image20220424_095303 by jon taylor, on Flickr

And back to Black…
Image20220424_095256 by jon taylor, on Flickr

And a kitted out MKII RS2000…
Image20220424_095228 by jon taylor, on Flickr

And the final Escort….
Image20220424_120127 by jon taylor, on Flickr

I always like the MKIII Cortina’s, this sounds the boll0cks too…
Image20220424_093848 by jon taylor, on Flickr

Back to the beginning of the Cortina’s now…
Image20220424_093144 by jon taylor, on Flickr

Next ones…
Image20220424_091648 by jon taylor, on Flickr

These do look good on the Minilites…
Image20220424_091722 by jon taylor, on Flickr

A couple of nice Fiesta’s…
Image20220424_095731 by jon taylor, on Flickr
Image20220424_095634 by jon taylor, on Flickr

So the Estates then…
Image20220424_091907 by jon taylor, on Flickr

So how about a different Resto-Mod then….
Image20220424_113326 by jon taylor, on Flickr
Image20220424_113339 by jon taylor, on Flickr

So while we’re on the ‘modification’ page. How about this!!! What is it??? A Frankenstein car, or a Spitstein, or a Franken-Fire??? Your guess is as good as mine, but what a cracker!!!

Image20220424_110030 by jon taylor, on Flickr
Image20220424_100328 by jon taylor, on Flickr

So while on these ‘Modified’ motors, how’s this Beetle then???
Image20220424_095841 by jon taylor, on Flickr

Maybe a tad uncomfortable….
Image20220424_095851 by jon taylor, on Flickr

But here’s why you need those seats…
Image20220424_095901 by jon taylor, on Flickr
I believe a Scooby STi…….?????

So while we’re on the Fast rear engine cars, how’s about a few Porsches??? This was very nice…
Image20220424_095812 by jon taylor, on Flickr

Got to love the old Targa’s with the Coffee table sticking out the back…
Image20220424_113009 by jon taylor, on Flickr
Image20220424_112955 by jon taylor, on Flickr

Another coffee table….
Image20220424_112739 by jon taylor, on Flickr
Image20220424_112751 by jon taylor, on Flickr

No coffee table, but tons of room inside….
Image20220424_094351 by jon taylor, on Flickr
Image20220424_094421 by jon taylor, on Flickr
Love the wire basket centre console….

More motors hanging out the back… Perhaps not quite as fast, but double the fun I recon???

A Brilliant Pick Up….
Image20220424_092751 by jon taylor, on Flickr

Another great Pick Up….
Image20220424_120200 by jon taylor, on Flickr

Still got to love these, even though they did help with the demise of the Capri…. (at the time!!!)
Image20220424_110112 by jon taylor, on Flickr

And a MKI
Image20220424_113233 by jon taylor, on Flickr

Here’s a pic I was laughing at as I took it… Could you get anything bigger, nest to anything smaller???
Image20220424_094638 by jon taylor, on Flickr

Lovely little motor…
Image20220424_112846 by jon taylor, on Flickr

Next to something a little more extreme….
Image20220424_112843 by jon taylor, on Flickr

A Lister XJS…
Image20220424_094645 by jon taylor, on Flickr

Let's go a bit random now…. So how about a nice Volvo???
Image20220424_113235 by jon taylor, on Flickr

Or a Pink Cadillac…
Image20220424_111544 by jon taylor, on Flickr
Complete with Skull splitter up front!!!
Image20220424_111552 by jon taylor, on Flickr

Or a very well sorted TR4a
Image20220424_110132 by jon taylor, on Flickr

And keeping with the TR’s… A cracking 6…
Image20220424_091805 by jon taylor, on Flickr

And another Triumph….
Image20220424_091843 by jon taylor, on Flickr

Or a nice old MG????
Image20220424_093344 by jon taylor, on Flickr
And a view from the cockpit….
Image20220424_093413 by jon taylor, on Flickr

Just keeping with the Brits a little longer….. Another MG…
Image20220424_092754 by jon taylor, on Flickr

Or a nice Jag and TVR.
Image20220424_092804 by jon taylor, on Flickr

Lets stick with the TVR’s for a couple then… This old Griffith was stunning…
Image20220424_093534 by jon taylor, on Flickr
Image20220424_093551 by jon taylor, on Flickr

I’ve lost my other TVR pics, so lets stick with the Open Top Brit…
Image20220424_095312 by jon taylor, on Flickr

And onto the Mini’s… A very nice nearly standard car…
Image20220424_103127 by jon taylor, on Flickr
Image20220424_095123 by jon taylor, on Flickr

And not so standard…
Image20220424_095112 by jon taylor, on Flickr

Another pic here which had me smiling… Do you ever see a car and think to yourself, Humm, too much wing…..
Image20220424_093645 by jon taylor, on Flickr

One of the stars of the meet for me this one. A very tidy Audi Quattro Ur…
Image20220424_094815 by jon taylor, on Flickr
Image20220424_101008 by jon taylor, on Flickr

OK then, Americana time… This is a cracker to kick this section off….
Image20220424_112916 by jon taylor, on Flickr

This has some of the ‘Best’ flame work I’ve seen!!!! I hope the pics show it….???
Image20220424_112659 by jon taylor, on Flickr

Very nice…
Image20220424_095052 by jon taylor, on Flickr

These are big bruisers still…
Image20220424_093133 by jon taylor, on Flickr

No Americana section is complete without the Mustang’s….

Image20220424_091516 by jon taylor, on Flickr
Image20220424_091508 by jon taylor, on Flickr

Phew, I’m getting writers cramp…. I’ll have to end this soon now. But first, a couple of customs….
I love this and what a colour!!!
Image20220424_094615 by jon taylor, on Flickr

And an orange one. I need to see if I can find the pic of the exhaust exit under the car… It really was something else…
Image20220424_094721 by jon taylor, on Flickr
Found it, unfortunately this does not show it in all its glory!!! This was a pice of Art…
Image20220424_094745 by jon taylor, on Flickr

And the last Rod…..
Image20220424_113347 by jon taylor, on Flickr

So as I said at the beginning. A few more of the Capri’s then. I got chatting with Shaun (Sorry if I’ve misspelt your name if your reading this…) And once a few cars had left, due to the fun and games with the Exit, we put our cars together, so 1 became 2….
Image20220424_114252 by jon taylor, on Flickr

Then 2 became 3…..
Image20220424_115427 by jon taylor, on Flickr

This was a stunner, all done over the last 2 years through COnVID….. Original Ford X Pack and wheels, the lot…. Amazing!!!!
Image20220424_115519 by jon taylor, on Flickr
Image20220424_120154 by jon taylor, on Flickr

Well, this was my Sunday morning… A great break away from things and really enjoyed this one, get chatting with people too!!! I hope you all enjoy looking through these pics!!! Cheers for now all,

John…

Hi John,
It looks like you had a good morning at that meet, and thanks for uploading so many amazing photos.

I'm guessing that Spitfire has something more tasty than the standard engine under the bonnet?

Andrew.

Hey John.

Stunning selection of photos mate. This really looks a cracking breakfast meet and on nice clean grass and concrete. None of that dusty dirt track shit !!! Looks very well organised does this and a good plot of land too.

What a great array of classics mate. Some beautiful motors. I love the modified ones too.. The owners really do make remarkable jobs of these. Love that Yellow Escort Mk2 Estate. What a motor. Gorgeous ! What a showing of Capris too John, especially the Pintos. I agree about the mk2 grills. They do look very nice. Glad you had a great morning and what weather you had too.

Ps That lacquer red 2.8i Special looks rather lovely too... :lol:
