Sweet!

And I'm not just talking about that last "equipage". Even if they where "just" taking Dad's car for a spin, it's great to see that they can enjoy hanging around with a bunch of old farts - I mean the cars, obviously...

February edition, under the rain :roll:

None of the pics below are mine, since the cam's battery went flat after just one shot ... and the spare battery was dead as well :evil:
Fortunately an auxiliary photographer could shoot the few cars that had gathered this morning - thanks Pierre-Yves !! -

All 35 pics of the day here: https://picasaweb.google.com/english.re ... vrier2016#

The noggin started reasonably dry ...

Image

Image

Image

Some started to raise the bonnets ... and that's when rain joined the party :roll:

Image

Image

By the time Fred Hermand arrived with Brownie, it was a steady rain, so that Dyna would not come out of the car :lol:

Image

Image

Last arrival on this morning - when everyone else was gone - was a friend of Fred coming down from Paris
to pay us a visit ... brave man who drove 50 miles in his Spit under the rain just to miss the event :oops:

Hello Ian :wink:

Oh no ... this one belongs to another (not yet running though) scimitarist ... Philippe Bacot-Sevestre who had bought a GTC 18 months ago
(see the December '14 report) and promised that he will start to work on it this year :wink:
So we may have a GTC popping up at the rencart once in a while :mrgreen:

My TVR is blue - what a lack of originality for a change :lol: - and has not been running for a long time, it will be next to Purple on the garage's agenda !

Cheers,
Fred

Thought I'd better update the thread for you 8)
The march meeting saw yet another Scimitar, James Mason's rather tasty Coupé, plus Fred's Caterham Seven.
And a Jaguar in the correct colour.
Amongst many others ...

... indeed James' coupe was the star of the day, and it had to suffer a shooting session for 'Le Gros Plan' :lol:
Thanks for being patient James :mrgreen:

All 260 pics of this day - including 158 on the coupe :shock: - are to be found here:
