Many thanks to John Leslie and helpers for a great afternoon yesterday at his pad in west Bucks for the Bledlow Classic Car Display, alongside the Church Fete.

Around half the roadworthy Sabres in the UK attended, all lined up here:

Well done Chris;
That was quick, I haven't downloaded from the camera any of our pictures yet!
For the record, I believe the attendees were: Tony & Jackie Heath, Richard Wos, Andy Burfield, John Leslie, John Valler, Philip Needham & Chris Gallacher, but not necessarily in that order!
An excellent day out.
Philip.

You beat me to it! :D I was going to post a photo of this sent to me by a friend who is a relation of John Leslie and knows my interest in Scimitars/Sabres. I believe there were about 90 cars on show. Well done on getting about half the roadworthy Sabres in the country there!
