Easy seeing there’s a Bentley Driver’s Club event up North somewhere this weekend. Saw about 5 beauties this morning on the Kingsway in Dundee. Only managed to photo two.

The Western Isles Classic Car Club were en route to the Fraserburgh Rally tomorrow and stopped in Elgin, where I happened on some presumably visiting the motor museum.

Some nice vehicles including a couple of Audi Quattros so I parked my A5 next to one to compare the cars 34 years apart.

Spent this morning at JLR's Mk 2 Jag open day, a convoy of 11 or so came from Switzerland.
You could buy an e Type Evocation for 275000, but I'm not that keen on them. :?

A DeLorean at dusk. In the car park at a Divine Comedy gig at Inchyra near Perth last night.

On the M54 this morning at 4.45 heading East .
In convoy , both with European number plates and LHD
A caramel coloured Opel Kadett, lowered with a full roll cage in nice condition, closely followed by a mint metallic dark purple BMW 3.0CSi in mint condition . The BMW looked ready to race but I could not see inside .

Both cars looked very tidy indeed


Blessed are the Cheese makers

Better to be an hour early than 1 minute late

My neighbours Ford Anglia "special". It looks like an Anglia but now has a fibreglass body, ladder frame chassis, full roll cage, big fat tyres on the rear and a Cosworth producing 320BHP, it also has a little red button that fires the nitrous. Spins the wheels in 3rd gear :mrgreen:

Our Local Classic Car Club meeting Saturday, this was parked up - had a nitro bottle in the passenger side.
Shame I didn't see under the bonnet.

Some sort of old European Ford. Similar to a late 60’s Zephyr. In Argostoli today.
