Well at long last I have found a multi car brand group of like minded boys and girls to join, bonus it's new and local to me and they are hands on too so perfect.
I went along this evening for a first meet and I think it's for me - there were 4 Plus 8's and a 4/4 there but I didn't declare an interest in them smile

Tired 4/4

Very tired Plus 8

There were a couple of modern Astons there but nobody was interested in them.

There was a beautiful old Bristol and an original Lancia Delta Integrale there LHD with less than 10,000kilometres on it and showroom standard fabulous.

Wonder why both Morgans have the V-S crossed flags under the grille? ..... usually associate them with Triumph Heralds where I think they refer to the Vignale design house in some way.

K

Ps are they 'tired' or just 'well enjoyed' ? 🙂

Pps .... they're both wearing dip-converters too so maybe the drivers have some connection?

A few more - I chatted to the guy with his 1.8Rover unit in front of his Mini for quite a while he's got eight in all ! lovely guy.
The front including power unit rad is on four bolts and a multiway plug. He introduced me to his mechanic responsible for the conversion similarly modest Devon guy.

Looks like a nice eclectic group .... good to see 'purists' and 'modifiers' getting along and sharing a common aim.

Yes I think that is the difference for me - they all just love cars whatever they are and whatever state they are in, just a comfortable and relaxed place to be. Nice old Steam Punk Viva there too you know the quick one. Not a bottle of polish or microfibre to be seen grin2

I'll ask about those flags, I did notice them and the only commonality I could spot is that they had both been to Le Mans at some stage, as I said I avoided the owners as that is not the part of the club I'm particularly interested in exploring immediately having had one for 19 years smile

There was a very special immaculate Minivan there with twin webbers and possibly a supercharger on it. It was obviously newly completed as they were over it like a rash but I shall explore it next time around. Great to see the owner looked to be the right side of thirty so a really good sign.
Lots of nice bikes too but just a brief glance this time while I took the car scene in.

Yes perhaps well enjoyed would have been more suitable..you are quite right.

p.s. I have seen and exchanged waves with the Bentley on a previous visit to Kingsbridge along the coastal road whilst in the Morgan.

p.p.s. Quite a few young people showing their Mini's and Willy's jeeps so a really good sign. (There are quite a few of the ex Operation Tiger Jeeps still functioning in our area.)

At a guess a third of those looking around were youngsters of driving age.

Thank you George I'm glad you liked them, I did think last night that you and Keith would enjoy the mix too having broad tastes.

There was a big Healey and an E type there too plus the compulsory Caterham and Beach Buggy all necessary parts of the colourful mix, 90 cars in all in a very small town square.
There was also an immaculate Mini Moke in red that had left before I got a shot of it for Graham.

They posted a picture of the supercharged Minivan this morning it won a prize of a bottle of polish, so I was wrong in my earlier claim wink the attention to detail was truly stunning.

And this memorial a few metres away at the end of the quay just the other side of the pub.
