To make a change from working on cars all the time I took some time out and took my nephew Connor over to the Enfield Pageant of Motoring. Unusually for a teen he's not into small hatchbacks with dustbin sized exhausts and rear body panels vibrating from boom boxes in the boot and prefers older cars instead. (Haven't got a clue where he gets it from!)
In fact he's even considering selling his 'modern' and buying a classic Mini. Good lad! It was a good day out and I met Steve Poulton and Darren Sharp over there too as well as some other old friends from my 'previous life' when I lived in Enfield. Apparently it took Steve over two hours to get home due to a bad crash on the M25. Luckily I had gone a different way after calling in to see Davemate, so I missed it.
Anyway, here's a few pics from the show.
A very rat look Ford Corsair with a 3 litre Essex V6 fitted.
A pair of Anglia estates copying Gertie's cream roof look!
A rare Volkswagen, but I have no idea what model!
Alan Mann coloured Lotus Cortina
An ultra rare Vauxhall PB Cresta estate. Even Google images can't find many of these!
Meeting up with old friends.
