RROC National Meet Day 5

Wet, wet, wet.



That sums it it up.




The perfect day to stay in the covered parking and detail your car.

Unless you are at the side...



Reflect for a moment.





Perfect weather in the forecast for tomorrow.

RROC National Meet Day 4

Miscellaneous observation for the day .



One way or another.



Generation gaps





A 'TU' plated car and the owner probably is unaware...





Another 'TU' car. Yeah, that one again...



Openings..







Detailing.





The long & the short.





Big eyes.



Photo Shoots.



And this:





Yes, we were blinded by the light.



And suffocated by tyre smoke.......

RROC Meet Day 3

Not much to report today as I chatted to much and went to a seminar.
A really good seminar.



Early in the day a Phantom at 'Denny's'



And an early Silver Spirit with a Silver Shadow.
Good breakfasts in there....



Then I came across a Silver Cloud originally owned by a Northern Irish coal merchant (Davidsons) still sporting it's Belfast registration number.



And also a fine pair of Silver Cloud IIIs.



But, me the Silver Shadow/ T fan.
I fell in love with this 1974 LWB.



And even polished the car for it's new owner (Jim C).



Oh dear.....Is that not a Commandment. 'Thow shall not covet thy neighbour's Silver Shadow'
And on the day of my wedding anniversary.



Might I get in trouble...?

Blue MPW

Back in 1981 in London I saw and photographed a rare 1964 MPW 'Chinese Eye' S3 Benltey.



Parked just by the Admiralty Gates at the end of The Mall beside Trafalgar Square.



Well, today at the RROC National an S3 RHD in dark blue turns up.....



RHD, blue, a GB sign on the back but this one has a Webasto roof.  

The 'GB' sign is a bit wonky so could have been refitted on the right  hand side after a repaint?



The Webasto roof...? Done after 1983...? I doubt it.



Too bad...
I really thought I was onto something, unless someone can prove me differently.

A few shots from today in Indiana.

Car wash first thing in the morning.



Posing up in the hills.







Fluke sunlight opportunity.....



Bug splatters galore.



Scenic.





Cloud III



Splendid brown Silver Shadow



Lonely at the top....



And modern.



To not so modern.



Some amazing cars here already.
