Boss 429 mustangs were only built in 1969 and 1970.

if that's a 1967 car, its not a real 429.
Well spotted, a schoolboy error. The 67 has a different front end as well

hi Nickol,
sorry, i have no more pictures. There are only a few film available, too big to upload.
this event was on three days. Classic car event was only on Saturday and Sunday.

Here is a link to a clip from Hamburg Journal (not a permanent link, in german language (sorry))

https://www.ndr.de/fernsehen/sendungen/ ... 84572.html

but not all cars included

on Sunday we had 4 moggies (2-door saloon, 4-door saloon, convertible (from Jersey) Traveller from Denmark), Rover P4 100, Jaguar XJ Typ, Daimler Sovereign, Rover Vitesse, MG TC, Austin Cambridge, Bentley

on Saturday MG B, Jaguar XK9 (not historic), 4 moggies (2-door saloon, 4-door saloon, traveller (standard rear side windows),traveller from Denmark) Triumph Stag, Rover P4 100, Daimler Sovereign, Bentley, Bristol

We drove 2 times a day a round trip (30 minutes) in which the cars were presented. Spectators could go for a donation in the cars. All proceeds went to the charity partner. In the end, we were able to hand over almost 500 euros to the charity partner
regards
Joachim

Currently on a mini-break in the Cotswolds and visited Bourton-on-the-Water so had to pay a visit to the classic car museum there. Would highly recommend it, by the way.
Also, there's a promotional green traveller parked up outside our Dr Vere hotel. According to reception, every De Vere hotel has one.

According to De Vere (Dr Vere with auto-correct :D ) this Moggy is started and driven 'round the block' once a week...... but looking at it closely, I don't think it has seen much action for a month or three!

Just spotted what I believe is a Frilford Grey 2-door in the Holbury/Backfield area, didn't catch the reg but I believe it began with X, could belong to Beaulieu Motor Museum?

Went over to the A47 autojumble today, I wasn't there long and it was pretty busy.
Here's just a few of the motors on display.

and just a few more
I identified this Trabbant by it's smell, I'm sure it must've had the original 2 stroke engine!! . The owner only recently brought it over from Berlin. It's been recently fully restored.

Just spotted a Trafalgar Blue 4 Door on the back on a spec lift tow truck/pickup turning off Chester Road onto Seymour Grove Manchester,
I think the first digits were BOO or DOO.
Looked to be in great condition.
Does it belong to anyone on here?
