It looks a big car as you can just see the roof of the car towing the Cortina.

Went to my local Hospice Spring fete today, first time they have invited Vintage and/or other cars to display. I think there were almost as many cars there as Stalls.
I wanted to have a word with a Triumph TR6 Owner, but I suddenly realised the car was gone. With his bonnet up, I noticed his battery had a small Red Plug at the top edge. I'm willing to bet he has recently changed the battery and not removed the transit bung from the vent.
He's at risk of over-pressurising his battery with gas while charging; I'm guessing he doesn't go very far in it.

So there were quite a few modern vehicles, and I thought the Recovery Truck with the compacted lump of scrap car on the back was taking the mickey...

Jowett Javelin 1949 - I had quite a chat with the owner, he's not had it very long...

Excellent. I'll try to get to Avoncroft. Been meaning to go for a while, and a line-up of pre-war Austins is a good excuse!

Ok, it's probably been done to death before......but I can't be bothered to scroll through umpteen pages to find out :D.

My son was performing today in his first 'gig' as a Morris Dancer so my wife and I had to go and see him and you can't go to something like that in a Honda Jazz can you? Yes, so it's my Moggy but unfortunately my son had to dash off somewhere else before I could get the rest of the gang together for a group photo.

I did think of captioning it as a 'Spot the oldest Morris' competition but I thought there might be too many entries :D.
