|A selection of Triumphs at Bill's funeral.|
The week ended up a bit more upbeat with the regular classic car breakfast meet at White Lion Antiques having a bumper attendance, probably due to the glorious sunshine.
Plenty of Triumphs were there amongst the huge variety of other Classics, Customs and Exotica.
|Looks familiar, oh yes it's mine !|
|Nice to see another GT6 at the meet. This one has only just been put back on the road after a major rebuild|
One car that caught my eye was a 61 Morris Mini Minor. This was the same colour and spec as my first ever car, Fiesta Yellow with Turquoise Blue and Grey Interior trim . This was a very unmolested original car. Mine started off like that but as was the way back in 1980 when I owned mine it was turned into a "Boy Racer" car with lots of all show no go "Go faster" mods! It was already an 18 year old car when I got it but wasn't really classed as a classic back then.

A few more of the cars and bikes there today, the best attendance I've ever seen, I know there have been over 200 cars there before so I reckon there were between 250 and 300 there today.
|This Elan Sprint belongs to Antonio, one of the Design Engineers I work with|
|This Lotus Elan was up for Sale, bodywork needs attention but a very tempting project!|
|Modern but exotic enough to be at a Classic Car meet, a McLaren 650S|
|A Classic Ice Cream Van now seems to be a regular fixture, could be good next time I need to persuade the kids to come along!|
|Lotus twin cam in a MK2 Cortina|
|Cosworth Engine in a Mk2 Cortina, naturally aspirated through webbers rather than the normal turbo though.|
|This lovely Mexico belongs to Kevin our local TV aerial man. I didn't know it was his until we got talking about classic cars when he came to fix my TV aerial earlier this year.|
|If you come from my generation then Sports Mopeds like this Suzuki AP50 are real nostalgia. This was one of the bikes to have when I was 16, I had to make do with an old Garrelli Tiger Cross.|
