Brekkie time again

Another trip to the local Classic Car Breakfast meet this morning at White lion Antiques. Once again a bumper turn out. This time around the featured marques was lots and there were swarms of them. A selection in the pictures below.

You don't see many of these anymore, Lotus Vauxhall Carlton, a real wolf in sheep's clothing.

Very original Lotus Cortina Mk2

A bit lary and in bad taste in terms of decals in my opinion, this Essex Esprit. However, talking to Antonio from work ( a keen lotus fan and Elan Sprint owner) apparently this was how they came out of the factory!

I really liked the early Elan Coupe's there were a few there today.

Can't remember the last time  I saw a Lotus Sunbeam

OK so Lotus didn't make a Lotus Anglia, but if they had, here is one!

Antonio's fabulous Elan Sprint

It's that Lary Essex Esprit again

Always had a soft spot for Lotus Europas. I had a matchbox model of one when I was a kid!

There were a few Triumph's there as usual, my GT6 included.

Toledo with a Ford V6....

Looks familiar, oh yes it's mine!

Glenn's Spitfire, Bonnet open as we were discussing some carb issues he has.

The V6 Toledo on it's way out
And here are a few of the other marques that caught my eye.

Well it was back to the future day earlier this week so only right to feature some DeLorean's

Nice Plymouth Baracuda, I'd like this in my stable of cars.

A very "Noble" car

I think this MItsubushi wins lary bad taste car of the meet...

Genuine World Cup Mexico rally car, a shame it's been modded as it had a modern Ford Engine in it.

Racing Jensen Healey, again an Engine Change, had a Ford 4 pot in it instead of the original Lotus slant Engine.

Cute and Original Kestrel

Pretty rare nowadays, an Escort RS Cosworth
