Well a great day (between showers) with Jon R and our wives in a beautiful setting with some nice people and nicer cars.

Only 3 Rover 800's in attendance including mine and Jons and a tidy Oxford Blue fastback Sterling amongst the multiples of 75's, Tomcats and a couple of 600's

some very nice looking cars there.

I used to drive a Ford Classic in Burgundy/Silver in the mid 1990s. Looked nice but was so basic feeling after owning contemporary Triumphs, Rovers and Rootes Cars. The seats were Silver and it had loads of chrome. The stars on the front grill were a nice touch. I honestly couldn't decide if I liked it or not, but I never realy enjoyed driving it.
