Answer to Peanutroaster...there are vintage cars here too.


posted on 23rd of july, 2012

Peanut roaster in a great article says they don't make them like this anymore but really it is just as well........ you need to double declutch to change gear in this old Austin 7
Inverness in Scotland had its own Classic Car Rally a few weeks ago.
I loved the Morris 1000 open tourer which looked even better than the one I owned in the 1970's...... why they didnt beat VW Beetles I will never know.
Another example on show was a British Mini car turned into a wedding car
and presumably creating a new business...... Yesterday I saw a van with the logo Dog Walkers. yet another creative business idea. On show there was also an example of the most famous brand, a Rolls Royce

My favourite was a fairly modern Lotus Sports car, entirely impractical but creating a youthful image

If I cannot have a Lotus then an early and rare Burton Sports car will have to do preferably painted red

At the Car Rally there were folk who dressed up such as this laughing policeman and a Mad Hatter from Alice in Wonderland.


I hope this story of our local classic car rally stimulates those new to microstock to go out and find other colorful events to gain experience and to boost their portfolio.

I've seen a lot of vintage British here in the states also. Plenty of MGs. I saw a very old Lotus the other day - I didn't realize they were around that long. Unfortunately it was only in passing on the road. Plenty of vintage Rolls Royce, one even with the steering wheel on the "wrong" side.
