7821 Ditcheat Manor.
Only a couple of buses, first is XUO721 a 1958 Bristol MW6G with ECW coach body, new to Royal Blue as 2238 with 39 coach seats it was converted to C41F in 1967 then in July 1977 it passed to Devon General and was converted to DP41F as their 2902 which is how it is preserved.
The other bus was much further from home - ex London Transport RF MXX8 RF366.
RYD675 a mid '50s Bond Minicar with a single cylinder Villiers 2 stroke engine.
A look under the bonnet, this car has a 250cc engine in place of the normal 197cc, it is also fitted with a dyna starter which saved having to use the kickstart which you can see on the left in this view.
Next is a 1952 Austin A40 Sports OTA885, the 1200cc engine produced 46bhp, the aluminium body was built by Jensen. Next to it is a Triumph Stag with a rather more powerful V8!
A more everyday sort of car - a 1971 Austin 1100.
A rarity - DS3131 a Jowett Javelin Jupiter from the 1950s with a 1486cc flat four engine.
