To start this very nice looking Riley 1.5 litre.
Next a 1930s Austin, a very smart vehicle.
Two 3 or 3.5 litre Rovers flanking a Ford which is the estate version of the Anglia - an Escort!
A Mark 2 Jaguar, a car I've always liked even though I've never driven one.
The same body shell was used for the Daimler V8 250 such as this gleaming 1969 example.
An MG sports car - the June weather was perfect for an open car like this!
A rather different MG, a 1300 from 1971, alongside a Morris Minor pick up.
The middle one of these three oldies is an MG, not sure about the other two - the slightly newer ones on the left are a Mini Clubman and a Morris Minor.
A Hillman Husky, basically the estate version of the Minx but only 2 door.
An Austin A55 Cambridge if memory serves me right.
BMC's luxury marque - a Vanden Plas Princess 4 Litre R which has a 6 cylinder Rolls Royce engine, alongside is a small Morris van in Post Office Telephones livery.
Another view of the Princess 4 Litre together with a Daimler Conquest Drophead Coupé.
This 1921 Rover 12 hp is from a very different era in motor car development complete with spoked wheels and running boards.
An immaculate Ford Model T - any colour you want as long as it is black!
This group had a rather different display of 1940s or earlier American vehicles, I think the pick-up with the hood up is a Studebaker.
Pre British Leyland BMC's equivalent of the Land Rover was the Austin Gypsy, two examples of which are seen in this photo.
A line up of Land Rovers with an American military 4x4 on the end.
The other end of the line of Land Rovers started with a Range Rover ambulance then a Fire Brigade Land Rover.
More emergency vehicles, two fire engine, a Bedford "Green Goddess" and an older still Leyland.
A line up of lorries including a Ford, two Bedfords, and an AEC - not sure what the normal control one is.
Another line up of lorries, this time an AEC, an Atkinson, a Seddon and a Volvo.
A Dodge recovery truck and an AEC Matador.
A Thames Trader and an Atkinson.
A earlier Thames lorry (left) and a Bedford.
A line of tractors, nearest the camera a McCormick then a Nuffield and a Ferguson TE20.
This little Ransome looks as if it should be on tracks not tyres.
An Aveling showman's engine made a fine sight.
Ahead of the showman's engine was this Hayden agricultural traction engine.
By the big ones, a miniature traction engine.
