Riley 1.5 at West Bay

To start this very nice looking Riley 1.5 litre.

 

 

1930s Austin

Next a 1930s Austin, a very smart vehicle.

 

2 Rovers and a Ford

Two 3 or 3.5 litre Rovers flanking a Ford which is the estate version of the Anglia - an Escort!

 

Mark 2 Jaguar

A Mark 2 Jaguar, a car I've always liked even though I've never driven one.

 

Daimler V8 250

The same body shell was used for the Daimler V8 250 such as this gleaming 1969 example.

 

 

MG sports car

An MG sports car - the June weather was perfect for an open car like this!

 

MG 1300

A rather different MG, a 1300 from 1971, alongside a Morris Minor pick up.

 

3 oldies and 2 not quite so old

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.

 

Hillman Husky

A Hillman Husky, basically the estate version of the Minx but only 2 door.

 

 

Austin A55 Cambridge

An Austin A55 Cambridge if memory serves me right.

 

 

Vanden Plas 4 litre R and Morris van

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.

 

Vanden Plas and Daimler

Another view of the Princess 4 Litre together with a Daimler Conquest Drophead Coupé.

 

1921 Rover 12hp

This 1921 Rover 12 hp is from a very different era in motor car development complete with spoked wheels and running boards.

 

 

Model T Ford

An immaculate Ford Model T - any colour you want as long as it is black!

 

 

American group at West Bay

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.

 

Austin Gyspsy

Pre British Leyland BMC's equivalent of the Land Rover was the Austin Gypsy, two examples of which are seen in this photo.

 

Land Rovers and US 4x4

A line up of Land Rovers with an American military 4x4 on the end.

 

Land Rovers galore

The other end of the line of Land Rovers started with a Range Rover ambulance then a Fire Brigade Land Rover.

 

Fire engines

More emergency vehicles, two fire engine, a Bedford "Green Goddess" and an older still Leyland.

 

Line up of lorries

A line up of lorries including a Ford, two Bedfords, and an AEC - not sure what the normal control one is.

 

Line up of lorries 2

Another line up of lorries, this time an AEC, an Atkinson, a Seddon and a Volvo.

 

Recovery trucks

A Dodge recovery truck and an AEC Matador.

 

Thames Trader and Atkinson lorries

A Thames Trader and an Atkinson.

 

Two flatbed lorries

A earlier Thames lorry (left) and a Bedford.

 

Tractors

A line of tractors, nearest the camera  a McCormick then a Nuffield and a Ferguson TE20.

 

Small Ransome tractor

This little Ransome looks as if it should be on tracks not tyres.

 

 

Showman's engine

An Aveling showman's engine made a fine sight.

 

 

Traction engines

Ahead of the showman's engine was this Hayden agricultural traction engine.

 

 

Little and large

By the big ones, a miniature traction engine.
