At New Year I was in Marlborough for a family event and got to see Omaka Classic Cars which I missed last time I was there to see the aircraft museum.
|The 1984 380SL Mercedes wasn't really a sports car, more of a grand touring convertible, but a magnificent motor car all the same.|
|I remember when every little old lady had a standard one of these and a lot of young men had highly modified examples.|
This Ford Anglia from 1961.
|The spartan interior of the above Anglia.|
|The Peugeot 404 was a refined saloon for its day. Certainly a much quieter and smoother car than its BMC look-a-likes.|
The engines were also renowned for covering very high mileages with little maintenance.
|Even the interior with its long column shifter has a reasonably up-market look about it.|
|My wife surveys the Ford line-up...Falcons, Escorts, Anglias, Capris, Cortinas.......Those were the days.|
|The Brits down on the farm. The Massey-Ferguson 135, manufactured from 1964 to 1975 and a series 3 Land Rover from 1980.|
|The two Holdens nearest the camera would be my two favourite models. The HR and the EH.|
|Nice to see a 750 Honda in restored condition. Unfortunately far from original with its 4 into 2 exhausts and painted parts which should be chromed.|
|Jaguars are obviously special to the collection owner. This line is made up of Mk IX, Mk VIII, Mk VII and my wife is obscuring the Mk V.|
|Jaguar's brilliant XK engine was a masterpiece. Here it is squeezed into an XK 140.|
|The aforementioned Mk V Jaguar.|
