Car Show Shannon 2016 (3).

The '52 Fords used the same cab, with its aggressive grille, from the F1 pick-ups right up to the F7 Big Job models.
This particular model would be near the lower end with its single rear wheels.
VW Microbus in superb condition was built in 1964.
Morris eights aren't powerful, but can be a great classic car due to their simplicity.
Apart from the rusty tail pipes, this 1970 VW 1500 Beetle was extremely tidy and for sale.
Not the easiest thing to work on without the VW special tools, but I loved driving the one I had many years ago.
Mini based sports coupe.
The Mk 2 Zephyr lends itself to a bit of dressing up.
Cummins powered Foden had been smartly revived.
Fairly standard 1960 PA Vauxhall, but what are those rims off?
1978 Chrysler Newport.
The '54 Vauxhall Wyvern was very original.
I learnt later that the present owner bought it with about 30,000 miles on the clock and hasn't doubled that yet.
Interior was just how it should be.
Although the '39 Oldsmobile is basically the same body as the equivalent Chev, the different front end treatment changes its appearance markedly.
PB Velox wearing all the "necessary" options for the NZ climate.
Porsche 356 Speedster might be a replica, but still looks the part.
Quite a few '47 "jailbars"around, but good to see one that hasn't been altered significantly.
I like the front of the Chev Apaches of the 1959 era.
Although the body could be mistaken for other companies products from around this time, the frontal treatment is unmistakably a '47 Nash.
1959 Chrysler New Yorker Saratoga is a big hunk of metal, but certainly a good looker.
Rare Citroen left before I could get a good look at it.
The Mk 3 Zodiac is my pick of the Z car range, so no apologies for showing one yet again on this blog.
