Supercheap Shannon Auto Spectacular 2018 (2).

A Ford owner and a Cadillac owner who both like to be noticed.

Suspicious looking bulge in the bonnet of this '81 Chevy Malibu.

Pillarless 4 door Chevy Caprice of 1969.

A couple of Morris Minor 1000s.
The Traveller is a particularly nice example. Fitted with, what looks like, MGA wheels and upgrade with a 1275cc engine.

Ford of Britains big saloons.
The Zephyr Six.

Mk 3 Zephyr has a very neat fitting of accessory driving lights in the grille and 351cubic inches of non standard power.

Mk 1 convertibles are much sought after.
I'm not sure if this was a factory colour, but it looks good with a few period extras.

Lovely choice of colours and 13 inch mag wheels makes this a Humber 80 to be proud of.

1990 Mitsubishi Galant original.

I've shown this beautifully kept series 3 Humber 80 before, but it's worthy of another photo.

Who can resist a Mk 2 Jaguar with the biggest engine option.
The 220bhp 3.8 litre twin cam six.

The Triumph Dolomite was a 1854cc performance saloon of the 70s.

MGA  fixed head coupe looks like a proper British sports car.
This is a Mk 1 model, identifiable by the grille bars being sloped forward to follow the line of the grille surround.
Mk 2s had recessed vertical grille bars which, I think, was a backward step in styling.

Standing separate from the other Zephyrs, the big, bold lines of the Mk 4 with its grille-less front.

Not often you see four of these together.
All from the mid 20s and wearing the Essex badge.

One of the many British gentleman's cars of the 1950s, a 1955 Armstrong Siddeley Sapphire.
