Sunday morning. Another warm but grey, overcast morning.
We decided to walk to the Milntown Estate on the other side of town as they were hosting the Classic Car Club Gathering in their grounds.
It was a pleasant half hour stroll and we arrived quite early as not all the cars had arrived. At least it was fairly quiet and we felt safe wandering around before the crowds turned up.
There were some interesting vehicles there and we spent some time just mooching around before walking back home the long way via the seafront.
We passed this catering van along the way as the stages were being set up for the Ramsey Rocks festival.
"Gourmet" chips, cheese and gravy anyone?
Baps only £3.50! A plastic surgeon would charge far more than that. Sounds like Ramsey is the gift that keeps on giving!ReplyDelete
Sinking to the depths again, YP 🙄Delete
F told me they called those cars Vintage when she was a kid, so they must be ever so old now! How many hundred years to you reckon? xxx Mr TReplyDelete
Oh, several I should think 😁Delete
I hope the Breakfast Banger isn't referring to one of those beautiful cars from way back when?😊ReplyDelete
Could be, Dave 😉Delete
I've been in cars like that when they were new.ReplyDelete
What, those first four?Delete
Morris Oxford just visible in picture 1.Delete
The vintage cars remind me of a 1927 RR Phantom immaculately maintained by the very nice elderly 'Lady of the Manor' in our village--manservant and all. Whenever it was serviced at the petrol station (near my home), the fellow would give a few of us children rides around the village. Didn't we feel la-de-da as we sat primly in the seats doing the royal wave to passers-by. :)ReplyDelete
Ooh, lucky you. That must have been great fun xDelete
All kids should have the opportunity to feel la-de-da every now and again! I love that little story, Mary!Delete
Those are lovely old cars. Well worth a walk-around. And no rain!ReplyDelete
They were indeed lovely. There are a surprising number of classic and vintage cars here for such a small island.Delete
Chips and gravy is a combination I have never tried.ReplyDelete
I wouldn't bother, Weaver!Delete
In the early 1970s my friend had a Wolseley as in the last picture, two tone, went like a rocket once she got it rolling.ReplyDelete
Some of those were great cars back in their day. They looked good too.Delete
Chips, cheese (here it's curds), and gravy is very like Quebec poutine, not something I'm partial to!ReplyDelete
Here grated cheddar cheese is heaped on top of the chips then thick brown gravy poured all over it. Not my thing!Delete
I once owned a lovely blue 2CV.... I'd love to own another one.ReplyDelete
Perhaps your original is still out there somewhere?Delete
I love seeing those old vehicles. They have such character and class!ReplyDelete
All modern cars look the same to me.Delete
What lovely cars. Not too keen on chips with gravy - I much prefer them dry with a twist of salt.ReplyDelete
Same here, Addy.Delete
The cars look amazing!ReplyDelete
They were. I wish I had taken photos of more of them.Delete
I rather like the Vauxhall. However I love almost all old cars.ReplyDelete
Yes, there is an elegance about them that draws the eye.Delete
What nice cars! And what a nice day to go 'gawping at them'.ReplyDelete
Yep. And the sun came out that afternoon too.Delete
