    Hi Ray, it certainly has its share of hiccups. Take her for a run anytime you like.

    [QUOTE=Roger Dowding;71848]Indeed Ray,

    " I still like the purity of the first E Types, with fared in lights. Regardless of the hiccups of any Mark 1, on looks alone, I still remember the day it was released and the splash the daily papers made of it. We were gobsmacked. "

    Roger, Jaguar saloons were Mark- MK1, MK2. ,E type were Series...3.8, Series 1, Series 1/2, Series 2, Series 3 (V12)

    A massive thank you to the organisers and sponsors of Caffeine & Classics, (Protecta Insurance) as this monthly event is not only totally free, for those displaying or spectating, but it is also free of the restrictions of movement as applied to other shows. Being able to turn up and leave at your leisure should not be underrated, as I am one who is not really keen on having to be 'in position' at 8am then being prevented from leaving until 4pm, or whatever times the organisers apply.

    The constant change arounds at C & C inevitable mean that some early arrivals have also left early and late arrivals have been missed. The total informality of the monthly meet is also what makes it so attractive and whilst Tony will grab a regular spot for the Minis, cars aren't crammed together by make or model, so seeing immaculate exotica or unique cars parked next to a scruffy rat rod or truck just adds to the attraction. Catching up and chatting with so many friends and acquaintances from the motorsport is also a regular bonus.

    Let's hope that the Auckland Council's plans to build on the Takapuna ANZAC street car park don't see the still fairly popular Sunday market, shifted to Smales Farm and Caffeine and Classics made homeless, as I suspect more people now visit C & C than the market which isn't quite as popular as it once was.

    Re #3125. Formula Fords. Thanks to Milan's programme scan for January, and a fair bit of time Googling, I have now identified all 4 cars.

    Still a hefty pile of ex slide and negative scans to ID more for accurate dates than subject matter.

    Thanks to all those who have filled in a load of gaps, especially Milan. You have no idea just how much I appreciate your assistance.

    I have slimmed the library down a bit by deleting obvious near duplicates from a meeting or where the focus was less than really good, but the older pics particularly, slides and negatives, we are lumbered with a few dodgy ones.

    Just a random dip into the pile of British sports-racing cars

    Will we ever see a meeting with so many imported iconic cars ever again? Nostalgia should be reserved for several decades ago, not just 1!

    ERC - have " Borrowed " the Bucklers Puke October '85 - shows the now Bart Jonkers car the Green/Yellow stripes behind the " Blue Brick " the Jonkers car now in Europe the Blue Brick is still in NZ I believe, " Oldfart " may know more

    #59 in post 3151 is Brian Ax, has owned the car for decades. The Landcrab London to Sydney car, now owned by a lovely guy I have spent time with here in the UK. It's amazing how near to standard it is, especially so much of the interior, wooden door caps, and much soft trim, except the seats. As he said, if you are going to go as far as they did, you need to have some level of comfort.
    Post 3152, the Blue Brick is with NZ Buckler guru Kelvin Brown in ChCh.

    Somewhat annoyed to find that I missed this race group on track in 2018 - twice... I was busy in the paddock with the Ricketts and ERA GP1. I'll make sure that this year, I will catch all groups.

    Just booked my flights - but I wish I'd paid back in September. Would have saved me a fair bit of cash. The Air NZ sale doesn't include the LAX/LHR legs - nor the dates I wanted to travel. I was offered a cheaper flight via Singapore, but on my list is another visit to the Petersen Museum in Hollywood - and a cellar/vault tour, even though photographs aren't allowed in there.

    Whilst in the UK, I'll be making a return visit to the Caister Castle museum, now that they have allowed photography.

    Not sure if anyone watches the 'Father Brown' series on TV, but more often than not, there is a decent classic car or two and the one we watched the other night, had a mint Austin Healey 100 with louvred bonnet featured.

    There was a time when paddock access at any F1 GP wasn't restricted to the elite and everything hidden from the view of the public. This was 1973 at Silverstone. Probably when the late Geoff Manning was part of the team.

    Oulton Park 1975. When I arrive in the UK, this year, it is Oulton Park Gold Cup weekend and I was very tempted to head up there on the Monday, but as it is Bank Holiday weekend, I have decided that travelling there and back in the one day wouldn't be a good idea, especially given my advanced decrepitude.

    " No explanation required here... 1985 " Post #3154 - " The Healey and TR ",
    Healey would be Frank Karl, and the TR is Chris Watson in his TR5. remember when Chris had the Garage on Glenfield Road, now a" Z " station, and later workshops in Wairau Valley.

    ERC Thanks for those photos " borrowed "of course - but I did find you those John Vever's ones of your car - part payment - perhaps !!

    Apologies if any of these have been seen before, but in the early days of posting, I didn't keep a check on what I had uploaded. Now I do!

    1980 Curborough. There is a double NZ connection here. Arthur Nash told me that he was distantly related to NZ's Walter Nash. Arthur built the 1300cc Mini engine that I brought to NZ that ended up in Mike Lucas's Mini. I never got the chance to run the engine at anything other than running in levels, but when Arthur rebuilt my class winning engine, (that I had bought second-hand), it had broken rings and other issues. Amazed that I had done so well with it, including the first sub 40 second run in that hotly contested up to 1300cc road modified class at Curborough.

    By the time it made it into Mike's car, virtually unused, the core plugs had rusted through... Sorry Mike.
