Our friend Joe Hunt headed to the Swadlincote Festival of Transport. A small show held in the middle of a Derbyshire town ran by the Box Motor Club. It always attracts a massive range of cars and is a brilliant day out.

Thanks to Joe for taking some great photos of some of the cars there.

Quite a contrast. Stingray v’s Baywindow!

Some people turned on the style.

Elegant and powerful. There is nothing like a Rolls Royce.

Some great pin striping on this Type 3.

Not many of these left. Most ended up wrapped around trees!

Cortina’s have a great appeal and always look fantastic.
