    Aye bit of everything there. Lupo on airbags was nice too although not much of a classic

    If it's the usual one that goes to these yes it is, he reckons it's insured for a million quid.

    it is, the lad that has it goes all over on it, rides it like it was meant to be ridden.
    my mate was there on his 1915 triumph that wouldn't start. as soon as everybody who was watching him trying to start it buggered off it fired up :)

    I took that to the show. It was first registered in 1954 and now has a 2.3 litre Porsche engine fitted.
    Sadly it belongs to my brother.

    Are they not just "cars" in coxhoe rather then classic ones?

    I think I was chatting to you at one point having a look at the motor. Lovely car be worth a canny few quid now I bet. Prices just keep rising on the early air cooled stuff.

    You never know what's going to turn out in the Coxhoe show. I was one of the stewards so I didn't get chance to have a good look at the cars apart from when they were entering.
    The Plymouth Coupe was breathtaking and unknown in local American car shows.
    It was great to see the Mathewsons from the Bangers and Cash TV series. Top blokes.
    Hopefully it'll be a little warmer at next year's event.

    It's kind of sad to see the prices going through the roof. I love pre 1960 ripple bonnet 2CVs but your looking at upwards of 20 grand nowdays.

    Another great turn out even though it was freezing.

    Well done the fellas who organise this.

    Highlights were chips and gravy in the cafe and couple pints in blacksmiths on the way home

    Love the old xr2’s nova and Astra GTE

    my mate was gonna take his mk1 xr2 but not sure if he got along or not.

    There was a really clean grey fiesta popular. I always find these cars interesting as they are probably rarer than there more desirable models and you find yourself wondering who the hell saved it all these years :lol:. My mates mk1 golf is similar is a 1.5gl with a 3 speed auto box. According to how many left website it's the only one on the road in the country.

    Yeah I saw it ,you get people who buy new and keep forever using very occasionally ,finding them is the hard part I suppose

    He got his from an old boy in Boldon who had it from new. Had a heart attack and couldn't drive anymore. Only had a bout 60k on the clock and came with original bill of sale etc.
     
  20. Wonder if he's still got that elastoplast on his finger
    Wish I'd known was in Coxa on Monday would have stayed an extra day.Would love to find an old Wolseley 1500 any at the show?
