    Pics of my car at a local classic car show

    I displayed my car at a show that was pretty local to me today. A lot of detailing work was performed beforehand and so i was pleased with the results when the day came (see pics). It really surprised me how much interest the car generated and how many enthusiasts (young and old) knew what it was and knew about it's pedigree. I was also surprised how accepted the car was into the classic car scene (just look at it perched between a couple of golden oldies!). I also had some great conversations with fellow car enthusiasts (Cosworth owners and Rover 3500 owners, for example), on not just my car, but their's as well. It was also nice to see the look on people's faces when I told them that I'd owned it for 16 years. In short, it was a great show

    My daughter also had a great time with me doing some final buffing before the show opened to the public. Anyway, here are some pics (I guess I should have taken some more of the other cars on show, but I was enjoying myself too much and forgot ) - hope you enjoy

    Thanks

    There was a great deal of interest from a wide range of people. Someone even suggested that my example must be worth about 20,000! I smiled politely and said that resto projects can still be picked up for about 1000 and the last truly mint example (which mine isn't) went for about 10,000. I think this still shows how undervalued these cars actually still are, but until the general buying public *want* to pay more, then there won't be much movement in price.

    As for engine shots, well I'm 90% happy with the engine bay but I don't want to post any shots until I'm 99-100% happy, which will probably be by the end of this year.

    Oh wow, Red_Dash. Brilliant!

    I also have been asked how much mine is worth by people in the insurance industry, covering rare and performance cars, when I tell them how much I got it for they cannot believe it. It bodes well for future classic prices!

    It looks great, and to be next to the oldschool cars like it is...a true modern classic.
