Brooklands New Year's Day 2015

January 01, 2015  •  1 Comment

New Year's Day saw us head down to Brooklands for their annual meet. One of the pleasures of this event is the sheer diversity of vehicles to look at, and you never know what will be just round the corner. The constant queue of cars entering the site in the morning, soon meant that the museum filled up with vehicles for all tastes.

 

See what I mean about an eclectic mix of vehicles on site!

 

There was even some heavy commercial stuff found trundling down the entrance slope.

 

Some people were obviously still in the Festive mood.

 

This Mini was prepared for action!

 

The E Type began boiling up in the queue, and was doing an impression of a kettle.

 

Quite a collection of Rovers.

 

Some American Muscle came out to play too.

 

Fast French Pocket Rocket.

 

A true English Gentleman's Express.

 

Not all exhibits were shiny bright, but wore their patina with pride.

 

A classy spare wheel.

 

One of the more unusual paint finishes.

 

A highlight of the day was a very kind invitation to tour the premises of The Brooklands Motor Company, where there was a magnificent collection of exotica on show. 

 

Pretty fine line up.

 

At various stages of restoration.

 

Once again a fantastic day out, with so much to look at. Many thanks to all the workers at Brooklands Museum, The Brooklands Motor Company, and all the owners that braved the cold weather to bring out their vehicles for display.

Some very impressive motors and lovely pics. I can hardly believe they are nearly all of complete cars! Lol. Shades of things to come in 2015?
