Less than a week to go!

Big Wild is going to get a final tune this week before I hit the road for a 1600 km (1000 Freedoms) trip to Northern California!

Hope to meet some of you there!

Rocky

The black Mk1 is one of Doug’s old car of K&D fame.

Really nice.

6 Interceptor owners attended, with 3 Interceptors (we were hoping for 5).

About 8 Jensen-Healys, and one J-H GT!

You have Ford Cortina Mk2s in California? Absolute legendary in the UK.

Absolutely! This area is lousy with them!

The one car had a license plate frame that said:

“I wish I was driving a Lotus Cortina!”

The Enfield Pageant today on the outskirts of London (UK) was also lousy with Mk2 Cortinas.
In the UK, the 1600E was actually cooler than a Cortina Lotus, being an affordable car for the everyman who wanted to impress his mates down the pub. It came with Rostyles too.

Yes, I'm Stephen.
The event was not only good, and sunny, but vast. The fields packed with cars stretched right up to the tree line in the distance - many hundreds of cars.
Anyway, back to your Western Region event...
