Hi, If it helps, the Minor was built by John Stearman of Long Stratton, Norfolk, later rebuilt by him into the pro street version shown here. As far as I remember the Bedford built by Steve Jest for John Unsworth of Norfolk and the Fiesta came from Suffolk.

The Fiesta was 'Digger's', aka Trevor Gardiner.

At a guess I'd date the pictures at about 1982 as I'm pretty sure by 83 the Fiesta was painted. Surprised there isn't a pic of Tom Newman's Corsair in that lot.
