Okay, a few pics from Nostell Priory 1979, when I was nobbut a spotty teen. Dont know much about all the cars but it includes Roger Butterworth's 57, the Ace of Clubs Minor van, the inimitable Satan's Pawn Devon, Street Fighter alongside High Spirits, the Harvest Moon CF, an SS Camaro I know nothing about, Hydra the Escort van, S Type Jag, a Pop I think belonged to Paul Schofield and the Black Magic VX4/90, which showed you could use metalflake, Mirraflake, slots and sidepipes and still have a tasty car!

ACROSS THE FIELD FROM THE MINOR VAN I THINK YOU CAN SEE THE RUGGED COMFORT LANDROVER AS PICTURED BELOW, & BEHIND THE WHITE CAMARO I'M PRETTY CONFIDENT IN SAYING THIS IS THE SAME GRANADA, (NOTE THE VENETIAN BLINDS!!) HOW THE F##K DID HE PULL THEM UP, A SLIGHT ANGLE PROBLEM ONE WOULD THINK!!:smoke:

PICS ARE FROM KNEBWORTH 78 COURTESY OF IAN WALKER...

Ray/Joy Young's, 'Harvest Moon' V6 Bedford CF, I used to love that van, had the chance to drive it a few times and would like to own it even now.
