Shetland Classic Vehicle Show.

Hi Folks.
Judging by the answers I had from MM and Richard in the French regulations thread, (http://www.cmaxownersclub.co.uk/foru...html#post63827) for which I apologise going "off Piste" so to speak, There seems to be a bit of interest in this topic. So! A new thread then. Basically, between 31st May and 5th June there is the bi-annual classic vehicle meet being held in Lerwick in the Shetland isles. See Shetland Classic Motor Show & Tours | Visit.Shetland.org It is an incredibly well attended event, especially when you consider how remote the place is and the actual cost of getting here. This "blog" explains it quite clearly Shetland Classic Motor Show 2010 | Suite101.com
The weather was a bit overcast and cool for the 2008 event, but 2006 was brilliant. I didn't make 2010 as I was suffering from arthritic hips by then. However I have since been "re-jointed" and I'll defo be at this years one. Regardless of what the weather may bring!

Took me a wee while to catch on to what you meant! LOL! Nice one! The Lagondas which came North in 2008 were AMAZING! they went on several tours and were mobbed wherever they stopped. I'll get a few more pics up when I get them reduced a bit.

I love that Mk1 RS2000 and the Rover SD1.

Seeing the Rover takes me back quite a few years to my Cortina days, walking around scrapyards looking for parts. The whole yard seemed to full of Mk2 Escorts, Mk4/5 Cortinas, Mk2 Granadas and Rover SD1s with the odd Astra and Cavalier scattered around.

The mention of Fordson Tractors brings back memories of when I learnt to drive aged 13 (you could then on the land) too many years ago now
