They were all at the 15th Vintage, Historic & Classic Car Rally in Alness today.

1932 Morris Major


1996 Lomax 223 - Three Wheeler - Kit Car


Beauly Pipe Band Thought this would make a colourful shot with the tent in the background.


1914 Clayton & Shuttleworth - Steam Traction Engine


Green Iguana This and other reptiles were displayed by an organisation which rescues illegally imported reptiles and those dumped by there "owners". I couldn't get a shot without glass reflections so the lady opened the door for me. I had to be quick as the iguana saw his chance and tried a dash to freedom.

:clap: Alan-I love old cars! Nice shots especially the sepia-toned ones! I love the first car too! Nice shot of the Iguana-specially since it was a rush job!
Happy Father's day-if you have it there-even if you don't!:clap: :clap: :clap:

That first shot is my favorite, though the steam engine is a close second. The pipers are nice - are they standing on a hill or did you just not correct your horizon line? ;)

My favorite is the Iguana! WOW! it's COOL!
:clap: And you got a GREAT shot! :clap:

LOL - I was so tired after walking around over 400 exhibits with a tribe of kids that I didn't even notice. In fact I was probably nodding off to sleep as I was posting with my head on a similar angle to the photo :D

Looks like a fun day - I think the black and white is a nice touch for the old autos.

Thanks MM.

Here's two more:

1928 Austin 7 Chummy


1927 Ford Model T Van

This historic and unique van was specially built onto a Ford Model T one ton chassis for the Broncho Bills Circus by "The Eccles Showmans Living Wagon Co." in 1927.

The van was discovered in a derelict shed in 1974, near to the old Bronco Bills Circus wintering yard in Gorsebrook Road, Wolverhampton, and was in a sorry state. The side panels had been damaged by a shotgun blast, and much of the original Broncho Bills Circus script had come away. The original panels are being kept in preservation.


Sorry about the washed out skies, although it's actually a pretty realistic view of what it was like yesterday.
