Brooklands Classic Car Day 2014

This has been one of the busiest weeks of the year so far with most of yesterday morning spent cleaning Jagger after our visit to the Silverstone Classic on Friday.

 

Today is the members' classic car day at Brooklands which makes this our second visit to the museum in four days.

 

On arrival we were guided to a parking space outside one of the famous old sheds where we met friends Sue and Graeme.

 

Sue and Graeme's Austin Healey outside the clubhouse, this shot wouldn't look out of place on a post card - now there's an idea......

Our parking space outside one of the famous old sheds and alongside one of those lovely old Citroen vans that look like they've been made from sheets of corrugated metal.

How appropriate this Aston Martin is parked alongside Concorde, I can imagine the owner getting out of his car and walking up the steps for his supersonic flight to New York.

Smart looking Lancia Fulvia, wouldn't mind a ride in that.

Immaculate Rover P5 parked alongside the Wellington Aircraft Hangar, when I was a child this was the type of car used by the Prime Minister

Getting ready for a retake of The Italian Job?

A pair of happy members' in their AC Ace alongside a Triumph Stag and AC Cobra Replica. I should know what the aircraft is but I'm sorry, I haven't a clue.

A group of airline liveried vans, property of Brooklands Museum.

Great looking MG Midget, this little car must bring many smiles to it's owner.

 

This lovely old Routemaster was giving rides to whoever wanted a reminder how public transport used to be.

 

Recently Brooklands released an enamel badge exclusively for members to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the closure of the circuit. This is the first members’ badge in over 70 years and a limited edition of 500 were made by W O Lewis, the company who made the badges all those years ago. I managed to buy one the other night when I went to the Mille Miglia talk, today was a good opportunity to wear it.
