    As per the title this was a car show on Mersea Island just outside Colchester, lots of shiny metal and acres of chrome made for a great day out. Atmosphere was really relaxed with owners pleased to talk about their cars and 60's music coming really clearly out of a well sorted tannoy system. Sun shone as well which made it even better.

    Instead of taking pictures of complete cars I concentrated just (mainly that is) on bits of them. Some work, some may not, here are a few ....

    Like them a lot. Cracking set - very nice.

    They're all very good, and you've caught some interesting angles there.

    Very nice set Bill - my favourites are number 1, 10 and 17.

    Pity there was no Daisy Duke with the General Lee ;)

    10 is a very interesting composure :D

    other than that, I like 12 and 16 and 24 :thumbsup:

    maybe you should crop the 27 at least on the right side to get rid of that blurry area.
