Hinckley Classic Car Show 2017

I've been to this before with a Z. It's only just 'down the road' for me, turn up and park.

Unknowing to me I parked behind Trace Albrighton in his Lancia Integrale (Trace used to have a 260 2+2). I also met-up with Dan and his Dad - Dan of white 240/LS3 car. His Dad was in a massive Chrysler US car (that's his business).

Fantastic day again, great variety and a huge turnout (650 cars?).

JK, sorry mate but I need to post a couple of pics of your old Sam.

You are not sorry as where you are parked means you are just taking the p!ss

Far from it. I was just showing off the Webers etc. full credit to JK!

The Z got a lot of attention (not from the AA or RAC), I also forgot to mention Tim Burns who is a very local member and has owned his 240Z for about 30 years. He came along but not in his car (it's been off the road for a while).

Thanks Rob, it's very strange seeing it somewhere I haven't taken it.

I told you about those carbs, it's set up so well now. Enjoy it mate, I certainly did

Cheers

JK.

I just knew someone would comment about the toilets!

I am sorry because I know JK will be sorry to see this car in someone else's hands.

I have a few jobs lined up and I've already replaced the strut-top rose-joints - no rubber, as I said previously it's quite sporty!

Highly recommend this show and we were fortunate with the weather.

Rob, did the council suspend the parking restrictions & pavement for the day?
Normally double yellow lines means no parking, and pavements are for people not cars.

I felt the same way when I saw my old track car in France or Malta. It also appeared on snow with in-car footage on Motors TV during the Historic Monte!

Yes those carbs do seem to be set-up well - your second man did a good job. It ticks over very well and stops immediately when you switch it off too - a novelty for me. I have to stall my blue car and did the same with my old car.

So Jon, do you think I would do that if I wasn't instructed to? The town centre is 'closed off' and over-run with hundreds (600+) of cars.

A video from last year:
