The line of Rovers, Series and D90’s back to back…….a pretty good showing this year

I brought the 109 pickup and the 88 “Merc”……….and stuffed the Jack Piner and the ’71 Desert Sled in between them……….the little Sled drew more of a crowd than the Rovers!

Very clean Series 1

I might have to own a 101 some day…….there’s something about them….

My friend Rupert’s Range Rover. I think it’s now running a 4.6 liter hot motor. Tons of beautifully done upgrades on this one completed by Congelton Racing and Restoration

V8 Triumphs a’plenty

This Mini should get an award for coolest/cleanest re-power

Lotus Espirit…….I’ve always liked them, but I’m pretty sure I couldn’t afford to keep one running
