classic afternoon,


By sanbaz


hi nothing to do with gardens but thought some would be interested, especially the men, its been gala weekend in pouton-le-fylde near blackpool, today they had the classic cars on show, so baz and i just went for a look for something to do,

baz really enjoys his cars especially the old models,i like to see them but dont want to stand talking about engines for the next hour lol

anyway we enjoyed the afternoon then went for a nice early bird dinner before home, at least it kept fine to, hope you enjoyed the classics

Hey Sandra looks like a good day - I hope Baz didn't spend too much time talking "engines" my eyes start to glaze over after 5 minutes on the subject - anyway I know he's a great sport and helps you loads in your garden so it's only fair you do the car thing (Don't know if that makes sense but San. knows what I mean !)

I love these old cars, they often have rallies in France when we have been on our hols, the French people love our vintage cars, they all come out to cheer them on.

I'm a little late catching up but great blog! Vintage car rallies and races are popular over here too. I love them but my hubby would rather spend hours talking about computers not engines, so we spend more time at the com shows : )
I use to love talking with the old guy who would come to pick up his grandkids at the school in one of the old Ford model T's he had restored. My favorite was the one he had painted RED! Loved it. What a great way to enjoy a day together!

thanx wohibuli, yes its nice if you both like the same things, we did a rally from where we live to a place called scarbourough, which took about 7 hours in all with the stops, but we made it, was great we were in a wolsey year 1952, with steep hills thought the old car wouldnt make it, but she did it,was glad to get there with all the bumps and turns my stomach had had enough hahah, if you send me your email i will send a pic from the rally with our car,, dont worry if you dont like to give out your email, i understand
