Here you go! The amazon was brilliantly restored, like the rest of the owners cars.

Am on the move, and working with a patchy net connection, hence uploading in parts!

Lovely pics JayD! But seems you missed the 1100D with Alloys! Do check if you have the pics of the same.

The SuperSelect was a good resto too! The color looks pretty similar to my SS in this picture than it was in flesh

Below is the 1100D I'm talking about and in front of it is JayD at work!

Superb pics. jayD. I really envy you guys! Cant wait for 15th August! Hopefully we will have the rally here atleast this time!
Yes you're right there were certainly fewer Standards than before. Good to see a couple of Heralds there atleast. There was one lovely Black Standard Herald mk1 MYB 6890, a very early example, wonder if its still around. Mr. CS Ananth, what about your 12/50 Herald?

Jay while thanking you for superb pictorial you have given us, the above statement to me was rather disappointing

I was waiting for the bike pictures - I know Dussey and the like had some nice bikes out there - unless you have put up another thread with the bikes ?

Hope you have some pics of the two wheelers as well?

Best Regards & Drive Safe

Brilliant and great pictures, looking at these cars brings back nostalgic memories, i spent my childhood days in Harrington Road and was privileged to view and go on a ride on some of these beauties. My dads first car was a Morris minor and boy it was a great car. I definitely missed this event but thanks to this thread I felt like having seen the cars in person.

These are some really well maintained cars and the brilliant photographs really capture them in all their beauty.

Just out of curiosity, what was the criteria for the selection of these cars by the organizers. A Hillman or a Karmann or for that matter a Dukker FIAT hardly qualifies as a vintage car. I know the term "Classic car" is not clearly defined, but this is stretching things too far.
