Great Pics John, keep them coming please.

If you are having trouble individually resizing teh pictures there are picture resizing software available that can do a batch resize at one go on all your pictures. This is a great tool.

Please let me know if you are interested in this and I will try to send you a link to download it. Makes resizing pictures and posting them a breeze.

BTW the cars to be seen between the Momen Bentley and the Standard look interesting, one is the white SS tourer, what is the other very similar white tourer and then the sedan that is between it and the red Bentley.

Do post pics of all teh cars you shot please and highlight the cars that were new to teh event and others that did not participate in the Statesman Event.

Some general shots before the individual cars.

I arrived early so I could see the event unfold and was able to take more detailed photos while the owners were present and not as many spectators around. The following photos tend to be in sequence of shooting and unfortunately because of the early closing of the Car Show, I was not able to take more detailed photos.

Most of the time the owners were not with their cars so I wasn't able to get any details on the cars history.

I will try and first post the cars that weren't at the Statesman Rally but not being there for the full day on Saturday & missed Sundays Rally I'm not sure what cars had participated at both.
Unfortunately a lot of the better cars do not participate at the Statesman as there seems to be not enough Trophies to go around.

I did get some information on WBB-1441 the black RR limo. It has been in their family for about 30 years, from where I don't know. A solid car that with some cosmetic restoration would be quite stunning and elegant. He did mention the desire to do some work on it but to what extent, again, I don't know.

I also noticed that I had incorrectly shown the information on WBB-4133. The sign was not up when I photographed it.

Here's the big Lancia with a few detail shots. I understand it is not well looked after and is indeed showing wear and tear.
