'Classic Car Day at Cliveden'
Wow! What a Fantastic Day, with endless sunshine and large crowds of visitors showing a keen interest in the extensive range of cars from Vintage to Modern Jaguar Super Cars. The Display opened at 10am but it was 11.45 before I arrived.
The main drive was almost full using both sides as the excellent group of Marshalls directed me to my slot on the North Side. Since my last visit, the Drive has been re laid with white pebbles producing a Mediterranean appearance and heightening the deep colours of the highly polished cars .
The Main Drive looking towards the Magnificent Fountain.
Looking towards the House, cars are still arriving. I estimate that over 150 cars eventually presented themselves.
My knowledge of the cars on show is limited therefore I do not intend here to try and describe them in detail as I am bound to get them wrong.
This delicious pair of MGs caught my immediate attention to the delight of any Morgan Owner, I am sure.
Further down the drive I spot another MG parked alongside this Early series Land Rover.
And yet another later model MG in Ivory.
The Mid drive view towards the house is a log jam of visitors and enthusiastic owners mingling and talking 'Cars'
A visit to Clivedon would not be complete without a photo of the stunning fountain, taken off centre to avoid more photographers to my right.
The only Daimler SP250 on show being a 1961 2litre V8 (read off of the windscreen card)
I am not sure about this one. It may be a Renault?
Triumph and Morris Minor 1000
While some visitors like to look inside, Presentation is spoilt by the Bonnet Up
Two More Triumphs and the only Yellow car n show.
The Jaguar Owners were here in force with these two stunning examples.
And another group of Triumphs on the opposite side of the drive.
A beautiful Aston Martin DB6 only needed Mr Bond to complete the picture.
These two members of the Morris Register probably arrive together.
A lovely version of the Baby Austin A40 with a nice array of Car Badges below.
A large group of Triumph TR6's make a colourful display.
I just love these cars and this Sunbeam is no exception
I would love to own a Bull Nose Morris and I particularly like the unusual solid wheels
This beautiful Two Tone Ford Tourer, with its yellow wheels, has a Canadian badge on the side of the bonnet. Could it be the car or the owner that is from Canada.
It is good to see this Morris Tourer with its hood down.
My Neighbors John & Georgie are relatively new to Classic Cars with their stunning BMW 5 series
Having exposed leaf springs on the rear of the Morgan I am envious of this seat on the old Sunbeam
Having left the estate I head downhill to Wooburn Green
The camera is put away until the next trip out.
I hope that you enjoyed the photos,
