I was going to say that we went to a classic car rally today, but actually it was billed as the Western Isles Transport Group show. There were a few tractors and motorbikes, but it was mostly cars. James is very interested in transport, he happily plays at 'garages' every day and we read a lot about cars and trucks. So, seeing this as a sort of field trip on the subject, we headed off.
We have a friend back down in the Central belt who refers to Lewis as The Isle of Rust! Not a lot of rust in evidence here, I have to say. Lots of shiny, shiny metal glinting in the sun.
Ford had a big presence on the field, with this gorgeous turquoise Popular and lots of Escort Mexico's.
Nice Hillman Humber.

A couple of immaculate Morris(es) or should that be Morrisii?
Like this old Bedford van, which was a former workers' minibus. Mind you, there were some cars which I didn't think were actually vintage - that snappy red Escort GTI, or the Capri, for instance - surely some mistake!
James thinks it is a very sleek machine.
