A very sunny day (Sunday), at the December 2018 Caffeine and "CLASSICS" at Smales Farm.
More than 30 classic Minis turned up and put on a great display, more than 500 other classics turned up also. I organised the cars into four decades, '60s, '70s, '80s, & '90s. Warwick and Lesley raced in with the De Joux. Alister, Steve and my early Coopers were there.
The '90s Coopers were Phil's chrome show car, Zak, Jo and a Cooper 35 carrying on the green theme, with our club captain in red. A white Murayama '90s Rover Cooper (John Cooper tuning kit added in Japan) was brought along by Jason. This car was one I brought along to C&C just over a year ago. The Snells came along a little later. "UK1958," a '90s white Cooper, was also parked nearby.
There were a myriad of '80s Minis there, nearly all modified, including Jim's 8 port Clubman and Darren's CuteBM.
The rest of our group was mostly '70s Minis. Amongst these were 3 vans/estates, a couple of utes: a V8 one and a standard one for comparison. And the Muries' jeeped Moke.
Parked nearby was a surf's up Mini, ready for the beach on this lovely Sunday.
We took up 3 complete parking rows this time. I will try for 4 rows in January, one for each decade. Help me guys , more cars please.
NOTE, IF THE ENTRY BARRIER IS DOWN PLEASE COME AROUND IT, WE ALWAYS HAVE A SAVED SPOT FOR CLASSIC MINIS (or come around to the back park down by the steps/hedge behind our main spot.)
