Welcome !

This blog is a record of running a 50 year old classic car as essential transport and for road trips.

It is here to prepare those who might be tempted to do the same, they require mental and physical stamina, tenacity and transportational back up (not necessarily in that order). It has been challenging, time consuming, frustrating, nerve wracking but very rewarding and enjoyable.

My Jensen CV8 is being driven, not stuck in a garage collecting dust, it is not a concours condition car, and in a lot of respects is showing its age, but it creates interest where ever I go and is great fun to drive.

This blog is dedicated to my family and friends who have to put up with the sweet(?) smell of oil and leather, car seats that only reach half way up your back, front seat belts that attempt to garrotte you every time you turn a corner at speed, and the need for ear defenders at any speed above 50 mph.

Here's a few pictures from Woburn, howling gales, hail and torrential rain didn't dampen the spirits, although the weather was apparently better than yesterday (some sunshine!!). A good turnout of Jensens, 2 CV8s, 5 Interceptors, 3 JHs and a wayward pink (technically "rose") 541.

Some nice other cars, Triumph Italia, couple of DB6s and a few Mark 2 Jags caught my eye. First prize has to go to the WWII ambulance, immaculate, excellent attention to detail and fully equipped.
