Remember how a while back, just a couple of weeks ago, you know over there, back in time a bit, we said that The Beaulieu Motor Museum is bloody brilliant and has a massive calendar of events for all the family?

No?

Oh.

Well, here’s the story.

And here’s the first widely publicised event.

Loads of Fords.

Loads’a Fords.

Yep that’s a massive event for Ford fans, drivers and aficionados alike. Celebrating 50 years of the Ford Mustang, expect a strong showing of pony cars with their owners/keepers all trotting around, winnying with pride.

The coolest bit might not be the cars though, it’ll be the trade stands. Being up to my neck in car guts is the life for me. Yepidee, yep, yep.

This man is happy he bought a Ford Focus RS. You would be too.

The event will be held on the 4th of May and Ford owners are being encouraged to bring along their own cars to show off to the world. Entry fee’s are £10 for an ‘adult’ and £5 for a child.

Personally, if I had the means I’d prepare a rat-rod style Scorpio. Now, *that* would be awesome.

Well come on down, because Anglia Car Auctions has the, erm, auction for you.

Honestly, many of these are Very tempting. Here’s some of the highlights:

This Alfa Romeo 1300 GT Junior is finished in brown. But who cares? Just look at it:

Bristols. Everyone loves Bristols. This ‘restoration project’ will punch you strait in the wallet. At the moment it looks like one of those dragon skulls from GOT. I’m happy with that:

I have a soft spot for these. Don’t ask me why, because I don’t actually know and I’ve never driven one, but COSWORTH. I think I’ve made my case clear:

I’m not sure I’d want to put the product of my loins anywhere near this little monster, but my goodness, is it cool? It is cool:

David Jason? David Jason. This rather tidy, previously owned by Frost/Del-boy himself, XJS probably smells of English Breakfast farts. David Jason:

If I could find some way of justifying buying something like this, I would. If I could find some way of turning this into an oversized desk ornament, I would:

I submit to you, that to truly be a car entusiast of note, you should own at least one LTI Taxi at some point. Here’s your chance:

ImageFinally, remember when Peugeot’s were pretty?
