Dash, Billy and Niks,
Great to meet you too. Sorry I missed you guys leaving, I would love to have spent longer with you. Owners' Club event days like this are always great to attend, and after a while you keep bumping into people that you know, and it flys away so quickly. I was hoping to meet Trapperjohn as well, but I don't think he got memo about it being a day out and not a relay!! Thanks for the compliments about mine, one of three beryl blue cabs there. The bald head (upper face, as Sharon calls it) you see over the top of my bootlid in the first pic was quite a different shade (of red) by the time we got home!
There were three E500s there, and one of them was the
last one off the production line, a pic below of it (on the left) with the other one you have pictured already. A number of cars, mostly on the grass verges, entered a concors comp, which was won by SPA 934, the cab you posted above. Other fun prizes, such as the sparkliest (any guesses?!!), the scruffiest, the highest mileage etc were given out, plus it co-incided with a Rover club event, which having owned three of the models there ( a Rover 80, a 3.5 litre saloon and an SD1 3500), really enhanced the day at a great venue.
Billy 124's lovely coupé is the first in the line of 124s below.
