Driving down from Manchester to Midhurst, I stopped at the Oxford services on the M40, and parked up next to these monster-engined cars. Being still a kid at heart, I went over and had a long look at the cars and a chat with the owners.

They were on their way up from London to the Shakespeare County Raceway for a few races and time trials. It was great to see cars like this, and even better to hear them start up as they left. I have a fondness for old (ā€™60s and ā€™70s) American cars, having had a lovely ā€™73 Chevrolet Caprice for many years.

That reminds me, mallum has a great looking Mustang and Iā€™m really jealous :-)
