Goodwood Breakfast Club March 2013

Mario ran briskly down to Goodwood for cold start to the Breakfast Club season. In good turnout we saw some some great and also forgotten classics driven by old friends and new.

I chose to spot some of the rarer but less glamorous cars and share them on the blog.

HA Viva. Nice nick been in the movies and for sale!

Marina 1.8TC. When did you last see one of these? The TC sadly isn’t twin cam but in Morris’ mundane world ‘twin carbs’ a bit like an MGB. Well exactly like an MGB but with a coupe body. Like an MGBGT…I won’t go on…..and on…

Nice bonnet catches on a hot-rod.

Mint Mini in Fiesta Yellow. Looked like pistachio green to me but the owner swore it was an original colour.

My favourite of the day. A westie!! Not only a 4 door Healey but an estate one! How exciting is this? 15″ rostyle wheels from a Rover P5 give it a sporting look and upgraded Jag seats in the front extra comfort. It’s an overdrive model which means it has a terrifying freewheel on the over-run. Tried it once in the rally car and it was only a matter of time before a really big accident was going to come along do it got ditched quickly for the conventional 4 speeder, A great tow barge and it must be incredibly rare?

    That Marina had been attacked by some nutter with a can of black spray paint, when I saw it the owner was having to t-cut it off!
