Rootes Weekend

My dear friend Seth the owner of the coolest Hillman Minx on the planet! forwarded me these photos from his Rootes weekend. Just this last Friday he meet up with The Hillman Owners Club at the famous Ace Cafe in London, then on Sunday he drove down to Kent to meet up with The Association of Rootes Car Clubs at their Back To Our Rootes event. I had another post early this year about that very interesting Sunbeam Arrow replica.

As you can see a very cheerful crowd was presents at both events, to greet these wonderful Rootes relics! ;)

Cheers to Seth for the brilliant photos!

Holbay Hunter!

Simply Spectacular!!! This is Ernest's Holbay Hunter, pictures were taken over the past ten years. The car has been re-shelled two years ago, the most recent photos are the JIH 536 reg.

The engine is the spare unit which was built by Holbay for Andrew Cowan 1993 London to Sydney Rally re-run (25th Anniversary of the 1968 Rally). Ernest purchased the engine from Holbay in late 93.

I am so honored to feature this incredible car here, and want send a special Thank You to Ernest, and his son Adrian for contacting me. Adrian, wish I could say that my Dad's Paykan was as fast as your Dad's too! ;@

Special thanks goes to my co-worker Keith for bringing in this 1968 advert (most likely from LIFE magazine).
