Nice. I went to a Club Lotus open day at the factory many years ago. Very interesting, and got to drive my own car round the track. Unfortunately I’d had to take the Sierra as I had two passengers! It was a bit embarrassing really.

Nothing wrong with a Sierra, great cars, I once owned one and it gave me no trouble. I can't remember why I sold it though.

I have to agree, but it couldn’t keep up with Lotuses round a test track!

I saw the Ford Anglia car again yesterday and I asked the owner how it handles, he said it handles well, just like a normal car, he also joke that it also goes sideways if you drive too fast around roundabouts

They will be having a big birthday bash this Sunday, with Great Yarmouth sea front road closed off for the day, with many cars on display (including mine if all being well).

Yesterday was the East Coast Pirates 13th Birthday Birthday Bash. I took nearly 200 photos. I'm hoping to upload a few of them each day.

We arrived in Yarmouth at 7am in the morning, we took some early pics before it got too busy

Here is some more pics of the Ghost Buster Car, and the inside is done out like those limousines that you hire out for nights out. It looks like they do hire this out to take people to clubs and Proms etc..

And they also fired them up, the propellers in the videos look slow, but I can assure you, that is the camera playing tricks, they were really spinning fast and the engines were very loud too

Yes, you are correct :handgestures-thumbupleft:

It's one of three piers in Yarmouth, you also have the Wellington Pier and also the central Jetty if you count that as one too :laughing-rolling:

Great photos Roy, especially like the Capri lineup. I learned to drive in my dads 2.0 v4 mark 1 in gold metallic paint :think: happy memories.

Sorry I've not posted any more pics for a good few days, I've a busy week and weekend as I gave my daughter away and gained a son-in-law.

I've still plenty more photos from the Pirates birthday bash

It wasn't just all cars, there were a small collection of bikes too
