WAAAAAAY back in 2006 (okay, so it’s not that long ago) was the last Festival of Speed meeting that I attended, I didn’t take my C110 as it had recently been involved in a crash that left it off the road for several months (mostly due to the massive delay of the Insurance side of things) so I ended up attending in my brother’s 240Z just as a regular passenger and bystander type of person.

For reasons unknown, I have no photographs of the voyage up though I did take a few of the display, yet none of the antics.  So I present to you the following photos, taken on the old Agfa camera, they’re not fantastic in quality but they are better than nothing.  We were so pleased with the size of our display, as were the organisers of the event who couldn’t believe we’d got together than many cars just to come to their meeting.

Though the display is not as diverse as it could have been if many more member’s could make the day and there are a million 510′s, it’s still an impressive collection of roadworthy cars.

Some sort of Australian car display was opposite.  Insignificant by comparison.

Zeb is now obsessed with grandpa style Toyotas, you may know him from such blogs as gx61.wordpress.com.  He’s a worry, instead of spending a bob or two getting his 260C back to an awesome level, he’s spending wads of cash on standard spec Toyota Cressida’s and then putting wheels on them.  Ah well, each to their own, aye Zeb :P

There’s a few more to see, I just thought I’d throw up pretty much one of each model type of the cars on display, though as a last special hoorah, here’s some more of the Fairlady 240ZG I mentioned earlier.
