classic and sports car magazine, happy 30th…

Dear diablog

So why was Glynsky seen recently on a night out by the river

listening to swing music

eating the best burger EVER from Street Kitchen and  ice cream from a fully restored van (yes, people even do these!!)

Of course, at the Classic and Sports Car mag’s 30th Birthday party held in Teddington at their offices!

And an excellent time it was as well!!
As previously mentioned on the G+P diablog, September will be a busy ‘car’ month (and you will all be bored by loads of photos) and this was a superb opener to the coming fest with all sorts of cars on view – all by special invitation. There was an extraordinary range of models on view from the ‘elderly’ exotics

Bugatti and Talbot, to the more…

…(for me) mundane

to the downright ugliest ever built

via the  special, such as the wonderful Lancia Aprilia

a signed Maserati Khamsin

some reasonable Ferrari’s surrounding a hairdresser’s car

with another Ferrari by yet another bloody hairdresser – if I owned something as special as a Ferrari the last thing I would want to park beside is a can of Diet Coke!
I suppose the blue Scim makes up for it, but for heavens sake!!!

To the very special, such as Aston and Ferrari back to back

and the downright bonkers after which I have lusted since I could walk and which, after the ’55 Caddy Fleetwood Drophead with the chrome tits on the bumpers is the greatest shape to come out of America (sorry Miss Monroe)

a drophead (ragtop?) veritable mobile housing estate – a 1959 Chevvy Impala! Life can now go on.

Well done Classic and Sports Car, and thanks for an excellent evening.

So, if you have made it this far and I have survived Engine Room’s whinges about kilobites of my burger and too many pics, I leave you with two final shots whilst I polish the SS to be ready for the next three seriously prestigious outings.
First the engine of Glynsky’s 2000 Sprint (which you have never seen before and is one of only 4 running in the world) and, if you know what you are looking at, clock the pair of  Dell’ Ortos

and to sign off, you know you’ve made it and well cool when you can use the boot of your DB5 as a bar table!!!

Yours, diablog, revved up for the month

One thought on “classic and sports car magazine, happy 30th…

  1. You are one lucky man, my dear!

    What a great collection of beauties, stunning.

    “Haidresser”? Really? That’s what they are called? The rest of the world considers the E-Type THE English classic car. Copied many times.

    For once I’ll trust your judgment.

    Glad you’re back,
    ER
