Really good to get out today, first show of this very strange year. Great turnout of cars with some not normally seen at shows or anywhere else.
Had a ride on a steam train and got to have a close look at the many exhibits in the museum.
Catering very good and the facilities excellent, bit of a pig to find as i took a wrong turn and was late for the short group cruise to the venue.
7 Zeds in our group plus a Nice looking Estoril blue Z3 looked like a facelift sport parked further back.
Great to meet up with fellow zedders hopefully will get further chances this year to meet up

Good line up of Zeds

That MG looks good! Never heard of the place until Dom's post, looks like a great event to visit with the trains as well.:thumbsup:

That’s a nice looking collection of cars and the train pic is fun. Thanks @Paul Rice - I’ll keep my eyes open for future events there. Did Adrian make it there?

The above is a 'Go Go Tractor', a Fordson adapted to run on rails - very popular it appeared!

Never seen an MGXPower SV-R before - looks like they only made 82 :thumbsup:
Was originally the De Tomaso Mangusta MG bought the ailing firm and beefed up the look of the Mangusta a bit with arches etc then stuck MG badges on it you could have a tuned version with over 1000hp running on Nitrus, then MG collapsed before becoming Chinese.

Guy said there were only 16 made when I asked him about it.

A thoroughly excellent day all round, thanks to Ken forwarding his ticket and midnight conversations with EddieZ to re-arrange his mid morning visit to me thus allowing me to attend. Although the gardens were closed on the day they are apparently spectacular. Worth a visit even with no car event on.
