best of 2019: photographers’ favourite pics

LUC LACEY Mick Walsh’s period attire always adds to the imagery, transporting you back in time, and for me this picture captures Mick in his element. Shooting it tight allows for a closer look at all the wonderful details of the Scarab Mk1 sports-racer, while using a slower shutter speed helps to add some movement to the scene. JAMES MANN The Aston DB3S and Jaguar D-type back-to-back was a great shoot. We found a stretch of the old A40 that was broad and smooth, with not another car in sight, and riding in the DB3S for the cockpit shot with the D-type tearing by was an evocative moment that I hope I captured in my photograph… If only it had a soundtrack! JOHN BRADSHAW The Riviera was probably the biggest car we’ve…

waterside wonders on the south coast

A century of motoring came together to brighten Hythe Marina Village in Southampton on 24 November, with modern supercars joined by early rarities at Classics and Supercars on the Quay. More than 280 vehicles were on display, many originally from across the Atlantic. Mustangs of all ages, from the early fastbacks to modern incarnations and much in between, proved as popular as ever. Corvettes and Stingrays, plus Dodge Challengers and Pontiac Firebirds, were among those representing the rest of America’s muscle. But perhaps the highlight was a rare Studebaker Avanti. The well-attended event celebrated all aspects of the classic vehicle world, including modified models and stock survivors such as a 1953 Citroën Traction Avant and late MG Y-type. And there was huge variety among the European fare, from Vauxhall Chevettes, Vivas and…

commonwealth classics converge

Australia’s annual celebration of all things British returned for its 44th showing on 1 December, as more than 300 classics turned out in force for Terribly British Car Day in Queanbeyan Park, near Canberra, New South Wales. This year’s event was hosted by the Triumph Car Club and drew exhibitors from as far afield as Melbourne, Sydney, Wagga Wagga, Newcastle and Pambula, with British classics even travelling from the spiritual home of Aussie V8 Supercars, Bathurst. As in previous years there were prizes for the best-presented club displays and individual cars. The Club Shield went to the local ACT Mini Club, which laid on an impressive display to mark the model’s 60th anniversary assisted by the local BMW Mini dealership. One of the stars of the stand, Scott Yates’ brightly coloured…

alfas gather at beach spot

Members of the NSW division of the Alfa Romeo Owners’ Club of Australia drove south from Sydney in late November to enjoy lunch at the Headlands Hotel in Austinmer, perched on a rocky outcrop overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Postponed following the region’s devastating bushfires, the run featured 15 owners in Alfas new and old, including a lone black 105-series Spider, a quartet of the classic Bertone-styled 105 coupés (and only one was red!), plus a rare 1980s Giulietta saloon. The oldest were a Giulietta Sprint coupé and Spider (above), both red and left-hand drive.…

federation update

The FBHVC moved to a new stand at the NEC Classic Motor Show in November, with the promise of a unique display of vehicles. Our 1953 Midland Red double-decker bus was unmissable, and with the increasing focus on contemporary electric vehicles we featured three classic examples: a 1912 Baker Electric, a 1974 Zagato Zele city car – the only vehicle actually manufactured by the styling house – and a 1940 electric motor and bespoke gearbox manufactured by Rosengart to replace the ubiquitous Austin Seven’s engine. Motorcycles were represented by an Abingdon King Dick from 1930 and a Matchless motorcycle and machine gun sidecar combination that was produced in 1914 and declined by both the British and Russian armies! Other rare cars included the only surviving Rosengart Sutosix SuperSept Coupé, a Trojan Utility Car…
