This is in Margate, so it would be nice to see some of you Kent and Essex boys there.

Looks interesting but I can't commit to that date yet. When would be the latest time to make a decision to attend?
KIMI 1 : RX-7 1st Gen "hybrid"; 1983 S2 running gear in a 1985 S3 shell, SORN'd, long term resto project
KIMI 2 : RX-7 1st Gen; 1983 S2, "identical" twin to KIMI 1, on the road :-)
Plus a 2004 Full Bridgeported RX-8 too!

Wow that was taken when I first arrived. I moved about a minute later so I could park next to a Toyota MR2 AW11.

Photos to follow.

Located in the lovely seaside town of Margate. Which meant a 2 hour leisurely cruise to arrive at 9am. Ah bliss.
In it's 4th year the show has grown, with 1400 cars on display this year. Which meant a great variety of cars to cater for most tastes. Which makes it even more baffling that the "Top Twenty" awards when to the usual culprits - minis, Ford Escorts, VW campers. Lame.
The sun was on show too, which made for a beautiful autumn day.

First up is the Toyota MR2 AW11 that i spotted on the way in which made the perfect JDM friend to park next too.
Image

This one is for Nic, cos it is like a Chevette but bigger. It is an in-joke that even he has probably forgotten.
Image

The owner of this Starion was a nice guy. He has another 3 in various states. This one recently freshened up and back on the road. Those boxed arches and 80s angles. Mmmm.
Image

Yes it is a Ford, but a very well looked after example.
Image

Hold the press! Another Ford? Well yes, but this time because "racecar". And you all know I like stripes.
Image

This one is featured for nostalgic reasons. My mate in high school owned one, same colour, and he would give it hell. It would hit the tonne on a downhill stretch so he claimed.
Image

It is so cute you just wanna pick it up and put it in your pocket.
Image
Image

It is a car show, there has to be a Mustang.
Image

Those bloody Aussies reckon they are the only ones that can do a good ute, pfft. Example A.
Image

You could not missed this it was massive.
Image

My mate back in NZ has a mk3 Spitfire. So I took photos of this Mk4 to give him some motivation of how nice his could look.
Image
Image

A family friendly Ferrari. I think he is gonna regret that idea. "Yeah honey, I am off to to a car show for the day. Shame there is not enough room for you and the kids.....DOH!"
Image

Mmmm denim. Yeah you missed a bit, bottom left. That's it.
Image

It is those boxed arches again, damn.
Image

I had to have a chat with this guy. Why look after such a "normal" car? Not a GT4, only 1.8L, a lot of miles, and he is the 14th owner. Gotta love it though.
Image

For those that love louvres. I snapped this from a distance. I was not taking any chances - it was a Mustang leaving a car show! Stand back.
Image

More photos (if you want?) to come, just need to come up with another theme.
