Default Stoneleigh 2018

Had a great day at Stoneleigh last Sunday. The sunburn made a change from the usual frost bite

There was a huge turnout of cars in the club fields no doubt helped by the fine weather but there were large unfilled areas in the halls which was disappointing. Also, less parts suppliers as more things go on-line. I didn't see anything new or exciting in the halls but spotted a few very nice cars in the fields.

This 1958 Fairthorpe caught my eye. A very pretty little car that looked like it had just been completely rebuilt and painted.

And parked alongside was this Rochdale Olympic....

Of course there were lots of beautiful Sabres....

And these rather quirky Liege roadsters...

The engine is from a Suzuki. You can see the Suzuki sign on the side of the bonnet. it was an approve fit for the Liege. most of them had a 850cc Reliant engine with a 4 speed box but the Suzuki had 5 gears. it is a very similar set up to the Caterham 160 even with the same live rear axle from Suzuki. Nice pictures by the way!

Thanks Bladerunner! I completely missed the Suzuki badge on the bonnet
