I came across these two gems today parked in the corner of our evening eatery:

I used to be indecisive, now I'm not so sure!
I used to ride on two wheels, but now I need all four!

Anyone like White :?:

When did you last see a Mazda MX5 in white? Maybe they are all over the place, but struck me as not the usual when I saw this on the WB and Sons list for the June Sale. If you spot one in white, today post it up on the thread.

The MX-5 looks good in white :D

At the show today - see my photos in another thread - there was a bright blue MX-5, almost like that Scirocco above. It looked sensational...

I did rather like this Escort Mexico I saw today...

Not sure of the colour but I like it - a lot...

Owned by an ex-colleague of mine... It's pristine and concours but not that he thinks so!

Jim when you look at the gallery of photos you took at the show, don’t know if it’s just because of the sunny day but the whole lot is a feast of colour, as you scroll through, even the white ones :-D

This one could easily take its place in the two tone or special editions thread

Fiesta Sandpiper if I am not mistaken

I believe it is Neil, an a very lovely one too...

It truly was a most gorgeous day... I went for a run late afternoon and it rained on me! The weather just held out for the show... The weather gods clearly love classic cars :-D

Dont think I have seen one in this shade before. Interesting or awful not sure, and not a fan in general of green cars but...it would stop me in my tracks and have me reaching for the camera if I saw it in real life!

That colour, I suspect, will be a bit 'Marmite'

I love Marmite but I don't love that colour...

Hope the camera manages to capture the striking colour of this Citroen. Probably the first of that model I have seen in that shade of red with the black "accents". Its a well done from me!

Another TR7 cropping up in a shade of green.

Not much of a walkround video but at least it shows Brooklands green to be far duller than the still photography, but are either "right" :?: :-D

There seem to be a lot of new shades of green arriving on scene now on the new cars.

That TR7 is in what I call a good, solid green! Otherwise known as Lawnmower Green...
