April bought us the first Sunday Scramble at Bicester Heritage Centre and always there was a brace of interesting vehicles on display. Last time I attended the leaves were falling and people were making the best of the autumn sun. Now the spring bulbs were starting to bloom and everyone was emerging from their winter hibernation, which meant a number of new vehicles I hadn’t seen before.
Whether you’re into bikes, cars, commercials or military there’s always something to feast your eyes on and usually plenty to spark a different interest for those with open minds.
Frank Cassidy’s beautiful custom Harley Davidson bobber is a delight for the eyes. It has so many details that even after spending a fair amount of time admiring it, you can still find new things. It’s a real work of art.
I keep getting drawn to Vaillant liveried Porsches, there’s just something about that colour scheme.
This bare-bones Rolls Royce is a regular at the Sunday Scrambles and I love it. To me, it’s a full-on hot rod. Stripped down to just the essentials and wearing its patina with pride. It looks so much fun, probably a bit of a handful too, but I’d love to have a go. Although I’m not sure I’d want to do a winter rally in it.
The Douze Coupes ‘Rat’ Alpha 105 Giulia 1300, it’s a little beast of a ride.
Those that own military vehicles always appear to love accessories. Everything has to be period correct and this war time Harley Davidson appeared to be spot on.
A pair of beautiful Indian motorcycles. The one with white tyres is a 1930 Daytona Board Track the other I believe is 1030’s vintage.
Sports Purpose had this gorgeous conda green Porsche 911 S-T up for sale. Perfect vintage, what with it also being a ‘71 model like me.
Lamb Engineering wheeled out this wild BMX inspired ride, which I believe is based on an old speedway bike.
Cherry of a ’64 Ford Falcon. Daily driver? Streetcar? NASCAR wannabe? Who knows, but it’s definitely a great looking car.
Not sure I get the idea of mixing up split-rims, but they look pretty wild. The Mk2 Golf that was wearing then was super clean.
Guy’s Porsche 911 GT3 is always spotless in its Rothmans livery.
Mean looking GT-R.
It was close-up shots of cars like this Porsche 964 3.8RS in Car magazine that first sparked my interest in photography all those years ago.
There were a few big cats that had come out to play, but this one stood out for me.
