  Sunday 6th of May saw the 35th Heathersgill Vintage Rally. Held at Carlisle Airport, Cumbria. A sunny and hot day for a change, saw an entry of 500 exhibits, trade stand and craft stalls.

  I took my '79 C-81 with finger bar. (Sickle bar to the US.) '78 C-121 (The Black Horse) Modified for ploughing and my '78 Sears/Roper GT16 with B&S twin.

 Due to being an official, car steward, general dogs body and fount of all knowledge, (so some thought), I didn't manage to get as many photo's as I would have liked. What I did get are as follows.

 

 First some of the things for sale in the auction.

 

Restoration project anyone? It's a David Brown. Or was.

Thanks for the excellent pictures. I had a 1957 Renault Dolphin and without a doubt it was one of the worst cars I ever owned. The Allen Oxford saw looked quite dangerous. Loved the old cars , it is amazing to see old vehicles in great shape. Loved the cross cut saw , my father had one , had 2 handles and no petrol motor and was not a favorite item to use .  I forgot to mention the Robin . After the tall chap on Top Gear tried driving one I knew I did not want any part of the that car.

Great shots Norm. I love all the pics on that side of the pond. The Renault gives me the heebie geevies. I name every one of those toilets I see as "The Unfixable Car" They make K cars seem like a Rolls! :auto-swerve:
