GALPOT Weekly #34

Welcome to GALPOT Weekly #34 a review of the weeks blogs at "Gettin' a li'l psycho on tyres'.

Middle Barton Garage

Last week started with a look at some of the vehicles that turned up at the 25th Anniversary Party of Middle Barton Garage, which included a magnificent Bentley, the fearsome Tornado FIAT 600D GT Lotus TC that once belonged to David Render.

Austin A40 Somerset, Malta Classic Car Museum

Diamond Jubilee celebrations were marked on Tuesday with a look at an oddly named Austin A40 Somerset Coupé that is said to have been driven by HRH Queen Elizabeth II while on a trip to Malta in 1952.

Citroën 2CV, Goodwood Festival of Speed

Of all the cars I have owned the minimalist cheap and rugged Citroën 2CV's were easily the most fun, the 1954 Citroën 2CV I looked at on Wednesday is considerably more utilitarian than any of those I have owned.

Ford V8 30 Saloon, Bristol Classic Car Show

Americana Thursday's featured car was the UK assembled 1938 Ford V8 30 Saloon, seen above, which apart from the Right Hand Drive was identical to the US 1938 Ford de Luxe Sedan.

Ferrari 330 GT, Marin Sanoma C D'E

Ferrari Friday's blog was all about the nature of what is perceived when looking at vehicles like the Ferrari 330 GT above.

Lotus Mark 6, Bristol Classic Car Show

Yesterday I looked at this cute little Lotus Mark 6 which was restored over a period of 30 years.

Camaro, Shakespeare County Raceway

Today's post looks at some of the action and vehicles that were present at the Yanks and Gary's 34th Picnic held at Shakespeare County Raceway a couple of weeks ago.
