GALPOT Weekly #50

Welcome to GALPOT Weekly #50 a review of the last seven posts at "Gettin' a li'l psycho on tyres".

Aston Martin DB 2/4, Danville Concours d'Elegance

The week started with a trip to Danville Concours d'Elegance with Geoffrey Horton where this Aston Martin DB2/4 with coachwork by Serafino Allemano was one of several one off vehicles on display.

MG NA, Avenue Drivers Club, Queen Square, Bristol
The MG NA which I looked at on Tuesdays blog features a hidden rear petrol tank making it easy to distinguish from it's K-Type predecessor.

Jaguar XK 140 FHC, Danville Concours d' Elegance

On Wednesday it was a huge thrill to welcome Jay 'California Streets' Wollenweber to the GALPOT contributing team, Jay also attended the Danville Concours d'Elegance where he met Geoffrey and his XK140 FHC SE MC.

Buick Caballero, Danville Concours d'Elegance

Jay's photographs also featured on Americana Thursdays Land Yacht blog which included this 1957 pillarless estate / station wagon Buick Century Caballero.

Ferrari 365 GTS, Danville Concours d'Elegance

Ferrari Friday's blog overdosed on California Sunshine and also included an error, I erroneously had the spyder above down as a 330 GTS, it has since transpired that the car is one of just 20 365 GTS models, essentially a slightly updated 330 GTS body with faired headlights and a larger 4.4 litre /267 cui motor.

Lotus 16, Silverstone Classic

Yesterdays blog featured a couple of 1958 Lotus 16's with oblique mounted motors.

Aston Martin DBS, Sherbourne Castle, Classics at the Castle

Today's Sunday Special feature is about a six cylinder Aston Martin DBS that outwardly appears to be a V8 DBS for the benefit of viewers of the television series "The Persuaders".
