The Bradford Classic
I finally made it to a show for the first time in over 12 months.
Despite being cosmetically challenged, the car got many positive comments and even got the attention of the news editor of Classic Car Weekly who interviewed both me and the owner of the only other Dolomite that was there. Keep a look out for a write-up within those pages. This is the other Dolomite.
This car was one of the last Dolomites built but wasn't registered until 1982 just over 2 years since it was built. The car is in original unrestored condition, a complete contrast to my not-so-original rolling restoration. The winner of the show was this Jensen Interceptor in a fetching shade of yellow.
There were also a couple of locally built Jowetts. This is an unrestored Javelin which is still in regular use.
The other Jowett was this Jupiter which won the Lord Mayor's choice. This was the only photo I got of the car with the bonnet up showing the flat four engine.
The only other Triumphs there were a couple of Stags, a TR3 and an Acclaim in the same Opaline Green as Becky II
