Honest John report - interesting and well done Leo, but the massed ranks of BX were not there, which suggests a bit of jockeying for position for the newer, younger cars and their supporters. So the comments made are quite interesting. Being an old fart I struggle with the idea of things like a Range Rover P38 being a Classic, after all its named after a leading brand of filler! Yet things move on and some older marques face falling off the podium as the support fads, and owners choose their favourite style of Zimmer frame. A stand needs to be more than the same two guys, with the same two cars, aging in public. Some priority should be given to those who offer something more innovative each year. It makes their car interesting, even if I thought it might not be.
