at the Thurton Classic Car show & autojumble

When you spot a 480 and wonder if it's someone from the forum: ask it here! One rule: do NOT post registration plates.

I went along thinking I might see zapcity(marc)'s green GT, but instead saw a stallholder with this

Celebration no 261
Stopped for a chat and discovered it was marc's friend Rob - hopefully the two of them will come along to the October meet.

Must have missed you as I saw your cool white turbo in the car park.

Went up to see Rod as he had a stall, but didn't think he would take the 480.

Nice little show and jumble. Saw a 164 and a PV544 too.
Lots of parts if you own a Ford or Triumph!

I'm coming in October even if I have to trailer it there!
1994 480GT - arrived!!
XC60 and XC70 for the daily grind.
C70 Coupé Convertible for the sunny days. Should sell it but can't!

Amazing - I walked all round the carpark looking for a green GT before I left, where did you hide it ?
Glad to hear you are definitely coming in October - one on a trailer in the 480 convoy will be a first !! :rofl:

I came in the C70 today.

480 is having the front bumper painted so off the road for a while.

Still can't get the front windows working, so not good for this weather! Paid for two CEM's from adverts on here to swap out, but haven't received either yet. Annoying!

Nice to see a picture of Rod's car, I know it has a fully functional dashboard now :)
