Brodie Castle Classic (Photo Heavy)

I hope this is OK, I just thought it might be of interest even though there are very few 5s in it.

I decided to go for a run in the car today. No real goal in mind just somewhere northish. However, as we reached Brodie on the A96, we noticed a number of really interesting cars on the road and realised that there must be something on. It turns out that there was a classic car show on at Brodie castle and it was just starting so a lot of the cars were still arriving.

However, just before we get into that, we also stopped at Baxters in Fochabers and I saw a Fiat 124 Spider. I got in close to have a look and was surprised by the interior. I hadn't realised that they were based on the MX-5 ND. The interior is identical (including having the "floating" entertainment system on the dash) and even things like side mirrors and side indicator repeaters look very familiar. So, here's a picture of the Fiat:

Right, on to the show. I didn't photograph everything and I haven't even included all of my photos. There were around 300 cars there and the weather was pretty decent for the most part (a couple of light showers).

Always nice to see a prancing horse (F430):

imgur. Just drag and drop files onto the page*, get the share links from the drop down menu on the picture, copy and paste the links, job done. No need for an account or anything and, as far as I know, hosting is permanent (I've been using it for years and I'm not aware of any broken links).

*You can drop multiple files at a time but doing it with large numbers of files sometimes works a bit weird (about 5 is usually fine). For the above post, I drag/dropped a file then just kept doing so with every subsequent file I wanted to add because I was typing a little bit about each one in the forum text entry box here anyway.


I posted this on another forum entirely...

and use the "BBCode (Forums)" option for the code to copy/paste into the forum.
