London Classic Car Show at Excel

I treated myself to a ticket for the London Classic Car Show at the Excel exhibition centre. Quite expensive for a student but it was worth it and only 3 stops away from me on the Docklands Light Railway!

Actually had a thoroughly good time and was there from 9:30 to 5!! Didn't see that coming.

Totally drop dead gorgeous - Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale

Jensen Button... opps.. Jensen Interceptor

Really gawwwguuus

Mini Metro... no wait, Metro Rally Turbo! hot stuff

205 Rally Turbo... actually a very large car indeed

Escort RS200

Lamborghini Contach anniversary - not a fan, but it looks nicer in real

The actual Italian Job Lamborghini Miura - just so sexy

Formula 1 classic!


Lamborghini Countach "periscopo" LP400 - beautiful the car, much more beautiful in real life than in a photo

Lamborghini Miura - also beautiful 

Lamborghini Countach 5000 Quattrovalvole - beautiful but not as much as the LP400
it's like a pumped up cartoon version of the LP400

A very fast Volkswagen! - the Bugatti Veyron

Aston Martin Lagonda - hideous


Renault 5 Turbo - yes, I still would

Citroen 2CV but a faked Yellow and Black Charleston look

12k for a fake!!
(if not fake then the paintjob is not correctly done)

Classic Formula 1

The name's Bond - the actual 007 Lotus Esprit

Can't get enough!!



London Classic Car Show & race track

Inside the Escort RS200 - very like my old Fiesta XR2!


JPS Lotus - a real Formula 1 car!

Just epic!!! Fandango style!

Escort RS200 - so ugly underneath!

The roundabout

Fast pass. On days like these...

Peeeowwww!! I wonder what...

Became of you...

Graham Hill's actual Lotus - fast

That Lotus - parked up

Now with added Jodie Kidd

The Lagonda - I think the designers pen slipped at the front

Typical Alfa - broken down

Toy bus - corgi bus

The Lamborghini Diablo - not pretty

Sing the theme tune - the actual Minder Ford Capri


Porsche GT3 - I like the GT2 though

Very big - Mercedes-Benz 600

Intake - Alfa Romeo Montreal

Vincent Black Shadow

Danger Mouse

A shame many of the cars don't drive there unaided

The only classic in the car park a Ferrari & not the Magnum one

Dell KB522 Wired Business Multimedia Keyboard

Now I have a 24" monitor on my laptop I find that the £5 keyboard is really not up to it. Hence the Dell KB522 Wired Business Multimedia Keyboard. Very nice. I have started my degree in Creative and Professional Wiring this year and think I have a lot of typing ahead, hence the keyboard. It was only once I got this I realised how hard I had to hit the keys on the old one, as first of all with this one it hurt I was hitting them so hard. Pretty much sorted on the computer front now. I bought Dell hoping for longevity from this item. I don't like to buy new stuff all the time from an environmental standpoint.

The Pioneer compact hi-fi

When I got a proper job I was able to start saving for something better and I bought a Pioneer compact Hi-fi which after a time I really started to hate. The Pioneer quality was lacking from this unit and really a lot of it was for show, like the twin display spectrum analyser. I hated the way the cassette and cd decks clunked about. Many things frustrated me with it, like th…
