*Report* Local Classic Car Meet Scarcliffe
The Horse and Groom pub Scarcliffe have been doing a classic car meet 1st and 3rd Thurday for a few months now. The boss goes every time and has been asking me to go in cab for ages now. So last night, Clare was at work and Simon knew I was home alone so he asked again and this week I gave in. It's not far from me and it was a nice night so why not.

Luckily the car was still reasonably clean from Ford/Jap at weekend and just needed a mist and wipe and some fresh tyre gel.

I was a little bit apprehensive pulling up to a classic car meet in Bigcab. It's not like I could sneak in and park at the back is it?
But to be honest it wasnt as bad as I thought. I had a few people looking round it and asking questions and the general opinion was that it wasnt their thing but they appreciated the work. I'll take that as a win. lol

It's not a huge meet (I'm sure we could change that) but on a walk round it there were a few nice gems. The venue had/has potential to be a nice meeting point with a grassed area at the back with plenty of benches in the seating area.

Anyway some pics of the few cars I took.

Strangley drawn to this beaut

Okay its not a classic but a 5 series on 19" spider alloys does it for me.

The next meet is in 2 weeks. I recon we could have a few extra cars for them to look at.

RE: *Report* Local Classic Car Meet Scarcliffe
The Rover Sterling is a 2500cc V6 Coupe. It was the top of the range in it's day so I'd say it should be a future classic. I'm not saying it'll ever be the same as an old Roller or Jag but it will be one of those cars that stick around.
