Cars in the Park...


Lichfield city held a car show at the weekend, and as a bonus, this year it was free!
There were acres of static car displays, ranging from this humble little car for doing the shopping....


... to a more exotic ex-rally Ford RS 200 (drool)



Fancy, shiny cars parked in rows are all well and good, but this sort of machinery is best experienced in action. To my glee, there was an arena set aside for some petrol burning, larking about.


There was a good variety of off-roaders. This was one of the specialist 4x4s. Four wheel steering and full active hydraulic suspension, meant there wasn't much that could trip it up.


"Did you feel a bump dear?"... "Yes, I think we may have run over the bungalow again."





The new speed bumps put in by the council didn't seem to have any effect.



My favourites were the mega fast 'Tomcat' style machines... how fast???!!!!



The roar of some of the V8 engines was fantastic.







Drivers should stay alert to other road users at all times, and not be distracted by their passengers...



Seeing a Ford Focus jump this high over a ramp is impressive, but a common weekly spectacle at the local Sainsburys car park come Saturday night as anxious drivers hit the speed bumps trying to beat closing time on the 'beer run'...
