Thanks trigger, really enjoyed your pics, recognise a few of them, the Mini's at Snape look like the Warren Family from Hasketon, the Austin van is now owned by Mark Dunnett from Bealings,(and is for sale) Kevin Silburn owns the Vauxhall and the Morris 8 (the Vauxhall is also for sale) great pics, :)

A couple more for today, These are from outside the Crown pub on Felixstowe Road (Formally the Haven), Does anyone know the landlord or the story behind why there are always some really amazing cars parked on the forecourt?.

I'm going to have to pop in one day and ask, Looking at their website it looks like a really nice pub now inside. http://www.ipswichcrown.co.uk/


This is a Simca 1501 Special, I can't recall ever seeing one before, It sold recently on ebay for £185, It's not been on the road since 1983 http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/SIMCA-1501-GREEN-/270640986100?pt=Automobiles_UK&hash=item3f0375b7f4

It's a guy called Ben Flatman, his father made a million(s) from battery chickens ( no cracks about flat batteries please), Ben took over the pub two or three years ago now, he and his father (Paul) are members of the E A P C and have been for a few years, Paul has a large collection of all sorts of motors and often has several on display at the West Bergholt event at the end of July every year. Ben has quite a few himself now as your pics show us, as normal great pics trigger.
