The Old Crocks

Or as I should say, the veteran cars.

When I was a child it was less than a mile’s walk to go and see the veteran cars on their rally from London to Brighton. It took place on the first Sunday in November.

It still does, but it has been re-routed and goes past my sister’s house. We saw a good collection of cars back in 2002.


Three in one – there’s a good start!


The new overtakes the 1904 version.


The weather was awful, but then it was, as always, November.


This one dates from 1895.

And so does this one.


Looks like the driver is texting someone. Perhaps it wasn’t a criminal offence back then.

A final picture gives me some steam. This is an 1899 steam car.
