London car show

I’ve been meaning to post about stumbling across a Top Gear car show in London for a while now. There was a huge variety of cars on show in central London, taking over a main road near Oxford Street which must have taken some preparation. I didn’t see any of the tv show presenters or the mysterious Stig but it was still interesting to see slick fast cars and motorbikes, as well as some newer, innovative designs, that run on electricity.

I also enjoyed seeing some of the slightly older sports car designs that looked like they belonged in Hollywood films of the 60s or the racing car films of the 70s and 80s

What I enjoyed the most were the really old cars, from as far back as 1901, with lots of details which, for better or worse, are lost with modern cars. There were some so old that they had cranks at the front that needed to be turned to get the engines going. There were a couple that even featured in films of that time

The car show was a nice exhibit to unexpectedly come across, especially on a sunny day, my only regret was not having one of my cameras with me so I had to make do with my phone, but I think some the pictures still came out quite well
