Brits blossom at Classic Car Sunday

31st July 2021

It can sometimes be easy to forget just how rich the UK's automotive history is until you see the sheer variety of cars gathered in one place. Classic Car Sunday at Breakfast Club was definitely the place to be for any domestic car nerds with everything from a concours winning Austin Allegro Estate to a double Le Mans entered Triumph TRS lining up on our circuit.

The once maligned but now eminently collectible 1970s were well represented this year with the once overlooked Jensen Healey, Mini Clubman and Austin 1100 out in force. The full gamut of David Brown Aston Martins was present; from the early DB2/4, graceful DB4, infamous DB5 and even a rare DB6 Volante.

Flying Bs were also much in evidence from a menacing, Art Deco-styled Blue Train to the impossibly gorgeous R-type Continentals while former rival, then stablemate and now rival once again Rolls-Royce was also present, our favourite being a 1930s ‘Woody Wagon’, once a cabriolet but, after being shot up during the war was rebodied by its artistocratic French owner. Out in force as always were the myriad examples of British sporting two-seaters – Triumph Stags, MGBs, Triumphs all the way from TR3 to TR6 plus some Spitfires and GT6s and, of course, the Jaguar E-type which is celebrating its 60th birthday. We wonder what cars will be appearing at breakfast Club in a few decades time?
