Went along the Bromley Pageant of Motoring in Bromley, Kent, on sunday. A large one-day show in the broad area known as Greater London. The traffic queues were bad, but there were some terrific cars there though. Here's my selection....

Spotted this 1977 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ55 in the car park:

Always enjoy seeing your posts.
What's up with the fender doors on that Bristol 603?
(are they for maintenance access, storage, doggie door ... ?)

Thanks! Those fender doors have been a feature of Bristol models going back to the '50s. On one side you'll find the spare wheel and jack, and on the other side behind the other door is the battery and fuse box.

I wasn't there this time Simon, but you got a picture of my buddy sitting in the back of his Avenger estate. :)

^ That Avenger is a beauty, and you very rarely see Estate (wagon) versions these days.
