ISSUE 246Classic car enthusiasts come in all shapes and sizes. I was reminded of this on the A45 to Towcester, when in the space of a single roundabout my Daihatsu Charade was surrounded by cars from completely different ends of the spectrum. Travelling to the Festival of The Unexceptional, I was flanked by a BMW Z8 (complete with ‘World Is Not Enough’ number plate) on one side, and an early Lotus Seven on the other. With this peculiar cross-section stationary, a HIAB lorry peeled off from an adjacent junction with a banger-liveried Daimler DS420 hearse on the back. The BMW and Lotus were no doubt heading for the Silverstone Classic, the Daimler probably for Northampton Raceway.
