We had gone to my Mum's near Chester on Saturday and stayed over, so Sunday morning saw us undertake a rather enjoyable one hour cross country dash to RAF Cosford near Wolverhampton. This was for a Midlands Breakfast Club which we were going to with Yam MINI. We were running a little late but still got parked with the rest of the Yam crew on what was a very cold morning.
The Costa coffee shop was our first stop. Now in truth I'm not a Costa fan but this time we had some lovely honeycomb flavoured hot chocolate as well as Cosford's own bacon and sausage baps. Always a good start. We had a natter with some of the Yam gang but in truth we spent the morning exploring the cars and planes in the company of S Monster aka Craig, whose dry humour was most amusing.
The mission as we so often do at these meets, was to choose our favourite cars from the offerings on display and often this is not the most exotic, but the cars that we can most see being in the Beastie Stable. So the lovely Ferraris were passed by as just too exotic. The Cayman S was a contender of course but finally Lady Peanut was rather taken with a Nisan 370 Z, though the annual car tax at over £800 gave her pause to think. For me, the Toyota GT86 beauties were very appealing, while Craig plumped for a classic Lotus Elan, though I did wonder if me saying "You could just picture Emma Peel getting out of one of those" affected his judgement. His other contender was the Blue Cayman S, as he felt that he could get this approved from his better half, as " the colour matched that of his new front door" and so Lynne might well like that!
We reached the point when we could stand the cold no more, so had a look at the planes on display, which actually, are really quite wonderful and should not be forgotten while you are admiring the cars.
The weather was dull and cold and I am in truth a fair weather photographer as I do not like my hands being cold, so to make this selection a tad different they are all rendered in the style of Fuji Provia ISO 100 film. So I hope you enjoy the photos from our day and as always click any photo to see a slideshow from the day.
