The Sluggard - very speedy 1911 London-Edinburgh model.
A WWII Lancaster bomber flies over the P&A Wood workshops
A privately-owned Merlin engine, which was run during the afternoon
A 1918 Le Rhone engine which was also started (but sadly after we left)
A Locomobile steamer makes its exit from the parade. Braking arrangements seem alarmingly minimal.
An electric town car parades in perfect silence
Laurel and Hardy waiting to commit mayhem!
The 2-cylinder 10HP car owned by Bentley Motors
A 4-cylinder 'Light 20' similar to the TT-winning car
