I was attending a car show/rally in Sweden this weekend. Unlike the ones I usually attend (hey, let’s compare carburettor configurations on our Morrises (Morris’? Morri?)) this one was a bit more high brow. A Jaguar D-type from Ecurie Ecosse (“It’s the original paintwork”, the owner proudly said as he threw a ring binder onto its back with a painfully metallic sound), a Ferrari 500 TRC and more gullwings than you normally find Corvettes on a regular meetup.

We unsuccessfully tried to blend in with our puny MGA and Dyna Panhard.
