VMCC Dorset car and bike night 2017

The second Wednesday in July and the annual invite for classic and vintage car owners to turn up and show their machinery at the club night is out. Fine weather this year and a new venue at the Henstridge Golf Club saw a good turnout on both the bike and car front with some really special stuff both two and four wheeled.

Riley RM

Old school Ford V8 hot rod. An original State
side rod from the fifties currently fitted with a
5.7 litre Corvette lump.

Awesome front anchors on the Ford.

Austin 7 chummy.

BSA Rocket Gold Star.

VW Kubelwagen in North African spec.

Kubelwagen interior.

And the immaculate engine bay.

MZ 301. I've got a soft spot for these after hiring one in Turkey
on holiday once. Would like to re-acquaint myself some day.

Honda XL600. Now a classic in its own right.

Triumph Trophy 650.

Yamaha Super Tenere 750.

Lovely AC Ace Bristol from 1957. This car
was sent out to Hong Kong from new where
it competed in the Macau Grand Prix in '57 and
'58 gaining second place both times.
