Our little Maxi gathering was then joined by the lovely Damask red example.
Image
Image
Image
The standard of ADO 16 present was terrific.
Image
Astounding one owner Maxi 1500.
Image
MG Metro Turbo.
Image
I'm liking these more as time goes on,I did laugh when they came out though.

The Maxi line up,amazing how many positive comments we all got!
Image
W plate Metro,rat look! Love these early Metros,this was badged as miniMETRO,remember that ?
Image
Later in the day we all went for a road run (fantastic!) and parked up on the Brooklands banking for a photo shoot,I wasn't too confident in the Maxis handbrake ,lol.

The picture doesn't convey just how steep it is,you could barely stand at this point!
Image
And I bought a Beige Metro!

Phwoooaaarrggghh! (SP?) I've just had some exercise over that Sapphire Blue Maxi 1500. Sorry Martin, but it's even more gorgeous than your Limeflower one. :o

The brown Princess (Looks like a 4 Lt R) looks nice. It seems as if the Metro/Maestro/Montego models were the least common :?:

That looks like you had a good day!

Nice pics. I've never been a Marina fan, but the British Racing Green example with the spotties looks hot!! Of course my favourite is the Moke. :)

Quick work to get that car restored and painted ready for Brooklands - looking good eh?
