    These ones are very easily identified as being from Street Machine's 1987 Cruise for Charity, from John o' Groats to Land's End. The 1500-mile cruise ran from 6th-14th June with 78 cars taking part. All these photos are clearly from the finish at Land's End.


    1954 Pop survives on SORN


    There's no trace of this '57 Bel Air's registration, sadly
    Pop is Malc Farrant’s,and he still owns the car and still looks good in safe storage.

    i think the 57 was Ian ( forgot your surname ,sorry Ian) Al, do you know.

    I certainly do Ian.

    It was Ian Webb.

    He's still doing high end restos and has built quite a reputation for specialising in Facel Vegas. Malc worked with Ian for a number of years and between them did a lot of the metalwork on my 300E.

    Cruising into (or away from) the next show. Again, I've no idea where or when the event was, so if you have any suggestions please shout 'em out.


    1958 Austin A35 is still around today

    Dave and Rosi Burrill's 1981 Mini sporting ever-so '80s bodywork modifications


    1928 Model A roadster is still around but in a somewhat altered form - it now appears in the guise of a1930 sedan


    I've no idea what's become of this tall T but doesn't it look good? I imagine it's probably a Ray's Rods body.


    '53 Pop 'Black Rose' was built at the tail end of the '70s by Hampshire's John Cross, taking its name and mural from the Thin Lizzy album Black Rose: A Rock Legend. It ran a 1600GT motor and 2000E gearbox, and looked very nice. Having lost its nice paint during the passage of time, it was being rebuilt by an owner in Bolton in 2015.


    Morris Minor looks pretty good with a vinyl roof and Minilites, although what I take to be some kind of Continental kit rather resembles an advanced tumour


    Gary Belcher's famous Jag V12-engined T-Bucket from 1979, now preserved exactly as it was then in the Haynes Motor Museum




    1930 Model A Fordor resto rod is still alive and kicking

    It's nice that there was still evidence of truly low-budget, amateur rodding at the end of the '80s. This T doesn't look at all bad, although smaller lights would do it the world of good. It does appear to be on a surprisingly short chassis, though I wonder if it's just the size of the lights making the proportions look a bit off. Murals and stakeside pick-up bed are features one doesn't see all that often on a T. It appears to have a V8 which, given the small size of the car, is surely a Daimler.

    Not one but two shots of Malc Farrant's Pop again...


    ...and a similarly smart-looking Pop. Sadly, the reg is on a 2008 Mazda.




    1930 Model A coupe with a healthy chop looks really good, but hasn't been on the road since 2000




    Probably a hangover from the 1970s, this 1971 Vauxhall Victor was a particularly creative exercise, but hasn't been used since 1996.


    An interesting little Toyota HiAce named 'Teacher's Pet'
