Well, it was that time of year again, organised by CombustionPunks’ very own Yetidragon, the ‘super Peaks’ meet combines a number of local meets, that all then converge on the infamous Cat & Fiddle pub, for MX5Nutz members to all have a bit of a chat, and ogle each other’s cars, in the scenic location that is the Peak District.
This year, we were blessed with blue skies and sun, despite it being November! Admittedly, it was a bit chilly, but that’s to be expected, and the fact that there was no rain meant it was roofs down for (almost) everyone.
As always, there was a great selection of cars turn up, ranging from completely standard, through to pretty heavily modified examples. There was the usual selection of turbo’d and supercharged models to tease and tempt.
This white mk1 was one of the more extremely modified examples, sporting a turbo conversion, as well as a full body kit, roll bar, and a wing.
This RS Limited on the other hand, unfortunately missing the standard RS Limited bucket seats, was relatively subtle, with just a Racing Beat rear bumper, aftermarket exhaust, and a tow hook swaying it from OEM.
Parked just next to the above RS Limited was this tidy little mk1 (anyone noticing the trend here? There seemed to be very few mk2s or mk3s at this event unfortunately), that looked very purposeful, and looked as though it was ready to hit the B roads with a vengeance.
Unfortunately, by the time some of the guys arrived, the car park was full, meaning some of the guys were left to park on the road/round the back of the pub, but, I’m not one for missing those, and hiding around the corner was this lovely mk1 belonging to ‘Niggle’, now, I’m particularly fond of this car, thanks to the choice mods, and just how clean it is. Delicious!
Of course, I have to whore my own car just a touch, and despite it being particularly filthy on the day, it looks remarkably clean on this picture. Sharing the frame with the mk1 of ‘Greendrifter’, a rather tasty Lotus Elise, and just in the background, a rare, and beautiful sight on UK roads, an E46 BMW M3 CSL. Automotive porn. So, of course, I just had to get a picture to finish this post off…
So, all in all, a great day, many thanks goes to Yetidragon, and the organisers of each of the local meets for doing such a great job at organising it, and a huge thanks to everyone who came, and made it such an enjoyable day.
