"GOF UK"possibly the largest gathering of LZ's outside of the US

Recommended Posts

Well we did it, 6 Lincoln Zephyrs & a LZ powered Jenson, all pre war, all on the same field & all running!

The date was Sunday 27th July, the venue was the "rally of the giants" & the UK Lincoln Zephyrs were out in force, it's rumoured we out numbered tri-chevy's on the day!

Excellent effort by Colin Spong in bringing the 3 37's, Bernie's 38 looked superb & picked up a prize, Julian's 40 continental made its ROG debut, Mike William's 38 Jenson complete with LZ V12 gave something for everyone to talk about (sorry Mike, the photo's I took of you car didn't come out too well, it was either the sunshine or your great paint) not to mention my own 39 that made the 300+ mile round trip without too many problems.

Well done to all, hard luck on not making it to Peter Smith in his 37, who bravely set of on a 500 mile round trip but unfortunately broke down.

Enjoy the photos & look out for a few words in "the way of the zephyr" mag, as well as in "classic & sports car".

Thanks for posting the pics Pete. So can we get into double figures next year? Maybe a Euro GOF! Thank you Pete Smith for the key fobs - a great gesture that didn't deserve a cracked manifold.

Rally of the Giants is on the 19th of July this year at the same venue "Knebworth House", can we beat last years number of seven V12's.

Worth a try!

Any members from Europe fancy bringing their Zephyrs across?
