Classic Car gathering at Ipoh Railway Station

There was a classic car gathering at the Ipoh Railway Station this morning. Didn't hear about it? Yea, neither did I, until Dad asked if I'd want to go last night; he only knew because his friend was one of the organisers. Arrived at the railway station at about 0945 with Mom and Dad, after having breakfast at old town.

I was expecting jams, massive throngs of people moving about and lotsa nice shiny cars at the gathering, but there were only about 30 classic cars, maximum, and about the same number of people there. No problem getting a nice parking spot right behind the classic cars either. Sounds boring? Yea, it was; only spent about 5 minutes there before leaving.

There weren't too many cars either, just two Mini Mokes (fugly), the usual VW Beetles (BORING), Mini Coopers (cute, yea, but boring also), some old school Opels, a Ford Escort belonging to Dad's friend (the guy has about 7-8 of em at his home the last time I went), and finally, some nice Alfas, Rovers and Triumphs. One guy even had the nerve to park a Range Rover between the classics and pass it off as one too :( I just realised I didn't get any good pics of the nicest Alfa GTVs and Giulias, feel like kicking myself now in the ass now, but first I gotta figure how to get my feet to reach my ass :(

Pics of a few worthy subjects here, didn't bother to take pics of all the cars, and didn't put much effort in taking the pics too, hence the bad angles, don't complain :p

Haha, that's all the lame pics. I'll do better next time when I see nicer cars! Today's gathering would be totally disappointing if not for the nice Alfas and Triumphs.
