A visit to a very special car showroom!
A used car showroom isn't somewhere that I would have thought to visit to take pictures.
But it makes sense really, because at any moment in time they're like a little car museum, and you'd expect the quality of the cars to be pretty good!
I've been driving past a showroom called Richmonds for a couple of years now, and have always meant to drop in and have a look. So when Triber Davyn Smith mentioned that the guys in there were very friendly, and they didn't mind people taking pictures, off I went with trusty Canon in hand!
I popped in without the camera at first, and one of the owners made himself known. We chatted, I asked him if he minded me taking pictures (he didn't mind at all!) and then gave me the grand tour of the premises. Very impressive. They have a very beautiful showroom, a comprehensive workshop out back, a wash bay, and a whole pile of secure (monitored) lock up garages which people can rent out by the month to store cars in. Very cool.
So, to the cars! Richmonds have a very varied array of very nice cars. Veterans, Replicas, Classics, and Supercars all side by side. Here's a bit of a sample, I'll post more as I find time to work through the pictures (I went to two other events today, I've been a busy boy!)
Enjoy, and I hope you'll be patient and keep watching!
