When’s the Last Time You Saw a Lomax?

At the First Saturday car show in Colorado Springs last week…

lomaxThe Lomax was a British kit car was designed by Nigel Whall and based on mechanical components from the Citroën 2CV. The Lomax Motor Co of Willoughton began in 1982 and in the late 1980s production was transferred to the Mumford Motor Co. of Gigg Mill, Nailsworth, Gloucestershire, where it was produced until the early 1990s. By 2009 the car was being made by Cradley Motor Works of St Leonard’s-on-Sea, East Sussex. Stylistically its design is reminiscent of the Morgan Three Wheeler and consists of a fiberglass body mounted on an unmodified Citroën 2CV or Dyane floor pan. Later a steel tube chassis was introduced.

And this was just part of the show that was hosted by Pikes Peak Little British Car Group last Saturday.

An apology for those people who, during the PhotoWalk, asked where the Panasonic Lumix GX85 was. Yes, it was ordered and promised for delivery close to my birthday last month but is still yet to arrive. We’re not sure why but my guess is that demand for the camera is running high and I am far down the list of people who ordered the camera from this particular store in Oregon. Instead these images were shot with an Olympus E-M5 Mark I with newer 14-43mm kit lens.

Mary and I will not be attending July’s First Saturdays Car Show event because it’s our thirty-fourth wedding anniversary and we’re making other plans. But we plan to be back in Colorado Springs for the August event that will be hosted by Jaguar Club of Southern Colorado. Having owned two Jaguars and the accompanying love/hate relationship with them, we’re looking forward to seeing the cars and you too at the show. Maybe the Lumix GX85 will have arrived by then…
