Anglia 105E Zetec – Practical Magic

Another South London Classic although this one is on the border of Kent near Sidcup. I met up with Scott Jeffery back in July to photograph his Anglia 105E with a Zetec SE engine swap. Despite the best of planning I couldn’t quite get the car to the original location… it appears a barrier has grown down the small dirt track I had originally planned to take it down. Despite the initial hiccup we found a nice quiet location where the softness and subtlety of the grass blended in well with the B-Road/Race car practical drive.

Having loved the shaped of the Chevy Bel Air (search my archives and you will find a few) Scott fell in love with the shape of the Anglia as the rear wings are similar in shape to those massive American fenders we all know to love. You can read the full article in the November issue of Classic Ford Magazine which is now only available on back issue. Hope you enjoy the images below from the shoot and that they act as inspiration for your next project:


MKI Escort South London Style

Classic South London looks this MKI Crossflow-powered 1700 Escort I photographed for Classic Ford Magazine has plenty of trick touches.

I met up with Stuart Woolley at his home in South London, I had an idea of the type of location I thought would suit this car but as am not local to the area was a little lost. Stuart said he knew a couple of local industrial estates we could take a look at, we drove past what I thought was the perfect location and about a mile down the road Stuart pulled over, I thought he was taking us somewhere specific. Having only seen the columns from the road I suggested that we go back and take a closer look, on entering the car park it became apparent that this car and the location were meant to be together.

Unbeknown to me Stuarts mother worked in the building that owned this space, after a friendly chat with the security guard who he also knows we were allowed to shoot. This has to be one of my favourite shoots of 2016 and I am so happy to finally be able to share it with you!
