More photos of the Shuttleworth Collection. I don't remember most of the names of the planes so if you want to find out what they are, you'll have to visit the collection.

Vauxhall 1930s racing car, and Bristol Boxkite.
Shuttleworth Collection

The Bristol Boxkite was built in 1910 ... actually, it's a replica built in 1963 and flown by Orvil Newton in "Those Magnificent Men in their Flying Machines, Or How I Flew from London to Paris in 25 Hours 11 Minutes." It was renamed The Pheonix Flyer for the movie.

Vauxhall 1930s racing car

Older than that: I think it's a Vauxhall Viper Special. Built 1913, rebuilt with a Wolseley Viper V8 aero engine in 1918. You see this model at vintage hillclimbs from time to time.

You're right. I have fixed that on the Flickr page.
