Dallas Dig Out 2022 – Dallas Autoparts Cold Ash Berkshire

Dallas Dig Out 2022 – Dallas Autoparts Cold Ash Berkshire


The Dallas Dig Out is a regular event held three times a year at Dallas Auto Parts, who are a WW2 Jeep, M201 and Dodge specialists. The event is a combination of a military jumble and an open day at the Dallas Facility. For me the open day aspects and any vehicles that may be on display or an sale is reason enough for a visit.

If you’ve got £10,000 this could be yours?

Or this one which I believe is a 1945
Also comes with a trailer!

There is an impressive range of both spares and artifacts on display which are always worth a look.

Also on display is an excellent cutaway 1942 Willys MB which until recently was on display at an army museum.

A nice way to spend a few hours on a sunny October morning

The Winter Dig Out is as per above.

From Ford’s 1964 World’s Fair pavilion to vintage racing, the UK’s National Motor Museum has hours of video fun – Mike Austin @Hemmings


Being based in the UK, the footage tends towards European interests, such as rally racing and Ford’s consumer offerings there. Like this footage from the East African Safari Rally of 1969.

But there’s a whole lot of American Ford available too, from the 1969 Indanapolis 500 to NASCARDrag Racing, and even the 1967 US Grand Prix. A highlight, however, is a promotional real for Ford’s 1964/65 World’s Fair pavilion and the Magic Skyway ride, that takes passengers on a trip “through time and space, to the threshold of tomorrow” via Ford convertibles running on a conveyor belt

The National Motor Musuem add a new video to the Ford Heritage Channel every month. As is stands there’s so much great stuff in there that we might have to revisit a few of these videos on an individual basis. Enjoy!

Beaulieu International Autojumble 2017


Took a trip down to Beaulieu for the 2017 International Autojumble which was as always well attended with plenty of visitors from outside these shores displaying their wares.

Didn’t get what I really wanted, but I did pick up a few tools and perused the Car Corral and the parking are for the onsite Bonham’s auction which you can see in the gallery.

It appears these type of events are what is keeping Beaulieu going as the museum is falling behind the likes of the Haynes and  the British Motor Museum, (Gaydon), offerings, which is a real shame.

Beaulieu Autojumble September 5th 2015


Took a trip to the International Autojumble at Beaulieu National Motor Museum. A poignant day as Lord Montagu the person mainly responsible for Beaulieu as is now sadly died earlier this week.

The autojumble was full of the usual weird and wonderful stuff. Not a massive showing on the Yank front, but what was there was good. I especially liked Brian Bignell’s 1929 Model A Speedster, which as you can see was built to a really nice quality
