An excellent well organised car show in a beautiful location, cars of all shapes sizes and ages were present.

 

Here’s the US related contingent of attendees. Classic wise the Galaxy, and the early red Mustang deserve a particular mention. On the modern  front the Bullitt Mustang and the Ford GT stood out. There were also a couple of very nice 32 Hot Rod roadsters.
