Seeing in the New Year at the Phoenix Inn Hartley Wintney

Took a drive over to Hartley Wintney for the New Years Day meet at the Phoenix Inn, pretty well attended considering the weather wasn’t great. A good smattering of American cars, along with coffee and some decent grub was on offer!

Some nice vehicles included:

Hudson Super Six

Chrysler New Yorker

Ford Ranchero

Model A Coupe & Roadster

Mustangs

Plus a really cool Mercedes Hot Rod, not my normal thing, but very nice..
