Braving what was a dodgy looking weather forecast we headed off in the S10 to the annual show and auto jumble at Popham Airfield. The weather was pretty good with the rain mostly holding off. Not everyone braved the weather so the attendance was down, still a good show with some interesting cars to be seen of the American variety!
We took our annual jaunt to the classic car show at Popham Airfield which is a 40 minute drive from where we live. The weather outlook wasn’t great and impacted the turnout a little, but in the end the weather was pretty good, and the American attendance was of a good quality and a reasonable quantity. My favourite was a lovely blue 1947 Hudson Pickup
What a real shame this is, the Biscayne was the owners first car and the condition showed the amount of work he’d had lovingly put into the car. Not only was the Hellcat driver drunk, but I’m pretty sure it will be the tip of the iceberg in terms of too much car and not enough driving ability around the latest generation of muscle cars…
Got to feel bad for the owner of the Biscayne, as you can imagine the insurance probably won’t pay out.
On the upside the Hellcat may be crushed!

Had a great day at Retrofestival 2015 in Newbury, have to confess that I took the Triumph Herald to give it a run out after major brake work. Just ran out of time to get the A ready 😦 I did however take a lot of pictures of the great Yank turn out. Not only cars but plenty of Airstreams and RV’s were present.
Took a trip to the South Hants Vehicle Preservation Society Car Show & Autojumble 201 at Petersfield in Hampshire. Weather was excellent, autojumble interesting and the American car contingent were pretty well represented!
