Mayday at Popham

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

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!

Spring Meet Bank Holiday Monday Newbury Showground

After the disappointment of the non arrival at Wheels Day, John Barron and I took a trip over to Newbury Showground which is a nice short hop.

This event was much better than last year both attendance and weather wise.

A smattering of American vehicles and some interesting vendors made it a good day out.

The highlight for me was a lovely Willy’s Knight Phaeton

New Years Day at Phoenix Green

It’s New Years Day so it was off to Phoenix Green for the annual car meet.

Reasonable turn out of American and American related vehicles.

The weather wasn’t so kind this year which was reflected in the number of cars in attendance.

 

 

Took the A to a New Show!

Took the A along to the inaugural Wellington Country Park Farm Shop Car Rally.

For a new show the turn out was excellent, good American car turn out.

A number of A’s were present including one I hadn’t seen before and is amazingly local!

John Cochran’s truck was also present, after he and Meg had taken a long trip to the Goodwood Revival (110 miles :))

Classic Car Show Popham Airfield UK May 2nd 2016

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!

Retrofestival 2015 Newbury

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.

Berkshire Motor Show Prospect Park Reading

Took a trip to a very local car show today, than two miles away in fact!

Not too many American cars but what was there was of pretty good quality.

Some Australian Muscle was also on show.

Highlight for me was a very nice Cadillac.
