After far too long, I finally decided I was far along enough in the engine compartment that I should put the hood and fenders back on. I still have a few fine adjustments on the engine before I am ready to fire it up for the first time, but the clock is ticking for summer cruising.
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
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
Model A Coupe & Roadster
Plus a really cool Mercedes Hot Rod, not my normal thing, but very nice..
