The usual enjoyable visit to historic Brooklands, this time for the Summer Classic Gathering and Auto Jumble.

Weather conditions where ideal, warm with a breeze and plenty of American transport on show.

Car of the Day for me was the 1929 DeSoto Model K, really beautiful car.

One of the more unusual cars to be seen on the UK show scene is the 1910 Stanley Steamer Runabout which was in fine running form.

Station Wagons are becoming very popular, this Torino Squire has nice patina

Good selection of trucks

Not the biggest fan of Rat Rods but the attention to detail here on this 27 T is something to behold

A few snakes, real and otherwise

Mustangs were also pretty well represented as you would expect, here’s a couple of the nicest on show. One with power added!

Street or Hot Rods?

Here’s the rest. good day all around!

There is no carmaker out there with as much influence over the custom industry as Ford. The Blue Oval has been making cars pretty much since cars were invented, and that in itself isn’t spectacular. What is amazing is the fact that, unlike the products the competition had to offer back in the early days of the industry, its cars are much more present in certain segments.

Although not limited to Ford, the hot rod and rat rod builders of today do seem to have a soft spot for the Blue Oval machines of old. We talked about many such creations in January, as part of the Ford Month here at autoevolution, but there are so many other builds out there we’ll probably keep bringing them under the spotlight for a long time.

This February, we’re celebrating Truck Month, and there’s no shortage of hot or rat rods in this segment either. For today, we dug up something titled 1939 Ford F1 Rat Rod, presently sitting on the lot of cars being sold by Gateway Classic Cars.
