Anyway once there is was a nice evnt with a really good mix of Hot Rods, Customs, British and American Classics, modified cars, Old and modern Bikes etc. The Bloodhound SSC land speed attmpt car was there (or a mock up of it anyway) and I managed to get a poster of it signed by Richard Noble for my son James.Lots of stalls selling tools, automemoribilia, parts, clothing etc etc. Some good live music too, I particularly liked the band catballou who played a mixture of Rock N Roll, Blues and Rockabilly.
I glad I took lots of food and drink as the queues at the catering stalls were pretty bad, as was the queue for the loos. I think the event just hadn't catered for the number of people who turned up. Not sure how many cars were there but it was certainly into the thousands. There were a few Triumph's around but I think mine was the only GT6. One car that was of particular interest was a heavily modified TR5 with a big V8 and fibreglass flip front. With the amount of money TR5s are making nowadays I hope the builder did this a few years ago before the prices rocketted otherwise he has rather devalued an expensive car!
