Had a mail from my pal Dani on Wednesday evening. Can you come to the Oldstyle show on Saturday - we will pay your expenses. So, checked flights, booked it on Thursday at about 5 pm and set off from home at 2am on Friday morning.

The show is held in a working quarry which makes a great backdrop. It's open to pretty much anything pre 65 so always attracts a nice mix of vehicles. (personally I like to see a mix at a show - adds interest).

So, here are a few pics


This belongs to my Pal Peter - it's a real sleeper with a max wedge motor.




An Auto Union, known as 'Der Deutsche Thunderbird' Interesting 3 cylinder motor with the rad sitting under the bonnet but behind the motor.


And here it is with a real T-Bird.




Dani's wagon which I resited buying last year for a very reasonable price - Stupid stupid stupid !!!

Car of the show for me. Beautiful chop, lovely finish, just a shame it wouldn't fit in the suitcase


Before you look at the next pic - anyone guess what it is?

Don't know if this was an original racer or a recreation but it certainly looked and sounded the part.

Love the Nash pickup, not only a change from the 'norm' but a class looking build.
