Race Retro – 25-27-02-11

I can almost smell March and that means show season is in the offing.  First up was Race Retro; usual format and suspects present as previous years, but it’s always a laugh and a chance to play racing cars.   Massive thanks to the Retro Cars & Retro Ford peoples for the magic (as always).  Here’s some quick un-edited B-roll footage from the weekend, you can check the rest out in the mag.

Home for the weekend: RC & RF stand (Thanks to everyone who came down for a chat!).

This is how we get down…


NEC Classic Car Show – 11-11-10 – Set Up Day

Last night I headed over to the NEC to drop off the KP and help with the set up of the Retro Cars/ Retro Ford stand.

If you get chance, this is the best time to see the show; no crowds and no stress!  Plus you can get clear pics.   Unfortunately, it was late and a chinese was calling, so I didn’t hang about to get too many shots this time.

Sneak Peak…

All done and ready for 3 days of carnage!  More pics to come over the weekend!


NEC Classic Car Show & MPH 15-11-09

This weekend I headed over to the NEC in Birmingham for the big annual Classic Car Show.  Not only was the NEC a mere 1/2 hour drive from my place, but there was also the promise of a hang out with the boys and girls from Retro Ford.  We have a little history, so it’s always good to catch up!

The show was pretty cool, though I didn’t spend long walking round and taking pics;  mainly because I was hanging around on the stand  talking crap or catching up with people!

I have seriously been lusting after ‘Rods recently…anyone got a ’29 Model A knocking about?

This K12 was a demo car for a Lotus, really. It was running a 300 bhp step-cam motor out of a Sunbeam !  Now may be a good time to out myself as someone who thinks these K12s have real potential.

Alpina 5 was one of my “cars of the show” needed decking until the crossmember fell off though.

I was also in love with this:

The MPH show was on at the same time and once in, you could walk through into the hall where it was all happening.  It was cool to check out a few moderns.

Big thanks to the crew for keeping me fed, drunk and giving me somewhere to sleep!
