01-07-12 – Retro Show

Right, time for some catch-back:  For me Retro Show is one of the big 3 shows of the summer and with dry weather on the cards, it didn’t disappoint.   The Herald got its first (dry) public outing on the Retro Cars stand and was lording it up with celebrity motors like Jay Mac’s ZERO lip MK2; that’s how we roll!  Good to meet some of you on the day and good to finally get out in the car!

Here’s some B-roll to keep you going…check out Retro Cars mag for the full story.

Still playing catch-up…Santa Pod, Retro Show, you know the drill.

Retro Show – Santa Pod – 18-07-10 – Part #2

Turns out I dodged a bullet by not taking the KP…more on that later, but first some more pics of the weekend!

I love this KP.  It’s everything a retro should be; no frills, no £1000 wheels, no showy scene bits, no untouchable paint job; just everything you need to enjoy hooning around in an old car.  I remmember when cars were simple and fun like this….

It’s a shame it was just bunged in the public car park.

Retro Much?  No, but at least the owner parked it well out of the way…unlike the Mondeo enthusiasts group who had a stand.  Yeah, that happened.

Hux Mania – 185s on 10″s

Drag car clutch rebuild?  Yep.

Viper Bus.


Retro Show – Santa Pod – 18-07-10 – Part #1

Wow, it’s literally that time of year already:  Retro Show at the Pod; basically the penultimate show in my summer of automotive fun.  Despite the blackest most overcast sky I have ever seen the rain held off all weekend.  Unfortunately, I wussed on taking the KP (show cars hey.  I’ll be trailoring it next – loser.),racked up the Mazbo and rolled out.  More camping, more beer, more half-cooked meat later and…it was Sunday: Show day.  Pics?  OK:

Daily driver club – we do pink!

News just in: Rat-look is not cool.

Star-Sharks on a Capri?  Hell yeah! Mike, SELL THEM TO ME!

320iS – immaculate is an understatement.

Seth-o-matic – best wheels (well, trims) and car combo of the day for me.

Hux-rox (more of this car soon!)


Retro Show 05-07-08

As I peeled back my tent, in a less than fit state from the night before, I was greeted by rain, lots of rain. What can you do though? I was already in Northampton so we packed up camp and headed out.

Driving into the show I was pretty worried as it was quiet, too quiet. Obviously people more sensible than me had stayed in bed. It wasn’t until later the sun shone and the place filled up. Anyway, on to the pics:

Stu’s Sapporo has to be one of the coolest cars in the UK at the moment. Dropped on bags (cheating) and rolling Works I love it!
