Hi all,

Yesterday we headed off in olde faithful to this mid-week foody/cheese/agricultural/country show. In recent years the local old-car contingent has been invited to display at this large event, so with half an eye on the weather, we went along.

It was fairly overcast early on, but it remained dry throughout the day and by mid-afternoon was positively sunny and warm. Leaving the venue saw us get tangled up in an almighty traffic jam, but the Dodge didn't get flustered and we made it back home aok.

Wonderful turnout of many interesting cars. The T looks magnificent and I would love to own the Model A Phaeton, even with its odd rear wheels.
A terrific photo of the 2 cylinder Rover's engine too.
Thanks for the pics, Rick.

Nice to see a good selection of pre-war stuff there. The emphasis has definitely shifted more towards the 60's, 70's and 80's in shows in the last few years, and the same seems to go with the project cars featured in the popular Classic Car press.

I'll do my best to buck that trend wherever and whenever possible Smile
