Last weekend we headed over to Stoneleigh Park for the return of Race Retro after a few years' absence. In today's vid we wander the exhibition halls, spectate at the rally car demonstrations outside, and admire the many interesting cars up for grabs in the auction hall.

Also last weekend we popped along to a breakfast meet held at a farm shop near Middlewich. There was a mixed and interesting turnout, although we only got there after a last-minute vehicle substitution.

Hi, a previous upload gathered together a plethora of yellow-coloured older cars, and today's highlights the many interesting shades of brown and beige that were once a common sight.

Morning, a drive out to a car meet in the 4CV, rooting for Dodge parts in boxes of old clutter, a drive in the pickup to admire a former garage forecourt, a green turtle, and the history of a set of shelves, make it into the latest upload.

Evening all, many things made it into today's video - general garage tinkerings, off to a breakfast meet in little Dodge and the MX5, and inspecting a fascinating old tin shed with a link to early British motor manufacture (and a pioneer female aviator). After lunch we headed off to Sleap airfield to watch some wonderful old aircraft, then lastly a quick shufty at an old garage.

That corrugated iron Shed near Combermere doesn't appear on OS maps until the mid 50s.
This is the mid 20's map and it should be just below the 269 spot height in the corner of the open field East of the road.

Morning all, today's upload is a short compilation of photos featuring interesting old cars photographed in London circa 1982. A few extra images were captured in Luxembourg too, look out for a very derelict 1950s Minx.

Today's upload covers last weekend's trip to Weston Park for the huge old-car gathering that took place. Includes lengthy chat with, and demos by, the owner of an immaculate A90 Atlantic.
