May drive time

At last the show season is upon us and winter is a distant memory; great to be out and about again enjoying driving those muscle cars.

1969 Charger, Wheels Day
1969 Charger at Wheels Day

The season opener, as always, was Wheels Day at Rushmoor Arena , Aldershot, organized by the Surrey Street Rodders. Although the show field appeared a little soft at times, over a 1,000 cars attended and the sun shone.
The start of the Classic American car of the year heats saw Gavin Shaw and his gorgeous 1970 440 +6 Cuda with a worthy win.

Next up for me was a trip to Alton, Hampshire and a classic car meet on the first Sunday of the month at The Departure Lounge Café which was complete with an old passenger aircraft in the yard. Lovely warm weather and a very warm vibe made this gathering extremely memorable with a huge diversity of cars in attendance.

1960 Chevy Impala, Victory Wheelers

A few weeks later and I took the trusty Barracuda down to the Victory Wheelers show at Hayling Island and enjoyed a fab day out with the family in magnificent sunshine. A great turn-out of cars and some very cool muscle machines, the beach was heaving and a good time was had by all.

On the american car valuation front I have had the pleasure of being involved with a couple of high end cars, both Chrysler B bodies. A 1967 440ci Coronet R/T in excellent condition (an ex film car as well!) and a Los Angeles built 1969 383ci Road Runner which has a white vinyl roof on a green body – simply stunning.

Looking to the future I will hope to make the Father’s Day classic show at the Deers Hut, Liphook in June.
If you want a full car valuation or appraisal for your set of wheels then drop me a line on the TOVA-UK enquiry form.

Till then, keep driving them old cars!
