This month has been packed with car shows and folk eager to find out the value of their american cars.
Plenty of folks like myself were looking forward to the traditional Good Friday Wheels Day meeting at Aldershot organised by the Surrey Street Rodders. We were met with the most horrible conditions for any car show; a show ground resembling a quagmire, very little traders, participant numbers at the lowest ever and a handful of souls showing their cars – a nightmare for the organisers and public alike.
By reading my Classic American Magazine report you will have gathered that I did find some comforting muscle cars dotted about. This is not a great sign of things to come so let’s hope the summer weather dramatically changes for the better.
My next american muscle car event is “Chryslers at Brooklands” over the May Bank holiday, always a favourite and hosted by the Mopar Muscle Association (I intend to exhibit my 68 Barracuda!). Will report the show in the next blog.
On the car valuations front it has been a busy time; giving advice, allaying folks fears of their american cars having to run illegally and appraising many fabulous models.
I appraised an outstanding 1966 Plymouth Fury III 2 door, bright red with complementary wheels and in stunning condition. This resides in Oxted and has a dedicated owner – if you see it at a show give it some time.
Till next time, keep driving them old cars.
