Suns out, roofs down

Standard

As we roll on through the year the car shows are coming thick and fast.

The MMA Chrysler Day at Brooklands is always a firm favourite of mine, a sunny Bank Holiday at the end of May certainly brought out some mighty fine muscle cars. This year quality prevailed over quantity as the numbers were a tad down although an eclectic mix of muscle cars were on hand.

Spring highs, spring lows

Hi Folks,

Hope everyone survived the holidays as we are now truly into 2019!

The past months have seen me value some very top end Mopars a radical street/strip Duster and a well restored 1968 Plymouth GTX – hopefully these cars will show at the MoparEuroNats this year.

Barn finds are still plentiful in the States with another Superbird being pulled out of a junk infested garage, looks like it was custom painted at some time as the blue paint and lack of vinyl roof are not original. Well that’s the Yin-and-Yang front, however, a severely burnt 1973 Charger that I came across looks a total disaster – win some-loose some.

It’s July – see you at the Mopar Euronationals?

Hi folks,

Hope all is well.

Not much happened with me since the Chryslers at Brooklands show at the end of May -one of my favourite venues for a car show. I took the trusty Barracuda but she didn’t seem to run right, so have ordered a new carburettor. The show was very well attended with perfect weather and a whole host of gleaming muscle cars. For instance, a great looking 1970 Cuda convertible with an added Hemi engine came along, the car was used in the Johnny Depp movie Dark Shadow. Another odd-ball car was a 1973 Chrysler Valiant Charger with a 225ci six banger from South Africa, I also warmed to a very nice EV2 orange 1970 Challenger R/T.

Cars and car shows

Hurrah! The car show season is in full swing.

I attended two shows over the May Bank holiday, both very different occasions yet equally enjoyable;  first up was the return of the Mopar Muscle Association (MMA) and then there was the Haslemere Classic Car Show the day after.
