A warm welcome to 2019, I am sure it will be a fun packed year for all us muscle car gear heads – let’s hope so anyway!
I would like to start with some sour news regarding a couple incidents from both sides of the pond in December 2018. First up, a 1969 Road Runner became totally wiped out in Essex a few days before Christmas. It seems that a 74-year-old lady became pre-occupied whilst driving her Focus and hit the Beeper full-on. Both drivers were taken to hospital and later released with non-life-threatening injuries.
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.
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.

Summer is here (at last!) and boy have I been busy with car valuations and shows.
The 23rd Mopar EuroNats, held at Santa Pod Raceway, proved to be a very busy event with many interesting american cars on show. Two fabulous Winged cars turned up; a white Hemi Daytona on the Saturday and a V code 440+6 Superbird. The latter won three trophies, including Best in Show.

Not long to go until the event of the Season; Mopar EuroNats, Santa Pod Raceway, England.
I know everyone is revved up for this show as it usually has great weather and always throws up a surprise or two! I will be present all three days and will be happy to complete car valuations over the weekend so come look me up at the merchandising stand and say ‘Hi’!!
