It's organised by the Albion foundation so I imagine there will be plenty of neat old lorries to ogle at.

Haven't been to this rally for a few years - family stuff gets in the way!
Usually a good event, we went in the Traveller when I had that.

Sunday is the public day, Saturday ( is/ was) competitors only.
We might go on Sunday, if things pan out.

I'll be there. It's a good show but the ropes and narrow walkways they leave between cars are a PITA (it's pretty expensive to get into as well if I remember correctly).

I'm hoping by the time Sunday is here the forecast will have changed given that when I checked the forecast last night is was supposed to be raining today yet now today is here there is no rain to be seen...

Car show confirmed moist but a decent turn out. Managed to bring the Doloshite even though it took 10 mins get it started this morning...

Grand day out. Spotted your Dolomite but nobody around. Bought a new seat cover and new exhaust for my motorbike for the grand total of £15. Almost made up for the £10 to get in.

Yes spotted it to. Just a girl sitting in the passenger seat. Did'nt wish to appear creepy and say "i know your boyfriend off the internet"  :shock: Popped back later by car empty 

Lot less cars than some years but still good. Got a good look at the buses and lorrys too. Great plate on a bus for someone on here too.

You must have missed me by seconds, oldcars. That was when I nipped over to the registration tent to sign in and left Girlfriend_70s to finish her lunch!

I didn't make the show as I spent the day in a sodden wet field in Perthshire.

I didn't make the show as I spent the day in a sodden wet field in Perthshire.

Hrmph.

Fucks sake. Wrong sodden wet field...

 

I slept in on the morning of the show and woke up 45mins late, then the car wouldn't start because the weather was wet and it took 10 mins to actually get it going. Then I put some air in the tyres as they were all in the 18-23psi range rather than the 30ish they should have been, which explained why the handling had been boat like. By this point I was very late so bombed down the motorway at 70-75mph in the pouring rain, the resulting water trail disguised the burning oil although about 3/4 of the way there both me an Girlfriend_70's started feel vaguely unwell from the smell...

 

The weather actually wasn't too bad, it spent a surprising amount of time not raining. I also managed to resist buying any junk from the stalls.

 

Anyway, here is a random selection of pictures from the show, starting with old shite:

Overall a good show, I think my girlfriend is now simply relieved that I don't collect lorries or busses although she is fine with stationary engines... We buggered off home at about half 2ish and took the scenic route back on the A roads. When we eventually rejoined the M8 it was no longer raining and the Doloshite left an impressive blue vapour trail on the overrun.
