Classic Stony, 2 June 2019

Recommended Posts

So to the second of the weekend's shows. Stony Stratford is only 5 miles from Yardley Gobion so a lot of the same cars turned up but there was still plenty else to see, if not quite as manically busy as the New Year's Day event in the same place. Zel has already covered this event in his thread so I'll try to avoid duplicating his photos.

One of the few Citroens that weren't in Coventry

Just had the event report email from the organisers and apparently their new year's day meeting is now back on.

It had reportedly been cancelled due to some of the marshals resigning/retiring but they have now reshuffled things and wil continue to hold it.

      It's not exactly Autoshite, but an event celebrating cars and popular culture from the 80s and 90s should come close enough! Radwood has been a thing in the states for a year or two now, I've been following it since pretty much the beginning and am quite excited that the first event outside the US is happening here. The premise is pretty simple, bring along your car built from 1980-1999, optionally you can show up in your period correct rad outfit (whatever that might mean to you). Ticket prices are quite affordable, 20 quid if you want to show up in your car (incl. a passenger) or 10 quid without the car.
      I'm currently trying to find out if anyone would like to join. I have the feeling that space for cars might be quite limited, with the show happening in about 4 weeks I'd rather book the tickets earlier than later.  You can find more info in the link below, if you are interest it would be good to see people post here.

      To give you a little idea what previous events looked like:

      So for the first time in over 18 months because of reasons I made it to one of the Wednesday evening gatherings at Earls Barton. Lots of cars there but I do think they need to either rename this event and remove 'classic' or be more selective about what they let in as it was only about 50% classics and the rest were moderns. Loads of Binis, modern Beemers and Audis, Japanese performance motors, slammed VWs and the latest supercars, so I walked straight past a lot of dross to find the occasional gem. In front of the Maxi was a brand new 19-reg Mazda 3 - what the heck was that doing at a show?
      Anyway, pics of some of the good stuff...

      New venue just announced for FOTU 2019 - Saturday 20 July, 10am to 4pm at Claydon House, MK18 2EX (same general area as Stowe). Would make a nice 6-mile jaunt through the north Bucks countryside from the Field of Dreams. Concours applications open in January and general spectator/classic tickets will be available in March. Entry criteria has been widended too and it now says it's open to "unexceptional classics from 1966 to 1996".
