Classic car Show July 7th

Today saw the annual Classic Car Show in the precinct at Waterlooville.

Unfortunately, due to the bad weather, the numbers of cars and motorbikes on display were somewhat down on previous years, with 26 Classic cars, 15 American cars plus 8 motorbike and a sole Harley-Davidson.

We spent some time talking to the owners of many of the vehicles, before retreating for a coffee and toasted teacake while trying to decide on the winners of the four categories.

It was difficult to come to a final decision but, in the end, the best Classic car was judged to be a 1928 Austin 16/6 with a Holden body. This car was exported to Australia as a bare chassis, and was then fitted with a body built locally by Holden.

Of the American cars, first place went to a Ford Mustang with gull-wing doors and special paintwork, while the winning motorbike was a 1959 Triton.

The best Harley-Davidson was, of course, the only one there!

Many thanks to all of those participants who braved the weather to come along and show off their pride and joy.
