The 3rd and final instalment of the N.S.R.A. Fun Run at Billing Aquadrome, Northampton. I hope you have enjoyed looking at the pictures and reading my informative and sometimes witty comments and maybe it may have inspired you to attend the event next year?
|Fully fendered '32 3 window Coupe in |
matt black, looks tough eh?
|True hot Rod paint scheme on this '32 |
Ford 5 window.
|Not sure what this was but it was different, and |
that is the name of the game.
|A '34 Ford brought right up-to-date. A |
modern version of a classic.
|Probably the best line up in the show |
|This Pro-Steet Ford Popular was amazing. |
Lovely paint, lovely engine, lovely interior.
|Although it was built for speed, interior looks |
quite comfy. This also featured a roof chop.
|A pair of Rat Rods in the car park.|
|'Ed' from the Wolfsburg Weed Huggers VW |
club was at the show with his fastback.
(although I never saw him there) Ed
actually followed Claude and I home
to form a mini cruise. Thanks Ed. !
|A home made Ford Classic Capri pick up, |
what a blast from the past.
|I do like a tatty step side pick up. This one |
was spot on.
|The mini club were at the show with their |
rendition of 'custom'.
|Err, Umm..... a 4x4 mini anyone?|
|A pastel yellow and white mid 50's Corvette |
Stingray, absolutely stunning.
|This looked like a Bentley, whatever it |
was it was very expensive. Just imagine
making the first cut with the grinder
on those doors.
|This was very trick and had some nice touches.|
|A '32 Ford 3 window with a nice twist on |
the flamed paint job.
|A low lead sled in satin black, how |
cool is this.
|1940's Ford pick up in beautiful turquoise with|
polished alloy and chrome.
|Looks like a bright orange Ford Prefect... with a |
dark green Ford Popular
in the foreground.
|The contrasting colours on this early step side |
truck were absolutely perfect. It complimented
the hub caps and chromed bright work perfectly.
|I spotted this Silver Pro Street Ford Pop |
taking shelter from the sun under some
trees by the show entrance.
|Rods kept turning up all day. A 40's Ford and a |
red '57 Chevy driving into the show.
|Such a good variety of vehicles and such a high |
standard of built quality. Such a pleasure to
actually see these rods driving about rather
than just parked up.
|This bike really caught my eye. Pastel blue colour |
really set it apart from the other bikes.
|The build quality of these bikes is just as high a|
s the show cars.
|Now these are super cool. How good would it |
be to ride one of these around??
|My favourite, I didn't ask the price of this... but |
I can safely say I couldn't afford it.
|So-Cal sticker on a '32 roadster.|
|Model 'A' roadster had some nice period touches.|
|Loved the door cards, looked like rolls of film |
featuring Marilyn Monro stuck to the inside
of the doors.
|Not 100% sure what this was but it was huge. |
Look at those rear tail fins.
(look how small the modern day hatchback
is next to it)
|Classic mid 50's Ford Thunderbird in flawless |
gloss black paint and white wall tyres.
|Lovely turquoise and black split screen |
|Chevy step side looking gorgeous.|
|Walking around the park I spotted this Ford |
Popular. This black gloss paint was so deep
you could drown in it.! Unusual wheel choice
but I think it works.
|Here's one for Ian Munro, who is my mates |
brother and now lives in Thailand. This was the
only Consul Capri I saw at the show and only
saw it drive in, I couldn't find it after that.
|I do prefer the ratty look on a pick up but this |
caught my eye for some reason.
|This Ford Pop pick up was just leaving the show |
when I spotted it. Not sure if this is converted
saloon or whether it's an Australian import
were I believe they were made as standard
and called a 'Ute'
|Hey, I recognise this split screen, it belongs to |
Claude Busian. I'm glad you decided to drive
over Claude. It was really good to see you
and it looked like you enjoyed the show.
|This is without doubt the best way to get |
around the park.Overall it was a very good day
out, the weather was good and the show was
excellent. Same time and place next year then.
