The Rally takes place on the third Sunday of May annually, between 10 am and 5 pm. The site is situated at Weedon Park, Weedon Hill, near Aylesbury. HP22 4NN. I have been to this show a number of times over the years and it really is a good day out. The rally last year attracted over 1000 entrants of classic cars / lorries / steam engines / military vehicles and motorcycles of all ages. There is also a big auto jumble where you can find even the most hard-to-find parts. As the showground is located just a few miles outside Aylesbury I decided to have a drive over.
|Although the show ground was only 2 miles|
from my home, I passed 2 broken down classic
cars. One of those unlucky cars was a pink and
white PA Cresta.
|Once parked up in the show ground I spotted|
this lovely 1966 split screen. I had a good chat
with the owner, a nice guy who told me all about
|The owner had done a lot of work, but he said|
he still had loads to do, sounds familiar eh?
|On the other side of the show ground I saw|
this yellow late bay, complete with 'eye-
lashes' over the headlights.
|Classic cars is the name of the game at this |
show and the Ford Mexico line up had some
quality Mexico's on show. This is just 3 of the
groups line up.
|This gorgeous 1960 Chevrolet Impala in|
turquoise was stunning.
|Such a lovely looking classic, I especially the|
turquoise tinted windows.
|This lovely 1964 Ford Econoline looked great|
in an aftermarket green colour with tinted
|These really are nice looking buses. I do like|
the pop top roof.
|A 1929 Ford roadster in the classic hot rod |
combination of gloss black bodywork with
red steel wheels.
|OK it doesn't have an original '29 dashboard|
but it still looked good.
|Rear wheels had chrome hubcaps with|
beauty rings. I do like those teardrop rear
lights and the rumble seat. That is one good
paint job, the reflection is amazing.
|This gorgeous 1959 GMC step side pick up|
had a 350ci V8 under the hood.
|This lovely red truck not only looked good, it|
sounded good too.
|This 1966 pastel blue Mercury Montery had a|
hot rod / race look and with a 390ci motor
under the hood, I bet it's performance lived
up to it's image.
|This is, or rather it stared out as a Citroen of|
some form, but after having extensive body
modifications it looks more like a 1950's
|Ever wondered what would happen if one|
of the 'Transformers' met 'Batman'? It is riding
on hydraulic suspension which allows it to sit
on the ground when parked up.
|Interior looks futuristic yet old style hot rod.|
|A lovely bright 'Roman' red 1962 Chevrolet |
Corvette roadster. It had the classic 327ci
V8 engine which produces about 360bhp and
it had the Rochester mechanical fuel injection
system which with a standard carb returns
|Talk about an overdose of red. Almost |
everything in the interior was red and on a
sunny day the glare was overpowering.
|This 1958 Oldsmobile Eighty Eight looked|
stunning in it's gloss black paint.
|A typical 1950's American car with fins and |
lots of chrome work and tail lights which are
a work of art.
|Sir David Brown made his money producing|
tractors before the second world war. In 1947
he purchased the Aston Martin car company
for £20,500 and the rest, as they say, is
history. This early 1950's racing car was one
of his early creations.
|An un-usual roof configuration on this bright|
|A pink late bay with pop top. It's always good|
to see other VW's at a show.
|This Yamaha XT500 Enduro was my dream|
motorcycle as a kid, and I have to say I'd
still like one today.
|This mid 1960's Triumph TR5 had race some|
serious race pedigree, the numbered doors
and big spotlights give some indication of it's
|The Chiltern Hills show also featured a military|
section and this combo made me smile with
the dummy on the back of the trailer.
| A very rare 1966 Vauxhall PA Cresta estate|
in light blue.
|Interior design looked like pure nostalgia of|
1950's Americana, With the column gear
change and front bench seat.
|Not quite as rare, is the saloon version.|
|Ford Corsair has had a make over with purple|
paint, chrome 5 spoke wheels with white wall
|The bodywork was basically standard but|
looked different due to the colour, I think.
|A mark 1 Jaguar 3.4ltr 'S' in British Racing|
green. These mk1's were produced from
1955 - 1959
|A lovely series 2 E-type Jaguar finished in|
a mustard colour.The series 2 was produced
from 1968 - 1971.
|Inside the classic E-type. This car had the|
automatic transmission hooked up to the
|You can tell this is a series 2 due to the open|
headlights. The series 1 had glass covers
over the headlights.
|A lovely MK1 Lotus Cortina. This car featured|
the 1600cc Lotus engine. Lotus also changed
the suspension and braking system.
|A gorgeous 1954 Chevrolet Bel-Air 4 door |
sedan in baby blue with a white roof.
|Such a lovely looking car, these were made,|
in different guises from 1950 - 1954.
|This Ford Transit camper van from the early|
1970's looked pretty much original apart from
maybe the red and white pop top canvas.
|This Transit may be over 40 years old but the|
interior has had a makeover and looked really
good with plenty of storage space.
|I couldn't do a blog write up without posting|
a picture of my bay. I'm not sure I was parked
in the correct place, but hey does it really
|A lovely looking Lotus Elan +2 from around|
1967 finished in orange. The +2 model had
a longer wheelbase and 2 rear seats.
|This tough looking 1966 Oldsmobile 442 in |
bright orange with a black stripe stood out
in the sunshine.
|I did like this 1966 Ford Galaxie in grey with|
wide steel wheels painted black and white wall
|This car certainly made it's presence felt with|
that lovely massive rear end.
