|This gorgeous car has a top speed of around|
175 MPH and a 0 - 60 time of 5.5 seconds.
This 365 is probably worth in excess of £800,000.
|This stunning sky blue 1964 Porsche 356C|
coupe was immaculate and looked to be 100%
original. This RHD coupe had the black leatherette
interior and Michelin tyres just as it left the factory.
|This gorgeous 1960 Plymouth Belvedere looked|
fantastic in the sunshine with its pastel green and
white body colours. This car was massive and
those wild tail fins make this car look even bigger.
|You can see what I mean about those tail fins..!|
The fourth generation of Belvedere's (which this
model is) were produced from1960 - 1961. There
were 4 different body styles and numerous engine
sizes, but all were V8's.
|This MK3 metallic brown MK3 Ford Cortina is|
a car close to my heart as I had one of these
many years ago. My 'Tina' was nowhere near as
clean as this 2000L GXL, this car had obviously
been restored as it was immaculate.
|The interior looked to be 100% original. The|
dashboard with those sloping clocks brought back
many good memories. I would love another of
these MK3's but the price they go for is crazy.
|The MK3 has such a lovely body shape and is|
pure 1970's styling. The MK3 was produced
from 1970 - 1976... right I'm off to look on E-Bay
for a cheap MK3 !
|Another member of the Aylesbury Vale Rods and|
Customs crew was Dave, who owns this lovely
fender less chopped and channelled 1932, 3
window coupe finished in bright red.
|Dave's '32 has the traditional hot rod stance,|
nose in the weeds and higher rear with big and
little wheels / tyres. Dave's Coupe has a 283
cubic inch motor mated to a TH 350 gearbox.
|The classic look of a '32 Ford. These '32's really|
are gorgeous looking cars. The custom rear lights
with blue dots are true hot rod as is that ultra cool
|To be a true hot you have to loose the bonnet, as|
Dave has done. The chromed front 'I' beam and
the chrome shocks look just right.
|This awesome looking Model 'A' sedan belongs|
to a mate of mine, Mike, who I hadn't seen since
I left the hot rod scene many years ago. This
gorgeous rod has been chopped and lowered
and painted in that wild green colour with the
traditional flamed sides.
|Mikes model 'A' is immaculate and no expense|
has been spared to get it looking this nice. Those
chrome custom wheels looked great against that
|The lovely custom interior was as you expect|
just as detailed as the rest of the car. I did like
the 3 spoke steering wheel and the pinstriping
on the dash. The door cards and seats were
traditional hot rod, black vinyl tuck and roll.
|Power for this rod comes via a detailed 3500cc |
Rover V8 engine that produces 200 BHP which
is mated to a Borg Warner automatic gearbox,
and Mike assures me he has the fastest car in
the valley !
|This deep purple '55 was so straight as you can|
clearly see an almost perfect reflection of Mike's
model 'A' down the side.
|A close up of the deep purple paint that looks|
almost black, until the sun shines.
|I'm not sure the interior is original but it does|
look so nice.
|Aylesbury Vale Rods and Customs at the Brill|
Classic Car Show 2017. It would be nice to see
more hot rods attend these classic car shows.
|I dd mean to take a picture of this 1947 Alvis|
TA14 that was parked next to my bus, but it
seemed the camera liked my bus more!
|My 1969 VW Microbus for no other reason than|
I needed to fill the blog up as this is a shorter than
normal blog entry.
|Just a fun sign that I normally put in the windscreen|
of my bus at shows. Its meant to be humorous but
with a serious meaning !
|The Brill Classic Car show in all its glory. You can|
just make out our buses in the centre of the photo.
|This 1956 BSA C10L looked to be original.|
These bikes were designed for commuting to
work for those who couldn't afford a car back in
the day. They had a 250cc side valve engine,
4 speed gearbox and 6 volt electrics.
|A gorgeous sunny day and a field crammed full|
of rare and exotic classic cars / bikes. As I took
this photo I wondered how much all the vehicles
at the show were worth, it must have been a
huge eye watering figure
|This lovely brown and beige 1940's Chevrolet|
coupe was gorgeous. I'm not sure what model
this one is but it didn't really matter as it was just
|As I not sure of the model of this coupe, there|
isn't much I can say about it, except that I just
love the shape of these 1940's coupe's.
