Thanks to a tip off from the Mister's Mechanic, we spent today basking in the sunshine at Wheels Day in Aldershot. A bit of a drive, but that's never a problem with Tilly!
We brought along two very good friends of ours, Alex and Gen, taking their car show virginity! The Beagles joined in th fun too, so Tilly really was going to have to prove she'd be up for next years euro road trip.
I'm going to have to keep the posts for the next 2 weeks rather brief unfortunately, as I've fallen victim to dreaded RSI. My right hand is curently bandaged all the way to my elbow, I've been given painkillers that don't seem to be working, and I've been banned from sewing and typing (alright, a little is allowed!) and realising that trying to rest my arm for 2 weeks is seemingly imposible after just day 2!! However, I will not let it stop me and I thoroughly enjoyed the show today!
On to the show. 1000 cas were expected, along with a load of stalls and even an autojumble! Enough to make everyone happy! There were performers and bands all day, so I would recommend it to anyone who fancies a great day out next year! I'll let you know a bit further in advance about the next ones, would anyone like to go to one too? Anyone know of any classic car shows in your area? Always wanting to know of more : )
It gets a bit picture heavy here, but as my hand is aching already, I think I'll let the pictures do the talking:
|Alex found a rather large spanner!|
Started off the day exploring the stalls, then made our way around the cars, bikes, and anything in between! It was a little overwhelming and I didnt know where to look at first.
|can you spot where the car inside the car is?|
Also came across some stock cars...I think it's time to get back down to Arlington for a spot of Banger Racing...yes please!
Came across an interior furninshing place too, but just look at this chair!! Gen and I couldn't resist striking some poses on them, want one please!
This was the first time we have actually been able to park INSIDE the show, as we finally classify to enter and show our first classic, the lovely Tilly Triumph.
Did anyone else go along and get any good pictures?
PS - the weather has been AMAZING the last few days! Bring on the rest of the Weekend!
