Default Brighton

Sunday June 2nd

Joined the Kit & Classic Car Run from Greenwich Park, London to Madeira Drive on the Brighton sea front.

About 500 cars take part in this annual outing. There were a couple of other Tributes entered.

As you can see we got into 'Period Costume' - a sort of 1960s style as I stitched some floral fabric into the outside trouser seams . . . plus a couple of bright shirts.

The route takes you down smaller roads, with a stop off point or two. The Gardens at Penshurst Place are very impressive, with a good coffee and bun.

At Brighton the Kit cars were lined up by the fencing, so there is little chance to interact with the public. After an hour or so we went off for lunch.

If I have another project it will be putting a bmw motorcycle engine in a 2CV, plus a few other bits . . .

Default Kits & Classics on the 'Crick' High Wycombe

Just spent today at a show called Classics & Kits 'on the Crick' at Naphill near High Wycombe. It might be called this because it is a couple of football pitches which are not dead smooth . . .

Entries of all sorts of cars & Motorcycles are accepted and cover about 75% of the area; plus a music / announcement stage and catering on the other 25%.

Warm and sunny for the most part with about 350 vehicles. Very well organised, friendly, easy going and not crowded. Visitors were notable for being careful and fellow entrants were chatty and pleased to talk about their cars.

We were there from 10.30am to 3.30pm, took a picnic and met up with some friends. A good day out, culminating with a visit to the stage for a Bronze award in the Custom & Kit Car category - hopefully there were more than 3 entrants.
