Picture 2088

As I alluded to in the first Retro Rides Gathering post, a huge part of the whole event is the camping and socialising, which gets going on Friday afternoon. The field provided this year struggled to accommodate the number of people, but thankfully the rain held off so we didn’t have to endure camping in a swamp. Aside from the normal drunken shenanigans that you would expect at any event like this (and there are plenty), there is also a Charity ‘Tat’ Auction held. Motoring junk, accessories, books and assorted parts from gasket sets to wheels, all went under the hammer with the proceeds going to charity.

Strolling round the site, beer in hand, is the perfect way to soak up the atmosphere and meet new friends, as well as get a good look at some of the cars. The Sunday show actually comes second to the camping for most of the regulars and it’s not hard to see why. It’s informal, it’s friendly and best of all it’s lots of fun. Click through for the pics…
