I always enjoy attending club national meets, previously this has included the Scirocco Register and TVR Club, and you get to see not only concours cars that attend shows but the cars that keep the marque going with daily and ongoing projects/restorations parking up. You also get to see the club, not the forum but the friendships that are made through the love of the same badge and the catch up that happens once a year as well as putting names and faces to avatars and user names. With that are people walking round and seeing what been done to others cars and talking about mechanical triumphs and failures.
One thing that did stand out, unlike some sanctions of classic/retro car clubs, was the acceptance of modified cars and not just the “it has to be one way” or “best kept as it left the factory”. There were cars with modern Vauxhall power plant, Cosworth engines and well as modified V8’s!!!!!
There must have been 60 cars that had made the pilgrimage over to Eddrig House and the setting within one of the walled courtyards really added to the whole event, something you would just not have gotten if it was in a field. From what I could tell every marque was represented, GT, Genie and Invader, although oddly for a car manufacturer, other than the GT that was badged on the front, none had the marques had names on the rear!!!!!
