It was an assembly of Hot Rods, Classics, Kustoms and Muscle Cars — porn for petrolheads (or gearheads if you’re American) and definitely not a place for Low-Carbon types!

Nearly all cars were American with a scattering of Australian and a Brit lurking here and there — but no Germans or Japs.

A stage with bands (playing songs such as ‘Life is a Highway’), fashion shows and vendors filled out the spare space.

Here’s a few of the many pics we took — a second batch tomorrow.

a 1958 Edsel Citation — with the famous horse collar grille (it has been likened to other things)

1973 Ford escort

A diminutive Brit — a 1973 Ford Escort.  The standard car was quite underpowered, but this looks to have been given some extra grunt.
