    car shows are two things, cars & there owners.Events like the walled garden offer a chance for a picnic and time to chat to other like minded owners with arrange of cars in rough to pristine condition its a matter of individual taste and choice of event.

  • Princes Risborough, Bucks says:

    Go to The Kop Hill Climb if you want to see 100’s of classic cars (and bikes) in action. Your average car show is indeed boring in comparison!

  • France says:

    Oh yes, shows are boring. Why move to see an XKE Or the 64 th 308 ? Classic cars of interest are one or two hundreds. We saw each of them many times. Naturally, if a 57 C or a GTO is exhibited, it worth the trip. Elsewhere… Let’s stay home and read a book… about classic cars.
