As the old year slipped away and we found ourselves on the first day of the new one, it meant only one thing, time to head to Brooklands Museum for their New Years Day event. A huge and diverse range of machinery filled up the Museum grounds, and there was surely something there for everyone to enjoy, whatever your favourite variety happened to be.
Full of Gallic charm.
The historic banking soon started to fill up.
They came in all shapes and sizes.
A line of Lancias
And a row of Rovers
You have to admire the owners for bringing cars this immaculate out, on what was a pretty damp and dreary day.
Absolutely pristine Jaguar
There is always something at this event, that is truly unique and special, and this Citroen is a very rare thing indeed.
Of course some of the cars had a more 'weathered' look, and wore it with a charm all of their own.
Wouldn't have thought the speed bumps were much problem for this high rise special.
Back to basics.....
Sporting a very unique handbrake.
Remind you of anyone?????
You have to admire the level of craftsmanship that goes into a car to achieve a finish like this.
Here's looking at you.
Not forgetting the two wheeled fraternity.
Even some of the flying exhibits had been given a radical paintjob!
Vest with a message.
Even the Museum wildlife came out to have a look at the event.
As the rain got heavier, it was time to call it a day and head home. A fantastic way to start the year off, many thanks to all the staff and volunteers, and to the hundreds of owners who brought their pride and joys out for the day for us to admire.
