    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.

    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!

    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.
