Stafford Classic Car Show

We had a great time today photographing the annual classic car show at Stafford Castle. This is our second year covering the show and thanks to all the staff for making us feel so welcome again. It’s a dream event for us to be honest as we both love a classic car. We have an MG Midget that we enjoy taking for a spin on a summer’s evening (invariably ending up at the pub for some reason!) and then sit and watch the admiring glances it receives in the car park. There’s nothing like a classic car or bike for drawing attention and there were plenty of admiring glances today with so many beautiful vehicles on display. It was lovely to chat to lots of car and bike enthusiasts many of whom had a great story or anecdote to share about their pride and joy! We had some great banter with the scooter boys again and really enjoyed chatting to the Jaguar Club Members who we hope to meet again at future shows.

We had to laugh at the “British Summer” today – three hefty rain showers didn’t discourage anyone (although we did spot someone huddled in a blanket). Of course the result of the rain was a very wet gazebo – it didn’t help being under a tree! Our new one doesn’t move in the wind (thankfully) but it does happily store a fair bit of water when packing it down wet which finds its way down sleeves, on feet etc 🙂

As usual Steve took some fantastic photos which you can view by clicking on our galleries page. Look forward to returning next year!
