26th April 2015 - St. Roses Classic Car Show

St. Roses Classic Car Show is a nice little local show in Stroud that raises money for the school funds which teaches kids with all kinds of handicap and learning difficulties.  We have taken the TR7 there for the past several years. This year the weather has been perfect for the past couple of weeks but chose to rain on the night before.  The morning of the show was cool with a hint of drizzle in the air so I thought it would be more comfortable to go there with the roof up. Problem was that on a cold morning the vinyl roof didn't want to co-operate and it took 15 minutes to get it stretched enough to latch down.  Should have put it up the night before - lesson learned. 

The show was well supported as usual with about 250 cars of all types there. We were the only TR7 but there was a good selection of other TR's from 2 to 6.

That's us, the only TR7 at the show.
 The star of the show for me was a beautifully restored Aston Martin DB4. It looked absolutely perfect inside and out. I am sure it didn't look that good when it came out of the factory in 1960.

Perfect 1960 Aston Martin DB4

Beautiful engine bay on the DB4

Parked close to us was also this lovely GT6 that someone had spent a lot of time (and money?) on.

Very nice Triumph GT6 engine bay.
