Pangbourne Car Show 2018

On Saturday many classic rare and sporty types of gleaming road vehicles from all eras of motoring came together in a single show of polished paintwork of a rainbow of colours.

Lots of them were parked in rows according to their types. As well as some of the regulars I am sure that there were more cars than in previous years. As this show started as a school project to do up a 1970’s Ford Capri, it has now mushroomed into an annual event with 216 vehicles, mainly cars but with the odd truck, tractor and motorcycle in the mix.

As we were going around, we were enjoying the lovely sunshine, a very reasonably prices burger courtesy of the college staff. For pud Wayne had a whopping slice of home-made cake. I had a more modestly sized ice cream.
In previous years the show has been free but this year they introduced a charge of £5 per car for charity, the Nabugabo Community Learning Centre in Uganda, along with the profits from the food stall.

We also spotted a man selling badges from his car windscreen, from one of the local car clubs. All the badges depicted the same car but were different colours from different years.

A few hours very well spent and lots of pictures in the gallery here.
