Didn't realize that was your Evo Adam until I was chatting to your Dad when he was getting the car to move it for pics. Such a cool car.

As ever great pics and look forward to seeing anyone else's from the day.

Yeah Dad said he'd bumped into you, but I missed you! (There's no missing 890 though!)

Agree with the above - severe lack of cars in attendance which makes you wonder why it was £20 to get in... but will be excellent if they can get it right.
I drove over the GRRC members meeting in the afternoon, there were more 80s/90s interesting/supercars in the members car park than at Radwood!

I wonder if the Radwood concept works better in a market like Los Angeles where the usual car shows are either for modern exotica or classic muscle cars/hotrods, so having a show for 'lesser' cars is a novelty, whereas here there seems to be plenty of shows for such vehicles (can think of several off the top of my head, and I'm not even a follower of the 'scene': Retro Rides, Players, the Hagerty Unexceptional thing the other week, the regular Goodwood meetups etc.)

Very much enjoyed the day, it was a show that you got out of it as much as you put in. If you kept yourself to yourself, just walked round the motors you'd be done in an hour or so. Had all the hallmarks of an intimate show that ends up getting big, which I hope it does!

Chatting with the organizers, they were thinking of making it somewhere more central. Would have to get attendance numbers up but I don't think that would be an impossibility. Even if they held it at Caffeine and Machine, but I fear the vibe would get over-ridden by Caffeine and Machine's.

Everyone was friendly, everyone had brought their pride and joy and that was evident to see. I've listened to the organisers podcast for a while now and followed the event in America, so I guess I knew what I was expecting and got more of a kick out of talking to the fellas I'd listened to which some wouldn't get the same joy out of.

Driving in - it's a shame the Goodwood marshalls sent a TVR, an Alpina B10 and myself up a gravel, muddy route before us making the decision that this probably wasn't the right way! Got most of the mud off, but not off the tyres.. but hey, rally car?

That was me with the TVR and B10... so annoying, I even said to them ARE YOU SURE YOU WANT US TO GO THAT WAY! Yes, they were sure...

Perhaps it would work well at the British Motor Museum, Gaydon

Retro Rides video. If this show builds numbers and I suspect it will then it'll be well worth attending.

Great experience. I think as a proof of concept it worked well, as a first event that wasn't particularly well advertised it's understandable that numbers were low however I think with the American influence and a bit more notoriety it should hopefully grow in the future. We had a great day as there were about 8 of us, even had a full on DIY bbq for lunch which was nice smile

Was talking to the organisers throughout the day and they were very welcoming and happy to talk.

That B10 was filthy! I was wondering where it had been! That is annoying but it def stood out with mud sprayed up the sides of it boxedinyes

Yep - just did a casual bit of off-roading on the way... annoying as I am selling it and it looked like I keep it in a field!
