    Cue the Delta Cats... '55 Rocket 88 is exactly as it left its new Jersey factory, with correct black paint, 324 V8 and Hydromatic four-speed. Wheel skirts and spinner hubs were optional extras.


    Cool '77 Bay Window for the V-Dubbers


    '56 Poncho Star Chief was nigh-on immaculate


    It's nice to see a late pick-up when most of the scene seems to be dominated by '50s ones, so here's a '78 Chevy Silverado 30


    As if any old '64 Impala wasn't already beyond superlatives, this bright red, lowered job makes my task as the reporter very difficult indeed! The words just don't exist for it. Personally, though, I'd advise against Torq Thrusts and for a nice set of Appliance wires.


    '56 Chevy was another great-looking truck, with a claim to fame of being used for celebrity photoshoots with people like Ollie Murs, the Champion of Selfridges. Seems strange to use a vehicle like this for such a purpose given that any contemporary celebrity will invariably be overshadowed by it.

    More later.

    Might as well be part of the furniture.

It involves the cars competing for times around a course comprising various different tests (like what, in the American parlance, would be called an autocross) and it's an infinitely more entertaining spectacle than modern Formula One.

    Really like what I've seen of Chateau Impney in the magazines and your post on here, so I hope you make it along to that one again. Don't forget your camera!
    Thanks Nigel, will have a look into that one
    Not much going on that time of year either

    Several more trucks for different marque preferences:

    Wonderful '67 Ford Country Sedan still earns its keep lugging things around, I presume, since it had assorted autojumble bits 'n' pieces laid out in front of it


    Never seen this '34 before or since and I know nowt about it, but is it cool, or is it cool! With a single colour paint job it could look even meaner than it already does.

    The next two photos are not to be viewed under any circumstances without playing this:







    Back on the subject of '67 Fords, and this Galaxie 500 was another wonderful example of a sun-bleached dry state survivor


    Well, you've had a great selection of Ford and GM to choose from, but no Mopars as of yet, so here's a '68 Polara to rectify that


    And we'll end this post with a very nice custom bike - a '69 Harley Knucklehead chopper

    That's most of the many aspects of Wrotham covered, but it was a steam rally, and I've not yet shown any steam vehicles, so I'd better rectify that. Make the most of them because I haven't seen any other steam tractors this year.

    That's that, then, and I my next posts on here will be a bit less divergent than the last few have been.
