Retro Rides Gathering Photo Dump

Today the Shelsley Walsh Hillclimb course (in Worcestershire, England) was taken over by a veritable plethora of non-current vehicles. The gathering has been an event for a few years, but this year was the first I’d heard of it, so I jumped in a car with some friends from work and headed over there. It was certainly worth the trip.

Cars gather for demo runs up the hillclimb course.
