Imagine the perfect English scene, stone cottages surrounding a central green, a friendly pub at its heart on one side. Put this in the middle of quintessentially Cotswold countryside and you have the picture postcard village of Whichford. It is where Americans think we all live. At any moment you expect Hugh Grant to wonder past as he makes his way to one of the four weddings, or for James Bond to flash past in an Aston Martin. Well you are unlikely to see Hugh or 007, but on the 3rd Thursday of each 'summer' month you just might get the Aston...for on this day a stunning array of classic, sporting and interesting cars, bikes and even trucks and buses gather to celebrate all things powered and fun. The focus is on cars and they dominate green, some even bring picnics to enjoy beside their classic car. It is all terribly English, a bit posh and none the worse for that. Around the edge of the green however are the bikes, some modern super bikes but the majority are post war classics and some brilliant 60's/70's and 80's classic that many of us cut our biking teeth on and still remember fondly. Everything from a truly beautiful Egli Vincent to a CX500 cafe racer that looked it been converted in a bit of a hurry in the dark. Meanwhile the pub serves cool beer, decent burgers and hot dogs. It is a great meet and well worth checking out if you get a chance. Anyway here are a few pictures....
