*Report* Retro Show at the pod
We had the choice of a full weekend at this but decided against it and to set the alarm for 5am. At 5am we did wonder why we did that. lol.

Set of about 6am to have a nice steady ride to get to the Pod at about 8.30am. On arrival it was obvious it wasnt the biggest of shows but we've been before and knew it was a good show.

Proceeded to the show and shine area to find an already half full paddock full of some very nice metal. Got directed to our spot and the next hour was cleaning and polishing. The sun was already at this time melting our skin off our bones. Once the cab was cleaned, we covered ourselves with factor 30 suncream and set off for a walk round. The retro show being non genre bring all types of cars with some of the wildest engine transplants you can imagine including an old mini vans with a Mazda RX7 engines, a split mint bike engines mk2 fiesta and various V8 monsters with huge blowers stuck out the bonnets. Its a good job the pob is a straight line.

I love my Fords but some of the cars yesterday were unbelievable and epic.

To the photos:

There was quite a few R5s that looked like they'd come some distance. Made me think of Ciney and how cool international shows are. [Image: retro05_zps7d31d8d6.jpg]

The best bit of the day when you're at the Pod, an hour watching some rediculously powered cars tearing up the strip. That is a 5.0 V8 powered min van lining up for a run along side another huge V8 powered MG B.
