Retro Rides Gathering 2013

Words & photos: Daniel Bevis

You know what it's like when you go to a show and think 'I can't believe I've never been to this before'? That was me at the 2013 Retro Rides Gathering.
If you're into retro cars - which, er, I am - then it's pretty much the perfect show. Held on the crisply manicured lawns of the historic Prescott hillclimb, the show offers a smörgåsbord of club stands, a whole section of retro parking - a show in itself, that - and constant tyre-squealin' action as a wide variety of machinery takes to the hill; from the humble Austin Allegro to the 1,005bhp Audi quattro, there were cars whizzing up the hill to suit all tastes. (Well, not so much whizzing in the case of the Allegro - more like wheezing. But entertaining nonetheless.)

There was so much to see and enjoy, it's impossible to cram it all into one post - so, as usual, SuckSqueezeBangBlow will be drip-feeding you highlights in the coming days and weeks, so you don't get overwhelmed by the awesomeness of it all - below is but a handful of treats for your delectation. And if you really can't wait, click here for the full set of photos.
