    It's on tomorrow Tuesday 11 June. It's normally a great show in Coxhoe's Front Street and about 300 vehicles turned up last year. It's starts at 4:30 and goes on until about 8:00ish. Free entry so it's well worth popping in if you're in the area.
    Not the best weather forecast for tomorrow but hopefully there may be some dry weather come late afternoon.

    Locals mainly use horses or horse drawn coaches for transport so this will amaze them no doubt.

    Good luck

    They have automatic weapons in Beirut.

    The robbers in Coxhoe have to set their trebuchets up to intimidate victims.

    For shorter range attacks they use a longbow.

    Just got back decent turn out with the potential for a down pour. Some nice motors there. Highlight for me was the black oval window beetle.

    cracking turn out considering it was bastard freezing. some great cars and bikes. everything from escorts to rolls royces to ferraris to brough superiors to some american classics about half a mile long.
    my favourite was the little white 1957 austin a35 2 door :)

    tbh i think it's one of the best shows around here. some can be a bit snobby if they're not pristine or of a certain marque. i remember years ago when two old blokes were arguing like buggery over two similar bikes absolutely pristine but one had a copper head gasket instead of a composite one.
    what makes coxhoe good is the variety and every machine there is someone's pride and joy.
