HOT ROD AND CUS­TOM DRIVE-IN DAY

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Event Report -

BEAULIEU, HAMP­SHIRE, 22 JUNE

Graeme Rust was glad he drove his 1947 Alvis Woodie TA 14 all the way from Corn­wall for this one-day event – which gath­ers the na­tion’s best hot rods at the Na­tional Mo­tor Mu­seum – be­cause it was voted by Beaulieu’s 6000 show­go­ers as their favourite.

‘It’s the re­sult of a lot of blood, sweat and tears,’ he says. ‘It’s one of one 45 built and is fit­ted with a su­per­charged 3.5-litre Buick V8. The peo­ple at Beaulieu just loved it.’

Greg Wal­ters won the Hard-Up Tro­phy for his 1930 Ford rat rod and Ben Luke’s 1954 Chevro­let 3600 pick-up was named Best in Show. Steve Have­lock
