Lea Gate July Hot Rod meet

First Friday of the month is American car night at the Lea Gate pub just outside Preston. As the weather has been so good I was expecting a good turnout, and I wasn't disappointed. These are my favourites out of the bunch, with the all aluminium bodied Brooklands style racer being my absoulte favourite. I spoke to the guy who made it, its basically a Westfield with mods the the chassis to make it taller around the sides and then he "just" added the ali bodywork. All designed in his head and added to as he saw fit, every panel was made first go and before he started he'd never used an english wheel or tig welded ali in anger. It was his post retirement project, and took him 8 months working 8 hrs a day 5 days a week. It was proper awesome.
