Brilliant videos! I've got my girlfriend telling me to quieten down here
that just flat looks like fun. I try to go up and watch the Maryhill Hill climb at Maryhill, Wa. every fall that runs on the first stretch of paved road in the state of Washington and I really enjoy watching.
Excellent stuff, Gav. Hope to be over there next year to check it out. If we can make it, I may PM you for some details.
What an awesome event! Absolutely fantastic! I can't stop thinking how this is what it's all about.... I wish we had something like this in Australia, no matter where. I'd be there!
Thanks for the pics and video. Much appreciated!
Some really spot on cars! Love the 3 window '36.
what are the dates for this run? where do you fly into to be close to there?
like to plan a trip over there sometime soon.
I have seen a lot of way cool events, but this is a super neat happening. The beautiful setting is just fab. Thanx so much for taking us to this event via great pix and way cool videos. Man it just is spectacular. Thanx again. ~sololobo~
This (Flatheads) is a once a year class at Shelsley Walsh, happens at the first meeting of the season (usualy early May), there are other meetings at the Hill climb
If you into Vintage race cars then the July meet is the one for you............
check it out
Nearest Airport is Birmingham
Let some of us know if you make it over............
That's about the coolest car event I've ever seen! Nice to see people are really using their cars!
Thanks for the vid!
This is a Batten Special, isn't it?
But not as much fun.....................
Those videos are FANTASTIC! Really nice to see Hot Rods being driven hard-and not just in straight line! What a cool event, looks like maybe it'll go on my "one of these days" list...Thanks for posting!
Great venue & Swell Pics...Spot On! #83 using olde VW wheels? #84's engine looks sweet with those NAVARRO cylinder heads. Here's another Navarro power plant & car!:
Just love those events where everyone is a winner if you know what i mean......
Feel free to get in touch, I will help where I can.
As keith said the hot rod/flathead class only runs at the May event at this venue but they also run at the Prescott hill climb later in the year around October time. Of course there are the Nostalgia Nationals and the Hot Rod Drags events aswell as the Hayride. I'm sure you would enjoy any of them.
It is indeed. Owned by 'biggles' on here. More info on this thread...
Nope. Olde Ford wide fives on '39 brakes and axles.
