    I've been following that Jappic build and his attention to detail is amazing.

    I am utterly in love with the 1947 FHB. In fact, it's giving me terrible ideas about my Royal Enfield Bullet 500.. 1947 Frank Bacon cyclecar.jpg 1947 Frank Bacon cyclecar at Prescott.jpg Frank Bacon 500 cc special side view.jpg f-h-b.jpg .

    Will a one piece 1914 SAXON hood fit in the back of my wife's car? She'll never know unless one of you tell her.:confused:

    I would like to go .It always looks like a great event for all sorts of vintage vehicles. Most of all,everyone appears to enjoy every moment of it.

    Pity, I don't think I could coordinate things fast enough to make it there from the States. I been trying to decide on a European event to take in and have been considering Montlhery as well as Grand Prix Rétro du Puy Notre-Dame.
    As I plan to combine a genealogical based visit to Ireland and can only afford one Euro trip the choice becomes critical. UK events like Chateau Impney are enticing, too... and all I know of any of these is YouTube.

    Opinions invited.

    Although the hill climbs at Shelsey Walsh and Prescott go on through the summer they look like great events too....

    Without doing any digging, I'd guess AV Monocar on the racers, a cut-down Brit tourer for the hauler.
