Vintage Rally

For many years, the big house in Wentworth has been a sleeping giant, but now, the owner is trying to bring the place back to life.  This weekend they held their second Vintage Car Rally - we went along to take a look.  I bet this old place has seen plenty of fancy cars parked in front of it in the past!

 I'll show you some of my faves - mainly based on colour it has to be said!
 I always drool over the campervans.  I dream of owning one, but hubby always points out their bad points - he's such a killjoy.
 I have to admit that at 6 foot 6inches, he might not fit in one!
 And he certainly wouldn't fit in this - but we did both really love it.

 And I was majorly in love with this fab American car with side tray of food!
 He could have done with a sandwich me thinks!
 We loved these dinky cars too
 And I have always wanted to trundle around France in one of these.  A girl can dream.

I'll have the white car nearest the camera in the first photo please! Looks like a fun event. Must visit Wentworth before the end of the year, My elder DIL's mum and I keep saying we'll go but I've been away so much we haven't got there yet.

What a brilliant selection of cars. I've never seen the Morris as a motorhome type thing before. And those dinky cars really are so dinky.

One of our neighbours has a camper van which they are gradually 'doing up'! I think I'd go for the car in your last photo - I'm not really a car lover - but I do like those:)
