A Rainy Visit to Buster Lang’s Classic Car Show

I absolutely love going to vintage themed events, they’re a great chance to get dressed up and spend a day with Rob and the girls. So when I saw a classic car show was coming to Morden Park for the August bank holiday I was delighted. It’s only a 5 minute walk from my house so I just had to go. I had planned to wear a lovely summer dress and take loads of pictures. But in true British style the weather had other plans. I think the day of the show was literally the wettest day of the year so far. It poured torrentially from the moment we woke up and it certainly wasn’t ideal weather for a day outdoors.

Luckily the event organisers decided to go ahead and brave the storm and after sitting miserably indoors watching the heavens open, we decided to go anyway in the afternoon. The turnout of cars wasn’t amazing, but plenty of car owners did decide to go anyway and it was great to see a few amazing cars there. I didn’t wear my planned outfit and we turned up in our jeans and wellies and hid under our umbrella for the whole time we were there, but I did manage to get a few photos of some of my favourite cars.

Going to events like this makes me and Rob want to buy a classic car even more than we already did, and one day I know we will own one. I’m looking forward to the days when we can turn up with our own vehicle to show off! Do any of you own a classic car?

    So fun! Despite the rain, of course. Seeing the different cars made me think of the Pixar movie, Cars! That old truck is like the real version of Mater (I think that’s his name..)!!

    Pete and I don’t – it’s all on-road parking round our way – but his aunt and uncle have a 50s Morris Minor and a 1930s Austin Seven. Looking after the Austin is a lot of work, as even with lots of love and care it can be cranky!

      I would love a Morris Minor, My dad used to have one which he fully restored so I know he’d be able to help if we got one. Would love to see that Austen Seven!

    Oh how lovely! My uncle has owned several classic cars and they are such a special thing to have- and great fun to ride in occasionally! I do hope you manage to get one soon x

      Thank you! Lucky you getting to ride in them! xxx

    I don’t own a classic car, but I’ve always wanted to (I can remember daydreaming about it at the age of just five!). A 1957 Chevy convertible in either pink or aqua would be my absolute fantasy vintage car!
