Last year we stopped by St Christopher’s Classic Car Show in Orpington in Kent. It was a nice sized show with a great cross section of classics on display. And the event was all for a good cause, raising money for St Christopher’s Hospice. Last time round we didn’t take our Bertone x1/9 Gran Finale to the show as it was being worked on and wasn’t ready for showing. But this year it was ready for the show (just!) and we parked up with another x1/9 Gran Finale and a Fiat x1/9 1300. It was a great day out with superb weather and an even better selection of cars on display. We got to meet some interesting owners who showed us round their rides and we also spoke to quite a few people who used to own x1/9s back in the day. All had interesting stories to tell.
Because we’ve been so busy filming this year and working on the site, we have only made it to two classic car shows which has been a little annoying. It was great to be back out with our x1/9 and showing it off with lots of other cool classics. We’ll definitely be booking ourselves in for next year. Hopefully we’ll have a few more projects completed on the x1/9 by then.
Below is a selection of some of the cars that caught our eye yesterday. There were some real beauties out for their day in the sun.
