Steel is Real!

Oh what a night!... woke up slightly jaded and pee'd off.. but my mate Pudzz was Ok and after a hearty breakfast all things we Ok.... We didn't bother with any of that polishing and cleaning malarkey other than just a quick wipe over and we plonked our cars on the show field. Mine with its magnificent for sale signs in all their glory! £18k what a bargain eh!

We then set about a look round the assembled beauties. after a short trip round my camera battery ran out and shut the camera down.. bugger! so that's my excuse as to why there aren't to many photos from the sunday... sorry!

51Chevy Gasser was cool,complete with pedestrian maimer moon tank on the front ;o)

28A pickup sits nice and rare to see an unchopped one.

Mad bumper treatment on this 57 Chevy made it stand out from the crowd. Guess the owner had a few spare overiders when he put it together.. Real nice paint job to.

Not sure of the year probably a mid 30's Chrysler, looked mega straight with that in vogue naked steel finish..

I really do have love of the Fordson Van and this one is a beaut. Reminds me of a paint scheme my mate Smax did on the first Mainline menace Pop.

Rally wheels suit this well put together pick em up!

A proper eclectic mix of cars at the Steel City Show!

I couldn't resist another shot of Roberto Booth's Cool A coupe ala 40's Hot Rod!

Mini- Airstream makes a change from a teardrop!

Either these are very small people or that is one big chair.

Well that was about it really ... oh yeah I nearly forgot my Truck selling saga. It turns out I knew the guy selling the 40 Ford coupe, but I hadn't twigged that I did Derrrr. I met Stuart on the sunday and he told me he had sold the car I was after, I was gutted. Then he told me he wasn't desperate to get rid, it was just not used and in the way. Adding if I had told him I wanted it, he would of kept it for me no problem! Whaaa Whaaa just my own fault for being an indecisive numpty.

So nothing left other than to down camp and sod off home really. This was one of the best runs for being laid back and good crack that I have been to, shame it was to be the last one to be held there as the owners have sold it.. I sure hope the Steel City crew can sort something out to keep the legacy going...

Well that's the end of the season all bar the Northern swap meet, sorry to anyone who has been faithful to my web site for the lack of enthusiasm from me this season by not doing as many write ups or news info as I have in the past. But it has been 11yrs now since I started this and they recon 7yrs is the going rate before going stale.. so I haven't done to bad..

I have enjoyed every bit of it and the people it has got me introduced to is mind boggling and worth it for that alone. People I revere and people I look upon as good friends have all happened because I have done this web site... Yes it's that time again when I think I should hand over the baton to someone fresh and full of enthusiasm, to take this site further and keep it up to date, so if you think that is you, drop me a line and the uk-hotrods site can be your's to take onwards and upwards ;o)
