International rally 2010
In 2010 we travelled to the International rally at Frampton upon Severn, this was my first big trip with my just restored A30. This year we travelled with eight persons consisting of Erik, Hans, Harry, Fokke, Henk, Aad, Bas and myself. Because of the long trip we decided to stop at the Buckinghamshire Railway Center. This museum has a large collection of Railway Locomotives, rolling stock and other memorabilia. This also included the beautifully Restored former Oxford Rewley Road Station. We really enjoyed our visit to the museum.
At the Rally itself we enjoyed one beautiful sunny day and a rainy day with a good turn up of part traders. Sunday we packed up and travelled to Enfield pageant of motoring where we bought a good number of parts for the Austin's. There was a good tum up despite the weather.
The Austin's at theferry, we stopped for a small breakfast. Before setting off on the journey.

On one of the drives round the Severn valley we came across these people that where hang gliding. They explained that it was a popular site to start from and gain altitude. They travel as far as 150 miles. With the use of thermal currents.
My car at the bank of the Severn.
Nice Engine bay of the baby blue Austin which is heavily modified.
I really liked this sunroof built in a blue and silver A30. Other modifications included an electrically powered boot lid and seats with headrests.
It also included a 3rd brake light under the rear window. Nice location.
Enfield included a number of amazing shows. Like this jet powered trike.
I really liked this car. There where a number of really nice cars at Enfield and also there where a good number of part traders. We bough several parts for the Austin's.
