Hot Rod and Custom Drive-In Day Beaulieu – 18th June 2017

This was a great day out down south. I visited this show with a friend and his heavily pregnant wife. The day was absolutely beautiful (although rather hot) with glorious sunshine. This meant that I could get some great natural shots with my basic setup. I really enjoyed the selection of cars that were available at this show; and it has further expanded my knowledge of American cars.
