Event Coverage: Retro Rides Gathering 2013 – Retro & Public Parking Highlights

Words & Photos by Henry Phull

 

Continuing on from our Retro Rides Gathering 2013 coverage, I thought it would be ideal to take a look at some of the cars that caught my eye from the show’s special “Retro Parking” area. Basically for show attendee’s not on a club stand, this was the place to show off their retro cars.

 

 

A rather tidy E32 7 series sitting on M Parallels.

 

 

 

Standing out as usual and representing RollHard – Tom Heap’s 300CE on air.

 

 

 

This original E30 M3 was in impeccable condition.

 

 

 

 

 

 

An E36 sitting on a black set of BBS RTs.

 

 

 

 

 

 

This Mk1 Scirocco was lovely.

 

 

So was this incredibly clean Beetle.

 

 

 

On the other side of the show I decided to also check out the main car park as there are always some gems to be found… this Mustang was the first thing to greet me!

 

 

 

 

 

This Passat works really well with Porsche twists.

 

 

 

A Z3 with some meaty looking tyres!

 

 

A very classy Lexus.

 

 

 

You don’t usually see a completely standard E34 Sport, with the original alloys too.

 

 

Caught this as I was leaving the show, a nice example of a 190E on splits with a decent drop. Very nice.

 

 

Do let us know in the comments if you enjoyed this car park coverage and we’ll look in to doing the same at upcoming shows.
