I don’t know if it’s just me, but seeing the same cars every weekend can get a little tedious. Time to expand the horizons and check out some different shows then… Dips and the guys at The Custom Cars mentioned they were attending this year’s Uxbridge Auto Show with a big stand of theirs and friends BMW’s. I was instantly sold… The show is a well-known West London family charity event put on by The Rotary Club at Uxbridge and open to all cars and clubs, with a large classic following. However, for me the day was a lot more BMW-orientated! Staying up in West London the night before, I was able to meet up with everyone early on the Sunday morning at Custom Cars HQ in Hayes. We then all drove up to the show in Uxbridge together in a convoy of over 20 modified BMW’s, with more meeting us later at the showground. Dips organised one of the biggest stands of the day, so here are my highlights and a few favourites from the rest of the show…

If you are looking for a family oriented car show with a whole mixture of activities, food, bars, trade stands and cars, Uxbridge is definitely one that should be on your list for next year. Although I’ve focused mainly on the BMW’s and lowered cars (as is mandatory over here..) you should be able to tell that there was a wide variation of classic cars. The only sort of show I can compare it to is Wheels Day. If that’s your sort of thing, check it out. A final big thanks to Dips at The Custom Cars for having us on his stand for the day.
