Goodwood Revival

Did I mention that I was going to the Goodwood Revival? Oh just a few times?!
It really was fabulous. I do love vintage cars although I know very little - ok, almost nothing about them.

This Spitfire was a showstopper, we even stopped drinking champagne to watch the air display. Later in the day was the Battle of Britain Memorial formation display which was incredible and also very poignant.

Me and my buddies vintaged up!

These were our neighbours who were staying at the same fabulous boutique B&B as us. Lovely friendly people who's outfits & attention to detail put us to shame!!

Gorgeous 1950's Porsche

Ooooh, D Type Jag. My Dad's kind of car, he used to race one round Devon country lanes when he was a lad. How cool is that? My fastest car in my student days was an XR2 - nippy but no race car. This is seriously sexy & streamlined.

AC Cobras - I wouldn't say no!

How cool is this Aston Martin from the 1930's?

The Glamour Cab girls - pretty impressive eh? Hotter than the average taxi driver !

It really was a wonderful day out, with so much to see that I think I missed a lot of it. It was so exciting that I wasn't even bothered by looking at the vintage clothes stalls - unheard of!!

Most people were dressed from the 1940's to 1960's it was really like going back in time.
I can't wait to go back next year xx


  1. What wonderful cars, I've only seen Goodwood on TV, but it looks like a great time.

  2. I LOVE the Goodwood revival! I usually go and dress up while my husband races, but we couldn't make it this year. Wonderful images - thank you!

  3. I would have loved to be at that show, I am a 61 model, so the Cortina dates from my childhood days. I would have given my left eyetooth to watch the Battle of Britain air show, I love airplanes (but not flying myself)and have seen the movie about 4 times. (very difficult to get a copy of it)

    Lovely blog you have, one of my all time dreams to see the F1 Grand Prix in Monaco, I think that would be an all time high in anyone's life.

    Have a lovely week.



I love reading your comments, plus it reminds me that someone other than my mummy is actually reading my blog!!! he he xx
