[dropcap]F[/dropcap]or this year’s Father’s Day treat, Hot Rod & Custom Drive-In Day shall be held at Beaulieu on Sunday June 18th with amazing cars and bikes set against the backdrop of live music and style from the custom scene.
The event, being held in association with classic American car club Solent Renegades, will show all manner of wacky, wonderful and colourful machines. Experience the sights, sounds and smells of these imaginative creations, from stripped-out hot rods and mega-powered monsters to cool customs and ‘slammed’ cruisers.
Saturday preceding the Sunday, June 17th , families shall be able to camp with their qualifying vehicles in the grounds of the National Motor Museum for the night, for a two-day celebration. This is the first time the two events have run on the same weekend, for automotive excitement every petrol-head will love.
To start the weekend, Vee Dubs of every type have been invited to join Saturday’s Simply VW, where Volkswagen owners and clubs will showcase their cars, a chance to meet like-minded enthusiasts and show off air-cooled icons such as the Beetle and Karmann Ghia, as well as modern classic, including Golfs, Polos, Sciroccos and camper vans at the Breeze Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles-sponsored event.
Anyone displaying Volkswagen, which meets criteria of pre-1980 classic for Sunday’s Hot Rod & Custom Drive-In Day shall be able to stay overnight with free camping.
The two-day motoring celebration continues with Sunday’s Hot Rod & Custom Drive-In Day when over 500 hot rods and customized vehicles will offer an amazing display. Returning this year is crowd favourite Hard Up Garage with a dramatic display of flame-throwing hot rods and rat rods as it starts up its unique automotive machines.
If you love two and three-wheelers you will also be spoilt for choice by the multitude of bikes and trikes on display, which range from traditional classics to monster-engine trikes.
On both days, refreshments will be served in the Vintage Tea Tent and entertainment will include acts on the main stage as well as 1940s-style swing with Company B UK and Jitterbug Jive dance demonstrations to join in with.
