In best football commentator cliche speak, The Nationals was a show of two halves this year. Not just because of the coming together of the modified and hotrod scenes but due to the weather too. Saturday was wet, rainy and generally depressing with a subdued atmosphere but on Sunday we were over the moon when clouds parted and the sun shone brightly enough to quash the giant collective hangover from the night before leaving no-one feeling as sick as a parrot, Brian.
It all began like this; wet cars, grey skies and a very subdued atmosphere for what is usually a very upbeat show.
Everyone was looking for somewhere to avoid the rain.
But fortunately, there were plenty of indoor areas to explore with some of the country’s best show cars.
Last year saw the addition of the Hot Rod and Custom American Car Show and it was back this year, bigger and better.
Finding hot rods like this tucked away in barns seems quite fitting.
Expect to see more of this particular rat rod soon.
Sunday came and so did the blue sky, bringing with a lot more visitors.
While Faye got the Performance Direct stand ready, everyone else was washing yesterdays mud off their cars.
Well, almost everyone…
And to wrap things up, what’s a car show with out the Performance Direct girls?
