For the final part of our Revival coverage, I'm going to take a look at a couple of different things. One of the things that struck me about the Revival was the sheer scale of it. Now, I'm not naive but the size of the event and the amount of people in attendance was something else.
They came in all shapes and sizes, some in military uniforms of the allied forces, others in colourful sixties clothing.
Full size garages were recreated for the event, every little detail was just perfect.
Even the Tesco staff were decked out in the traditional uniform of the period.
There were countless actors around the place, playing out scenes – One of my personal favourites was this Laurel & Hardy duo who provided the assembled crowd with some great laughs.
Even the promotional girls were classily dressed and suited to the era.
There were a lot of famous motorsport faces about, although this gentleman is better known for his voice …
The trade area was filled with clothes for both him …
… and her.
There were also some things for the diecast fans. I'm glad I left my wallet with my girlfriend for the day or else I'd be eating cold beans for the next month.
The external show which was open to everyone, could of been a three day event in itself.
There were little gems hidden just about everywhere.
I'm sure I'll be corrected if I'm wrong on the model number but this 356 was just beautiful.
This caged Ford Popular would hint at the variety of cars on show.
Making our way back through the regular public carpark were a few nice spots – this Porsche 911 being one.
You know the Elise is small when a Ford Ka looks big beside it.
The most recent Aston Martin, the Rapide looks stunning in the flesh.
I don't know if the same can be said of it's German rival, the Panamera. It's seems a bit of a love / hate car but I'm quite fond of it.
There is no arguing however, with the looks of the Maserati Gran Turismo. Beauty defined.
This NSX was hiding away amongst everything.
I'm unsure whether some of you will agree with me or not, but having spent all this time with some of the most beautiful cars ever made and walking out of the event to be greeted by the likes of the above, it opened my eyes that we are living with some truely great designs today. I wonder what of the current crop of cars will be pride of show at the Revival in fifty years time ?
