Photos from CarFest South

Despite the rain and sometimes absolute downpours - CarFest South was a huge success.  21 car clubs were represented including our very own - AMOC!!  12 different groups of cars particpated in the Hill Climb, Astons were featured in 8 of those groups including the 'Anniversary Seven', 'Supercar Seven', 'Motorsport Seven', 'Million Pound Seven', 'Unusual Seven' with our very own Trust Lagonda, 'Nick Mason's Celebrity Seven', 'Seven Design Classics', and the 'Gorgeous Seven'.  Well Done Aston for having such a great presence.

Display Cases

It has been a very quiet summer at the Barn but great things are about to happen. The first of five new display cases began installation today! The main case is in place and appears to hover over the beams. The remaining 4 cases, doors and shelves will be installed next week.
