North Shore Old Car Club

Topsfield Fairground 22 June 2008


Once again NEMES was invited to participate at the NSOCC show.  I left home at 6:00 AM with a threatening sky but pressed on.  At 8:15 I arrived at the fairground and was the first NEMES member there.  I found the site where we were set up last year and started to put up my canopy.  Les Russell and Herb Cotterly soon arrived and Ed Rodgers followed close behind.  A number of the usual suspects came after a bit and we were set for the day.

At about 2:00 the skies turned dark and antique cars started disappearing at an astonishing rate.  The wind came up and we started taking down canopies and breaking down displays as quick as we could before we got drowned.  Still, it was a fine day and great fellowship.

  Video clip in MPG format

  Same video in WMV format

I am very interested in learning what folks prefer.  If you would kindly take time to watch both and let me know which works better for you on your computer.   The WMV (3.4KB) will probably load much quicker but is of lower quality than the MPG (41.3KB) clip.  A trade off.  I prefer the better quality of the MPG format myself.

I am not much of an old car person but I did wander about taking photos of cars and trucks that caught my eye.

One of my co-workers is an owner and fan of VW Things so these photos are for him.
