Old warden airfield is best known for the Shuttleworth collection, an aviation museum, so we took a few snaps of a Tiger Moth and a bonkers Calidus Gyrocopter sat on their grass airstrip before joining the fun around the corner outside Shuttleworth college and the beautiful country house. This is the Classic and Retro show held a few months ago and we took a few pics for your perusal.

There was quite an eclectic mix of cars with MotorPunk favourite the Lancia Delta Integrale parked up with another, a Suzuki Cappuccino. A MK2 Golf GTi with VR6 transplant and a Scirocco storm were the most modern VWs there amongst the Beetles and Campers with families picnicking and enjoying the sunshine. Modified Yank pickups, scooters and classic Fords sat next to some iconic Brits such as Minis, Moggy Minors and a Rover P6 V8.

The coolest of all, though, was a Tatraplan T600. A fascinating car that will feature in detail on MotorPunk in the future. We hope you enjoy the pics.
