Travelled up to Billing Aquadrome near Northampton yesterday for the American Auto Club International's August Summer Nationals American car show - about 140 miles each way. Worth the trip as the AACI always seem to put on a good show.

More great pics Simon.
I was marshalling on Sunday, I don't remember seeing your car though.
I had a long chat with the lady who owns the '92 Olds, she had driven down from north Wales just for the day.

I had to smile at the tiny old lady who drove the black Lincoln Town Car onto the show field, I wanted to sing "Little old lady from Pasadena" to her :), but didn't want to spoil her day!.

Thanks for posting these, as always. It's awesome to see so many American bruisers in such good shape across the pond.

That black fourth generation TA looks stunning. However, my favorite has to be the goat pictured first.

I didn't see you either! I did see your car though. I was also parked quite near the front, but on the far right hand side near the hospitality trailer. I arrived early-ish while it was still raining.

A Town Car would be fairly normal little old lady transport in the US, but certainly not here!

There's a great pic of your car on the AACI website Simon.
For North American residents if you want to see what a typical British American car show is like then taking a look would give you a good idea.
