Fraggle Report ~ Druridge Bay Vintage Rally ~ August 2017

Sophie and I went off to visit Druridge Bay, a manmade lake, Watersport place and Nature reserve.  However when we got there we saw they were having a vintage rally so we decided to do that instead.  Lots of old cars and enginey things to look at and photograph.

Lots of dogs too of course

vintage tractors were popular

an old cow milker

not sure what this was for, didn’t like the look of the fluorescent liquid that was produced!

I guess it is some sort of pump, as is this next one

 

no idea what this one does

this one is easy

there was a vintage fairground game

and vintage tattoo’s

vintage bikes too, but that seat didn’t look comfortable!

next time we’ll see some of the cars and vans so stay tooned!

  1. You had my juices flowing with the tractor and milking machine…how sad is that 🙂 Looks like a fun dat out, but I hope that guy reads the instruction manual before the unknown machine explodes!

  8. We used to go to steam rallies a bit and I think the machine being guarded by the comic-reading chap is just an engine and you’d just attach something that needs to turn to the wheel or the shaft. A fun day out, though.
