Hot rods help warm up a chilly Barbican
VINTAGE wheels took over the Barbican for Devon Hot Rodz monthly meet.
Owners of the impressive fleet of cars and bikes use the gatherings to tap into each other's motor knowledge and catch up with fellow enthusiasts.
Alan Marsh set up Devon Hot Rodz three years ago with fellow enthusiast Malcolm Farrant, to pull together and establish a hot rodding scene in the county.
Alan said: "The monthly meets enable us to catch up with old friends and welcome new people who share our passion for hot rods and the hot rodding scene, so it's great when people like Michael provide us with such a great change in venue.
"We're not a club as such, as there aren't any rules, fees or subscriptions. We're all about the cars and the people who drive them, where we can swap parts and ideas, have a laugh and help each other out, whatever the mechanical challenge.
Devon Hot Rodz encourages the theme of the nostalgia Hot Rod - pre 1974 vehicle's, Hot Rods, British and American trucks and automobiles, VWs, choppers' bobber's, café racer's.
The older the better, the more powerful even better still. However, they still appreciate the well-presented classic and the odd rust bucket.
Hosting this most recent gathering at the weekend were Michael Raddie and Louise Creamer from Cobbles Ices who turned over their Barbican pitch to the vintage vehicle enthusiasts.
Mike has a vintage 1954 Morris J commercial ice cream van from which he serves up nostalgic treats.
