Yet another fantastic Sunday Scramble, bringing in 2019 in style. Unlike last year which was cold enough to freeze the balls off a middle aged petrolhead or whatever the saying is. 2019 was relatively warm and the sun actually came out.
As always Bicester Heritage attracts some very desirable classics from Trabants to Singer 911s. Of course, the specialist heritage car companies that live here permanently have their own cars and projects to peruse.
