Summer Coffee & Chrome Recap

For the second time this year, Footman James brought together hundreds of classic vehicles in the grounds of the historic Chateau Impney Hotel, home of the Chateau Impney Hill Climb, for Coffee & Chrome.

Despite this being a Summer meet, the week preceding the event saw a month's worth of rain fall in a single day in some areas of the country! Luckily, the weather held for us on Sunday and we were able to enjoy Father's Day surrounded by some magnificent classic vehicles.

It was fantastic to see Footman James' partners CBR, The Market and Fisher Restorations bring along some brilliant vehicles.

Plus, classic car clubs were out in force with Devon Cars & Coffee, the JEC Central Region, BMWCC Central West Region and the Midlands Wolseley Region producing some great displays.

This time, we also had a very special guest in attendance - Harry Metcalfe, star of the YouTube channel Harry's Garage! Harry had brought along three very special vehicles from his garage to the Driver's Club at Coffee & Chrome - a Lamborghini Countach, a Ferrari Testarossa and a Jaguar Project 8.

We were also pleased to launch the third edition of our classic newspaper, The FJ Times at the meet! You can pick up a copy at any of the of events we're attending throughout the year including Cars & Coffee at the Classic Motor Hub and Chateau Impney Hill Climb.
