Footman James Car of the Year competition – heat two
By: Ben Klemenzson
The skies may have been dark and foreboding, but that didn't put off those tough folks at the AACUK, which hosted the second heat of the Footman James Car of the Year competition.
Taking place at Hatton Country World in an idyllic setting in rural Warwickshire, the bad weather stayed away, despite grey and threatening clouds. Considering the weather the club enjoyed a reasonable turn out of cars, including Rick Skett's amazing 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air, imported by him from Oregon. Not only did it pick up the Footman James Car of the Year trophy, it also won best in show! To read all about it make sure you get August's issue of Classic American, out in July...
