The Beaulieu Autojumble is Back, Baby!

By Chris Pollitt

Beaulieu is calling for everyday cars of the Sixties, Seventies and Eighties to join its new display Forgotten Favourites, part of the award-winning International Autojumble which will return on Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th September. If you’re looking for those rare, seemingly impossible to find parts for your beloved classic, there is no better event to attend. It’s akin to being able to rummage through the garage of every classic enthusiast in the land, but all in one place. Perfect! And this year, there is a special display of the cars the time forgot, to intersperse the parts rummaging.

Honouring the cars of 1960-1990 that used to be on every street corner, but are now long-forgotten, the nostalgia-fuelled display will bring back memories of family holidays, driving lessons, baking hot vinyl seats and beige colour schemes, with long-lost first cars, family wagons, scarce saloons and historic hatchbacks of the past. Yeah, shows that are brimming with Lamborghini this and Ferrari that are nice and everything, but they don’t exactly tickle the old memory banks, do they? This one will though, with all manner of ‘my dad had one of those’ cars on display.

Is your much-loved pre-1990 historic motor the sort of everyday car that is now rarely seen on the roads? Perhaps it’s just like the one you learned to drive in, or reminds you of the car your parents drove back in the day? Then apply to be considered for the display by visiting this site. Places are limited and show entry is free for vehicles that are accepted. Successful owners will receive a pair of three-day entry wristbands for International Autojumble.

From the Vauxhall Chevette, Renault 16, Austin Allegro and Datsun Bluebird, to the Volkswagen Polo, Citroen CX, Triumph Toledo and Volvo 240, not to mention the scarcely-seen DAF 66, Talbot Samba and many more besides… all examples are welcome. The more the merrier in fact. This is a celebration, and the team at Beaulieu want you to be a part of it. So dust off that classic and get it booked in.
