Uxbridge Auto Show 2015

A bit late but better than never in July brings us to the next show in the calendar and is arguably the best one just for the amount of cars and variety on display ranging from old classics that are kept dryed stored under wraps to be let out and be admired to modern classics, right through to modified. There is no particular marque that is not welcome and only here will you see cars you probably have never seen or heard of.

The Uxbridge Auto Show is run by the Rotary Club and has been around since 1984 This show is non profit and has raised money for numerous charities over the years.

Taking place at the Middlesex Showground, the huge field is perfect to hold an event such as this.

The days leading up did seem a little dismal and on the morning of the show it wasn't looking promising. Luckily the rain which was meant to be forecast for the morning had not materialised and the sun had cracked open.

The Custom Cars stand was in full flow with a display of cars many known in the BM scene.

Dips bagged M3 with its flawless ruby red paintwork on custom copper OEM style 67 wheels.

Performance BMW magazine editor Liz's bagged E39 540 on Oz superleggera splits
Bentley Continental owned by Spike on custom Trafficstar DTX split wheels.
Chris's E46 Clubsport has gone through a revamp this year with a respray to freshen up the body and a CSL style bumper with a full length carbon splitter and sits pretty on its iForged splits finished in bronze.
Adil's E46 M3 in carbon black has gone through a full makeover courtesy of Dips at Custom Cars with various custom touches including a full carbon fibre GTR bonnet, CSL style carbon fibre boot lid colour coded with a carbon fade out, lowered on coilover and rolling on AC Schnitzer type 2 split wheels.
Three old school classic E30 M3's rolling on rare old school BBS RS, AC Schnitzer Type 1 and Hartge design C.
Rash brought along what is a rare sight on the roads nowadays with this mint E34 M5.

Total M Cars had a good stand with various M3's on display.

Louis E46 M3 with Hartge Design E split wheels:
David's E46 M3 rocking a rare set of Work VS-XX bromachers, AP racing calipers and bucket seats.
Tates stunning E92 was rocking his bronze track wheel setup which looks so much nicer than the AC schnitzer wheels. Please keep them on :-)

Bruno has upgraded in a major way from his "Big Black" E60 M5 to the new M4 coupe which has been released this year. Bruno will no doubt put his own stamp on this car and will be one to look out for.

On to other cars at the show:

Andy's E36 touring looks bang on with M Parallels.
Stunning wide body golf.

AC Cobra replica caught many admirers and enthusiasts alike.
Old school Jaguar.
Unique custom car on display by the London Motor Museum.
Although looking like it has come from the 1930's this car is actually a kit car and features all the classic vintage styling cues from that period.
Classic 60's Mustang.
This custom Ford Anglia is one such example of quirky and something you won't see at any show. Looking like something out of Mad Max with a redesigned body it even featured a BMW 318is engine on display.
With impressive cars on show there is a wide range of trade stands ranging from old classic parts, car cleaning products and plenty of food stalls to keep you watered and fed.

This show is a worthy day out for the family and plenty to keep everyone entertained. Whether your a classic car fan to a Ford nut or just appreciate cars as a whole, mark this one in your calendar for next year.
