There is always something of interest to those looking for Italian machinery, apart from the IAMC members who regularly attend.
At their May meeting a group of IAMC members gradually assembled, did the requisite eating, drinking and socialising and then set off on a short but interesting run to The Windmill at Portishead for lunch, where we were joined by a couple more members.
The thing which keeps people returning to the ADC month after month -apart from those mentioned in the first paragraph- is the fact that there is always something new and unusual to see and while the passing members of the public tend to make a fuss over the modern exotics, the enthusiast is just as keen to see things which are rarer and often a lot less valuable. Where else in such a small area could you find things like a Grand Prix Bugatti, a Trabant, sundry Americana, an Austin Gypsy, some Imp variants, a 'Landcrab', a convertible Capri, a Mk1 Escort camper and even a Paramount?!
After taking our lunch overlooking the Bristol Channel, where the conditions were constantly changing, some of our group proceeded to Portishead seafront and then the Marina for a welcome coffee and ultimately, for a few of us, a walk. From there we dispersed, having managed to just about avoid the intermittent light rain which had come on after the dry morning.
