Throughout the vintage car world, rallies and gatherings are held to welcome in the New Year and to exercise dormant vehicles. These range from two friends going for a drive in the country to events like the annual New Year’s Day Meet at the Phoenix Inn pub in Hartley Wintney, England.
The Vintage Sports Car Club loosely organizes the Phoenix Inn meeting, although multiple car and motorcycle clubs participate in the event, making for an interesting mix of vehicles. Participants included pre and post-war Aston Martins, Hispano-Suiza, American muscle cars and hot rods, modern Porsches and Ferraris, Jaguars, Austin-Healey 100S and more. Even a tank joined in on the fun.
Photographer Tim Scott of Fluid Images made the trip to the Phoenix Inn and he offers the following images that capture the diverse line-up of classics that made the trek. To see more from Tim, visit fluidimages.co.uk.
