Kent Chrome & Cruisers is the only place you need to go if you’re a fan of all things quirky and retro. It’s not just cars, bikes and scooters, though, as there will be plenty of entertainment to compliment the machinery. Currently confirmed on the line-up are an Autojumble, quality food stalls and bars as well as the all important live entertainment which this year includes a Buddy Holly tribute band at 2pm.

At auction this weekend: RM Sotheby’s Monterey
Monterey car week and the fanfare that surrounds it has long been a staple in the car calendar, we don’t need to tell you that, but of late it seems to have grown ever more in magnitude and been reborn – the American FoS if you will. Throughout California at this moment in time you will see rare and expensive classics being driven around next to the latest and greatest of the modern generation. RM Sotheby’s are holding their Monterey auction this weekend which covers all automotive bases, and you can’t help but be pulled in by what they have for auction.
It’s not every day that you open up an auction listing and see a Peel P50 next to an Aston Martin DBR9. Two special cars in their own right, and for die hard fans of the ‘Old New Top Gear’ ones that both had memorable features on the show, but two cars that have absolutely no business being alongside each other. We guess, however, that is the whole point of Monterey in a nutshell and the effect that RM Sotheby’s were hoping to have on the car loving (and buying) public.
