Local car meets are the best!

It had been a while since I went to one of these things and I’m so glad I did. The Queen Square Bristol Breakfast Club meets every second Sunday and has some brilliant cars show up. It’s amazing the type of stuff you find out when gathering with other car nuts and talking transmissions, mods, engines, and just cars in general. I don’t mean to sound sappy but it forms a bond that goes beyond race, religion, ethnicity, nationality, gender and all these other barriers humanity has created to separate us.

Walking into Queen Square just as the winter sun came up, the smell of fuel and oil, the rumble of engines and the barks of exhausts; I could go on about it but suffice it to say it felt wonderful. Besides the usual bunch of not-so-tastefully modded hatchbacks (mostly VW Golfs), there were some really cool cars displayed there. Look through the gallery below:

The below video is hilarious! How do you attract attention away from an Aventador and an Aventador Roadster? Install a really loud exhaust on your Clio!

So many wonderful Mazda MX-5s! Most of them were first gen but even the NB does look good. (Image source: Author’s own)
