One of the highlights of the 2016 calendar is the annual Kilbroney Vintage Show, which brings together classic motor vehicles including tractors and even stationary engines along with iconic rally cars and concours show cars from yesteryear, supported by enthusiasts and local motor clubs.

The event has been running for over 30 years at the beautiful Kilbroney Park in Rostrevor and with its laid back atmosphere and stunning surroundings it is a permanent fixture on many enthusiasts diaries.

This year was no exception with several hundred cars and other motor driven machinery on display, in the unprecedented County Down sunshine.   To give an example of how diverse the machinery is at the Kilbroney Vintage Show, one minute you could be drawn to a 911 or an Audi RS, next its an E-Type Jag, Renault Fuego, Montego MG, a Mk2 Fiesta, or the likes of RMS member Neil from Rockvale’s show stopping split screen VW Camper.

What a turnout of stuff today . Some awesome cars on display , forgot to take pics of the cars as I was just enjoying dandering about . I only took a couple of pics of my bus after we arrived and gave it a quick wipe . Had a great chilled afternoon talking nonsense and drinking tea with @56oval . We took it in turns answering the dozens and dozens of people asking how we get over speed ramps lol. 117439

I popped my head in the window for a nosy but then realised you and your son (I presume) were having a bite to eat. So I backed away as it felt like I was staring through someone's living room window lol!! The van looked class buddy.
